they still make a noise when smoke is around just remember to change the batteries yearly
Hmmm how do these compare to a sensor costing 20x the price, no idea? :/
How do these compare to the Nest ones? :/
How long do the batteries last for?
Good deal for two (y)
This may be because there is an offers page wher the Nest along with some other products are discounted so this is the discount offer price. No danger as if they are the old ones you send them back as they are not as described on the web site
And if you search for Nest Protect....... wolseley.co.uk/product/nest-protect-battery-smoke-detector-and-co-alarm/CatalogSearchResultMobileView?storeId=10203&catalogId=12001&resultCatEntryType=2&uid=0.19409567936307337&searchTerm=Nest+protect It shows two vastly different prices for the same thing!??
If you check the website now it only list the one version of the Nest Protect, which is the second generation. Let’s be honest no one would have the first generation after this length of time
There seems to be some confusion on that thread. I believe they are 1st Gen as they are advertising 2nd Gen for £108.99 each. No one seems to want to check.
You can buy 3 for £226 at Wolseley using the 10% off code "welcome".

London, like most brigades nationwide have provided 'home fire safety visits' which include free installation where necessary of smoke alarms. This is a free service that has been provided for over a decade, and continue to do so. You can book an appointment online here https://hfsvwr.london-fire.gov.uk/HFSVRequestGaz.aspx
Tottenham fire station London N17, but then again, now thinking about it, it was before Grenfell tower.....do you think they've changed their stance?
Can I ask which station gave you this incorrect information?
how is it nonsense. I contacted the local fire station and asked for a fire alarm. their response, via email, was they do not provide fire alarms anymore.
Still a few out there - got last one in Havant :D
Just installed in (mains/battery) smoke alarm which specifies to only use Duracell... and they work fine... have tried non-duracells in the past and some do bleep low battery alarm straight away. Only another 20 to do. Great find thanks :)
Who knew that a battery would cause world war 3
Same here, picked a load up at this price. Expiry date June 2026. Once again, thanks OP, great find.
2026. They have a 10 year shelf life Manufactured 2016
Thanks, it was over a month ago I posted this :)
They are £9 now, heat anyway
Fair play to Fire Angel, sent them an email and they are sending replacements FOC.
ALL of our fire angel (supplied by the fire brigade)smoke alarms did NOT work, this is from years ago they would just chirp instead of an alarm, so they are still supplying killer smoke alarms Check yours today
Thanks u got me worried now. I'll have to contact them just to be on the safe side
Just rolled into work and they are here already :o Nice one cpc
In that case I have some wonderful alarms you can buy. Only 20 grand each thanks. Everything has a price. Including safety.
Rubbish. Sorry for being blunt, but I've had a number of CO alarms and they've never gone off, but if they had I would have spent some real time looking for the cause. No where near enough people have CO alarms, and its the invisible killer. Heat for OP. I have a £20 CO alarm, but would buy this pack if I didn't. VERY good to double check you've got enough alarms going into the Xmas period when people will likely have loads of candles and fairy lights increasing risks...... get them checked folks. ;)
The thing with the CO alarm is with a smoke alarm you can see what is causing it (toast) and go deal with the problem. If the CO alarm goes off what are you going to do, go stand outside and call a gas engineer out? No, you are going to debate for five minutes and then silence it and hope the whole thing blows over. So they are effectively a waste of time unless they warn you of imminent, severe CO problems instead of just using a hob or woodburner.
Nice one ,been thinking of ordering new smoke alarms as ours have been up years Especially with Xmas and all the lights up Or in reality ..... if the missus burns the turkey whilst im drunk on the sofa (highfive)
heat from me as ,we have had firemen come give advise and fit firealarms (highfive) they even fitted one above my sons bed as he is deaf (highfive)
Exactly ... As the OP said "Home Fire Risk Assessment". So what's a work based wotnots got to do with anything?, lol.
Must be a rarety then.
