Smoke Alarm Beeping

My smoke alarm was beeping, so I replaced the battery. However, it still beeped. I reached out to to SimpliSafe to see if it could be replaced, but I haven't heard anything back yet. Thoughts?

Hi there,

When you look at the Smoke Detector, do you see a constant yellow light? That means that the Tamper Switch in the back isn't being held down by the mounting bracket. You just want to twist clockwise until the unit locks into place, and the light should disappear. The warning chirps should stop as well!

Thanks. I'll give that a look.

Why does my SimpliSafe smoke detector only work with a Panasonic brand 3 volt lithium battery? These batteries are not always easy to find as opposed to other brands.

@gborto757​ The Smoke Detector was designed to work with the Panasonic battery. However, taking a quick Google search, I was able to find the Panasonic CR-123A Lithium 3-volt battery on retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target.

my smoke detectors beep constantly. When I hit the "reset" button in the middle they stop for a while, but jus start up again. It's insane. Changing the battery doesn't help! It's driving me crazy - help!!
