I think it could be one of three things.
The electrician may not have installed the back-up batteries.
The electrician may not have turned the primary power to the detector circuit on when he completed the work and now the battery is depleted.
The electrician may have tied the the detectors into a switched circuit which does not apply constant primary voltage.
Hopefully you can contact the installer to troubleshoot his work.
The harness from the battery to the alternator may be damaged or the harness form the firewall to the alternator may be damaged. Check fusible links by applying a gentle but firm tension on them- if they pull apart, they have failed. The area to check closest for damage is anywhere the harness goes over a sharp corner.
If equipped with an aftermarket alarm, or aftermarket stereo system- disconnect the alarm for now, and verify the stereo or other radio is attached to a switched accesory wire. If they are on a constant power source wire, they will run a battery down fast. as fast as a day or even part of a day if quiescent current draw is great enough.

The factory alarm can be programmed on or off using the factory remote. To turn the factory alarm on or off, turn the ignition on and press the PANIC button 8-10 times in 5 seconds. Within 3 seconds press UNLOCK to turn off the alarm or LOCK to turn on the alarm.
Try using Datebook, it isn't exactly an alarm but you can program reminders and apply them daily, work days, multimple days (allowing you to choose which days you want to be reminded), weekly, day per month, or even yearly.