If you hadn't already guessed my occupation, we provide home fire safety visits and provide free smoke alarms multiple times on a daily basis. When a home needs a smoke alarm (and sometimes co alarms) we provide and fit them free of charge So now you've heard from a firefighter, Gov.uk website, and various fire service websites. If you had a bad experience with your service during a visit or didn't understand the information they provided then you must get back in touch with them, but going online and saying "they don't provide alarms, no" is totally wrong and misleading and could prevent people from inquiring with potentially terrible consequences
As you're giving people false hope that they will give them out for free. Do it then come back - i bet I'm righ
Yeah have to say the same, more worries on the lack of them in houses myself than that. Though I do worry about sleeping kids not hearing them, which has been proven recently after the awful fire where the father set fire to the house killing his kids. We set ours off and the kids didn’t move, good job we are light sleepers but if anything happened to us, kids would nott hear it.
do you reckon that's true? I'm always setting ours off when I 'burn the toast' or otherwise create a bit of smoke in the kitchen - I do like to singe the outside of my steaks etc :) ours work fine
Saw this on the BBC today but so far only one website has the story it’s not great news but also worryingly only 10% of homes havethem. Considering they are so cheap or even “free” that’s a shocking statistic. www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5071869/amp/Nearly-half-battery-smoke-alarms-fail-activate.html
Non in Bradford
Anyone else founs in other stores?
Release the geese
Does it only save the kids, then? Is it really high pitched, or summat?
Good brand, and good price

One review all the rest are Brookyln Trading have a pair of Fireangel smoke alarms For £9.98 delivered ... https://www.brooklyntrading.co.uk/fireangel-twin-pack-smoke-alarm-ionisation-sensor-no-battery-required Or the optical and ionising pair for £11.98 delivered... https://www.brooklyntrading.co.uk/fireangel-twin-pack-smoke-alarms-optical-ionising-sensors-10-year-life There a dull white though, grey even.
A few negative comments, but it has a test button. And it looks like it's made in the EU so can't be that bad.
When I'm looking to pinch pennies, I always start with essential fire safety equipment. HEAT! Quite literally.
Pah, I can get 1/53rd of a Nest Protect for that.
They should also be interlinked with each other, and the heat detector in the kitchen (and possibly a carbon monoxide detector near the boiler or any solid fuel burning items)
That's merely a gesture from them , if your going to do it do it right , with mains and battery as back up .
In which case I'm clearly wrong. Must be due to build up of dust and general reliability then. Would also explain why they recommend replacement of optical after 10 years. Ionization is more effective with flames but in my house I have a heat detector in the kitchen, not a smoke alarm.
I think the halflife of Americium is 432.2 years from memory I think optical are better in hallways, but ionisation still has its place
The become useless because of the half life of radioactive substances. Go for optical.
I know it's an old post but I've decided to check my posts 8 months down the line 😁, we had 3 fitted must be 5 years now 2 are fine but one on top floor ranomly kept going off from day one fire brigade replaced twice and still it persisted to go off randomly so i removed it
Anyone else still waiting for theirs? I had a confirmation last week but no sign of it still. Hermes tracking just says "order placed"
To be fair to Brooklyn Trading. They responded with an apology and sent replacement items with 2022 dates on. Just make sure you check the replace date on the Ines you receive.
Got my smoke detectors today, they don't even protect them with bubble wrap, damaged packaging and one keeps bleeping to say battery low even though I swapped batteries.The other one intermittant does not bleep when you press the test button.Has 5 years replace by date.
Don't bother with this deal. The alarms I was sent had a "replace by 2017" date on them. So they are effectively useless 10 year old stock. The batteries were dead too. Now pursuing a refund so I can buy some fresh ones with some working life in them!!
its a good price for a combined unit but just remember you need a carbon .onoxide unit in a room with a boiler or fire but smoke detectors should be at different places throughoyt the house so these units are good for joint areas but 5 quid smoke detectors should suffice in the other house zones where no carbon monoxide testing would be required
Good unit, the voice isn't the loudest but the alarms are loud enough.
