Fire detection systems

From: Arturs Lapins <artvrs<-at->

According to fire regulations, every room in a historic building has
to be equipped with fire detection unit. The most standard approach
is to install an ionization detector, which is a rather big, white
plastic "tablet", which cannot be painted. If on white ceilings they
look more or less tolerable; on painted ceilings they do not.

Has anybody heard about ionization detectors which can be painted?
Or are there any detectors (like heat cables), which can be sunk
into the plaster?

A good comparison of systems and Norwegian experience can be found
here:
