A few days ago I started hearing this noise – at least 1 smoke detector beeping every 30 seconds to indicate that the battery is running out. It is 24/7.
It’s a single sharp beep every 30 seconds, NOT the alarm sound that would occur if there was smoke.
It will not stop of it’s own accord – I heard that smoke detectors are capable of doing this for years.
I do NOT know which apartment the noise is coming from – I cannot even be 100% sure it’s coming from my building. It’s loudest when I am on my balcony. Unfortunately the direction the noise is coming from is hard to determine (and complicated by the fact that it echoes in the laneway that the balconies overlook).
I could contact the body corporate or city council… the main problem is I cannot pinpoint the location of the noise (although I am sure it is the unmistakeable sound of a residential smoke detector).
How can I proceed with a noise complaint without knowing the exact source? Let me know if anyone has any advice.
