Types of Smoke Detectors

There are two basic types of smoke detectors:

  • Ionization smoke detectors are very responsive to actively burning fires. There is a small amount of radioactive material in these smoke detectors, held within an ionization chamber. The ionization causes a current to flow between the electrically charged plates. When smoke makes its way into this chamber, it reduces the current flow by disrupting the ions, and the alarm sounds.
  • Photoelectric smoke alarms respond better to fires that smolder for some time before flames really break out. Light is aimed at a sensing chamber within the alarm, angled away from a sensor. When smoke enters, the light reflects on the sensor, and the alarm will go off.

Using both types of alarms is recommended for comprehensive coverage. You may invest in different alarms of different styles, or opt for combination alarms that use both of these technologies.
