Frequently Asked Questions

What are photoelectric smoke sensors?

These sensors use a light source (usually an LED) and a light sensor (usually a photodiode) to detect smoke particles in the air. This causes the sensor to send a signal to the smoke detector triggering an audible alarm to alert occupants of the building.

What is peak-level memory?

A peak level memory is a feature found in CO alarms that allows to record the highest level of carbon monoxide (CO) when detected. This information can be useful for emergency responders to determine the exact value for quick action.

How can I prevent carbon monoxide exposure?

  • Install carbon monoxide alarms on every level and outside sleeping areas.
  • Have the heating system, vents and chimney inspected every year by a qualified technician.
  • Inspect vents and chimneys for improper connections, visible rust and stains.
  • Purchase appliances that have been approved by a nationally recognised testing laboratory to ensure safety.
  • Keep cars or fuel-powered equipment in open areas to prevent the entry of carbon monoxide inside the facility through vents and doors.

Where should I install carbon monoxide alarms?

Carbon monoxide alarms should be installed at least 15 feet away from fuel-burning appliances (like gas range / stove, gas clothes dryer or fuel-burning heater) and make sure that nothing is covering or obstructing the unit. Keep the alarms away from dead air spaces or next to a window or door.

What is the function of the Kidde fire alarm pull station?

Kidde's fire alarm pull stations are installed on a wall in commercial buildings to provide a manual means of triggering the fire alarm system in the event of a fire or emergency.
