ABOUT FIRE ALARMS
Modern residential fire alarm systems are normally combined with burglar alarms. A master control unit is connected to sensors through low voltage wiring, or through narrowband radio frequency signal. Sensors include smoke, heat and fire detectors, also movement sensors (some of which are designed to ignore movement of pets), and sensors which detect the opening of a door. When triggered, the fire and burglar alarm systems will activate a horn, siren, or flashing light. Burglar alarms can be organized into zones within the house. For example, the first floor can be treated as one zone, which can be set independently from the second floor.
Fire and burglar alarms can be connected to central control stations via the telephone network. Operators at the central station check for false alarms and notify the fire or police department.
