Apologies I originally appended this question to another thread but as I didn't get any feedback and I have to submit a quote I've initiated a new thread!
I have a situation where a two storey house is to be let. It has inter linked mains smoke alarms on the ground and first floor only. Do all the smoke alarms have to be fed from the same lighting circuit or can the additional one on the second floor be run off the second floor light circuit. The wording of the Building regs says "regularly used lighting circuit" singular. I can't see any particular issues with it and the inter linking would be RF. It would be buggeration indeed to get a supply from the ground floor lighting circuit to the second floor.

there is no problem with them on seperate circuits if they are RF.
