Smoke Detector Went Wrong
[ Thursday September 5th 2019 at 12:30 am ]

One of my smoke detectors has gone wrong. I don't think I am over them going off in August 2018 (in what turned out to be a side effect of my hot water tank bursting) or a few months ago (in what turned out to be my computer network router power arcing on the inside). I need a break from hearing their annoying noise. However what happened this time was different.

It chirped instead of a full blown alarm. There was a power surge due to the above ground wiring where I live. I expect this damaged the sensitive circuitry. It is 12:30 a.m. I can't deal with this tonight. I'll head to the hardware store tomorrow to buy a replacement and then have a friend come install it for me. I am sure I am able to get this done by Friday morning at the latest so I am only without a smoke detector in my basement for 1 day.
