I am looking for a device that will listen for a smoke alarm to go off. Answered

All it needs to do is have an indicator that trips when the alarm goes off.  I replace smoke detectors that give faulse alarms but I am never there to hear them.  There are two sounds they make, one is a chirp (low Battery) and a full alarm very loud.?

These days smoke alarms are signal connected such that when one alarm goes off they all alarm.

You mean monitor remotely? How far away, how much are you willing to spend on this, Have you tried contacting the alarm manufacturer to see if they offer a remote monitored system.

there are a number of alarm systems that have the capability to make a phone call when set off for example.
