Comment on temperature sensors in smoke detectors from article on April 2, 2022
            Thanks for your hard work for the industry. The freeze warning in the 5808 is intended to let a dealer and customer know that the device is in trouble do to the fact it may not function below 40 degrees.  The wireless motion detector has the same setup.
            It is not intended to save anything in the building from freezing. Our zone list description reads "Zone 12 second floor smoke detector freeze warning" 
            The ceiling is the last place to install a low temperature sensor. Feel free to share.

            Thanks for the clarification.
            This scenario could potentially fall into the "no good deed goes unpunished" category.  You don't want to tell the customer that you have gratuitously installed heat detectors when you know that you haven't.  Heat sensor to let you know the smoke detector may not function is not a heat sensor. 
           The All in One, whether residential or commercial, requires a Schedule of Equipment and Services in which you detail the equipment and systems you are installing.  Many companies use their proposal as the Schedule, which is fine.  I'm not so sure it is necessary to even mention that the smoke detector has a heat sensor.  That information is likely to confuse the customer without more information.
