Device for detecting smoke and/or fire.

Smoke detectors will typically sound an audible alarm when they detect smoke or fire via an ionization or photoelectric sensor. They may be powered directly by the home wiring, but they should all include a battery. Some detectors will also detect carbon monoxide, may be connected to the home alarm system, and may be connected to other smoke detectors in the home.
