    jesus christ...every time I make toast the entire house is alerted to a 3 alarm fire that is potentially lethal to us all, i guess. when did this become the thing with fire alarms and has it actually saved any lives to make them so sensitive that even making toast in your kitchen sets them off?

    i just toasted a bagel and it wasn't even brown and the fire alarm was triggered. scared the shit out of my gf and the cat.

    this isn't about me fucking up toast david. it's about fire alarms that are so sensitive you can't fart without triggering a red alert.

    And why is they seem to chirp in the middle of the night when the battery is low, then it stops, then it starts again.

    Usually, when you trace back technological deficiencies, it always goes back to operator error.
