Always wary about programs like this although it says it is from the fire service you also get ones that are supposed to be from your bank.

So I like to get conformation before trying said programs just to be in the safe side.

Hence anyone pressed the button yet.Maybe I am just a bit to careful.

Don't need to press the button on my smoke alarm as the slightest hint of burnt toast sets it off on a regularly.

However the Carbon Monoxide alarm is a different matter and needs checking on a regular basis. Don't forget if your CO alarm keeps beeping it has probably come to the end of its 5 year life and needs replacing. They are much cheaper now than they used to be and can be replaced for around £15-£20. A friend of mine was grateful for her's recently, when it alerted her to a fault with her boiler, and probably saved hers and her family's lives.

I have a helpful man from the Fire Station that comes and checks mine every so often, he came when we moved and transferred one that also has wifi to a flashing light and a gizmo that goes under pillow and shakes you awake.

The one in the lounge talks as well, it does both carbon monoxide and fire alarms. It flashes light, sounds the alarm then shouts at you, keeps on doing each in turn until you switch it off. Rather fun when test button is pressed :)

Even more fun when you have no one to talk to, I will need to get one of those. Also need to have one of those gizmos that vibrates your pillow or vibrates something as that sound fun. time for one of my pills methinks.
