I didn't realize it takes an engineer to install a smoke detector. Man I have to remember to add "engineer" to my resume.
@Not him again, next time I put one in, I'm definitely going to put this on it. As an "engineer" I do this quite a bit
As a remodeler no one ever changes these guys out after 10 years, ever! So “ceiling” is just as good and will make the next remodeler chuckle
@seeUpee, it does end up messing up the fire department if there is a false alarm there. Most states require activated detector date of installation and make and model for the reports and if it isn't marked with a date they can make the owner replace the detectors
@Firefighter95, I take you would know on the matter firefighter95. If that was the case wouldn’t you just go by the manufacturing date stamped on the device?
@seeUpee, in my jurisdiction it's by installation, and we dont pull detectors to see manufacture date unless its posted exposed or is not hard wired
@Firefighter95, all these new Bluetooth ones I have been installing with a 10 year battery life and hardwired in do not have a place for installation date on the outside. This is why I asked.
The fire alarm company I worked for would use a p touch printer to make a small label on the heads from 5 years ago
I don’t know if this man is a genius or an idiot...
