Hard Wired Smoke Detectors? What Year Required?

When was it a standard to have hard wired smoke detectors? Or is this something that is state by state?

Hard Wired Smoke Detectors? What Year Required?

State by state, and this is a building code issue, not electrical code.

Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
