Installed a new Kidde smoke...
Installed a new Kidde smoke alarm Model3010H on 5/24, tested it and was OK. Today 5/25 at 2AM it sounded a loud beep-I checked everything in the home but found no problems, since then it beeps at inconsistence times-no lites or anything happens when it chirps.what could be the problem?

Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
Please provide some details on the situation.
Look at the unit and see if there is a pattern of the small LED on the unit
Is the unit beeping/chirping in any sequence? Or a constant?
Let me know and we can continue,
Thanks
