Why does my smoke detector keep chirping?
Smoke detectors are intended to make a chirping noise once the battery needs changing.
The smoke alarm must clear errors after the battery is changed, but it might continue to chirp even after you change the batteries.
This usually occurs in electrical powered smoke alarms with a battery backup.
How long will a smoke detector chirp before it dies?

Will removing battery from smoke detector stop chirping?
Removing the battery from a smoke alarm, also called a smoke detector, won’t set the unit off and start the fire alarm beeping. Instead, it will likely do the opposite and disable the unit. Because of this, there is really only one reason for you to ever remove the battery and that is to replace it with a fresh one.
