| For the maximum in safety protection we strongly recommend
installation in every room (except bathrooms and kitchens).
Research indicates substantial increases in warning time can
be achieved with additional detectors.
The minimum level of protection is one per floor ensuring one
outside each sleeping area. A single smoke alarm will give some
protection if it is correctly installed, but most homes will
require two or more to ensure that a reliable early warning
It is important to ensure that the alarm is in a location loud
enough to awaken people sleeping in their bedrooms. Ideally
position the unit between sleeping areas and the most likely
source of fire (living room for example).
Check by sounding the alarm in its intended location to ensure
you are able to hear it in each bedroom with the door closed.
If you cannot hear it over a radio (set at a reasonably loud
level) the chances are it would not waken a sleeping person.
If a location cannot be found to alert all sleeping areas it
is advisable to link to other HOUSESAFE alarms.
For maximum protection you should install the alarm in all rooms
where fire is a risk and where people sleep.
Important: This smoke alarm is designed for individual
household units or small offices and not for multi occupancy
blocks, commercial or industrial use.
