Heat detector

A battery powered sensor that alerts when temperatures reach more than 58ºC

Heat detector


Early fire detection can mean the difference between a small, manageable fire incident and a catastrophic fire emergency where assets, property and even lives may be lost.

The heat detector is installed in the kitchen, and will raise an alarm to the monitoring centre if it detects a sudden rise in temperature; which could indicate that a pan has boiled dry, or a chip pan is overheating. As this device detects a raise in temperature, it will raise an alarm before a smoke detector, which raises an alarm when it detects smoke.

in specific areas of a property such as the kitchen, it may be not be appropriate for a smoke detector to be installed due to the likelihood of false activations. Installing a dedicated heat detector can solve this problem whilst retaining a high level of protection for the resident.

Should a fire occur causing a rapid temperature increase, the unit will raise an alert once the temperature has reached 58ºC, providing an opportunity for the monitoring centre or carer to assess the risk before alerting the emergency services.

Recommended Position - Heat Detector performs best when installed on ceiling in centre of room. If this is not possible, ensure sensor is placed at least 50 cm from wall. Ideal for kitchens, boiler rooms, lofts and areas where there are normally high levels of fumes, smoke or dust.

The heat detector is a wireless, indoor sensor which gives early warning of potential fire in the home and raises an alarm to alert help.

Who is it for?

It is suitable for anyone living independently who is potentially at risk of fire within their home.

How does it work?

The heat detector is easily fitted onto the ceiling and raises an alarm if the temperature rises to 58°C. When activated, the heat detector sounds an audible alarm to notify the person in the property. At the same time, an alert is sent via the Progress Lifeline base unit telecare system, to our 24/7 Control Centre to ensure the most appropriate and immediate action is taken.
