To test a smoke detector battery:
Remove the smoke detector cover, typically by carefully pulling down on the case's perimeter or by twisting the case counterclockwise.
Locate and test the battery voltage with a multimeter. The battery can be tested in-place or removed from the smoke detector. As needed, replace it with a new battery.
Read the owner's manual for additional troubleshooting tips and possible adjustments.
