Default Will Hookah Smoke trigger a Smoke Detector?

Just wondering, I'd like to smoke inside and I have like 3 in my house which are freaking loud.

So if you know, let me know

Thanks, Hint!

nope. ive got 4 or 5 in the house, one in my room just about directly over where I smoke. the only way a smoke detector will go off is if you light a QL under it or if you have black coals that are partially lit and giving off smoke.

Well that sounds good, I light my coals outside because they smell like crap anyway, plus I don't want to stink up the house.

Thanks for the help!

I smoke in my room, about 14 feet by 14 feet and usually smoke under the detector. I've always lit QL's under it and smoked long sessions in the room with no affect on the detectors

we thought so too, so one time we lit one and whle it was sparking, we blew it into the detector directly- worst decision ever, not only did it go off, IT WOULDN'T TURN OFF. we must've caught stuff in it or a spark melted some wire or something because we had to go get a new one for my room after, it just wouldn't shut off after!

I used to set my smoke detector off in my apartment all the time. Mostly when lighting coals on the coil burner not from the smoke of the hookah itself. I ended up lighting coals with a fan closer by and it resolved the issue.
