What does a flashing green light on my smoke detector signify?


Albert Smith, Expert of Electricians Service Team

A blinking green light on a smoke alarm can hold different interpretations based on the particular model. For some units, a green light flashing every 5 seconds signifies that the device is in “battery only” mode, powered by AC. When the detector senses a smoke or carbon monoxide hazard, the green light might become steady, whereas in “hush” mode, it may flash every 2 seconds. Alternatively, in other models, a flashing green light could simply denote that the detector is operating correctly and is in standard standby mode. It is essential to refer to the user manual of your specific smoke alarm model to accurately understand the meaning of the blinking or solid green light. If you encounter any concerns or require help with smoke alarm maintenance or installation, the Electricians Service Team is readily available for professional assistance.
