Photoelectric alarms – it senses the lack of light and triggers the sound. Inside the detector, there is a light and sensor positioned at 90 degrees angles. SO when smoke enters the space where is detector situated, smoke particles scatter the light and some amount of light hits the sensor it sets off the horn.
