Did You Know...

Smoke alarms are not the same as smoke detectors.
Most homes have what we now call "smoke alarms." These units detect the presence of smoke and sound the alarm. Many properties, particularly some multi-family complexes and newer single-family homes, have smoke detectors that are components of an alarm system with a panel. The detection unit itself does not necessarily sound the alarm. Instead, the signal is transmitted to the control unit that then sounds the alarm throughout the premises. Older studies of smoke detectors usually studied devices that would now be called smoke alarms.
