Similarly, you may ask, why is my smoke detector blinking red every 10 seconds?
If the smoke is not too dense, the alarm will silence immediately and the red LED blinks every 10 seconds. This indicates that the alarm is in a temporarily desensitized condition. The smoke alarm will automatically reset after approximately 10 minutes and sound the alarm if particles of combustion are still present.

Press the “Test,” “Silence” or “Hush” button to reset the smoke detector if it has a blinking red light. Press "*72" (star, seven, two) to reset a smoke detector on an alarm system with a keypad.
