FAQs (8)
Q. I want to install an interlinked smoke alarm system throughout my home, but what type of smoke alarms do I need in different rooms?
A.

We recommend a heat alarm in the kitchen, optical alarms in living rooms and hallway and ionisation alarms on landings.

Q. Do you need an electrician to connect mains powered smoke alarms?
A.

It is necessary that an electrician installs mains powered smoke alarms.

Q. When the test button is pressed on an interlinking smoke alarm will this cause all the other units to go off, too?
A.

Yes, by pressing the test button on one alarm all the units in that family will also be activated. To 'teach' the units which other smoke alarms belong to the same family, the smoke alarms have to be set up together during the installation. This is done by pressing a 'housecoding button' or similar process.

Q. If a false alarm goes off can pressing the hush button on any of the interlinking alarms stop all the units beeping?
A.

No, to stop the alarms from sounding the hush button on the unit that started the process needs to be pushed. Pressing any other unit will just silence that one unit. The unit can be identified by the rapidly flashing red LED.

Q. Can a smoke alarm be fitted with a sticky adhesive pad in a let property?
A.

The sticky pad is suitable for all battery operated smoke alarms. However, we cannot judge if battery alarms are suitable for your let property, as let properties usually require mains powered alarms. There is some advice to this in the governments guides to fire risk assessments. http://www.safelincs.co.uk/Fire-Risk-Assessment/
Also see the LACoRS guide for let properties.
