Dust, and certainly smoke, will cause your smoke detector to trip. Unlike other devices on your system (motion detectors, door contacts, glassbreaks, etc.), you cannot bypass any fire zones from your keypad.
If you are having any work done, please call us at 604.664.1087 and request that we put your fire zones on “Test” for the hours of the day that work is being done. This will ensure that we do not dispatch the Fire Department needlessly.
Upon receipt of any fire alarm, we dispatch the Vancouver Fire Department immediately. Once they have been sent, the Fire Department WILL NOT cancel a response.
