Replacing a DC adapter (for electronic device) with in-wall wiring

What would be involved, or is this even possible? Note that I have no electrical experience.

For example, it's quite common to find a smoke detector that's connected to home wiring. Can a similar installation be used to replace a DC adapter for some other electronic device?

Thanks very much.

If this item uses an adapter plugged into the wall, then that's pretty much what you have to stick with. Not enough detail in your post to give any other reply.

But the key point there is they are designed for that purpose. It is not done with an add-on device.
