Smoke is registered by the smoke detector and the alarm is triggered in the very beginning of the fire, before the burst of flames. It is considered that these fire detectors are especially effective in closed premises where in normal conditions there is no smoke. This basic battery-operated smoke alarm is powered by a 9-volt battery (included), providing continuous protection even during power outages.
Install a smoke alarm device on the ceiling or wall inside each bedroom and in the hallway outside each separate sleeping area. If a bedroom area hallway is more than 30 feet long, install a smoke alarm device at each end. If there is a basement: install a smoke alarm device on the basement ceiling at the bottom of the stairwell.
