Check your smoke detectors when you change the clocks

Why is it that the low battery alarm on your smoke detector seems to go off at the most inopportune time? Chirps or beeps in the middle of the night or during a big meeting can be annoying. There is a simple way to minimize this disruption.

Check the batteries in your smoke detectors at the same time every year.

If you live in an area that observes Daylight Saving Time (DST)
You “gain” an hour when it is time to set your clocks back to standard time so change the batteries in your smoke detectors when you change your clocks.

If you live where DST is not observed, choose Halloween or an easy-to-remember anniversary
Numerous countries—as well as individual states and territories within countries that do mark DST—keep standard time instead of changing to Daylight Saving Time. You don’t gain an hour but you can put your time to good use. Check your smoke detectors and their batteries.
