  • ProSeries Wireless Heat Detector Custom-fit fire safety and protection. In some areas of your home, a heat detector may be a better option than a smoke detector.  Rooms or spaces that have a tendency to get very dusty are often better suited for heat detectors than smoke detectors. This can include garages and attics where substantial dust and fine particles could potentially cause a smoke detector to activate and cause a false alarm. However, heat detectors will not experience this issue. For that reason, heat detectors are often used in these areas. Heat detectors are also frequently used in locations where certain activities may cause a smoke detector to activate. For example, regular cooking activity in the kitchen could produce fumes that may cause a smoke detector to activate. With that in mind, heat detectors are typically used instead of smoke detectors in kitchens. Heat detectors are also commonly used in rooms where smoking is a regular activity.  Also consider installing a heat detector in high-ceiling areas where smoke may not trigger smoke alarms.
