False smoke/CO detector alarms driving me crazy
The worst part is that they're interconnected and have strobe lights that basically turn the house into a disco and blind the living f out of us at night while deafening too (good thing we don't have epilepsy or something). Is it code that smoke/CO detectors need to be interconnected in Toronto and turn into strobe lights (we live in a tiny house and there's no way an alarm in the other side of the house won't wake us up)?
The first time this happened we were made aware that dust or whatever can trigger them so regular vacuuming is necessary, which we started to do, but before moving into this place do we ever remember needing to do this and our detectors never had false alarms like this (aside from chirping for low batt)
Can you guys suggest a particular brand/model that has a good track record? Or a solution to our problem? Are the Nest ones worth every penny?
