Hey all, I have 10 of these Smoke & CO2 detectors on my network and I had an oddity with battery % last night on one unit. I've noted flakyness in the battery accuracy before on these but I wanted to document it this time around.
Last night my wife asked me to go downstairs and check on the smoke/co2 detector in the laundry/mechanical room, she said it was chirping like it was out of battery, but she hadn't received any notifications on her phone that something was wrong (buy in!).
I pulled up a list of devices and noted that all smoke/co2 detector batteries were well above half, and that the one in question was at 77% and had batteries just a month or so old.
I went down and pulled it, and sure enough, chirp chirp. Here is the full event log, showing the fresh batteries on 3/6 and the slow decay:
(The detector was beeping at 77%, I replaced and tested at at that point)
These were generic energizer batteries, not lithium but very fresh date wise, should I be using different batteries? Perhaps these droop too much for the detector despite showing higher voltage.
Any thoughts are welcome.
