For all the versions that are out there, over many genres, this is the best version of Adagio for Strings by far:

Aye, I've had a look, my house will be a nightmare getting cables run.

Even using RF detectors, you still have to get power to them somehow.

Deadline has now been pushed back to 2022

They have a sealed in, long life battery. When the battery dies you replace the unit. 
We’re already fully compliant, but had to relocate the one fitted in our hall as it was set off every time someone opened the bathroom door after a shower.

Our house sale has fallen through.  Even though it's brutal news, we are actually kind of relieved as it's been going that way for a while, it's almost good to get it over with.

I told you to tell them to fuckoff on Sunday. I really wish people would listen to me.

Thought I was seeing dolphins in the Tay at Broughty Ferry but it's just people out for a swim/needing rescued.

That was your chance to do the David Hasselhoff thing and swim oot there and rescue them.

I can't say for sure, but I think this is for new builds.
If it is a cover all, who is going to police it?

Have heard today it’s getting pushed back to 2022 and it applies to all - even individual private owners. Not sure how it’ll be policed but I expect insurance companies might take note. Excuse not to pay out?

I've had a look around today and Fireangel products via Screwfix come out at £49.99 per module.

These are sealed battery units (no wiring) a bolt on is a wireless pro which works with an app, this needs to be connected to your hub via an ethernet cable.

That's a fanny-on. My smoke alarms are wired so I'll need to get a sparky to install another two according to those rules, the one on my landing isn't linked to the others and I just replaced it so that was a waste of money.

It's a shite bit of legislation, but at the same time it's something I need to do. I only have 1 alarm in my house, in the hallway (I live in a bungalow, so it's at pretty much the centre of the house). Will need to get one in the living room and a heat one in the kitchen, as well as replace the hallway one.

The costs could be way higher for many folk if they go to get an extra detector or two wired in, only to be told their fuseboard (goodbye to £450ish) or even worse, their wiring (££££££££££) is a shambles and mains alarms can’t be fitted until that’s all safe. Merry Christmas!

See those folk with 3 or 4 BTL flats/houses that charge extortionate rent? I truly hope each and every one of their homes are completely fucked and costs them an absolute fortune to comply.

There’s a street just down from me where a landlord from down south owns 9 of the 14 semi detached homes and charges £600 a month rent. My pals gran lives on the street and he’s approached her twice asking to buy her home privately.

I for one hope he’s completely fucked and ends up having to sell it all.

The units we have are sealed 10 year battery units, each one with its own pre-installed RF module forming their own RF network.

No wiring, no hub, no requirement for changes to fuse boxes.

All that stuff has been the law for rental places for 5 years now, so it's more a case of bringing the owner-occupier market into line. It was really housing associations that struggled with the cost, hence the regulations being slackened off to allow the wireless systems.

For the change of career thread, it's a good time to be an electrician.
