Bigfoot Posted January 1, 2008 Share Posted January 1, 2008 Hi all, anyone know anything about smoke detectors.We got home last night and had all of our detectors screaming at us (about 10 of them). NO, there was no fire.I shut the breaker off and they still screamed. I finally found one with a red light and pulled the battery and got them all to shut off. God that was annoying.Anyway, I replaced the battery and it all seemed fine until 0930 again this morning when they all started screaming again. Red light on again on that detector and still no fire or smoke or anything to make them go off.Apparently they are somehow wired together in some sort of detection grid that makes them all go off when one does.I just replaced all batteries about 6 months ago.My question is do these things go bad like this and if so, what happens if I cannot find the exact brand or model replacement to swap it out? Will this affect how the grid works?Thanks,Sean Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
