What causes our ADT panel to beep every 30 seconds?

Also, last night all of our smoke alarms were sounding for 40 minutes with no smoke or emergency. Fire department ended up disconnecting all of them and taking out batteries. Actually they dismantled all, but 2 because the alarms stopped when they disconnected one of them. Is this related to the security panel that is beeping every 30 seconds?

I am looking for smoke detector for my motel due to covering the old ones with plastic bags. i was wondering if i would have the same problem with a smoke detector with a pulsing led sensing chamber?

for the correct smoke alarms to use , go talk with your fire brigade officer or fire department
there are 2 types that use batteries and in some countries with an accommodation type of business the alarms have to be hard wired to a central alarm system that automatically calls the fire station

My 10 year battery smoke alarm has been sounding every 10 minutes. It is one month old and there's no fire. What's wrong?

Hi Mary Ann:
I'd start by changing the battery and see what happens.
If it still sounds every 10 minutes then either it is defective or there is something in the area where it is located that is setting it off.
Is it a combination CO2 as well as smoke?
Possible safety hazard.
Last option is to take it back to where you purchased it for exchange.
Hope this helps.

System is old need a replacement I can't seem to open, is there a battery replacement or a replacement alarm available

to open fire alarms twist the case to the left and it comes apart
consider this
if the alarm is old , it has been superseded with a better model that works on a different principle to smelling the air to detect smoke
Discuss the advantages of installing the new and different version with any fire prevention company or your local fire department
IN many instances a combination of both ensures protection of the people in the house

Wire together fire alarms

If you wire fire alarms together you may not have the coverage you should have. If you have a fire alarm in one part of a house and put another one hooked to it then if a fire puts the power out in that part of the house then you have no protection in the other part if it's on the same circuit. There has to be a different circuit for each alarm.

Had customer with CO detector sounding quick double chirp about every five minutes. What is this?

This is not a beeping smoke detector. It is probably a CO detector that was installed by your alarm company. GE model 240-COE will give a double beep every 5.5 minutes when the device reaches end of life. Call your alarm company to have it replaced.

Alarm went off but no smoke was found and no other smells were detected. I do not believe that there was CO present. All the units were activated. after a period of time they stopped. This occurred 3 times... Remember that smoke take presidence over C/O detection so notice whats going off first . LED Indicator Operation
The red LED will flash as described below under the following
--During smoke or CO alarm, with every beep
--During testing (same as alarm)
--Low battery, single flash with chirp
--End of product life, double flash every 30 seconds with chirp
--Unit error mode, single flash with chirp
--Unit error mode, a Fault Code is flashed every 30 seconds (can
be observed and reported to customer service for
troubleshooting. Above is the user guide.

My smoke alarms which are also hardwired into the electrical system, are going off for no reason every 5 minutes

Your smoke alarms may be hard-wired and also have a battery backup. If this is the case, the batteries may need to be changed. If there is no battery issue, then it may be that the alarms have aged out and simply need to be replaced. Regards, Joe
