  8. low voltage smoke alarms A smoke alarm is a device that detects smoke as a warning sign of a fire. As part of a fire alarm system, commercial smoke detectors send a signal to a fire alarm control panel.Fires can start in any part of your house and spread quickly. However, having a smoke alarm is the first and most important step toward your family’s safety, regardless of where or how it is installed. A smoke alarm, to put it simply, detects smoke and sounds an alarm. Smoke alarms are affordable and can be networked so that any detector that activates sounds all alarms. They are powered by mains energy and have a smoke alarm battery backup that is either disposable or rechargeable. In some countries, wires are needed in new smoke alarm installations.
