Three Reasons to Install a Smoke Detector | Protect Your Loved Ones Today

Chances are you’ve probably read it in the news – Smoke Detectors are now mandatory for new residential building built from June 2018 onwards. If you’re a current homeowner, this new rule only affects you if you undergo home renovations involving fire safety works. An example of this are renovations involving a fire rated door.

In 2017, statistics from Singapore Civil Defence Force shows that residential fires were the largest contributors to fire causes in Singapore. 16.5% of these fires were due to the electrical origin. Also, unattended cooking is one of the top three causes of residential fires.


If you’re considering extra protection for your home, here’s three reasons why you should get a smoke detector.

24/7 Safety 

Having a smoke detector installed in your home is the first step in ensuring round the clock safety and monitoring. Our Pyrexx PX-1 and PX-1C smoke detectors have bi sensors that detect smoke and heat. You’ll hear the 85db alarm from the smoke detector before you see a huge fire.

If you’re sleeping, the loud alarm from the smoke detector will wake you up. As a result of the alarm, this increases the chances of evacuation and calling for help early. Also, the chances of smoke inhalation decreases when you evacuate early.

If you’re not home, the alarm might warn your neighbor of the fire before they see it. This can hopefully minimize damage to your home.
