Heat Detectors

  • Heat detectors are often used where smoke detectors would be a nuisance, such as in a kitchen.
  • Only when the ambient heat reaches a certain temperature will the alarm sound – or if another interconnected smoke alarm sounds, the interconnection will set off any heat detectors and smoke detectors connected to it.
  • See also smoke detectors and where they are required.
