If you want to buy a smoke detector, you should make sure that it is certified according to DIN EN 14604 and that the alarm signal is triggered at a volume of at least 85 decibels. The Livy smoke detector is certified throughout Europe and, with a 10-year battery, offers the longest runtime approved for a smoke detector.
Here are the advantages of the Livy Smoke Detector at a glance:

How the photoelectric smoke detector from Livy works
Photoelectric smoke detectors work according to the scattered light method. To do this, they emit an infrared light beam that remains invisible to the human eye and therefore does not cause any disturbance. In addition, a sensor is built into the smoke detector which reacts to this infrared light.
If there is any smoke, the infrared light will scatter in the air due to the smoke particles and thus will hit the sensor: the fire detector then detects the danger and will trigger a loud acoustic signal. This early warning can save lives.
The advantage of a photoelectric smoke detector is that it reacts reliably when smoke is detected but is not inadvertently triggered by cigarette smoke, for example.
