Smoke Alarm Reminders Service

Keeping your smoke alarms in good working order protects you and your family against fire. By pressing the test button on your alarm you can check if the battery in your smoke alarm is still charged and find out if your alarm is ready and working. However, it is just too easy to forget this crucial test. We can offer to help you by reminding you via email or SMS, and at your chosen frequency, to test your smoke alarm regularly.

We also offer a battery replacement reminder. Batteries should ideally be changed before the alarm starts to give a low battery warning. Standard alkaline batteries should be changed yearly, while lithium batteries usually require replacement after 5 years. For alarms that have sealed batteries, although the battery cannot be replaced, the alarm should still be tested regularly. Regardless of the battery type, the smoke alarm unit itself needs to be replaced after 10 years. Again, we offer to send you a reminder after the 10 years.

The service is entirely free and can be cancelled at any time.
