What does a domestic fire protection system look like?

In the home, a simple mains powered smoke alarm system with battery backup and wired interconnection is the standard. The most common types of detector in the home are optical and heat. Optical smoke detectors are good at detecting slower burning fires and smoke from electrical fires, for example. Heat detectors are used in kitchens to avoid false alarms from minor things like burned toast. They detect a swift rise in temperature which could indicate fire.

How often should I test my smoke alarms?

We’re based in Cambridge, where the local fire department recommend testing your smoke alarms every month. A good tip is to write a calendar reminder on the first day of every month.
