Do I Need Professional Smoke Detector Installation?
Many homeowners use cheap battery-operated smoke detectors that are simply fixed to the wall or ceiling. But are these enough to ensure the safety of your family and property? A much safer option is to have an interconnected, hard-wired smoke detection system installed in your residence.
Hard-wired smoke detectors are connected directly to your home’s electrical system and use batteries as a back-up measure. But because the smoke detectors are powered by your home’s electrical system, they continue to work even if the batteries are never replaced.
An interconnected smoke detector system can, and has, saved lives. The smoke detectors can communicate with each other and with your smart devices. This means when one detects smoke or fire, all the alarms will sound.
For both hard-wired and interconnected smoke detection systems, you should contact a qualified electrician for installation. When your electrical system is involved, it’s always safer to have a trained professional do the job.
