Smoke/CO2 Alarms have New Requirements in California

10 year compliant Smoke alarm

     California Senate Bill 745 now requires the following:
     SMOKE DETECTOR Battery(1) Commencing July 1, 2014, all smoke alarms including combination smoke alarms, that are solely battery powered shall contain a non-replaceable, non-removable battery that is capable of powering the smoke alarm for at least 10 years.
     We hear these new non-replaceable smoke detectors are a little tricky to install – but no more replacing batteries! Once our old inventory of “old” smoke detectors are gone, they’ll be gone forever.
