SAFETY FIRST

In­tasafety Smoke De­tec­tor (R210, Builders Ware­house) In­tasafety is a rel­a­tively new lo­cal brand but, un­like its com­peti­tors, its fo­cus is purely on fire equip­ment, so you can bet it has cov­ered all bases when it comes to specs and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. This unit has a hush func­tion, which al­lows you to quickly si­lence a false alarm with­out re­set­ting the whole unit.

EARLY WARN­ING

Yale Smoke De­tec­tor (R249, Makro) Bet­ter known for its pad­locks and door locks, Yale also pro­duces home­safety gear. Like most smoke de­tec­tors it doesn’t re­spond to heat but is trig­gered by par­ti­cles in the air (typ­i­cally smoke). It alerts you with a blink­ing light and an au­dio sig­nal when the bat­tery is low.
