Smoke, Fire & Gas Detection FAQs

How can I test my heat alarm?

All of our heat alarms have test buttons. Press the test button for about 5 seconds regularly to ensure your alarms are operating correctly.

If you wish to test the heat sensor of the alarm, our advice is to use a solo 400 series tester or call a fire alarm servicing company.
