Smoke detector

Smoke detector

What is the smoke detector?

On detection of smoke, the wireless optical smoke detector will raise two alarms.

Firstly a local audible alarm, and secondly a vital signal, will be automatically sent to the Lifeline home units and other Tunstall telecare enabled systems.

This in turn will immediately raise a call to the 24 hour monitoring centre and an experienced operator will alert the emergency services.

Because the process is automatic and immediate, the risks to life and property are reduced. By using wireless technology, there is minimal disruption to fixtures and fittings during the installation process and detectors can be easily relocated should the need arise.

How does it work?

When activated, the smoke detector transmits an alarm call via the dedicated European social alarm frequency to Tunstall telecare enabled systems.

These will then automatically raise a call to the monitoring centre or carer to enable the recipient to identify what type of detector has initiated the call, allowing the most appropriate and immediate action to be taken.

Why is it needed?

Fire poses one of the most serious threats to people at home and its effects are devastating.

Every year fires in the home cause hundreds of deaths and damage many thousands of homes.

Homes equipped with smoke detectors continue to discover fires more rapidly than those without, and are associated with lower casualty rates and less damage.

Installing wireless smoke detectors is a simple and straightforward method of providing a monitored fire detection system in the home.

Who is it for?

The smoke detector is for anyone who is at risk in their home and requiring additional peace of mind.
