    So, I have lost count of how many nights I am up looking for whatever it is that is beeping. Last night was no exception.

    The list of possibilities:

    3 cordless phones
    1 cell phone
    Dryer

    Washer
    Refrigerator
    Medication pump
    Smoke detector

    Whatever gadget has a battery dying.


    Grrr.......

    I make sure to turn off the ice maker before going to bed.

    I don't use an ice maker. One flooded a previous house and I swore I'd never have another. I even had the water line to the fridge taken out.

    Smoke detector is new. Had the security company put it in as it calls the fire department when smoke is detected.

    Last night, it was one of my cordless phones. Grrr....

    I vote for smoke detector too.

    That sucker is so sneaky.....beeping away.....if you have more than one you can't tell which one.....and they never seem to beep when you're staring at them. :evil:

    I bet it's anything but the smoke detector....

    I could be an old digital watch with a timer on it lost somewhere...... I had that problem one time and then I destroyed the watch out of anger...

    In this day in age the majority of things beep....

    A battery can last a smoke detector 5-7 years...

    I've never had a smoke detector battery last 5 years. I know they can last a few years but I change mine every time daylight savings time switches off and on. Her new SD is probably wired to the house panel and needs no batteries.
