Smoke detectors?

Should anything else be on the whole house smoke detector circuit? My builder has an attic outlet and receptacle wired to the same circuit.

Smoke detectors?

Our inspector won't allow that...don't know if it's code or not. Call your inspection office if you have one, they'll be happy to provide you the details.

Smoke detectors?

This was just discussed yesterday:
NEC code and Smoke Detectors
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.
