Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Save Lives!

Almost four decades of research has shown that the most popular smoke alarm, which is in 90% of homes in America, is failing at an alarming rate.

These ionization smoke alarms are alerting tens of minutes slower than the other type, photoelectric smoke alarms, in the deadly smoldering stage of a fire. They are also more prone to nuisance false alarms from ordinary cooking and steam from showers. Get the facts here, and get safe alarms!

The Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Information pages on this site contain extensive information about the differences in detector technology, real-world testing results, examples of legislation enacted across the country ensuring photoelectric smoke alarms are specified in applicable codes, and other resources.
