There are various types of smoke detectors which vary in design, style, mode of operation among other differences and they may include the following:-
Aico Ei140 Range smoke and heat alarms
This is a type of smoke detector which is designed for those people who may be very strict on the amount of money that they need to spend. These types of detectors are made in a way that they do not require cell back-up as those of lithium cells hence the aspect of operation and maintenance becomes easier and cheaper. They are equipped with alkaline batteries instead of the rechargeable cells which therefore means that it can always work as opposed to using cells which will need recharging hence not fulfilling its primary objective of detecting smoke.
They are friendly in terms of saving because of their unique Easi-fit technology which makes them not to require many things such as wiring enclosures, leads among others. This technology of Easi also makes them easy to mount on any type of wall hence not limited to specific walls. This is a very important aspect in smoke detectors as it will enable the mounting of the detectors in most places so that they can be able to sense any fire outbreak hence increasing the safety of those people in the building or home.
These series of smoke detectors and alarms are designed for those people who demand very high standards of safety, reliability and performance. This is made possible through linking the detector with a Radio Link system which enhances its range as compared to other types of detectors. This type of detector is very sensitive and external power faults and failures are well taken care of by rechargeable vanadium pent oxide cells which guarantee you a service of more ten years. These smoke detectors are very accurate hence preventing false alarms which may not be caused by serious smoke or fire in the house for example.
These are types of detectors which are mostly used in environments where the detection of smoke may be a difficulty. These types of detectors use the thermistor technology in providing the response and they have a low profile design which senses danger thus rising of the alarm.
There are various types of securefast Ge fire alarms which operate on the same principle but at different temperatures. This therefore means that these detectors will be able to sense and raise an alarm at specific fixed temperatures which implies that before those temperatures are attained, they will not send any signal and this may be safe.
Aico 240v mains heat alarm
These detectors are very sensitive to high temperatures and they are specifically designed for those areas where there could be false alarms due to some normal smoke such as in the kitchen and in the garage. These detectors are made in a way that they are able to detect higher temperatures and smoke which may otherwise be dangerous to those around through the LED lights which are fitted in them. They are also fitted with lithium batteries with a lifespan of more than 10 years and may not be affected by high temperatures.
