My fire alarm is making a funny noise.

It keeps making this funny beeping noise. It is not the actual alarm. Could my batteries be dying in it or could it mean something else?

  • the chirping means the battery is going dead....the more dead it gets the more often it will chirp. annoying..they should be changed every 6 months.

  • I agree with calliesmommie. I just replaced the batteries on mine because of the annoying chirping and I havent heard it since. Either way it cant hurt to change them right?

  • Most likely just the batteries. That's what mine do when they need changing. It drives the dog nuts!
