Just seen these in my local Tesco store (Weston-super-mare)

Working wirelessly they will alert you in your bedroom that an incident has occurred where the detector is.

On removig the unit from the base, it becomes a torch, so you can see to get downstairs (in worst case scenario)

Thought they were a bargain at £25, and was happy to see their retail price when i got home !


Description

Is this really that much better than a standard £5 alarm? If a co2/fire alarm goes off in my house I don't need anything else to let me know.
#2
I'd agree with you, but there are other situations where it has benefits.

My Gran keeps falling asleep in the living room when she is cooking, and doesn't hear the smoke alarm, so having it by her should help. !!

Also, if you were upstairs, and a fire did break out, to have a ready charged torch in the room would be beneficial i reckon.
:thumbsup:

not sure on the benefits of the wireless guff etc., but we recently had a visit from the fire brigade (nothing serious) and i was chatting to the chief about our alarms, and he said that they recommend and fit, Fire Angel alarms. But he did say that they were the sort that have a 10 year (ish) battery in, and are about £15.

They won't fit detectors as advanced as these, but in many parts of the UK if you phone your local fire station (not using 999) many of them run schemes where they will come out and fit smoke alarms for free as part of a home assessment.

I'm sure many of you know this already, but it might help someone...

Hot, but to me its a bit of a niche item.

It absolutely has its benefits - elderly people (as mentioned above) being one of them.

For most of the populace, a standard alarm will do the job just fine.

voted hot, but certainly not for everyone.

Anything that detects is good enough providing it is in working order.

I spent many years as a retained firefighter and the thing that used to upset me the most was wat we called a "Friday night p1ssed up - fry up" The sort of situation where someone gets home bombed, decides they are hungry, put the chip pan or frying pan on and fall asleep on the sofa and never wakes.

I cannot remember the number of these I have been to where there was a smoke detector on the ceiling with the flap hanging open and the battery missing and we ended up carrying out a body.

I cannot repeat this often enough.

Please check your smoke detector(s) once a month. Do not test it by pushing the button - the fire never sets it off this way. Use a candle or a match and blow it out under the detector. That way you test that the smoke head is not choked with dust. Once a year change the battery unless it is one that has a 5 or 10 year battery. If it is a mains detector it may still have a backup battery - check it. Finally once a year, open the detector and use the pipe on your hoover to suck out all the dust. This will maintain the efficiency of the detector. Always test it after changing the battery or cleaning it.

Sorry to get on my soapbox but every firefighter I know hates to see the pointless waste of life caused by a lack of proper smoke detection equipment. If you do not have a battery in your smoke detector get in your car and go and buy one NOW. There must be a 24 hour shop within 10 miles of you so there is no excuse for not doing it.

*steps down of soapbox*

Hot deal for those it is relevant to.

Thank u for posting and giving some valuable advice. I do check my smoke and carbon monoxide alarms each month but have never realised you should test the smoke alarms as you have explained. I will go and do it now and will also get the hoover to them!
:thumbsup:Thank you again

Advanced product but advanced price - features not normally needed

none in solihull store. Possibly a store-specific deal

Thanks for the kind words guys. If my advice just made one person think a little harder and check their smoke detector it was worth the effort.

For those that have not yet checked theirs.

Nag...

NAG!

Just Do it!;-)

I dont know why people are complaining about the price, this is a smoke detector AND co alarm, the CO alarm would set you back this much on its own, if it's the one in the pic it's the same as I have, and cost £30 two years ago.

You would have though that something like a free smoke detector would mean we all had one. I can remember that we even had a policy of carrying spare batteries for smoke detectors on the pumps so that when we went into an area we would sometimes check peoples smoke detectors and change, or fit, batteries for them for free, even though they had had the alarm free the year before.

Seems you cannot help some people!:roll:
