Properly installed and maintained commercial smoke detectors are one of the best ways to provide an early warning sign when a fire begins, therefore protecting your employees, customers, property, and inventory. Commercial smoke detectors are either conventional or analog, and are wired to security monitoring systems or fire alarm control panels. These detectors don't need to have built-in alarms because once connected to the fire alarm control panel, it’s the control panel itself which will prompt strobes and sirens, plus call for help when needed.
Home Security Store’s smoke detectors are conventional. This means they will communicate with the fire alarm control panel simply by changing state from high impedance to low impedance when smoke is detected. A typical commercial fire alarm control panel can usually monitor a number of zones or loops of detectors which can be arranged to correspond to different areas of a building. In the event of a fire, the fire alarm control panel should identify which zone contains the detector or detectors in alarm, but it's not able to identify which individual detector or detectors is in an alarm state.
Home Security Store’s conventional smoke detectors are made up of the System Sensor’s i3 series. The i3 family is founded on three principles - installation ease, intelligence, and instant inspection. It is has been well established that working smoke alarms in general save lives, prevent injuries, and minimize property damage by alerting people to an occurring fire hazard. However, if you own a business, the risk in property damage and liability is that much greater, which means your responsibility is greater as well.
