What is a Heat Detector?

Heat Detectors
Early Warning for a Dangerous Environment!

A heat detector is a type of fire alarm device that detects heat or a significant rise in temperature in a specific area and to triggers an alarm system when a predetermined temperature or temperature rise is reached. Heat detectors can save lives by detecting high temperatures or fire in a building and alerting occupants to evacuate before it's too late. This early warning can give people more time to escape from the building and prevent injuries or fatalities. Heat detectors are an important part of any fire safety system, along with smoke detectors and sprinklers.

Typically, heat detectors are used in commercial and industrial properties such as factories, warehouses, manufacturing plants, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, museums, and other similar facilities. They are also used in residential properties such as homes, apartment complexes, and senior living facilities. In the event of a heat alarm, the GeoArm central monitoring station will perform appropriate action.

There are two main types of heat detectors:

1. Rate-of-Rise Heat Detectors, which detect an increase in temperature at a rapid rate.

2. Fixed Temperature Heat Detectors, which trigger an alarm when a predetermined temperature is reached. Heat detectors are often used in areas where smoke detectors may not work well, such as in dusty or humid environments, or where smoke may not be present in the early stages of a fire.

The main difference between a wired heat detectors and a wireless heat detectors is that a wired heat detector is directly connected to a building's electrical wiring system, while a wireless heat detector uses radio signals to communicate with the control panel or other devices in a fire alarm system. The main advantage of a wired heat detector is reliability, as it isn't subject to interference or signal range issues. A wireless heat detector can be easier to DIY install, as it doesn't require any physical wiring.
