    I have mains powered Aico smoke detectors connected into my alarm system.
    There is also a test/locate switch fitted in the wall which I assumed I could use for testing purposes.

    However, when I use this, it triggers my alarm (understandable...) and the dialler starts calling my nominated contacts.

    How can I use the test switch without the alarm being invoked please? Also, is a monthly check adequate?
