OP here! Made an account to follow up. First time one of mine has ever made it. Thanks for the ideas, actually. If it had been an annoy-a-tron someone was going to die. Here’s what it actually was: Too Long, Won’t Read: Several people called it. I found a defective monoxide detector dying in a dark basement corner, but only after I went insane and and fought a tiny spider with a wooden sword. Further Reasonable Explanation: Six months ago I took down a defective monoxide detector and replace

I actually took the time to read this huge novel and must say it was pretty funny! It was also very descriptive and extremely well written. Bravo.

#12 is right; if you have an open interior to your house (such as a balcony or whatever) it can be a bitch to try to locate

I had the same problem as OP last week. Dying smoke detector crying out its last pleas for a new battery. I walked through the house, checked all the detectors, replaced all the batteries, and the damn thing still kept beeping. After another hour I realized that, for whatever reason, there was a smoke detector behind the couch and it was dying. So, #3, smoke detectors are tricky things to find. Especially if your house echoes a lot or there are smoke detectors in places where they shouldn't be

I had the same issue before. I finally found it in the hallway of my appartment building. Have you tried hitting the reset button after replacing the battaries? That works for me, hope it does for you.

I know if I should be worried or relieved that my house doesn't have smoke detectors. After this FML & comments, I'm leaning towards the latter :)

That would drive me nuts. I work in retail and we have sports watches and the alarms go off if customers play with them. It's not in my section, and the other employees ignore it, but it drives me insane, so I always turn them off. I feel for you, OP.

Unplug all of them until you find the one going off. That'll at least keep you from having to recheck the ones you already looked at.
