JerseyJohn .,

There is a simple answer with your multifamily unit all the smoke detectors must be interconnected there is no extempts once you remodel the place.

If you have any doubts just stop by the fire station or inspector offices they will give you the hard facts with it.

I know in State of Wisconsin have pretty strict code with multifamily units and all smoke alarm must be interconnected after X number percentage of remodel or new construction the exsting building it will varies and the inspectors will have final call on this one.

Ditto with the codes in France.

By the way did the inspector check the rough in wiring they should able spot the junction box for smoke alarm with interconnecting conductor.

cool , im all set. thanks for the info guys and i will check with the inspectors office but im sure its all good. when we bought the house we got a giant list of neccesary repairs and in the list was a smoke alarm placement diagram wich we followed. btw, i tripped across a wireless interconnected fire alarm that kidde makes that was pretty cool. i ran the wires already so i wont be using them but if i needed to put another one in later i could go with that system. oh and in jersey pimp is slang for nice and i dont do electrical work for other jobs i would just sub it out being as im a licensed contractor and thats how i roll.

When you check with the inspector, be careful because in my area (and likeley most other) doing electrical work on a multi family is illegal unless your an electrician.
