“Point smoke detectors should be functionally tested by a method that confirms smoke can enter the detector chamber and produce a fire alarm signal (e.g. by the use of apparatus that generates simulates smoke or suitable aerosols around the detector). It should be ensured that the material used does not cause damage to, or affect the subsequent performance of the detector…”
