In the NEC 1999 & 2002, for a 3-family house, do we need one smoke detector in each dwelling bedroom? If YES, what about the NYC Building Code? Have they omit this out from the NEC Code?

rknikko,

Smoke detector requirements are found in the Building Codes, not the NEC. I don't know what NYC requirements are.

NYC also references NFPA 72 for a lot of the same requirements as other areas of the country.

I didn't respond to this because I know nothing about NY codes, but as per the IBC it would be required in each bedroom and outside of each bedroom.
