Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Heat detector

is a fire alarm device designed to respond when the convected thermal energy of  fire increases the temperature of a heat sensitive element. The thermal mass and conductivity of the element regulate the rate flow of heat into the element.

smoke detector

these basically sense smoke and give a warning alarm when there may be a possible outbreak of fire

monoxide detector

these are used to detect poisonous gases in the air which are harmful to the human body

all these may be used at residential and work places

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
