A primary objective of residential smoke detection is to
increase the time available for evacuation. In a recent
experimental study, only 200 to 300 seconds of available
egress time was provided by a smoke detector located in
the room of origin with a smoldering fire. In come
cases the smoke detector in an adjacent room actuated
after untenable conditions had developed in the room of