Just use strong sticky pads
Yeah because the fire service isn't having anything like serious funding reductions now is it!! But hey you carry on being selfish to save a few bob and the rest of us will leave those services for people who don't have any other option and actually really need the help!!! I'm alright jack pull up the ladder !!!

I think that service is best left for older or disabled people who might be housebound or confused/worried about the vast choice of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms available, the visit from the fire service will put their mind at ease that they have the correct alarms installed by professionals. Younger able bodied people shouldn't be using this service to save a few quid imho, if everyone in the uk did this the fire service simply wouldn't be able to cope! Don't be a tight ass and buy your own fire alarms and leave the free fire alarms and safety check for the people who actually need it!!
Thank you just ordered 2 of each type bargain!
How long will the battery last? 6 months?
Do you mean this brand? If so must be good! Heat giving Op
Your local firebrigade will supply and fit these free. Worth it to try and save them call out costs
Thanks. Ordered 3
You own a fire station, wow!
Wouldn't be without one, but someone needs to design a nicer looking fire alarm, rather than just a horrible square chunk of plastic.
No, the fire service come to your house and provide valuable advice after walking around. The free alarm is just a perk and funded. It is open to the rich and poor. It is not about being able to afford one or not. Their advice could be useful.
Also a surprising number of people don't realise that smoke detectors expire. Usually around 10 years. We bought our house in 2015 and when I took one of the detectors off the wall it said it had expired in 2010.
have a look at the hottest deal of the day today, "bankrupt the NHS" the smoke alarm is the same, when they are so cheap buy your own. Tea lights aren't my comment :)
or they just really don't want people to die in the unfortunate event of a fire, next time I'm working at a fire station I'll ask. *edit* don't use tea lights? Why ever not?
this is the link, but probably all gone http://www.morethan.com/home-insurance/news/guide-smoke-alarms-home
Can never be too safe!
They've done the maths and concluded its cheaper for them to provide and fit alarms free...mot me! Your making a number of incorrect "assumptions". None of the on call crews are taken off duty to fit these,nor do the maintenance staff who fit these drive round to fit them in Fire engines We do a lot of work for the T&W Fire Brigade fleet of cars,vans,minibuses etc etc.They have a fleet of other types of vehicles not just big "pumps" which obviously wouldn't make financial sense to use for this and it would be out of action if needed when it is if better use on call.
But you could save even more of their time and resources in buying your own and fitting them . In some Fire and rescue services they send operational crews out to fit them , so in all honesty its actually still costing them a fair wack to drive around in that big pump all day gluing smoke alarms to the ceilings of those too stupid or lazy to do it for themselves . I get why the service exists for the old or the vulnerable . but a fully functioning adult should really ensure that they always have a smoke alarm working in their property anyway .
Better use a patress/plasterboard screws just in case ;)
You are saving their time and resources by getting a free one fitted free by them as it's cheaper for them to do this than send a fire crew on an expensive emergency call out to put out a fire.
nothing in kent or hertfordshire
Photoelectric smoke alarms are generally more responsive to fires that begin with a long period of smoldering (called “smoldering fires”). How they work: Photoelectric-type alarms aim a light source into a sensing chamber at an angle away from the sensor. Smoke enters the chamber, reflecting light onto the light sensor; triggering the alarm. http://www.nfpa.org/safety-information/for-consumers/fire-and-safety-equipment/smoke-alarms/ionization-vs-photoelectric
When you say maintain... The landlord must install a working smoke alarm, if the batteries then need replacing that remit will probably then fall with the tennant as the landlord would legally have fulfilled his duty. Saying that I think its good practice to replace batteries at say each Gas safety inspection. Maybe a bad idea to think the whole maintenance is the landlords remit as I beleive the tennant should also do their bit.
Dont understand how it is more sensitive to certain types of fire? The smoke alarm may be more sensitive to fire, trouble with that is they go off far more often near a kitchen area which results in people taking them down and not putting them back up when they actually need them.
As many have said, it's not just the free smoke alarm but the tailored advice that makes it worth booking a visit from your local station
Yeah do this and get banned by amazon pretty quickly...
