Photoelectric vs. Ionization. Since the subject was brought up... Ionization detectors work by sampling air, Photoelectric detectors work by the substance entering the detector blocking a photoelectric light reaching a photocell. Ionization are considered more sensative and are more likely disabled due to cooking rendering the detector unopritive forlonger periods of time. Bottom line- Smoke detectors save lives!
