    i got one of those triple detectors at the weekend (part nmumber 16093).
    i can't seem to get it to work. i followed the instructions, turned the adjustment screw etc but the buzzer never goes off.
    is this dection an exact science or is always this hit and miss. can any1 recommend *another* model that I could check out?

    thanks,
    tony

    I have the screwfix one and have no real problems with it ....can be a bit sensitive at times. I'd send it back!
