It was beeping every 15 seconds or so. I pulled unit off ceiling and checked batteries. Reinstalled. No more beeping. Do I need to replace batteries?

The beeping means that the detector was sensing low voltage from the battery. If the battery is over a year old, most manufacturers recommend yearly replacement on smoke detector batteries.

My 521NCSXT smoke sector beeps periodically. What is required to repair?

When a smoke detector beeps periodically it is telling you that it needs a new battery. They require the newest 'alkaline' 9 volt battery that you can get. If it is not alkaline you will get the beeps. once the battery is replaced do a hard reset. (pressing the button for 10 or more seconds)

How do I change a battery

Grab the detector by the top and twist counter clockwise, then puu away from base. There will be a 9 volt battery you can pull out and change. If it is wired for electric, make sure wires are connected before installation. Line up slots with holes where it came off from and twist clockwise to re-attach.

GE/ADT DIY system will not accept master code./beeps twice/2 hour

Press the system status button on the top right and the system should announce the error message that is keeping it from accepting the code.
