Wireless smoke detector wiring

Can you power wireless SD using 12/2 wire and interconnect by just the wireless. Curious to use power for saving battery but trying to keep from running additional 12/3 just to interconnect signal.

Welcome to the forums.

I don't recommend modifying any smoke detectors..... wired or wireless. Any modifications will void any warranty and absolve the manufacturer of any responsibility.

If you're having a problem with short battery life it may be time to upgrade to newer smoke detectors that now have longer battery life.

Most wireless smokes use lithium batteries, and are good for several years of normal service...
