l  Aerosols, steam or other fumes activating the heat or smoke detectors

l  Temperature and humidity change

l  A sub-contractor working near a smoke or heat detector

l  The burning of candles and incense

l  Accidental damage to a ‘break glass’ call point

l  A build-up of dust within a heat or smoke detector

l  Cooking fumes, such as burnt toast.
