building code for smoke detector replacement
Just purchased my new complete system to replace 20+ year old ADT and am waiting for 5 smoke detectors to be shipped (backlogged) to replace my existing Kidde units. I just learned that NY state (along with a number of other states) modified building code a few years ago to require replacement smoke detectors to be either hard wired or with sealed 10-year non replaceable batteries. Obviously SS (or any other DIY system) doesn't meet this requirement. SS claims they weren't familiar with this requirement and doesn't have a response for how homeowners can monitor their homes for fire if they are a SS customer.
This can't be an isolated issue - how are others addressing this once they've moved to SS?
