This International Standard specifies requirements, test methods, performance criteria, and manufacturer's instructions for smoke alarms that operate using scattered light, transmitted light, or ionization, and are intended for household or similar residential applications.
For the testing of other types of smoke alarms, or smoke alarms working on different principles, this International Standard should be used only for guidance. Smoke alarms with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this International Standard.
This International Standard allows, although it does not require, the inclusion within the smoke alarm of facilities for the following:
- visual alarm condition indication;
- visual fault condition indication;
- extended temperature-range operation;
- interconnection with other similar smoke alarms or accessories;
- alarm-silencing facility.
Where such facilities are included, this International Standard specifies applicable requirements.
This International Standard does not cover devices intended for incorporation in systems using separate control and indicating equipment. Such systems are specified in all parts of ISO 7240.
