Smoke detector placement in residential homes
 
Where in the 2008 NEC can I find information on the placement of smoke detectors in residential homes? I have reviewed Article 760 (Fire Alarm Systems) in NEC 2008 but did not find anything. Maybe I overlooked it?

Thanks again for any and all help provided.

You will not find it in any NEC. Building codes and fire protection codes have the information.
