Why do smoke alarms always start chirping for low batteries at 3am?


The silence button didn't work, I couldn't open it to remove the low battery, so I put it in a suitcase full of clothes in the bathroom and closed the door. I could still hear it. I closed my bedroom door and now I can't. It's been an hour though and now I can't sleep.

@shortcake wouldn't it be easier to take the battery out? it's not going to be detecting much smoke stuffed in a suitcase anyway.

@lyliawisteria like I said I couldn't get it open. I'm not worried about it as I have 2 others in the house.
