Expert review

The FireAngel Pro FP1740W2-R is a mains-powered linkable heat alarm. Heat alarms work differently to smoke alarms in how they detect fires. Rather than looking for smoke particles in the air, they respond to rapid rises in temperature. This makes them better for kitchens, where fires commonly start, but where you wouldn’t position a smoke alarm because it would be triggered by fumes from cooking. It’s a linkable alarm making it suitable for homes in Scotland when the smoke and heat alarms law changes in 2022. It can be paired with the following Fire Angel Pro smoke alarms: FP1640W2-R, FP1740W2-R, FP2620W2-R, FP1720W2-R, FP1820W2-R, WST-230, WHT-230, ST-230, HT-230, WST-630 and WHT-630. With this model you have the option to manage or test the system using the FireAngel Connected app on your smartphone or other portable device. It comes with a five-year warranty and has two sealed batteries for back-up if the mains fails. They are designed to last for the 10-year life of the alarm. But how well does it work?  The rigorous Which? test programme provides the answers. Read on for our full review of this Fire Angel heat alarm.
