The importance of smoke alarms in providing an early warning of fire cannot be underestimated. Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing the number of deaths and injuries due to fire. Fire spreads fast—working smoke alarms give you an early warning so you can exit the property quickly.

At Master Spark, we recognise the importance of a reliable and efficient smoke alarm system. With our expertise, we can select the ideal alarm type and system, ensuring optimal protection for your home and your loved ones. Whether it’s a standalone smoke alarm or a fully integrated system, we assess your requirements and recommend the most suitable option.

How many smoke alarms do I need?

As a minimum, one smoke alarm should be fitted on every floor of your home, ideally on the ceiling of a hallway or landing.

In rooms, particularly bedrooms, where you have electrical equipment  (a television, games console or where you charge items), remember that if the detector is outside the room on the landing and the door to the room is closed, it will take more time for the smoke from a fire inside the room to get out and reach the alarm, so consider fitting smoke alarms in these rooms too.

It is also a good idea to fit a heat alarm in the kitchen as this is where many fires start. In the event of a fire, the heat alarm will sense the heat from the fire and will then sound to warn the household.

We always recommend that the alarms are interlinked either via a cable or a wireless receiver base. With this set up, if one alarm sounds it will send a signal to all the other alarms so they all sound together. Therefore whatever part of the property someone may be, there will be an alarm near sounding and warning them.
