My house is currently equipped with 120 VAC interconnected smokes. I am aware that I cannot incorporate them into my DSC panel because they will not work during AC outage.
I plan to replace them.
A smoke detector is currenly adjacent to the kitchen, about 5 feet from a wall oven. There is a 10 foot cieling, and there are frequent falses. The smoke alarm is equipped with a hush button so there is no problem.
Question: is there a LV smoke available with a hush button?
would a Heat detector be more appropriate? What is the likelihood of falses caused by cooking with a heat detector?
Also, I plan to install a heat detector in the basement near the gas HW heater and boiler. Can the kitchen HD and basement be on the same zone, or should they be separate?
I understand from other posts that HD and Smokes should be on different zones. Is this accurate?
Thanks for your help.
