Smoke alarms are not likely to last much over 10 years and most authorities including the NFPA recommend replacing them at 10 years. While changing my batteries, I realized that mine are 10 now.

I did a little research to find detectors that are code compliant (in case I want to sell later) and that include carbon monoxide detection.
