c smoke detector. Smoke inhalation can cause more death than fires that cause burns. Smoke can also damage structures, made of metal or wood.
There are two types of basic smoke detectors exist. The ionization detector uses a tiny chamber to capture particles in the air. It sets off the alarm if the particles are large enough. Photoelectric sensors use an ionizing beam that can scatter when disturbed by smoke, and cause an alarm. More sophisticated “smart” sensor uses a heat detection mechanism that will be activated when there is an increase in temperature of air in the room or particular area. Co2 detectors and smoke detectors can detect visible elements from a fire as well as invisible, yet deadly carbon gasses.
If you’re contemplating a security and fire alarm system for your house or workplace, first contemplate the importance of having smoke detectors. They should be available at all fire extinguisher stores as well as service centers.
