New NYS Law
Requires Smoke Detector Upgrades by
April 1, 2019

All smoke detectors sold in New York State

AFTER April 1, 2019, are required to be powered by a 10-year, sealed,

non-removable battery, or hardwired to the home



Breakdown of the new smoke alarm requirements for homes

Effective April 1, 2019, a new NY State law requires all NEW or REPLACEMENT smoke detectors in New York State 

to be powered by a 10-year, sealed, non-removable battery, or hardwired to the home.

According to NYS Law 399-ccc: "It shall be unlawful for any person or entity to distribute, sell, offer for sale, or import any battery operated smoke detecting alarm device powered by a replaceable or removable battery not capable of powering such device for a minimum of ten years."

Homeowners and landlords must upgrade their smoke detectors before selling or renting homes and apartments in New York State.

While these 10-year smoke detectors have a larger upfront cost than traditional alarms powered by replaceable batteries (approximately $20 per unit) the lack of yearly battery changes makes them cheaper over the life of the device.

As with ALL smoke detectors, the Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Company recommends that the 10-year sealed smoke alarms still be tested at least twice each year using the button on the front of the unit to ensure they are working properly.
