    Hi

    Can anyone suggest a fire alarm system for domestic use that allows a series of ideally mains-powered alarms to be interlinked BUT crucially where I can have one of the alarms not make a noise when it goes off but instead flash a light. This is to go in a home-studio hence needing a visual and non-audio warning.

    I appreciate I could install a professional fire alarm system but that is a bit OTT for this purpose.

    Thanks

    Fit a relay base to one of the smoke deters then run a strobe from the relay base

    I would have thought that recording would have to stop if there was a fire in the building.

    Sparkymarka... Not sure I quite understand but thank! Am looking for an off the shelf type smoke alarm but one that is silent.

    Bernardgreen ... That's true of course but the issue is not having sensitive microphones being blasted by big alarm sounds.

    Fit the relay base to an ordinary alarm outside the studio and run the relay switched feed to a light inside the studio. Modifying the alarm by cutting the sounder track would invalidate any warranty and type approvals.
