The Benefits of Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

Most homes, especially those built before the last decade, use smoke alarms which work independently. However, as home and building safety has continued to adapt and manifest, Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarms have begun taking precedence. 

Put in layman’s terms; these alarms are networked together using an interconnected system. They can detect smoke via the visible signs of combustion, such as cloudiness in the room or changes to how a light source reflects. They can also notice smoke much faster, which can allow families to evacuate promptly to avoid disaster. 

As they are all connected, they also alert the entire household. If one alarm were to go off, all alarms would soon follow suit. These systems, therefore, are renowned for their ability to promote increased safety and improve the chances of a successful evacuation. They are proven to save lives.

They also come with many additional benefits, as long as you stay safe and fire-free. These include: 

Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Provide Full Household Coverage 

Fire spreads rapidly. Residential fires in Australia kill more people per year than floods and other natural disasters. Having one central smoke alarm system may mean people in other parts of the building will not hear the alarm sound, placing them at extreme risk. This risk is only multiplied when modern appliances, such as TVs, headphones and gaming consoles, are considered, as they can drown out the sound of smoke alarms. 

Utilising an interconnected system throughout the home, such as our Premier Range Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarm with 10-year battery x 5 pack, can guarantee that every member of the home hears the alarms as soon as they sound. Paired with a home fire safety plan, this can significantly increase the chances of making a safe escape and protecting as much damage to the home as possible. 

These smoke alarm systems are also easy to install and ensure homes, office buildings and warehouses are better protected in an emergency.

Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Are Wireless

Interconnected Smoke Alarm Systems aren’t new to the market. But, they have continuously developed over the past few years. In the past, these systems could only be interconnected via hardwiring to the home. This meant that on top of the cost of the smoke alarm system, building owners would need to pay electricians or product installation teams to integrate the system throughout their roofing – an expensive exercise. Fortunately this is no longer the case with wireless radio frequency (RF) technology.

The Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Australia team is passionate about supplying the best smoke alarm systems. We provide a range of wireless systems in our online store, which can be purchased individually, in packs of five or in packs of ten. These systems are battery-operated and can be easily tested to guarantee they are operational. Packaged options also come equipped with a remote control, making testing and silencing the alarms easier.

Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Are More Sensitive To Smouldering Fires 

Our interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms detect smoke particles rather than ‘smelling’ it, as radioactive ionisation smoke detectors do. For this reason, they are more sensitive to smouldering fires, such as fires caused by short-circuited wires. These smouldering fires may take a long time to alight and are hard to notice, meaning they can go long undetected. Though these fires are initially more low-risk than a flaming fire, they can quickly lose control and cause monumental damage to a home and family. 

Detecting these fires early through an interconnected photoelectric smoke alarm system means they can be quickly managed with the help of emergency services. It also gives the individuals time to evacuate the building calmly to prevent injury.
