Overview of Wireless Smoke Detector
Smoke Detectors are devices that can detect the presence of fire or a potential outbreak of fire in a building. Photoelectric smoke detectors are more responsive to smoke particles that are generated by smouldering fires.
Addressable smoke detectors are suitable for large building complexes and can be easily customized in a variety of ways. These devices can pinpoint the exact location of fire through the fire alarm control panel which makes it easy to take necessary action to reduce catastrophic effects of fire. Battery operated Wireless smoke detectors requires no cabling and can be installed easily at any location.
Each device have an unique identification tag and they utilize radio waves to interconnect with other devices and control panels. The battery operated detector wakes up at regular intervals and checks for the presence of smoke. When the level of smoke falls above the threshold limit, it transmits alarm signals to the fire alarm control panel which in turn triggers the appropriate sirens and hooters to warn the occupants.
Wireless detectors offer the flexibility to relocate the sensors in the event of layout modifications during construction and can also be easily integrated into a remote monitoring system.
