A harmless mistake on her end, but be glad there was no real fire. Next time open a window? Or two?
Why is this getting downvoted? There are some doorbells that really do look like smoke detectors, and smoke detectors aren't always on the ceiling. Also, when you cook something that's going to smoke, you're supposed to use the vent and open a window in the kitchen. Just because you're getting it from cooking something doesn't mean that breathing in that smoke is good for you, and it will just hang around in the house if you have no ventilation whatsoever.
It's cool. My mother cooks things that set off the fire alarm all the time. We do not cover it (which is actually illegal). You know what doesn't happen? Firemen coming over because the alarm went off. You go over, hit the little button, and it stops. It's not connected to the internet, so it doesn't magically alert them or anything.
Well I guess they do look kind of similar...but it's a stretch
Seriously generation bashing doesn't even cover this. How retarded do you have to be to put a bag over the door bell instead of a smoke detector? Hint smoke detector is on the ceiling.
Yes the doorbell BUTTON is outside. But the thing that makes noise is inside the house. Most commonly it is on the wall, but as stated above can also be on the ceiling. Mines different because its an intercom system so there's more then one doorbell noise thing. And since when are smoke detectors connected to the fire department system? Ours just beep and you have to call them.
