I've got a townhouse and in it are 4 alarms, wired. On the ground floor the alarm is in the utility room, next to the garage and shower room. This is handy for informing everyone within 500m when a guest is showering in my home, even with an extractor on. Upstairs there's one in the kitchen and one right outside the kitchen on the landing. Both of these are great for letting people know when sausages are being lightly fried. Up upstairs, there's one on the landing. I actually don't mind this guy. He's alright. Now I don't want to burn to death in my sleep but I'd love to be able to just do day to day tasks without the alarms going off. I set the ground floor one off today when showering downstairs (I've never used that shower but we have decorators in so my usual is out of service). It was 6:30 AM and after 4 minutes of wafting it wouldn't stop so I tore it off the ceiling in fury. Are there any particular alarms I should look at? I have a nest thermostat, are the nest protects good? I saw it has a warning stage so it could tell me it's detected something and give me a chance to confirm it's bacon before it starts screaming. Is that right? Do others do that? I don't care about the cost really I just want to be safe. In silence.
