Smoke, Fire & Gas Detection FAQs

Which smoke alarms should I use in a bed and breakfast?

We recommend long life battery powered smoke alarms for B&Bs as they contain 10 year lithium batteries which last the full life of the detector. We also offer a radio-interlinked option so if one alarm detects a fire, all connected alarms go off.

Alternatively you can install mains powered alarms which are also available with longlife backup batteries and wireless interlinking.
