Smoke detectors work on two principles namely ionization detectors and photoelectric detectors. If you have a big house or spacious house then make sure to install smoke detectors in every rooms and balconies. And never think about your budget while installing smoke detectors because whatever you are doing it is for the safety of your family. When there is any smoke coming, the smoke detectors detects the smoke and starts making sound and make you alert. One of the best features of smoke detector is interconnected smoke detectors.

These interconnected smoke detectors are of two types- analog or conventional. These are controlled by fire alarm systems and security alarm system. These are quite expensive than single alarm systems. You can see these types of detectors in many malls, hospitals, trains etc. These are also seen in many homes. The best advantage of this is when there is any smoke coming out from any specific area it can alarm the whole place like malls and makes you alert.

One of the major responsibilities of you is to check the alarm at least once in a month. Due to many technical reasons some alarms stops working without even giving you warning. Imagine yourself in a house sleeping peacefully and where there is fire breakout, then who is going to alarm you because your smoke detector is out of the service since many months. So it is better to check your alarm system every month to avoid danger. Every smoke detector is given with a test button to check its shelf life.
