What is the difference between smoke alarm and smoke detector?


“Mr. Cowdell and his staff assisted me with a problem I had. I called my previous Insurance agent (Name withheld) 2 1/2 weeks before my policy was up to re-shop because the insurer raised rates 23%. They said they would but no return call. I called Cowdell Insurance, and the staff went to work even though it was a Holiday weekend. Mr. Kim Cowdell spent over 4 hours on that holiday Saturday and resolved everything saving me $400.00 and a better policy. That is quality service. Thank You Cowdell Insurance.” —Paul B.

Smoke alarms are self-contained, single or multiple-station smoke-sensing devices typically found in homes. Smoke detectors are smoke-sensing devices that are not self-contained. They operate as an interconnected system and are sometimes monitored remotely.
