How Does a Smoke Detector Work?

There are a few different ways in which a smoke detector can register the presence of smoke in your home. Photoelectric models will sound the alarm when smoke enters the device and causes a refraction of light. Ionization models, on the other hand, emit a very small amount of radiation, and the alarm goes off when smoke interrupts the alpha particles therein. Regardless of the model that you use, it is important that they are installed by a trained, experienced professional, preferably hard wired into your electrical system and armed with a battery backup, helping to make the device as fool safe as possible.
