Smoke alarms, are they appropriate.

Part of the communal areas of purpose built sheltered housing flats on three floors with a lift that has a full monitored fire alarm system, that closes the internal fire doors and opens the exterior doors when activated. 

Each individual flat has a heat alarm in its hallway connected to the communal alarm system and also has an Aico interconnected smoke and heat alarm system that is connected to the intercom system allowing the call centre to monitor them and speak to the tenants to ask why they have been activated. 

Can you think of any justification for installing very basic domestic battery operated smoke alarms in the communal areas?

Because I cannot think of any way their installation can be justified, particularly as they will not be monitored in any way and should not be required.

Well done Andy.
I wonder if you could get things moving on the "Update on the old forum archive"
thread now that BOD is involved 😉
