Optical or ionisation, and for which location?

Recommended Posts

After finishing my boys attic 'conversion' I now need to fine tune which detectors go where. 

I need

1) for attic room

2) for back bedroom ( above kitchen )

3) landing

4) hall ( current battery one goes off when I cook steaks ) 

5) kitchen ( heat obviously ) 

 

My main concern upstairs is technology catching fire. PC / tv / consoles etc on standby through the day ( 4 kids so don't even say to put everything off during the day, never going to be a realistic option ), with same downstairs but more about appliances there. 

 

Location 4 is the tricky one, but advice as to which is better, where, and hopefully why would be gratefully received. 

Thanks all.  

 

Edit to add : there are two bedrooms under the attic room, should I go crazy and cover those rooms too, or will the landing detector suffice?

You can't go wrong with Aico. With that many, possibly more I'd also fit a test/locate button to pinpoint which one in a hurry. Don't forget C02 up there if required.

I just followed the Aico advice so optical in the "common areas" and as I'm cheap I went for the 140 series not the 160 or the multi sensor.

Nothing wrong with the 140 series, as long as they are RC model,

As above , don't forget the CO detector,
