There are two types of smoke detector in general use for home smoke alarms: ionization and photoelectronic. These two types of smoke detectors sense the presence of smoke differently. Ionization smoke alarms are quicker to respond to fast-burning fires. But photoelectric smoke alarms, on the other hand, are quicker to react to smoldering fires. We cannot say that one type is better than another because every fire is different. BeeSecure Smoke Detector is certified according to the European standard EN14604: 2005.
