I have replaced a whole bunch of addressable Ionization smoke detectors at one of our sites with FSP 851 (photo-electric), including electrical room and hydro vault. After couple of days, devices in hydro vault and electrical room gave me an error DET FAILED TEST. I went ahead and replaced them with brand new ones. at this point, trouble reappeared third time, now i installed addressable heat which is rated for operation of -20. 2 days later, same trouble is back and only for those two devices, now, my question, is it possible that magnetic field from transformers is screwing something up ?

Did you go into programming and change it from and (ION) to (PHOTO) ???? Or you can run an auto program to pick up the new photo heads....
Any help with Silent Knight, Firelite or Notifier. Feel free to PM me.

I did that, but still, once a day trouble comes up as a reminder.
