The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) states that the best location for a smoke detector is on the ceiling near a doorway or stairway.You should also have a smoke detector on the hallway ceiling outside of sleeping areas (bedrooms). Put one either inside or just outside the kitchen.

I can repair a smoke detector HFP-11. Please send video


from what i can see online, the hfp-11 is a very sophisticated device that can only be used as part of a siemens fire alarm system, and as such should not be tampered with...if the device has a problem, you would do well to call either the company that installed it or contact the manufacturer for a list of authorized service companies in your area.

Smoke detector removed from ceiling. Only wires visible, but I still hear chirping.


Look at the detector you removed, and all others that may still be wired in.
They all have battery backup. Although the detectors are hardwired, the chirping is coming from one of the detectors to let you know to change the battery.

I have replaced the batteries to the smoke detectors and they keep beeping. What is the problem?


It is possible that the battery is not contacting the metal clips inside. See if the can be adjusted out. More likely the detector is not recognizing the voltage of the new battery. You can try removing the detector from the ac power install the battery and reconnecting it to the ac. It should correct the issue.

Had customer with CO detector sounding quick double chirp about every five minutes. What is this?


This is not a beeping smoke detector. It is probably a CO detector that was installed by your alarm company. GE model 240-COE will give a double beep every 5.5 minutes when the device reaches end of life. Call your alarm company to have it replaced.

The sensor Honeywell TC807A 1036 (Smoke Detector), is compatible with a NFS-320 Fire Alarm Control Panel?


I don't know if that particular smoke is compatible or not, but the NFS-320 is a commercial rated UL864 Revision 9 fire panel, which means the documentation is part of the UL listing. This means that in order for a device to be compatible with the system, it must be listed in the Installation Instructions as compatible. I couldn't find any mention of that particular smoke in any of the documentation I found for that alarm panel.

I want to disable the remote sensor function on the first alert sa302. My tv remote keeps setting off my smoke detector


First you need to remove the battery, hold test button down while re-installing battery, when detector beeps,it disarms remote feature. Normal detector then. this should dissable the remote feature. this is a very common complaint. If for some reason it wont turn the remote off get a piece of tape to cover the sensor.
If your happy with this solution a vote for the thumb up would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for using Fix Ya

Kidde smoke alarm won't stop chirping . I have replaced the batteries and nothing seems to fix the problem


Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.
