Do you have smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and a sprinkler system?

I have all three, afraid of the sprinkler going off by accident and everything getting wet. I hate when dinner gets burned and one smoke detector goes off then all the other kick in next the fire department shows up, the noise is horrible. How about you? My smoke detectors have gone off a few time some set off by steam.

  • We have smoke and carbon monoxide too. Our Carbon monoxide detector went off a few weeks ago. I mentioned to my honey that it seemed chilly in the house, he blew it off and went to bed. 2 hours later the detectors started going off.
    I was right! The heat was not working right due to something in the coal stoker being blocked.

  • Yes to all of those. My realtor gave me the carbon monoxide detectors as a housewarming gift when I bought my condo. Oh, and he also warned me never to hang a pinata from the sprinkler thing in the ceiling, since apparently some dumb clucker did that and flooded all six units in his building when the nozzle broke off.

  • Our smoke detector is also a carbon monoxide detector. No sprinklers.
