It is important to apply standalone smoke detectors in new and existing residential buildings. They can remind people to evacuate quickly, which can effectively reduce casualties and property losses. Therefore, having a standalone smoke detector is very critical for people’s safety.

The standalone smoke detector has mature technology and low cost, and can be installed and maintained conveniently. It is an effective device for preventing and responding to fires in various residential places.
1.Technical Requirement
Select the standard products strictly. The standalone smoke detector is directly related to life safety, so its specifications must meet the relevant standards in order to reach optimal performance, ensuring people's lives and safety.
Ensure technical performance. In order to make sure reliability, you should choose the optoelectronic standalone smoke detector, and install a combustible gas detector in the kitchen. The standalone smoke detector should be installed near the center of the room ceiling, away from the corners and other places with poor air convection.
For places for disabled people, it is suggestible to install a vibrating reminder next to the bed, and a strobe light or a voice alarm at the door of the bedroom. When there is more than one standalone smoke detector in the house, after one of the detectors is activated, the other detectors should also sound at the same time. In areas where the standalone smoke detectors are relatively concentrated, you should choose the network-type standalone smoke detectors that can simultaneously send fire messages to the auxiliary equipment such as remote displays.
2.Installation Position
The installation position of the standalone smoke detector should be in the public area of the building, such as the ceiling of the evacuation stairs on each floor. And it should also be installed in the bedroom and other resting rooms, living rooms, dining rooms, etc. of residential buildings.
3.Maintenance
Do the proper maintenance. When the standalone smoke detector is powered by batteries, the batteries should be selected according to the product instructions and replaced regularly. The users should check the standalone smoke detector’s function and test it according to the instruction in a regular basis, solving problems such as surface contamination, displacement, interruption of power supply, etc.
For the standalone smoke detectors that often cause false alarms, you should find out the reasons and fix them in time, so as to improve the performance of the smoke detectors, making sure that they can work effectively.
