I live in a condo unit where many of the preinstalled smoke detectors are beeping 3 times a minute and that means they are defective and need to be replaced throughout my condo community. Some unit owners have disconnected their smoke detectors and not replaced them because it is too hard due to the hard wiring and the ceiling height. Others have just allowed the detectors to beep non-stop. So my question, it is clearly unsafe to have that many inoperable smoke detectors in multi-unit dwellings, however I have had no luck getting answers on who would be able or willing to enforce the unit owners to install working smoke detectors. Any help would be great !!!
