Check the terminal voltage of the charger, if its equal to the voltage the batteries are suppose to be then you probably need new batteries.

Two fire/smoke sectors occasionally beeping - no battery inside - connected to NetworX 1448E security system. We have changed the large battery in security - still beeping


If the units are more than 5 to 7 years old they have reached the end of life cycle and need to be replace. Smoke detector typically are only good for 5 to 10 years.

If the power was out for 5 hours and the control panel still shows 'low battery', it's probably time to replace the battery for the control panel. However, this shouldn't keep the alarm panel from arming up. I would first try to re-start the control panel by removing the power and battery connection for a few seconds and plugging it back in. After that, it would be a good idea to re-enroll all of your attached sensors, etc. by entering into programming mode and exiting. Press * 8 + {go code} then just press exit. The default 'go' code is 9713. After about 15 seconds, the panel will have auto-enrolled each attached device. Try arming and disarming the panel. Be careful of setting off the alarm, as your monitoring station may dispatch police, etc. in the event of alarm. This is why having a certified alarm installer do this work is a good idea, as they can put your account with the monitoring station on 'test' so alarm signals are recorded for testing purposes but are not acted upon.

Golding93, you could very well have elevated levels of CO in your home. You should leave your house immediately and call the fire department. However, if your CO alarm is 7 years old, it could also be the alarm's end-of-life warning. Regardless, you should definitely call the fire department to have everything checked out. If you need additional assistance with your CO alarm, please call our customer service line at 1-800-880-6788. Thanks for being a Kidde customer. We appreciate your business!

Alarm beeps every 5 mins. I have changed battery and problem still persists.


Tell me what brand your alarm is and I can help you with the beeping. Usually if you hit # it will silence the beeping for 24 hours. Something you can try is finding your main control box. Its usually located in the garage or in a closet. It is tan and 6 x6. First disconnect the battery inside the control box by jiggling off the black/red leeds. Then unplug the power supply. Wait five minutes. Reconnect the battery and plug in the control box. This is completely powering your system down and then repowering it up-essentially "re booting." If this does not correct the issue, give me the brand and I can further help you.

1. Change batteries.
2. Clean it.
3. Swap it with another location if you can.

If it still does not work properly consult the local fire dept. for free.

You may have to take it in repairs if all fails.
