Proper Smoke Detector Placement
The proper placement of smoke detectors is crucial for their effectiveness. Here are the recommended locations for smoke detector placement:
At least one smoke detector on every level of your home, including basements.
One inside every sleeping room.
Outside of each sleeping area (such as common hallways).
One at the highest point inside your home (like vaulted ceilings).
Many smoke detectors are designed to mount to a ceiling, but some can also be wall-mounted when ceiling attachment isn’t feasible. In this case, smoke detectors should be within a few inches of the ceiling - the closer the better. Proper smoke detector placement can ensure early detection of smoke and provide ample time to evacuate.

Smoke Detector Types

Ionization smoke detectors use electrically-charged particles to detect smoke in the air and are more responsive to flaming fires (such as a tipped candle igniting a curtain). Photoelectric smoke detectors use a light beam to detect smoke and are better at detecting smoldering fires (such as a cigarette).n accidental fire. Don’t know where to start?
