Set sensitivity from smoke detector

Community Member


Is it possible to chance the sensitivity from a smoke detector?

When i'm cooking in the kitchen, sometimes the smoke detector goes off in the dining romm. (there is an open connection between the two rooms)

And no There is no real smoke / fire 😉

Thanx for any tips

I have the same issue. Suggestions?

Community Member

same here - the detector goes off due to steam from a hot shower and from a very small amount of cooking steam.  Would like to be able to lower the setting so it doesnt fire off for these events.

I would also like an answer to this question. Several needless false alarms that scare my cats and send them scattering.

I would also like a feature for this. Needless alarms here and with a newborn it has woken up her sleep pattern. 😠
