We have a wired smoke alarm system. We've lived here 9 years and I have no idea if they work or not, so I installed battery-operated ones in pretty much every room.
One day the wired one upstairs was going off for no reason. It didn't even sound normal - it sounded like it was going out. So I pulled it off and detached it from the clip.
I want to find a cap to put over it to plug the hole but I'm wondering what to do with the wires. The orange/red wire is just hanging and the white and black wires are attached to the clip that went into the alarm.
