In order to identify how many alarms to install you need to research the guidelines for fire detection that apply in your local area, using regulations such as Building Regulations or the guidance in BS5839-6, and consider your property type; whether that be private owned, rented, new build, renovated etc. The advice below is purely provided for ‘best practice’ and should not be used independently.

To offer high protection FireAngel advise a smoke alarm within the circulation area of each floor of the property (hallway & landing), as well as within the main habitable areas such as bedrooms and living room – where we usually have more electricals such as extension leads and chargers plugged in.
We recommend you install Smoke Alarms alongside Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms and Kitchen Heat Alarms in your home for complete protection.
The Pro Connected Gateway does require an internet connection and is supplied with an ethernet cable to allow you to connect it to your broadband router.
This connection enables the push notifications from your home alarm network to your mobile or smart devices. But if the internet connection is lost the alarms will still perform flawlessly and will detect danger and alarm in the home, but you won’t receive a push notification to your devices.
