As of April 1, 2019, all new or replacement smoke detectors in New York State must be powered by a ten-year, sealed, non-removable battery or hardwired to the home.  The new law does not require all smoke detectors to be in compliance, just ones that are being installed for the first time or replaced on or after April 1.
