I think I solved the problem

I was trying to answer my too-smart-for-my-own-good phone and instead of answering my phone called someone whom I had exchanged text messages with earlier. After chatting a bit I remembered that he had mentioned he did some electrical work so I asked him about the problem. He told me that he had heard that it was important to change all the backup batteries in a system at the same time. I put new batteries in all 3 smoke detectors and reconnected the ones I had removed. After a few hours I still had not had any of the alarms go off. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else runs into this problem. It doesn't make much sense to me but if it works....
