Benefits of Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms are a great way to protect your home in the age of smart devices. They can help you keep track of what’s happening in your home while you’re away, and they provide peace of mind if there is a fire. 

Smoke alarms can help you keep track of what’s happening in your home while you’re away. You can set up a schedule so that an alarm will sound anytime someone leaves or enters the house, and you can also use the alarm to monitor fires. 

Important Safety Tips for Living With Smoke Alarms

1. Make sure your smoke alarm is installed properly. Smoke alarms should be placed on the ceiling near the entrance of every room in your home. Make sure the alarm is hardwired into your home's electrical system, and test the alarm monthly to make sure it's working properly. 

2. Test your smoke alarm yearly in conjunction with a fire drill. Have everyone in the home evacuate to a safe location, and test the alarm after everyone has returned. If it goes off during the fire drill, it means the battery is probably low and needs to be replaced. 

3. Keep your smoke alarm clean and free of dust and debris. Clean smoke alarms regularly using a dustbin and brush, or use a vacuum cleaner with a dustbin attachment. Remove all batteries when cleaning an alarm, and never place an active battery in a non-smoking area.
