Try installing all new batteries. Latest installs have the individual units also hard wired to each other so that when one goes off the others are triggered. When a battery is weak in unit it often causes the main unit to chirp along with some of the others in sympathy. If still no improvement and all batteries are brand new, then either get new units or disconnect the hard wiring between all units.
They will still work but without the nasty global feature.

I changed the smoke detectors with brand new ones but it is still chirping. Even if I turn the power off through the circuit breaker and remove the battery it still chirps every 40 seconds.

That can't be are your sure that is the detector that is making the noise .
No power the device can't operate .It chirps to let you know the battery is low even if it is hard wired.
The only thing I can think of that might make it do that is you didn't get the correct breaker and the connection that plugs into the back of the unit is damaged wires or pins are exposed and shorting .Seeing you changed the unit with a new one the chances of both units having the same problem are slim to none.
Check the connector you have to squeeze the sides its a bit tricky to unplug

What causes continual beeping

With some smoke detectors, this indicates a low battery. Try putting in a new battery and see whether it stops beeping. If it doesn't add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your smoke detector.

I have four of these smoke detectors in my home. They are all hooked together. Yesterday I put new batteries in all four and now they will not stop cherping. After about 8 hours I took the new batteries...

Three small chirps in one minute intervals means that the unit is needing service. The ion chamber in that unit has a fixed life span and when it expires, that is how it tells you. It is time to replace it. They usually last about 10 years.

Kiddie fire alarm model I12060, beeps once every

This happened to me, my smoke detector started chipping so I changed the batteries. A few seconds later it started chirping again. The answer is in the way you put the batteries in. The smoke detector allows you to put the batteries in wrong and makes a slight connector. This slight connector tricks the detector into thinking the batteries are weak. Simply turn the batteries around so the fat connector of the battery touches the skinny connector of the device. Mine was, fat side on the right.
