I agree naperlou - we usually grab the smoke alarm and remove it from the vicinity until the smoke dissapates when we get smoke from cooking - it would be nice not having to do that.. I wonder if it distinguisheds between a gas leak and a fire in the alarm mode? I would also like to see a battery level autodetect that would send out a signal when the batteries needed to be changed.

I need this.  We have a smoke detector that is in a bad (good) place to detect smoke from the oven.  Unfortunately, this goes off all the time and you have to blow the smoke away (we usually wave a towel).  I also like the communication options.  This is one useful device and it seems very well made.
