The drawbacks of traditional smoke alarms in [[targetlocaion]]
Protecting your home from fire is a crucial consideration, and smoke detectors take on a critical part in keeping your family safe. However, smoke detectors have some shortcomings. For instance, they can only detect smoke, not extreme temperatures. In the event there is an emergency in your home, you may not be alerted before the smoke ascends to the smoke detector. While there are some other telltale signals of fire -- like a sharp heat increase -- if there's no smoke, you will fail to get a sounding of your smoke detector.
Additionally, smoke detectors only beep if they encounter an adequate amount of smoke. If a fire creeps along slowly at first, you may not be cautioned until the flames are out of control. Various smoke detectors employ more than one sensor, meaning they will detect smoke from both a raging fire and smoldering remnants. If they do go off, it’s required of the homeowner to call emergency services after safely leaving the residence.
