Illinois Smoke Detector Law Has Changed

Beginning January 1st, 2023, any new smoke alarm that is installed in a single or multi-family home will be required to have a 10-year sealed battery.

Smoke alarms that were installed in single or multi-family homes prior to January 1st may remain in place until they exceed 10 years of being manufactured or until they malfunction.

Exemptions to the law include homes built after 1988 that already have hardwired smoke alarms and homes with wireless integrated alarms that use low-power radio frequency communications, Wi-Fi or other Wireless Local Area Networking capability.
