I have a "remote control smoke detector" - a smoke alarm that states that you can use your TV remote control to silence or test this alarm - that will not operate. What should I do?

If a "remote control smoke detector" does not respond to your remote control, there may be an obstruction between you and the detector. You may be standing too far away, or your remote control may not be compatible. Also, the batteries in your remote control may be drained. Try a different angle or replace the batteries in your remote.
