Home Smoke Detector Law

Can I install any type of detector?
As of 2019, any new or replacement smoke detector sold in New York State must be either hardwired to the home or powered by a sealed, non-removable battery with a minimum life of 10 years. Check the outside package to ensure
a testing laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Factory Mutual (FM), has approved the smoke detector and be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions before installing.
