This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Hi, I just made this invisible smoke alarm. I cloned it to be 100% invisible. It works fine to alert for fire accidents. I hope you like it. Required CEP. I did make an invisible burglar alarm. I was told that a cloned burglar alarm won't work at all. **Update** My invisible burglar alarm is working fine now. Use my profile to find my invisible alarm. :D
Edit: link to my burglar alarm thread:

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you. Now the smoke alarm won't block the view.

Thanks, At the moment one of my sims is furious at another, and I didn't want the Maxis fire alarm to screw up the exterior of the house, so just in case the sim leaves a flaming bag of poo outside. I'll be prepared. THANKS!!!

This is strange, but I can't find the smoke alarm in my game. I know it's invisible, but I don't think that means it should be THAT invisible. I have a recolor I downloaded quite a while ago that is there, so it's not like no recolors of any sort are showing up. It might be just me, but I haven't a clue why this particular download isn't showing up. Other invisible recolors are fine.

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.
