What kind of smoke detectors and locations for them do you recommend?

We recommend that residents purchase dual-sensor detectors for every level of the home and hallways outside the bedrooms. These detectors sense both slow smoldering fires and rapid growth fires. We also recommend the 10-year lithium battery models to eliminate the need to remember to change the battery. Visit our smoke detector page to see if you qualify for a free one.
