There are now quality wireless solutions available which may be used for a variety of purposes. Some of the conditions which can be resolved with these wireless smoke alarm detectors are as follows:
One can bring smoke alarm detector device placement into code compliance without having to run new electrical wiring to new devices.
One can, when necessary, abandon troublesome or erratic electrical wiring to existing smoke alarm detector devices if the wiring is generating nuisance alarming or chirping, and instead install interconnected wireless smoke alarm detectors.
It is possible to add new devices for someone who may be hearing impaired without running new electrical wiring.
There are sounding devices available that can be used in the bedroom of someone who is hearing impaired. These sounders work in conjuction with wireless smoke alarm detectors and will become audible when the smoke alarm detectors in the residence are sounding.
Additional audibility provided by adding wireless smoke alarm detectors becomes important in large homes where audibility from one end of the house to the other is a chief concern.
Houses that have been extensively remodeled can often end up with smoke alarm detectors that are not interconnected. Wireless smoke alarm detectors, which are
interconnected, may be installed without the addition of electrical wiring.
