There are two main types of smoke alarm: ionisation and photoelectric.

  • Ionisation smoke alarms detect small smoke particles: these detectors can be set off by nuisance smoke (such as when you burn the toast!) and are usually battery powered.
  • Photoelectric smoke alarms, meanwhile, are activated when particles enter a light chamber. Photoelectric smoke alarms not only provide better protection, they also don’t go off by mistake (as long as they’re properly installed) and can be mains powered – so no more nuisance alarms or forgetting to change the battery.

If you’re still running an old-style ionisation alarm, it’s time to upgrade. Just-In Time’s experience and expertise means we can install photoelectric and interconnected systems in the most effective positions in your property quickly and with minimal disruption to your daily life.
