Ionisation smoke alarms 'feel' the smoke. They detect invisible particles of combustion, eg from cooking toast. They activate more quickly for fast, flaming fires with little visible smoke.


Advantages of ionisation smoke alarms


  • Slightly cheaper than other types of smoke alarms

  • Very good with fast flaming fires with little visible smoke

  • Less prone to false alarms caused by dust and steam

  • Suitable for general use
Disadvantages of ionisation smoke alarms
  • Can be susceptible to nuisance alarms if placed too close to cooking

  • May be slow to respond to slow smouldering fires

  • Contain a very small amount of radioactive material

Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

Photoelectric smoke alarms 'see' the smoke. They detect visible particles of combustion, eg smouldering cigarette smoke. They respond to a wide range of fires, but they are particularly responsive to smouldering fires and the dense smoke given off by foam filled furnishings or overheated PVC wiring.


Advantages of photoelectric smoke alarms

  • Good for smouldering fire and dense smoke

  • Not as prone to cooking nuisance alarms as ionisation alarms

  • Contain no radioactive material

  • Suitable for general use


Disadvantages photoelectric smoke alarms

  • Slightly more expensive than ionisation alarms

  • Nuisance alarms can occasionally occur from dust and insects

  • They must be kept clean
