When should smoke detectors be checked?

Circumstances of the fire, the detection equipment, and occupant characteristics must be considered when evaluating smoke alarm performance.

This difference could have an impact on detection criteria and hence the alarm time for photoelectic smoke detectors since they alarm based on the scattering properties of the smoke.

These characteristics of smoke detector usage and acquisition should be considered in targeting future intervention strategies.

This is critical in scenarios where traditional smoke detectors cannot be installed.

The sensors are best for combination with other techniques, such as smoke detectors.

Alarm algorithms utilizing ionization detector smoke measurements proved to be more effective than measurements from photoelectric detectors.

However, the learning of smoke representation in the detectors will be restricted by the appearance gap between real and synthetic smoke samples, which will cause a significant performance drop.
