The advantage over standard smoke detectors is that no one has to be present to notify the fire department in case of a fire. Whether present or not, the few minutes gained by an automated system notifying the fire department as soon as a fire begins can mean the difference between having minimal smoke and fire damage or a total loss of property and contents!
