My Nest smoke alarm was great … right up to the point it went nuts

Previous employer had the "interesting" issue of having both volatile solvents and radiation sources on-site. We got regular training from the local Fire Brigade[1] and our alarm system was directly connected to the local fire station.

Which caused a little embarrasment (and nearly a P45) when a member of staff decided to have a crafty smoke near a smoke detector rather than the approved site outside the property boundary.

[1] We got to play with fire extinguishers of all types - mostly the ones where the rated life had just expired and they had been replaced.
