Certainly more of a disturbance than your morning buzzer going off, most people have been in the situation of popping up in the middle of the night, looking for any potential issues and making sure everyone is safe.

And for any number of reasons, the device still seems to act up in the coming weeks. A simple solution… getting a sealed ionization smoke alarm with 10-Year Lithium Battery. Common brands like Kididie and First Alert are readily available at Lowes, Home Depot, and even online through Amazon, some cities and states now require these specialized smoke alarms. Many New Jersey towns insist in these for the mandatory fire inspection before a home sale. Professional realtors will inform sellers of this in advance to take care of as not to have delays in the process. The National Fire Protection Association recommends replacing smoke alarms every 10 years and current estimates suggest that smoke alarms are in 96% of US homes. However, it is estimated that approximately 20% of them are not function due to battery issues. This is not a problem with the 10-Year Lithium Battery Alarms. Since they are sealed, they are completely tamper proof. Further, due to the lithium battery, they are entirely capable of working for the full 10 years, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. They are available as both smoke detectors and smoke – carbon monoxide combination detectors. These batteries are also immune to power outages. Further, these smoke alarms are known as “ionization” smoke sensors meaning that they are quicker to detect smoke and fire as opposed to their predecessors. So if you’d like to avoid late night scares, annoying “chirpring” from faulty smoke detectors, it is recommended, even if you city or state does not require it, that you upgrade to the far superior 10 Year Lithium Battery Smoke Alarm Detectors for your home and your family’s safety.
