Home Security & Safety Tips : How to Choose the Right Location to Install a Smoke Detector


Hi! This is Jon for Expert Village. In this
video clip I will be showing you step 1 for installing a smoke detector. Now there should
be a smoke detector installed in every room of your house including every hallway. This
room does not have a smoke detector in it so we need to find a good location for it.
The smoke detector that I have chosen happens to detect smoke and carbon monoxide. If you
take a look at the packing, you will notice that this is designed for 4 bedrooms. They
do have other smoke detectors that are designed for kitchens, hallways or other rooms of the
house. I am going to be installing the smoke detector towards the door of this room in
the event that there was a fire outside of this room, the smoke would come down the hallway
and come in raised to the ceiling right in front of that door and set that smoke detector
off first.

  1. i'm pretty sure this kind would be better about a foot down from the ceiling on a wall, away from any corners.

    this is the lowest you should install a normal smoke alarm, but the best place for a carbon monoxide alarm is 5-6 feet off the floor so i think high on the wall is a good compromise
