Digoo DG-SA01 review

Product alert

Don't Buy this smoke alarm – it failed to detect smoke in six of our eight fire tests.


When set the task of detecting smoke this alarm failed to detect the danger and sound the alarm on six out of eight occasions. It’s one of the most unresponsive and potentially dangerous smoke alarms we’ve seen and in our tests, we found it unable to reliably detect smoke and that’s why we’ve made it a Don’t Buy.

Expert review

This is a dangerously unresponsive smoke alarm and we urge you to not buy it. Listed with the brand name Digoo on various websites, it failed to sound in many of our smoke-detection tests. In your home the consequences of such poor smoke detection don’t bear thinking about, so don’t be tempted by the low prices you might see it selling for on online marketplaces. It doesn’t detect smoke reliably and we’ve made it a Don’t Buy.
