Great price but, don't forget that the different types of smoke detectors are optimally placed in different places for early warnings of fire. Also, it is best if they are linked.

or if you need lots 5022391064992 so 6 alarms for £17.96

dont forget your local fire station will come and install your smoke alarms for free to save you money- they did mine, one on each floor xx

As above - contact local fire brigade and get quality 10 year detectors fitted free.

Don't scrimp on smoke alarms and get one for every room and corridor of the house, bar the kitchen and bathroom.
Should you be unlucky enough to have a fire in your property you want the earliest warning possible, and £30 should put an alarm in every room.

You never want to be saying " If only i'd ....."

You can't sniff at a deal like this

For anyone who hasnt yet had this - the fire brigade also check the whole house for possible fire hazards and give you a detailed information sheet at the end of their visit on things you should change.

Fire brigade do it for free.. No heat here!

Voted HOT cos my house is on fire. If you haven't got at least 2 fire alarms in your house you are stupid and better get these now or follow the advice from veja-du

I hate my smoke alarm. It's gone off 3 times in the middle of the night - when I was at home alone.

Smoking hot.

I'll get my coat.

Ring youre local fire station they usually do a free assessment and supply and fit smoke alarms for free i got three fire angels fitted for free and bought the carbon detector..

All the Fire angel 10 year alarms I have had have failed long before the 10 years, even though the red led on them is happily blinking away every 40 seconds. So remember folks - test all alarms regularly - ideally weekly.

Hanif it means ur batteries need changing dont delay change them.

This deal is on fire (_;)

Got mine fitted for free from local fire station too

Its alright getting smoke alarms BUT! you must always maintain them, don't just install them and leave them.......

Always test them once a month via the 'Test Button'
Always change the battery when you hear the beep warning, never just disconnect the battery and leave it till later.
Make sure the vents are dust and spiderweb free.

We have them fitted in every room except bathroom and kitchen............

Same here - got 2 fitted free by the fire brigade.
Also, one of mine died after about 4 or 5 years.

Guys - I may be wrong here, but the "test" button only sounds the alarm to ensure the sounder and the battery is OK. I suppose that is a fairly good, but not complete test, but to properly test it, I was told you should actually strike a match and let it smoke right under it until it goes off. That then checks the actual detector gubbins and the sounder and the battery. Is that right or am I talking tosh (again)?

Oh, hot deal btw, but in a controlled heat kind of way.

(_;)

I chose to fit myself as I can afford to and would rather the fire brigade were free to do it for people who need their help. Anyway, as per my other post, don't forget about the attic. Saved our house last week when we had a fire in attic. We have hard wired throughout the house, but they did not go off as the smoke rises - roof would have been on fire before they went off. As it was, fairly minor fire and insurance paying up no problems because I saved them from a much bigger claim. I've been preaching about it all week and very few people I have spoken to even thought about putting one in the attic.

Nice one shopaholic8 - not considered the attic before but just ordered an extra one to fit up there. Thanks.

I see your point, but the Fire Brigade certainly do not want the general public going around their house lighting matches waiting for there smoke alarms to activate. Matches are deemed as dangerous now-a-days, so are candles................. The test button was designed in accordance with the manufactures warranty etc and is adequate enough to meet all safety standards.

You certainly wouldn't go driving you car into a brick wall once a month just to check your air-bags activate now would you.

Follow the manufacturers manual on testing.

Rather than a match you can get spray

Now THERE'S dedication to HUKD! The man's house is on fire and he still finds time to comment. Better get out of your house while you can.

get hold of your local fire service and get them to do a fire safety check in your home and have two put in for free

and if your lucky you get two hunky firemen in unifom who fit them for you, it got my neighbours twitching with the large fire engine outside my house for at least half an hour. They fitted one upstairs and one down, complete with 10 year non replaceable batteries all for free!!!

You mean
We need to buy the smoke detector first and ask them to install it (for free)
OR
They will supply smoke detector for free and then install it for free ...

I have tried to order 3Nos. It is still shown £15.00 How could I get it for £10 ??

They supply and fit it for free

Yes and while I'm at it I'll buy an armoured bubble inside which I can conduct all my daily activities. After all, I never want to be saying 'if only I'd...'

You have to draw the line somewhere.

Better to have something than nothing... spreading the safety message.
Paid or free from firemen... doesn't matter, it's having them in your home - with batteries fitted and checked often.

firemen!

nice deal

I would be ashamed to waste the fire services time by asking them to come out and fit smoke alarms in my home just becuase I wanted to be a cheap skate.

Fair enough if you can't afford them or are an OAP,but otherwise it just seems wrong.

Voted hot

I love how appropriately positioned the hot deal flame icon is on the front page for this offer

I think this is a scorching deal - have some heat!

Not bad, but im more of a fan of the 10 year smoke alarms that don't give false alarms when you burn toast. (I have 3 in my house)

Also get a couple of carbon monoxide alarms while your at it.
You can see/smell smoke - you cant see or smell carbon monoxide.

Aren't they free from the firestation?
