Smoke detectors and fire alarms are not the same, though they do work together.
A smoke detector will sense smoke and sound an alarm in the area where there is smoke. They are responsible for picking up smoke, but not necessarily heat or carbon monoxide.
A fire alarm is responsible for raising a wider alarm and prompting the whole building to take action. It is usually triggered by a smoke detector, or can be triggered manually, and will sound an alarm in the entire premises.
Both smoke detectors and fire alarms must be installed correctly and tested regularly to ensure your business is protected.
