The FireAngel SO-601 Toast Proof optical smoke alarm comes with what the manufacturer refers to as a ‘toast proof smoke sensor’ which it claims makes the SO-601 less likely to sound false alarms. It’s powered by a 9V replaceable battery and it’s guaranteed for five years. To find out just how quick it is at detecting smoke from fires – and to put its false alarm claims to the test – we sent it to our lab. Read on for our full review and test results for this FireAngel smoke alarm.
