Ionisation Smoke Alarms ionise the air between a positive and negative electrode creating a small current. If smoke particles are present they will change the balance in this current as a result of which a signal is sent to the circuit to sound the alarm. These alarms are suitable for dustier areas but they should not be placed near the kitchen as too many false alarms will be triggered.
