Im not sure if mine work or not. I let off my smoke machine in the house recently (like you do) and they never went off. I will have to blast it right at them properly to test them.

Ah!
(sorry, stupid question of the evening)
Are you saying that just because the bleeper works it's not wise to assume that the sensor works?

I don't know for sure but normally a feint wisp of smoke sets them off. My ones beep when you push the test button but don't go off when you open the door to a smoke engulfed room right next to them. I also doubt the 20 year old ni cad back up batteries are any use any more either.
