Why my Smoke Detector is in my Backyard

I haven't been sleeping all that well lately. Stress does that to a person. But last night, I awoke at 4:00 (a whopping hour after I went to bed) to a high pitched chirp. A minute later, I heard it again. And again. I finally managed to wake up enough to figure out it was the smoke alarm. I was so tired, however, I decided the house could burn down around me for all I cared; I wasn't going to pull myself from bed.

We have smoke detectors in every room in the house. Wood stove, oil burning boiler plus a paranoid husband means 10 working smoke detectors, plus a carbon monoxide detector. I took down the kitchen one, as it was overly sensitive. It had a temporary silince button, but started beeping even after a new battery install when nothing was cooking.
