Smoke detector on light circuit...???
We're re-doing our basement and don't know much about electrical at all.... we ran a string of pot-lights, and have a hardwired smoke detector in the circuit as well. We were thrilled when we got them all installed, flipped the switch, and everything turned on..... until we realized that our smoke detector is only on when the light switch is on.
What have we done wrong? How do we fix it? (Unfortunately, drywall is done as well, and re-wiring the whole thing is going to be a pain... is there an easy fix?).... the smoke detector is in the middle of the circuit, is this the problem??
Thanks for any help.
