I have interconnected smoke alarms. One started beeping. So I replaced batteries in all alarms. Still beeping. So I bought new alarms, replaced hardwired harnesses that came with alarms and all new batteries. Still beeping. All are showing green lights. I have hit test/reset buttons and still have beeping. Help!!

You don’t have a carbon monoxide detector somewhere as well do you. Had this before and the customer had forgotten about it. it was the battery in this.

I got told that you should not interconnect smoke/heat with C/O.
 
Read instructions carefully .
I have one that intermittently bleeps ,to
tell you you pressed the button to "Park it in a Less sensitive state " Needs a press to get back to normal sensitivity .
(This state the Nagging goes on)
( Some models have 10 yr batteries .. confusing to look at -No battery hatch )
..can be upset by high humidity -
(take outside for fresh air-if detachable)
...My last "GUESS" there is an Error in the interconnect ..! Current Instructions /essential.

If ruling out all battery and connection problems doesn't sort it,get a vaccuum cleaner and suck all the crap out

If it’s the new aico series smoke alarms that’s beeping then you’ve got a fault they have a lithium battery built in although you just said you replaced battery so you’ve got the old model get rid and upgrade to the new ones mate all the old ones are now getting replaced in my area bit pricey but 10x better most councils are going for the new models

And make sure the smoke alarms are fed from lighting circuit and not on individual circuit as most customers will turn off mcb and get hammer to all the old smokes with replaceable batteries not safe at all I always incorporate smoke alarms on upstairs lights to prevent customer turning off they save lives
