Smoke Detectors Beeping?

My smoke detectors are electronically wired. They beep-chirp for about two hours each day and then stop. I have changed all of the batteries and have vacuumed them. Help!

Smoke alarms store error codes. If the beeping continues, and you have a wired in system with battery back-up: 1. turn off the main circuit to the smoke alarm 2. remove the detachable part of the alarm 3. remove the battery 3. with the battery OUT of its compartment, hold down the TEST button for about 15-20 secs 4. reinstall the battery, or replace it with a new one if the original is dodgy 5. reattach the alarm with battery in place to the base. 6 Turn on mains power. It will work again without chirping ('cos you have reset the error code for chirping [usually 'cos of low-bat]).
