Smoke Detector False Positives (Nuisance Alarms) and Arc-Fault Circuit Breakers

I have grown weary of being jolted out of bed for no reason by a false alarm. It never happened before we installed the newer, hard-wired-battery-backup smoke detectors that are all connected to each other.

The answer, I hope: apparently arc-fault circuit breakers cause wired smoke detectors to give false positives, and some electricians take those breakers out after inspection (at least on the circuit that is dedicated to the smokes).

I have now replaced the AFCI breaker with a "normal" breaker on the smoke detector circuit.

I posted my question/experiment here: http://ask.metafilter.com/309940/Smoke-Detector-False-Positives-Nuisance-Alarms#inline-4482147

I'll report back in a year.

See Photo Attachments from ArcGIS Collector in ArcMap

Identify Tool. Then there is a small pull-down thing in the top of the Identify Window that you may not notice at first that says "Attachments" and has a picture of a paper clip next to it.

Remove Him from Office

The president of the United States is clearly unfit for the job, and demonstrably not mentally well. Many have said this ever since the election began, and were dismissed as being blinded by partisanship. Politicians who refuse to acknowledge this and remove him from office are doing a grave disservice to the nation and the world, simply for the sake of protecting their own power.
