comment How can I safely test my (optical) smoke alarm?
It appears I may have found a way; deliberating burning some bread in a grill pan then holding that under the detectors. Whilst keeping a close eye on it, that seems to allow generating lots of smoke without fire. This did eventually cause the detector to go off. I'm curious if the lowered sensitivity from what I'm used to is due to the optical nature.
