Hi, for most of my smoke detectors in my home, I change the battery every six months. For the 4 I have in my home for my account, I assume I should similarly change as often.
First, Is changing them every six months the proper procedure? Or is it sufficient to wait for the Simon XT to warn me that the battery is low?
Second, if it is time to change the battery, what is the procedure? Do I contact the monitoring center to warn them so changing the battery does not set off the alarm at the central station, or is there a way to change the battery without setting off the alarm at the central monitoring station? Thanks.
