Fire Angel HT-630 Heat alarm at only £6.06.

It has a 10 year battery and detects heat rather than smoke.

I'm going to add it to my Fire Angel Smoke Alarms that I have installed.

This is over £22 on Amazon and over £17.99 at Screwfix.

Voting HOT does seem a bit ironic on a heat alarm!

There is also a good deal on the SI-601 and the SO-601 Smoke alarms here:

thanks OP £4.88 for me

heat added, is it a throw away after 10 years I presume? "The 10 year sealed for life battery negates the need to regularly change the battery"

Only suitable for locations such as kitchens where smoke detection is not suitable. When used in corridors, landings etc a heat detector may not give early warning of fire and smoke. Smoke is the main killer in domestic fires (renders people unconscious and poisons/soffocates) so select the right kind of detector for the situation.

Surely there's a reason why 99% of alarms detect smoke rather than heat? Heat isn't usually the thing that kills it's the smoke. By the time the heat has got to the alarm you may all be dead from smoke inhalation.

In that case the last thing you need to worry about is you have the wrong smoke alarm, ordered and thanks to op

Surely theres a reason they make these things......Its for the kitchen, garage etc not the whole house.
These dont need high temperatures to trigger, they need a significant rise in temperature and work well with fast burning flash fires.
A great first alert in the room you normally wouldnt have an alarm at all.

Hot from me and I might have been tempted, but kitchen does not have a door on it and the nearest smoke alarm is just outside in the hallway anyway.

Wonder if this would let you know if you forget to turn off the oven/rings on the cooker?

No it wouldnt.

It detects the rate of rise from base temperature.
Heaters or hobs etc wouldnt trigger as gradual increase in temp.

This is looking for a sharp increase as would be seen in a fire.

Code is not working for me, strange

You should not have to buy these if you have none or are missing any.

Ring your local fire services who will come out and fit them for free.

These will not last 10 years, the Fire Brigade fitted 3 Fire Angel ST-620 smoke detectors in my house, they had "10 Year Non-Replaceable Batteries" yet they all failed within 2 years, one didn't even last 12 months. Pay a bit more and buy a decent make instead.

My neighbour had smoke alarms installed by fire brigade.
Full squad arrived in an appliance fully suited up.
Squad sat in engine while 2 went into house for 15 mins to fit alarms.

They obviously had them doing it between shouts.
Id rather not waste the guys time to fit a cheap item even a child could fit.
Maybe thats just me.

And I dont think they install heat alarms in our area, just plain old smoke alarms with none in kitchen.

I bought 4 from screwfix, 2 were DOA straight out the box, seemed to be a particular model they were getting high returns on.
Took them all back and got the replaceable battery version, fair enough i need to replace them every 18 months but seem more reliable.

Yes that's the point, my mother in law had the fire brigade fit some and they were smoke alarms not heat alarms. There must be a reason why they use smoke and not heat.
What if an electrical appliance slowly heated up and caught fire but not a blazing inferno just enough to fill the room with toxic smoke. Would the heat alarm go off? Pretty sure the smoke alarm would have done.

Your not getting this are you....

Optical/ionising smoke alarms for halls, bedrooms and living areas.

Heat alarms for anywhere a smoke alarm is not suitable like a kitchen or areas with dust or high humidity.

This is for use AS WELL as smoke alarms.

Look at any building with a professional fire alarm system, it will have optical smoke heads throughout and only heat detector heads in areas like kitchen or where there is the possibility of false trips.

If you have no detector in your kitchen this gives extra protection.

That's why I stated I'm going to add one to my set of 3 alarms I have in the house!
I have smoke alarms in the kitchen, hall and landing.
This HEAT alarm is another item in "the armoury" and does a different job.

​Ok that's a shame as was hoping it may work if you left cooker on for several hours after forgetting to turn it off.

The Google Nest Protect one's are really good, they have 4 different types of sensors but it tailors them according to where they are installed. They also work alongside a nest thermostat as the occupancy sensor inside tells the thermostat if anyone's home.
They even alert you when away from the home via smartphone.

Get a smart meter or clip on energy monitor. Most display a green, orange or red led depending on whats on.

Ours is really eye catching and if its not green it gets your mind going what might be on.

annoyingly just bought one at screwfix and thought a good price vs amazon !!

cant see it in stock anywhere though... if I can get one delivered ill order again and return the screwfix one...

Went to collect mine today.
They have the order but no stock + hundreds of other orders waiting for stock

Mine turned up today, well pleased.
Thanks again OP
