Who is the manufacture of the detcetor?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I'm not sure, it is not my house (my friend's house I'm cat-sitting) and it's very high on the ceiling
Expert:  George Smith replied 11 days ago.

You will have to reach the detector to reset it or remove it!

It's too high, I can't reach it. Do you know if there are services in Edinburgh where someone can come do this for me? Willing to pay!!
