On battery replacement, watch the LED light. Look for a RED, RED, GREEN blink. If you see this, the device will listen for CO Test devices to be certain. NOTE detector alarm condition. When detecting both CO and smoke alarms, you may shorten battery life. Battery levels are supervised by most hubs.
