Is there such a thing as a Smoke Detector that could interconnect with others wirelessly?

In other words, In a situation where it's not really mandatory Smoke Detectors are put all throughout the second floor Bedrooms and Hallway and interconnected with 14/3NM. It's not too dificult as there is attic access. It would be real nice to put 1 or more Detectors downstairs and in the Basement, but it can't be done without some cutting and patching. It would be great if there was a way to install Smoke detectors downstairs to an available circuit and have them interconnect somehow with the others.

Just a thought,

Bill

Holding up my expert ability to stray from a topic... I had asked a similar question in: https://www.electrical-contractor.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000184.html

It's a great idea, and would save my customers a great deal of money in old work situations.

Sorry, to step on your question. I didn't remember seeing it and it was only 10 days ago? I don't always have a chance to read through everything, but now that you mentioned it I do remember seeing it, but it feels like a long time ago. I gotta get more sleep.
