How to Smoke in an Apartment With Smoke Detectors

The smell of smoke can be unpleasant and even unbearable. So when you smoke in your apartment, it’s essential to do so safely without causing a fire or setting off the smoke detector. That way, everyone is happy, and no one gets hurt!

How to Smoke in an Apartment With Smoke Detectors

Luckily for you, we have put together some helpful tips on how to get away with smoking indoor without anyone knowing about it. In this article, we’ll explore how to smoke in an apartment with smoke detectors.

Step to Follow on How to Smoke in an Apartment With Smoke Detectors 

Step One: Determine

First, you need to determine if the smoke detectors are battery operated or wired into your apartment. If, for example, your smoke detector is battery operated, follow directions in step two. If it is wired into the wall outlet in the room with the smoke detector, make sure there is no power going to that outlet before smoking.

You can check this by looking at the back of the smoke detector and seeing if there is a battery. Also, you can check for power by using a multimeter and checking for voltage between the two prongs on the plug. Make sure to unplug it before measuring! If there is no voltage present, then you know that the outlet has been shut off.

Step Two: Smoke

If all smoke detectors in the building are battery-operated, follow normal smoking procedures. The reason for this is that the battery should not go off unless you snuff out your roach, and it’ll just get annoying. However, if some of them are wired into an outlet, make sure there is no power going to that outlet before smoking.

If there is no voltage present, then you know that the outlet has been shut off.

Step Three: Blow Out Smoke Detectors

Make sure to blow out the smoke detectors before you start smoking, though, because even if they’re battery-operated, smoke could potentially set them off and cause unnecessary attention. As stated in step two, make sure there is no power going to your outlet, or this won’t work.

Remove the Power Source

If this is not possible, and you can’t blow out or unplug the smoke detectors, try exhaling directly onto the smoke detectors. This may or may not work, and you can expect it to trigger a false fire alarm in most cases if it does. It will be awkward and uncomfortable if someone shows up, but at least your apartment won’t get smoked up too bad.

Step Four: Remove Pending Alarm

After you have smoked your weed, if the smoke detectors did go off and a fireman shows up, tell them that it was just a false alarm. Since they cannot find any actual evidence of fire/smoke from cigarettes or bongs, they can’t do anything about it except take down the information and file a report.

This is much better than them finding bongs and paraphernalia. Do not lie to the fireman if you can avoid it. If you say you were smoking weed and they catch you with bongs/paraphernalia, the fireman can use his authority to confiscate it.

Step Five: Take Caution

If you are trying to smoke at night, it is usually safer because of the time frame of getting away with false alarms. After all, you aren’t going to drag a bunch of firemen out in the middle of the night for nothing, so most likely, they won’t show up. But if they do, follow the steps in the article and you should be good.

Suppose there is a fire drill in your building. In that case, it is also much easier to cover up a false alarm because everyone else in your building will probably have done the same thing to avoid going out in the cold or whatever reason they have for not wanting to participate. If this happens, follow step five, and you should be good.

Step Six: Clean Up

Just make sure to clean up after yourself, as usual. If everything goes well, you shouldn’t have a problem. Just make sure the fire alarm is turned off, and there is no power going to your apartment’s outlet before smoking. This will prevent the smoke detectors from going off.

If everything turns out okay, your apartment building will never know you smoked weed, and hopefully, you can continue to do so without any problems. However, if the smoke alarms go off and someone shows up, remember to keep your cool. This will help in how to smoke in an apartment with smoke detectors.

Step Seven: Additional Tips

If you have a hard time removing the batteries from your smoke detectors, there is another way to disable them. If you live in an apartment complex with many people, this might work: Find out which apartments are close to yours and on the same circuit breaker should be listed on the side of it.

Turn Off That Circuit Breaker

Then turn off that circuit breaker and cross your fingers that it affects the smoke detectors in your apartment. If all of them do go off, you will need to approach the other people on the circuit breaker, tell them that you live just beside or above them, and ask if they can try unplugging their smoke detectors.

If not, and the firemen come knocking on your door, at least you tried, and you can’t be held responsible for their actions. This is a good idea because both of these problems will cause the same dilemma, and if you’re lucky enough to live in an apartment complex with many people, this plan might work.

Conclusion

To avoid a hefty fine or eviction, make sure the smoke detector is not near where you are smoking. If it needs to be fixed, contact your landlord as soon as possible and let them know about the issue.

Most people who rent apartments don’t have their own designated space for smoking, so they need to find an area that won’t set off their building’s alarms or violate any rules in place by management or landlords.
