Likewise, people ask, why is my hard wired smoke detector beeping?

Most hard-wired smoke detectors include a 9-volt backup battery that's supposed to kick in if your home loses electricity. If that battery is running low, your detector alerts you with a high-pitched beep. Remove the old battery and replace it with a new one. Press the “test” button and listen for a beep.

Subsequently, question is, how do you fix a beeping smoke detector? 1. Reset the Smoke Detector

  1. Turn off the power to the smoke detector at your circuit breaker.
  2. Remove the detector from its mounting bracket and unplug the power supply.
  3. Remove the battery from the smoke detector (if there is a battery).
  4. With the battery removed, press and hold the test button for 15 to 20 seconds.

Keeping this in view, how do I stop my smoke detector from beeping Australia?

Turn off the power to the smoke alarm at the circuit breaker. Remove the smoke alarm from the mounting bracket and disconnect the power. Remove the battery. Press and hold the test button for at least 15 seconds.
