I recently replaced a wired smoke detector with a more expensive wifi enabled smoke and carbon monoxide detector. I pulled the old one down and put it in a closet only to realize that there is a sealed Li-ion battery in the old detector, and it will begin to chirp if the device is not connected to an electrical wire. I want to keep this detector and put it back up when I move out and take my expensive one with me. Anyone know if there is a way to turn this wired detector off or stop it from chirping? The only way I got it to stop was to plug it in again for a bit. Not a long term solution.
