I have a few questions about smoke detecters. My house has the interconnected type, but will not set each other off. Each work by themselves, all have power to them. How does the yellow wire tie all of the alarms together? Should it have voltage to it?

Yes they should all alarm together but before you go crazy tracing wires make sure you hold the test button in for at least 5 seconds sometimes the other smokes will alarm a couple seconds after the one being tested.Also the yellow wire dosnt have power till it is alarmed then it send out the signal to the other smokes.good luck
