Comment #5493671 by Michael O Reilly

When we built our house the builders put in two standard smoke alarms hardwired to the main as was the requirement back then, had a close look at them about a year ago and both were ‘out of date’. Replaced them with Nest protects and added another nest protect to another room as well. Great alarms which also notifies us on our mobiles if there is smoke / carbon monoxide detected when we are away from home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=METDdcmklVE So worth checking the ‘replace by’ date on your current alarms – they might need replacement, i think they last roughly about 10 years

    @Michael O Reilly: The Nest Protect system is brilliant. Pricey at €120 but can be bought €105 off amazon. Totally worth it.

    @Caillte: I find it very good as well, i got mine from the play store (form the pc – dosent show up on mobiles), i have set so that all the lights in the house turn on via ifttt https://ifttt.com including the kids bedrooms when an alarm is activated as kids do not always wake up to alarms ,even if the are quite loud. Plus its nice to know is there is smoke in the house while you are away as you could ring a neighbour to check it out ect.. ,with a normal alarm you would just be coming home to a burnt down house :(
