  1. What minimum distance should the Ei144 heat alarm be mounted from the cooker in a kitchen to maximise alarm performance but minimise false alarms.

  2. Hi there how do you replace a battery on a smoke alarm. It is an EI Professional smoke alarm with a tray to pull out the battery. Above it it looks like there is a facility for a key, do they need a key or can the tray be pulled out without it.
    Regards
