Standalone wirelessly connected and wired smoke detectors are often dependent on very low power. In a residential home, short battery life is simply a nuisance. In a commercial building, high power means higher costs and more maintenance. Texas Instruments solutions offer our customers a few ways to mitigate this issue. For instance, an ultra-low power method to duty-cycle sensor end nodes described in our the Humidity and Temperature Sensor Node enabling 10+ Year Battery Life reference design , could be used to enable designs that provide several years of care free operation.

With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) smoke detectors are becoming smarter and more innovative. TI solutions offer several ways to achieve wireless connectivity via mesh and star networks. TI also shows ways to design in advanced features while reducing system size and cost.
