There are 4 main categories of smoke or fire alarms. These alarm systems can work on a process of ionisation, photo electrics, heat or some combination. Ionisation fire alarms are the cheapest and will detect small smoke particles produces by fast burning flames. Optical fire alarm systems are more effective at detecting thicker smoke such as that produces by a smouldering fire. Heat alarms detect increases in temperature and are often installed in kitchens.
Dual sensor alarms are more popular since they can detect more types of fire. They contain both ionization and photoelectric sensors. This means they can alert you if there is smoke from a smouldering fire or smoke from a fast burning fire.
Irrespective of the type of fire alarm system you need to consider ease of installation, battery backup, nuisance buttons, warranties, package deals as well as the possibility of interconnected units
