The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector

In 2015, there were 365,000 reported fires in the United States. These fires resulted in 2,650 deaths and nearly $7B worth of direct property damage. It’s imperative that every home is equipped with a smoke detector that will alert families inside of the home of a fire. But what happens if you're not home when a fire breaks out?

About the ADT Heat Sensing Smoke Detector


Pairing this Heat Sensing Smoke Detector with ADT monitoring services is a great way to help protect your home from the risk of fires. The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector detects smoke through the ionization of the air surrounding the detector. Any changes in the air quality will trigger a smoke alarm. The same smoke alarm will be triggered when heat is sensed.

Key features of the ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector include:

  • Automatic drift compensation
  • Built-in, dual-sensor heat detector with fixed heat and rate of rise detection
  • Built-in 85dB smoke alarm
  • Local test button
  • Low profile design
  • High/Low sensitivity reporting
  • Low battery indication
  • Easy-maintenance removable smoke chamber
  • Long-life lithium batteries included
  • Reliable 433 MHz and 868 MHz communication technology

The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector comes equipped with dual heat detector sensors. These sensors are a fixed temperature and rate-of-rise sensors. All heat detectors are classified into these two categories. Fixed temperature heat detectors contain a detective alloy that changes from a solid to a liquid when it reaches a specific temperature. Once the heat detects an overall temperature of 177 degrees, the alloy will change to liquid, triggering the smoke alarm. Rate-of-rise heat detectors measure temperature fluctuations between 12-15 degrees per minute. These detectors contain two heat-sensitive resistors within them; one monitoring the ambient temperature of the room and the other heat from the convection of a fire. Once the second resistor measures a temperature increase vs. the other, the smoke alarm is triggered. These two monitoring functions provide protection for your home while you’re away

Frequently Used Together


How Does a Smoke Detector Work?

A smoke detector is device detects smoke and is used to indicate the presence of fire. When the presence of smoke is detected, the detector alerts the household by emitting a loud audible smoke alarm built into the detector. A smoke detector is a vital piece of equipment for every home.

Smoke detectors have been a staple in homes and commercial properties since their inception in 1890. The National Fire Protection Association reported that nearly 3 of 5 fire related deaths inside the home are the result of the home not having a working smoke detector.

Smoke is detected two possible ways within a detector, photoelectric (optically) or ionization (physically). Smoke detectors that detect smoke physically rely on ionization to monitor the air. Ionized smoke detectors rely on a radioisotope to ionize the air. When the sensor monitoring the ionized air inside the detector senses a change in air quality, the smoke alarm is triggered. This type of detector is the most common and is more sensitive than optical detectors.

Photoelectric or optical smoke detectors measure the air density with infrared or ultraviolet light. These detectors contain a source of infrared light, a lens and a photodiode. Photoelectric detectors are typically placed inside a large chamber of air, where smoke would collect from a fire. An infrared or ultraviolet light is beamed either to a reflector that bounces the light back to the detector or to a receiver that processes the density of the air. The intensity of the light will be reduced by the smoke due to absorption, which triggers the smoke alarm to sound. These detectors are found more frequently in commercial settings.


Smoke Detectors

  • The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector Monitors air quality through ionization, rate-of-rise heat detection and fixed temperature heat detection
  • Upon rapid temperature changes or air quality changes the smoke alarm is triggered.
  • The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector communicates with your ADT control panel, alerting an ADT monitoring center
  • The monitoring center dispatched emergency services

Why choose The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector

The best choice for home protection is an obvious choice with The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector. This isn’t your average smoke detector. The ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector provides protection while your home or on the go. As a result, you get a comprehensive protection for your biggest asset.

While you are home, the ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector monitors the air in and around your detector. The device is monitoring ionized air within the detector for the presence of more dense smoke. If that dense air is detected, a smoke alarm will sound and the detector will communicate an alarm to your ADT monitoring system. That system will then alert a monitoring center to dispatch emergency services. Your only worry is getting your family out of the house safe and sound.

When you’re away from your home, the ADT-Monitored Heat Sensing Smoke Detector monitors your home using the dual heat sensing capabilities in rate-of-rise and fixed temperature sensing. If a spike in temperature is detected, a smoke alarm will be triggered and it will also be communicated to your ADT security system. In turn, you will be notified and emergency services will be dispatched to your home. This early detection can prevent massive fire damage occurring at your home.
