The Solution?

The Smoke Detector for Heat Tapes and Portable Heaters plugs into an electrical outlet for easy use in the home where the portable heater is used or in the attic or crawl space where the heat tape is located. The smoke detector has an outlet on it, in which the heat tape or heater is to be plugged. The presence of smoke sets off the alarm and turns off the power to the heat tape or portable heater. The smoke detector can be equipped with GFCI, ARC, and current limiting for further protection.
