A smoke detector is a device that basically senses smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial smoke detectors issue a signal to a fire alarm control panel as part of a fire alarm system.

Since June 2018, smoke detectors have been made mandatory in all new residential homes, including HDB (Housing Development Board) flats.

In general, there are two typical types of smoke detectors.

Types of Smoke Detectors in Singapore:

1. Photoelectric Smoke Detector

Photoelectric smoke detectors are generally more responsive to fires that begin with a long period of smouldering e.g. a burning cigarette, a short-circuited wire.

Photoelectric-type detectors aim a light source into a sensing chamber at an angle away from the sensor. Smoke enters the chamber, reflecting light onto the light sensor; triggering the alarm. This allows it to detect fire earlier than a heat-based detector.

Generally, this smoke detector is installed in spaces such as basements, ordinary floors, corridors, staircases and elevator shafts.

2. Ionisation Smoke Detector

Ionisation smoke detectors are generally more responsive to flaming fires e.g. grease fire in the kitchen, paper burning in a waste basket.

Ionisation-type smoke detectors have a small amount of radioactive material between two electrically charged plates, which ionises the air and causes current to flow between the plates.

When smoke enters the chamber, it disrupts the flow of ions, thus reducing the flow of current and activating the alarm.

Considerations when selecting a smoke detector:

  • Length of Battery Life (determines how frequent battery should be changed)
  • Sensing Range, Sensitivity, and Technology (how many smoke detectors should be deployed)
  • Alarm Volume (would you be able to hear it through reasonable amount of noise/music)
  • Wifi Connectivity (for notifications should a fire break out while you’re away)
  • Ease of Installation
  • Any other useful features?

In this post, we’ve gathered all the relevant details to compile a list of the 10 smoke detectors in Singapore.

A good smoke detector is also one that comes with an in-built carbon monoxide (CO) detector within.

This is because when a fire burns in an enclosed room, the oxygen in the room is gradually used up and replaced by carbon dioxide. Following a build-up of carbon dioxide in the air, the fuel is prevented from burning fully and it starts to release poisonous carbon monoxide.

Go with the E Life Smart Store LED Digital Gas Smoke Alarm Co Carbon Monoxide Detector, which comes with a unique digital LCD screen to display CO levels. It’s able to record peak levels of CO detected over a four-week period.

That’s not all: it also has an in-built room temperature indicator with a range of ±2°C to detect temperature changes in its surroundings.
