You'll want to check your smoke alarms due to a safety recall. 

About 452,000 Kidde dual-sensor smoke alarms were recalled because they may have an impaired ability to detect smoke. 

According to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, posing a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire in their home.

If there is a yellow cap in the smoke alarm, consumers can get a free replacement smoke alarm by calling 833-551-7739.
