Use the right equipment
Most of the home owners are using fire protection along with wireless security system in the house but they don’t know about the type and quality of the system that they are using.
There are basically two types of smoke detectors including Photoelectric and Ionization smoke detectors. Ionization works when it identifies the smoke from an original flame only. Whereas, photoelectric detector that sometimes comes with a standard wireless security system can detect smoke from smoldering sources like a cigarette falls on a carpet and it causes smoke. Photoelectric smoke detector is little bit costly but it is as much necessary as the Ionization smoke detectors. Both systems are required in each house to keep up the protection against fire.

If you are living in a large house, you can use a wireless security system through which a person can alert everyone in the house in case of any emergency. You can also opt for an automatic fire protection system as mentioned above.
