Beeping Smoke Detector

Question: My smoke alarm beeps at regular intervals. Is it broken?

Answer: All of the battery operated smoke detectors (alarms) that I am aware of have a circuit designed into them to advise you when the battery has reached a low charge level. This ensures that the smoke detector battery does not go dead without the homeowner being aware.


I would also suggest that you purchase quality batteries, your life and that of your families may depend on the smoke detector working. Saving a few cents on batteries really makes little sense!
