Smoke Alarms Going Off

26 May 2012, 19:53
Elena and I had a big challenge in the house.

When we started to do normal cooking smoke detectors would go off on the slightest provocation.

He had to open the kitchen door and all windows when cooking. It was a huge hassle.

I went to Comcast and the Xfinity Home Security Division. They recommended some specialized smoke detectors hooked into the security system wireless. I liked the idea.

A technician came out and installed two very high quality smoke detectors. If they do happen to go off while cooking is going on, a prompt appears on the screen.

We have 30 seconds to disarm the smoke alarm and continue cooking.

Last night we cooked a chicken dinner and the new smoke alarms remained silent. It worked. Xfinity well done!!!
