Water leaks can cause flooding, which can put some homeowners out of business and put their safety at risk. For this reason, a water leak detection system is ver...

Things You Need to Know About Heat Detector

What is a heat detector? Simply put, a heat detector or heat alarm is a device used to detect any significant increase in temperature that might indicate an imminent fire. If a fire breaks out in the vicinity of the alarm, the convective heat energy of the flame increases the temperature of the thermal element in the heat detector. Once this happens, the element triggers an alarm, which then so...

The Difference Between Smoke Detectors and Heat Detectors

Both smoke detectors and heat detectors are used to detect fires. When one of the sensors is paired with the alarm system, it will send an alert to the panel when activated. This action will generate an alert event on the system. This triggers all sirens and sirens, alerting everyone. The difference between smoke detectors and heat detectors is how they are activated. Smoke detectors activate w...

The Types of Heat Detectors

What Is a Heat Detector? A heat detector is a device that senses the heat in a room. Its purpose is to alert homeowners and business owners of a fire before it becomes irreversible.
