Funny you mention that.
I just went through the whole "spiel"
In the middle of the night (~1:30am)
The smoke detector next to the bedroom give off a 120db "chirp" every 50 seconds.
I grab a chair and remove the battery (because I was not about to search for a replacement at that time, half asleep and all). I lay back down and there it was again
Don't you know, my system has its own 110V connection and uses the battery only as Backup during power outage. So I took out the whole detector. The next morning the same started with the downstairs detector. And just as to make fun of me, the minute I fixed it, the CO detector started to act up. I must have been a sight foe sore eyes, staring on the device in my hand unable to understand how it still could beep
Geesh I must have grabbed some outdated batteries when I replaced them the last time.
But it was one hell of a test to see if they are able to wake you up in case of an emergency
