    Don't forget to change the batteries in the smoke detectors in conjunction with springing forward.

    Is it daylight saving tonight already?
  3. My smoke detectors hook up to house power. I'm not sure if that's the best idea or not.

    I had to do this because the remodel of my house. The building code mandated 'hard-wired' smoke detectors with battery back-ups in all bedrooms amongst others.

    Much plaster sawing, much mess, fishing 3-way wires about.

  5. So it is cool if us Canadians just chill and burn down?

    Nice, batteries are expensive
  6. My cat is my fire alarm. He hates fire. Everytime we have a fire in the fireplace he freaks and hides in my room.

    Rock on

    Not a bad idea, along with P.Arron's Battery backup ( a requirement for wired systems IIRC) Less chance of the batteries being dead AND the power being out.

    Wow, that's really..........not smart. Walk down to the local fire station and tell them your plan. Their response should be priceless....
