Temporarily disabling a hard-wired smoke detector
We are in the process of finishing our basement and need to temporarily disable the hardwired smoke detectors. We need to remove them while having drywall put up, and also want them disconnected while sanding the drywall as we were told the drywall dust can set them off.
Is it possible to disable two of them in our basement and not have them set off the rest of the ones in the house? Would we just pull them down and cap the wires until the drywall is done?
