Response to Leith (Reply #13)

14. I went crazy one morning

I was working from home (pre-pandemic) and Dh had just left to bike to his office. The smoke detector up in one of my boys’ rooms went off. Hmmm. Ok, no fire. Hit the button on the detector, chalked it up to randomness.

15 minutes later, the one in the basement went off. Sigh. Ok, then I understood what was happening. They’re all hardwired and we put them in on the same day.

So when we replaced them that weekend, we replaced alllll of the hardwired ones in the house (which is most of them) so that when those go, they all go at once.

Except for the one in the hall outside the main floor bathroom. That one malfunctioned after a few months (the sensor on it read the humidity as smoke) so we replaced that one with a more appropriate detector.

I love those things and yet hate them all at once.
