The drawbacks of standard smoke alarms in [[targetlocaion]]
Protecting your home from fire is important, and smoke detectors take on a vital role in shielding your family. However, smoke detectors have their drawbacks. For instance, they can only react to smoke, not heat. When there is a blaze starting in your home, you might not be warned unless the smoke rises to the smoke detector. While there are further significant signals of fire -- like a sudden increase in warmth -- if you don’t have smoke, there is no warning from your smoke detector.
Additionally, smoke detectors only sound the alarm if they find an adequate amount of smoke. If a fire starts small, you may not be cautioned until the situation is out of hand. Many smoke detectors utilize dual sensors, meaning they will detect smoke from both roaring flames and smoldering remnants. Whenever they sound their alarm, it falls to the occupant to contact the fire department after they safely leave the property.
