Heat detectors

Heat detectors are typically used in areas where smoking is permitted or in other situations where a smoke detector could be inadvertently actuated by processes taking place in the building. For example, in kitchens there may be regular emissions of smoke.

It also identifies fire in its more advanced stage,so that the response time is longer than smoke detectors.
