Where should I install smoke detectors?

For maximum safety and the earliest detection possible, you should have a smoke detector in every room of your house. If you don’t install a smoke detector in every room, make sure you have one in every bedroom and in hallways between bedrooms. If possible, have your smoke detectors wired together so that all of them will sound an alarm if one of them is triggered.
