Smoke Detector’s throughout your house are 120 volt with battery back-up. Smoke detectors maybe located on each floor, and one in each bedroom.
Troubleshooting Your Smoke Detectors:
Normal Operation No Sound/Green Light:
Smoke Detector’s should be tested and cleaned monthly, clean by blowing out the sensor with a hair dryer on the cool setting or a leaf blower. Dust, spider webs, or other small particles can build up on the sensors.
Chirping/Red Light Flashing Once Per Minute:
Battery may need changed. Change batteries twice a year. ( A good time to change batteries is when you change clocks for daylight savings).
3 Beeps/3 Beeps Repeating on Alarms/Red Light Flashing on One:
Smoked Detector is Activated!
