    How Often Should You Replace Your Smoke Detectors?

    A smoke detector is a device which detects smoke, usually indicating a fire. Commercial fire monitoring systems activate a fire alarm control panel whereas residential smoke detectors (commonly known as smoke alarms) provide a local audible or visual alarm from the detector itself. The smoke detectors are kept in plastic enclosures and can detect smoke both optically (photoelectric) and through a physical process (ionization). A central fire alarm system is usually used to power smoke detectors. Residential smoke detectors can either be individual battery-powered units or have numerous interlinked mains-powered units with battery backup. All the interlinked units are triggered if any one of the units detects smoke.
