Smoke detector requirements in NYS
The local Rochester NY paper reported the following today: Effective in April 2019 NYS will require 10 year life, sealed battery smoke detectors, or hardwiring. This will be for all new construction, and sales of existing homes. The type SimpliSafe just sold to me with batteries will apparently not be available at all in NYS. I doubt if SimpliSafe will even be able to sell them in NYS, or supply replacements when they fail.
I am new to the Forum and SimpliSafe, but hope they monitor this Forum and will respond with their plans to support us in NYS.
I believe this law has been on the books since 2015, but enforcement was delayed to let current suppliers work off their inventory. So, I would imagine that this is not new to SimpliSafe.
What say you SimpliSafe?
