Good price, but I think a silence button on a Fire Alarm is a stupid idea. Even if it is only for 10 minutes.

Waiting for those that say 'its free if you get it done by the fire service' - which we did, and it took 3 months!

Its free if you get it done by the fire service

Also, fire service alarms have 10 year batterys

If you ring your nearest fire station direct rather than the 0800 number it will get done a lot quicker!
Should be there the same day.....

hush button in case of false alarms (such as cooking fumes setting the alarm off). The hush button will silence the alarm for 10 minutes before resetting to allow any fumes to clear


Rather have a silence button than sit through the siren because of false alarms , a good idea , not daft at all .

A silence button is a great idea - my stepdad beat our last one down with a broom handle!
Besides, I'd not want to ring the fire brigade up to get them to come to my house and fit one - it's a waste of their time when we can do it ourselves!

this must be cheap

Getting fire brigade out to fit one of these is a terrible waste of resources.

3 months is pretty good! Over a year now and still nothing for me.....I did chase them up once then gave up and fitted my own. I'd rather they were doing more important work then fitting my fire alarm anyway but would have appreciated being told they were not coming.

It all depends on the area you live in, 5 miles down the road where I used to live (and is run by a different county council) we got ours fitted straight away, also the police always turned up when we called, unlike here where they never do.

Just feel it is worth warning people that despite this great service the fire brigade offer it doesn't always happen and you could be left weeks, months and even years without a fire alarm if you rely on them coming.

They do a bit more than that AFAIK they look around your house and check for potential fire risks (they REALLY dont like to see 4 gang extensions plugged into 3 way adaptors!!), they can highlight stuff that you probably didnt think about such as escape routes etc.

10 year alarms have lithium batteries which have no self-discharge characteristics so they are fine. Anyway they bleep when the battery voltage drops below a certain threshold and warn you to replace battery - same as any smoke alarm.
