How does a heat detector work?

Equipment | General | Sensors

A monitored heat detector works by identifying abnormal temperature spikes in a short period of time within range of the device. 

Heat detectors work best in areas of the home where you wouldn’t want to install a smoke detector, like your garage, a utility room, or near the fireplace. If a Guardian monitored heat detector is activated, a signal will be sent to our monitoring team.
