A smoke detector is used to determine whether there is smoke within a building and will trigger an audible warning if one is detected.

A smoke detector consists of two parts – A sensor to detect smoke and a horn to alert people to the presence of smoke. Most smoke detectors operate using either a "battery only" system or a 240V mains power supply with a battery backup (i.e. hard-wired).

There are a few different types of smoke alarms available. These include photoelectric alarms, ionisation alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and heat detectors.

Photoelectric alarms have the ability to detect fire through dust or visible particles that can be caused by smouldering fires. They are highly reliable and are less likely to cause false alarms. Photoelectric smoke alarms have been the only type recommended by Australian Fire Authorities, Fire Brigades and the International Association of Fire Fighters.

Ionisation alarms, on the other hand, can usually detect particles of smoke through fast flaming fires which is what makes them slightly less popular. As compared to the photoelectric alarm, these ones are slower; and slow smoke alarms can cause a lot of damage to the house and you.

Smoke detectors should be installed in every bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. You should also install one outside every sleeping area (e.g., hallway). If you live in an apartment, you should place them near the doorways.

To get effective results, it is best to call qualified electricians who know exactly where to put your smoke detector. Forever Electrical will ensure that your devices are placed away from any sources of heat, air conditioning, fans, and other electrical installations.
