There are actually lots of laws about what you can put in your mouth. They’re called food handling certificates and licenses for restaurants. Also called Public Health endorsement. Licenses of grocery stores. Rules about what can be in prepared food. Lots of laws. Look it up.

Is it not advised to replace a hardwired smoke detector with a battery operated one? I live in a condo.

Is there law about how many times I need to chew before swallowing, yet?

Actually, after reading about it in a previous thread, I checked with my insurance company (Westland Insurance). If you change out a hardwired detector with a battery powered unit, you're going against BC building codes which state that buildings must be built with hardwired detectors after a certain date. My buildings were built in 1996 and after. According to my insurance company, in the event of a loss, this will void your coverage! I was shocked, but went out and replaced the new lithium battery detectors which I had just installed.

That's very informative. Thank you so much. I'll look for a hardwired one instead.

Some people will readily buy beer and cigarettes but a 9V battery is too expensive...
If you have a ten year battery that people can't tamper with, you might save lives.
Do you also think that seat belts are a micro management of people's lives?
Well the thing is, it says that the smoke detectors are the removable kind lol, so nothing prevents someone from removing and tossing it out if there are too many false positives from the likes of ionization detectors in the kitchen or nearby bathroom...
You can also turn it off PERMANENTLY, eg on a Kidde, you have to break through the label in the back, so unless you install tamper proof ones.

Also, I've read many reviews of faulty lithium ion battery where the smoke alarm quits working after a year or two with no warning, I'll much rather have to replace the battery every 6-12 months and test at the same time because really, no one test theirs every month.

A few days later (in the middle of the night) our entire house was filled with smoke & neither detector went off. Took them both down, they looked very dated inside & obviously didn't work. Don't take the risk If in doubt, buy new ones. Test the ones you have with smoke as opposed to pressing the test button. We replaced everything with hardwired smoke/CO with battery backup, alarm/voice command. We also bought a fire extinguisher. Yes, it was expensive for worth it. Learn from our mistake.
Ionization smoke alarm best detects flash fire, not smouldering fire, it can take 15mins before they start chirping which could be too late, that's why you also want photoelectric or dual sensor ones.

Interesting, these use AA batteries. I'll check if my local HH will honour the price tomorrow. I need 2 hardwired combo units.

Kidde Hardwire Combination Smoke Detector with CO. Battery backup. Voice command. Interconnectable. I did research and tried to find the best one that I could to suit our needs but I am by no means an expert. I appreciate the comments that are trying to educate us further. Smoke and fire are terrifying. Thankfully we found the source before any damage was done. I agree with the other person who said when you move into a new place, don't rely on the previous owner.
