Really good quality stuff. If you are a lazy fecker, let the fire service waste their time fitting them for free. Your choice!

3 year warranty? doesn't make me feel safe @ 4 years+

The models in the picture don't have escape lights on them.

I know Kid's shouldn't smoke , but not everyone has twins and it's not very subtle is it ?

Don't forget if you rent your house your landlord has a legal responsibility to install fire alarms on each floor from the 1st of October this year!

And carbon monoxide detectors.

As previously pointed out, local fire service will fit these for free and the ones they fit come with 10 year batteries. Don't feel bad about asking for these, it's part of the 2004 fire service act, fire services will carry out preventative measures to reduce the risk of fires.

And carbon monoxide detectors.



via the RLA
Carbon monoxide alarms

Likewise, during any period beginning on or after 1st October 2015 when the premises are occupied under a tenancy or a licence a carbon monoxide alarm must be provided by the landlord in any room in premises which is used wholly or partly as living accommodation which contains a solid fuel burning combustion appliance. This applies to any kind of wood burning stove or an open coal fire. It will also extend to equipment such as a solid fuel Aga in the kitchen. This is already a requirement with new installations of solid fuel burning combustion appliances as under Building Regulations there is a requirement to install a carbon monoxide alarm. This is now extended to any existing appliances already in place before Building Regulations imposed this requirement or where building regulations are not observed.

I'm kinda assuming the science behind why some, &/or may not prefer a Fireman to do it/that for free has stuffs pertaining it that has a little more to it then the fact that one is lazy? (I'd suspect anyway?).

That's the way I see it anyway ......

​As a landlord, why am I finding this out here! Fortunately this is already in place and agree it is important, but they only passed the law on the 18th and enforce it with £5k fines at the end of the month.

The ones my local fire service fitted were rubbish, constantly going off every time I had a shower and sounding like they were radioactive! I replaced them with ones from screwfix and had no problems since.

​Yep me too. I only found out by accident because I had an inventory done. And not just on each floor. Each individual flat too!

I bought these last time aldi had them, one kept going off at night with no apparent trigger and wouldn't silence, the other triggered in the hallway every time the shower was used. I think we got a rogue batch, I took them back for a refund and got some fire angels instead. A good deal if you get ones which aren't faulty but totally lost confidence and personally, I wouldn't want to rely on these after my experience to potentially save my family in the event of a fire.

It could be a manufacturer fault.

​ionisation smoke alarms shouldn't be used anywhere near the bathroom or kitchen, they false alarm due to steam and cooling fumes. Optical (photoelectric) smoke alarms are always more reliable. There is a reason ionisation alarms are cheaper.

Are these battery operated or do they need to be connected to the mains?

​What does radioactivity sound like?

Not sure why these are in the fashion section?
