Test your smoke DETECTORS!

I shot some compressed air in it, per manufacturer instructions, and tried multiple new-out-of-the-package 9Vs. They are listed for 10 years and were made in 2006 (November 15, according to the sticker).


Thanks for share your personal experience here.

Well as per my experience, i always check the smoke detectors at a regular basis. So if i found any problem in it than i quickly changed that equipment.

So i want to say all people must check their Smoke Detector at regular time intervals.
