Smoke Detector Keeps Beeping

Our electronic smoke detectors are going off during the night hours. This has happened last night 3 times. It is a warning beep because of a low battery. Does anybody know anything about this?

Is your smoke detector also a carbon monoxide detector? I know with our smoke detectors the beep for a low battery is different than a beep for an alarm. My mother-in-law had a man come out for her stove and he said she had a severe gas leak, but nobody could smell it, but him, so it might be that and you just can't smell it.

If the batteries are new(er), then it could be that the smoke alarm itself needs to be replaced.

Yes, beeping means you have a low battery that needs to be replaced.

Sometimes it needs vacuumed. If there are fresh batteries even fire department will tell you vacuum even if it appears clean inside.
