Spring Cleaning

By: SafetyLAB

It is that time of year that we all are starting our Spring Cleaning.  I personally do not enjoy the cleaning, but I sure enjoy it when I am done.  This year remember to check your home’s fire safety.  When you are cleaning don’t forget to clean and vacuum your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to clear any dust that may be settling in the alarm.  This is also a good time to check and see if you need to replace your alarms. While you are near the alarms, use their test button and make sure they are working properly.

If you have a fire extinguisher(s) make sure they don’t need recharging.  Clear them away from unnecessary obstacles so they are quick to grab.  If you move the fire extinguisher from its location make sure everyone else in the home knows where it is located. 

Happy Spring Cleaning!!!


OneLink First Alert Alarms

By: SafetyLAB

Several times a week I get phone calls about our OneLink line, usually it is a customer that has heard or read how great the product is, but when they look it up online, it is VERY overwhelming. I don’t blame them! The good news, it is actually quite easy. Here are a few key points to remember:

1)      OneLink Alarms only connect wirelessly with other OneLink Alarms

2)      All OneLink Alarms will connect even if one is a smoke alarm and the other is a carbon monoxide alarm

3)      If you have existing interconnected hardwired alarms in your home, replace one of those alarms with a hardwired OneLink alarm and when the battery operated OneLink alarms sound they will also sound the existing interconnected hardwired alarms and vice versa.

The OneLink line is great for multiply story homes and homes with bedrooms that are spread out. If you have any questions please visit our website at
