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.


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.

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.

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 .

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.

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.

As part of a home automation system there's a lot of useful features that having nothing to do with the smoke alarm feature.I personally would prefer it to have a wired ethernet connection option, since in the event of a fire there's no guarantee you've got a wifi network and a house full of smoke isn't going to help with the wifi signal.On balance I think I'm happy with my smoke alarms being independent of my network, battery and mains, and nothing fancy to fail. Those that think their children are safe had better read this article http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/06/130627131827.htm seems no amount of electronic wizardry is a substitute for planning ahead to make sure you wake your kids.mike



The wifi only handles the connection to nests servers, to generate the mobile notifications. The protects can still talk to each other using their zigbee/802.15.4 radios if no wifi AP is present. It's a meshing protocol, hence the range will likely be further than your wifi network anyway
robertybob - of course they were not Nest Protect, you would not expect expensive ones for free, but they were smoke alarms and they do the job, which is all I expect.
Just picked one up in Currys, Lisburn. Given that its about £20 for a decent make carbon monoxide monitor, with everything this offers, its a no brainer. Gets great reviews at £100.

The fire service will come at night as well. It is not too involved, if you say to them at the start of the visit you just want the alar(s), that is what you get!
Not bad but never was that rrp. Been a tenner a number of times.

Also, this model is better than anything the FB fit.

Good alarm. If you give it a hoover every few months no false alarms either

Voted hot just due to the fact that this reminded me my upstairs fire alarm needs replaced. Not by this model I'm after a wired in mains rechargeable jobbie from screwfix.

You'd pay any price to save family.
great price - unfortunately, I bought 50 of these a month ago at the original price from Amazon.
Don't you get these free? I've recently got 3 new ones fitted in!!!
