WHAT TYPES OF SMOKE DETECTORS ARE THERE?
There are many smoke alarms - but what are the differences? And which smoke detector is the right one for you? Here is a brief overview:
Optical smoke alarms
trigger the alarm as soon as smoke enters the measuring chamber of the detector - they therefore detect the visible smoke particles. They are unsuitable for kitchens and bathrooms because water vapour and cooking steam can trigger false alarms. More about the optical smoke detector RWM160
Smoke detector with heat warning function
additionally analyse the temperature changes in the room. Therefore, they are also suitable for use in kitchens and bathrooms. More about the RWM250 with heat warning function
In addition to stand-alone smoke detectors that are not networked with each other, there are radio smoke detectors: If a smoke detector triggers an alarm, the alarm also goes off in all others that are within radio range. If you live in a large flat or house, you will notice the fire hazard - no matter which room you are in. More about the radio smoke detector RWM165
Radio smoke detectors or smoke detectors that are
part of an alarm system
offer special convenience: For example, you can connect our wireless smoke detector FURM35000A to the Smartvest alarm system. In the event of fire smoke or an unusual rise in temperature, the alarm tone warns you via all wireless smoke detectors that are integrated in the network and via the Smartvest control centre - a push message via app or email also informs you of smoke development when you are on the move.
