Question: What is a typical amperage of a home smoke detector and a home duplex outlet.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Edward.
A typical construction project will require a smoke detector in each bedroom and on the ceiling or wall at a point centrally located in the area giving access to bedrooms such as hallways. Mount smoke detectors at least 4″ from wall or on the wall with the top of the detector within 4″ and 12″ of the highest point of the ceiling. In multi-story units there shall be a detector at each level and shall be placed at the center of the ceiling 24″ or more higher than the hall are required to have a smoke detector on the hall ceiling and in the bedroom. In new construction when more than one smoke detector is required to be installed within an individual dwelling, the detectors shall be interconnected by installing the electrical wiring in such a manner that the actuation of one alarm will activate all of the alarms in the dwelling.
