Smoke Alarm Goes Off for No Reason

I have 4 smoke detectors and they go off for no reason. They beep (not chirp) 2 times and then go into silent mode. Only one of them blinks green while in silent mode. Is this the offending detector? I live in apartment and maintenance doesn't work on weekends. It's a First Alert 9120B and hard wired.

Smoke alarms do have a lifespan. One of the things that happens when it gets old is that it will chirp. It is time to get new ones.

I agree with Judy, it may be time for new alarms.
You probably do not know how long they have been installed so make plans to talk to the manager of the complex and hopefully they will supply new ones.

Green is usually meaning good...so I doubt that is your offending machine. Since your landlord services aren't available, go to the source and ask for help:

Then you can tell your landlord what you were told to hopefully facilitate a quick fix.
