I'm looking for a few more that are easy to install. Any suggestions gratefully received.

I think the fire service will do an inspection and recommend and install smoke alarms

We had the fire service come round ours and they installed the Fire Angel ST-750 [www.fireangel.co.uk]. You can't get any easier to install than that.

Most of the battery operated ones are all pretty similar to install: find a joist in the ceiling in an appropriate place, screw the smoke alarm's base plate to it, attach smoke alarm and test.

Thanks for the link.

Shouldn't have to find a joist - they're light enough to be supported by plasterwork

Or double sided tape

No joists and double sided tape sounds much easier.

Hi all - does anyone have any recommendation for smoke alarm NOT operated by batteries? I have alarms in most rooms & have to replace 9V batteries once a year.
Im concerned on my impact on the environment and would like to find a greener solution please. Any recommendation would be much appreciated!!

Mark - thanks for the recommendation! On the website they mentioned 10-year battery powered. Has it worked so far please / how long have you had it for?

Thanks all!
Catherine

You can get 10-year smoke and heat sensor alarms (see: [www.safefiredirect.co.uk] and [www.screwfix.com] for examples). I have a ten-year heat sensor alarm in my kitchen. They use long life lithium batteries, but are 'sealed for life' so you would have to replace the unit after ten years.

I requested a visit via their website.

Never heard from them.
