A fire has started in this way and then you naturally want to be able to react to it correctly. A smoke detector is the perfect solution for this. When a smoke detector detects smoke, it sounds the alarm. This way you are warned in time and you have the opportunity to prevent worse damage. Try to avoid negligence and take a look at our large collection of Alecto smoke detectors. In areas where there is a lot of smoke / vapor, such as a bathroom or garage, you could also choose to hang a heat detector. Heat detectors go off if there is a large increase in temperature within a short period of time.

Connectable Smoke detectors
At Alecto we have a selection of connectable smoke detectors. This means that all smoke detectors are connected to each other. As a result, all linked smoke detectors will sound an alarm when only one of them has detected smoke or fire. Extremely useful when you have a large building/house where you want to have everyone alerted quickly.
Hang with magnet
A mounting kit is included with all our models. However, if you do not want holes in your wall/ceiling, we recommend a magnetic mounting set. This keeps your piece intact and works just as well as traditional fastening. For a solid magnetic mounting kit, look at the MK-2 from Alecto.

Smoke detectors required
In the Netherlands, the smoke detector has been mandatory in new homes since 2003 and since 2022 this requirement also applies to existing homes. This means that all homes in the Netherlands must be equipped with at least one smoke detector on the escape route of each floor. The smoke detector should be placed in a place where smoke is first detected, for example in the hallway or on the landing.
The obligation has been introduced to increase safety in homes and to reduce the number of victims in house fires. A smoke detector can save lives by warning early and giving people the chance to flee. It is therefore important to comply with the smoke detector obligation and to provide a safe living environment for you and your family.
What is the difference between a smoke detector and a heat detector?
A smoke detector detects smoke particles in the air and sounds an alarm when these particles reach a certain concentration. This is especially useful in situations where a lot of smoke is produced during a fire, such as a smoldering fire or a fire in an enclosed space.
A heat detector, on the other hand, detects an increase in temperature in the environment. This makes heat detectors reliable in situations where there is little or no smoke, for example during fires in kitchens or garages. Heat detectors are less sensitive to false alarms caused by cooking fumes or steam and are therefore suitable for areas where these often occur.
