For me, I'm the exact opposite. If my detector starts beeping, I'll replace the batteries first before doing anything else. That might be the death of me one day. I also bought detectors that say "Fire" or "carbon monoxide" instead of just beeping, so I actually know when the detector's actually trying to save my life.

Actually you do have a way of knowing. The beeping is the indication the batteries need replacing. When a detector goes off it makes a consistent sound or alarm. This is actually required by law and international code. This is for this exact situation, to know that you have to change batteries or know you have to get out quick. At least OP didn't just ignore or remove the batteries to silence the alarm. They now know what the battery low alarm sounds like and can respond appropriately in the future.
