Question about Home Security
I don't have the manual so I loosened the unit from the wall to look at the back panel. It is hard wired with a battery back-up. The "plug in" part doesn't pull straight out--the edges fit into tiny slots on the side and there is a little flap that fits over the top part of the battery chamber. I can't get the battery out without getting the plug out of the way. I tried pulling the plug and sliding it up to disengage it, but no luck. The beeping is driving me crazy. Help!
these units will get dusty after awhile and unsually with either a vacuum or air in a can blower, you can clean the sensor inside, are you having any power blips?
worse case is just replace them

Ours keeps chirping even after we replaced the battery. I'm not sure how to fix it.
We are going to try and clean it but if it keeps doing it after that then I guess it means it needs to be replaced, right?

SOURCE: one beep constantly
Most new smoke detectors work off of two power sources, electric and battery backup. The battery is used to power the detector if primary electrical AC power is lost. It would be a good idea to replace all detector batteries every two years or so. You'll access the battery by opening the unit, find out the type used and then purchase a replacement at your local store. Hope this helps.
