Important notice about smoke detectors
Regular sensitivity testing of your smoke detectors is a requirement of the Fire Alarm Code. Having detectors that
are too sensitive will cause false alarms, while detectors that are not sensitive enough
will cause late alarms or no alarms at all. Read more...

Your life and your insurance liability may depend on it.
Why is sensitivity testing necessary?
The sensitivity of a smoke detector can, and does drift. To help guarantee the proper performance of smoke detectors and reduce potential false alarms, their listed operational sensitivity range should be measured. This regular testing is obligatory under applicable codes and standards:
"... tests shall be performed to ensure that each smoke detector is within its listed and marked sensitivity range ..."
- NFPA 72 1999 Table 7-2.2 (test Methods) 13 g.1
Explanation of the test:
- Sensitivity testing should be done within one (1) year of installing a fire alarm system and every alternate year thereafter.
- After the second sensitivity test (which is performed three (3) years after their installation), you have a choice. Detectors that pass this second sensitivity test may now have their test schedule extended to every five years. Of course they may also be tested more often, if desired. Also, certain conditions may require more frequent sensitivity testing.
- If your choice is to extend the testing beyond the standard alternate year schedule, then you must retain records of ALL smoke detector activity. Whenever an ongoing problem becomes evident with certain smoke detectors, refer to these records and determine if a trend has developed. Problem detectors should have their sensitivity testing schedule made more frequently, again. Specifically, if one year's nuisance alarms exceed the previous, a sensitivity test is required.
- Detectors that fail sensitivity testing may be cleaned, recalibrated, and retested or they must be replaced with new devices. These detectors will then be put back on the original schedule of first and third year, then alternate years, or every 5th year.
- Only detectors that pass their first and third year sensitivity tests are eligible to have their testing extend to every five years.
