My electrician says that I’m required by code to have line-powered smoke detectors. Hence, all the smoke detectors in my house have line voltage (120V), but there are no extra wires going there or conduit through which I could pull signal wires.
Is there any good solution to hook up smoke detectors to my IQ Panel 2 alarm system? My ideal product would be a line-powered smoke detector that also acts as a 319.5MHz sensor, or failing that maybe as a Z-wave device. However, it seems like all of the “smart” smoke alarms are battery powered. I suppose some kind of small AC adapter that can fit it the battery compartment of a battery-powered smoke detector might also do the trick.
Surely I must not be the first person to run into this problem. Does anyone have products to recommend? Thanks.
