E-Scott, there reasoning is.. heck I dont know what there reasoning is. I never really questioned it. I was mistaken, they dont require the smokes to be interconnected, just 110 with batt. back-up, and they will work with you some. But, I have been known to survey the poco drop, and if it is sufficient, buy a few polarus lugs and just do it myself.

When I inspect a job, I just inspect what the electrical contractor is doing. That is all. If I see other violations, I tell the homeowner that they should get it fixed, but I can't force anyone into fixing it. As an elec. cont. I use to put right on my bills, that I saw a violation (or fire hazard) and let the homeowner know that it should be fixed. This way if something should happened later on, I could respond with, "Well I made a note of the violation on my bill. You must have read the bill because you paid me." This way the homeowner couldn't say, "Well you never told me that I had a problem!" It helps to cover your butt this way.
