Replacing hardwired smoke detector
Looking for some advise as I am looking to replace my fire alarm that is hardwired into the ceiling with a battery supported one.
There does not appear to be any wires harness and the old smoke detector is directly connected with the wires out the ceiling with wire nuts.
The only way that I can disconnect the old smoke detector seems to be disconnecting the wires through the wire nuts.
Once I have disconnected the wire nut, what do I do with the wire? Have I ventured into a need to hire an electrician?
