Why do people put lights and smoke alarms over stair cases?

This is really more "Just For Frustration" than for "Fun". The darn light went out and it's right by the top of the staircase. It's bad enough but the darn smoke alarm is even more over the stair case. I just don't understand people who do that.

  • You need a light on the stairs so you can see where you're going. It wouldn't be safe otherwise.

  • As for the light, for stair saftey. And the smoke detector is low enough to 'sense' a fire downstairs but high enough for it to be heard when you are upstairs, again for saftey.
