This means that any BATTERY ONLY smoke detector must be a new ten-year sealed unit.

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2019: Under NJ State Law, NO smoke detector, battery powered or electrically
hardwired, can be older than 10 years from the date of manufacture found on the back of the smoke detector. This may means that you need to replace your smoke detectors PRIOR to home inspection in order to successfully pass inspection.
