The DSC FSA-210BT 2-Wire Photoelectric Smoke & Heat Detector with Tamper is used for monitoring for fires in a home or a business. The device includes a photoelectric smoke detector that will reliably respond to the presence of smoke in the room, as well as a fixed temperature heat sensor.

Monitoring a building for a fire is crucial, and the FSA-210BT provides an ideal solution. The device features drift compensation, which allows it to maintain sensitivity at all times, even when dust has accumulated. Once the dust level reaches the compensation limit, a trouble condition will occur on the panel. This will prevent false alarms from occurring, and it will allow the device to maintain sensitivity.

The device's easy-to-remove smoke chamber makes cleaning the device and providing maintenance a breeze. The dual sensor heat detector on the FSA-210BT operates based on fixed temperature, and it will respond upon detecting a temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. The detector also features a test button that allows for easy device testing. The device includes a mounting bracket for easy installation by an end user.

Great 2-Wire Smoke & Heat Sensor!
Submitted on 08/10/2020 Alarm Grid

The DSC FSA-210BT is a 2-wire smoke and heat detector for use with wired alarm systems that support 2-wire smoke detectors from DSC. It can also be used with certain wired to wireless converter modules that support 2-wire smoke detectors, including the Qolsys IQ Hardwire 16-F and the DSC PG9WLSHW8 PowerG Wired to Wireless Converter. The device is quite versatile, and it offers some great features to help it stand-out when compared with similar devices. However, the product has been discontinued, and you are unlikely to find a new model anywhere. But if you come across a used model, then it should still work fine, provided that it has not been damaged. Overall, we really like the DSC FSA-210BT, and we give it a 5 Star rating.

There are many positive aspects regarding the DSC FSA-210BT. For one, it packs both smoke and heat detection into one device. This means that it will be more likely to quickly respond to a fire. The DSC FSA-210BT utilizes drift compensation, and that helps it maintain sensitivity even if dust has started to build-up. It also features a removable smoke chamber, which makes cleaning the device easy. There is also a convenient test button on the sensor. And a mounting bracket is included for easy installation. We also like the fact that the smoke detector is photoelectric. We find photoelectric smoke detectors to be the most reliable. The fixed-temperature heat detector (135 degrees Fahrenheit) also works very reliably. The device has a tamper cover to alert the system if someone tries to open it up.

There are not many downsides regarding the DSC FSA-210BT. There may be compatibility concerns if you try to use the sensor with a non-DSC System. And like any 2-wire smoke detector, the device will need to be installed. This will require running wires. But really, we don't have many negative things to say about the DSC FSA-210BT. It gets a 5 Star rating from Alarm Grid.

Good: Both Smoke & Heat, Drift Compensation, Removable Smoke Chamber, Mounting Bracket Included, Photoelectric Smoke Detector, Fixed-Temp Heat Sensor, Tamper Cover

Bad: May Not Work w/ Non-DSC Systems, Must Be Installed
