Design:

The HM-626PHS is a white small-sized circular shaped detector that comes in two main parts, a mounting ring, and the detector itself. One thing I like about this detector is the battery is built in and has a 10-year guarantee, meaning no fiddly battery to replace and no need to buy any batteries at all. Also, something else I like that many of the smoke detectors I have tested from Amazon lack is the fact that this one has actually gained British Standards meaning it’s as trusted as can be.

The user facing side of the alarm has a square test button and the speaker area. All around the sides of the detector is a vented area where the smoke enters the system.

On the back of the detector is a list of instructions about how the alarm works. This goes along with the instruction booklet included in the box.

The circular mounting bracket is installed using two screws and is rather easy to install on a ceiling or wall. It’s literally a two-second job. Once mounted it’s simply a case of twisting the detector into the mount to lock it into place.

In use:

Luckily for me, I haven’t had the opportunity to ‘test’ this alarm in a real life situation. However I have tested it with smoke from a burning pie in an oven and it detected the problem within seconds of me opening the oven door. The noise that this thing puts out is loud at 85db, it’s so loud I was able to hear it from the second floor when it was left near a smoking oven on the ground floor of the house.

Overall:

A great detector that has managed to meet the trusted British Standards that we have come to trust and select when it comes to our safety in our homes. It’s easy to install, doesn’t look too bad and is loud enough to make sure it can be heard at any time of day.

Please Note: I received a sample at a discounted price in return for an honest and unbiased review.
