Smoke Detector Installation Guide


The Smoke Detector alerts you at the first signs of smoke. You should place them near sleeping areas and make sure that one is on every floor within your home. To avoid false alarms, avoid placing the Smoke Detector near a furnace, stove, fireplace, kitchen, garage, or any bathroom with a shower.

We also recommend cleaning your Smoke Detector once a month, to avoid false alarms from dust and debris build up. You can learn more about false alarms and how to avoid them in this article.
