Changing Battery in Smoke Detector?

I have realized that if one battery in the set of 4 electric detectors is not functional the whole system goes off. This happened last night at 3:30 in the morning. It's really awful to try and change these when the alarm is screaming in your ear. How can I tell which one is the faulty one? I also would like to know how to turn them all off so I can at least change them in peace. The main electrical box does not list them, so I've not idea which breaker to flip off.

Turn off all the electric with your main switch. Your batteries should be changed twice a year. If you are in the USA, those times are when the time changes in the spring and fall. If you are not in the USA, those dates are Jan 1 and July 1

I change my batteries when daylight savings time begins and ends.
