- Determine what type of power source smoke alarms would be best for your home. Some are battery operated making installation easier, some have to be electrically wired, while others require electrical installation but also have a battery back-up function in case of a power outage.
- Where should they be installed? Check with your local fire agency, they will have very specific installation guidelines and legal fire code requirements for your area.
- What special features do you prefer? There are many features to choose from such as remote control functions, silence features, lighting, additional detection sensors, and there are even some that have a feature to record a parent’s instructions to their children, in the event it is activated. Advance technologies have made possible features to detect how serious the threat is.
