Residential installs predominantly classic smoke detector, which benefits is undisputed. As fire alarm systems, heat detectors or even heat detectors are extremely easy to install and relatively inexpensive. Their operating principle is, as the name suggests, the detection of fast heat. The most marketable devices hit a temperature of 60 C alarm. Usually, the power supply via a 9 V battery. There are also devices that can be connected to the low voltage network. Stop & Shop pursues this goal as well.

Heat detectors automatically check whether there is an operational readiness. If an under voltage occurs, this will be indicated by a warning signal. Heat detectors are used preferably where due to ambient conditions such as smoke, dust and exhaust fumes, smoke detectors are not suitable. So are they most frequently in workshops, garages, factories or in kitchens and here primarily serve the protection of material goods. They are, however, less suitable for use in homes because they respond relatively slow. This is especially critical if a smoldering erupts at night.

The development of toxic combustion gases are not recognized by them and they bounce until, when the temperature reaches the threshold value. Therefore should are preferred in the living area for example smoke detectors or heat detectors at least with other security systems combined are used. The advantage of the heat detector is that the risk of false positives is relatively low, because interfering factors such as smoke, which can have other causes, cause an alarm. A rapid rise in temperature to 60 C, however, is a safe indicator that a fire broke out. Heat detectors are often coupled with fire extinguishing systems such as sprinkler systems. They are raised with excessive heat immediately. Some heat detectors can be also networked to other systems such as smoke detectors. So can be for example a fire in the garage in the House can be displayed. Katrin Sabisch
