    Unless your switch is connected to the fire alarm or a fire alarm device, I'd say your inspector is over-reaching. If not and it needs to be listed, the manufacturer would say so and, more than...

    My question is always "Is there more than one path for current to flow?".

    Give the door a push with your shoulder to see if you can recreate the problem "on demand". If this is a new building, the HVAC people probably haven't balanced their system. See if "Push before...

    Make sure it's actually the smokes that are beeping. I found, washing machines, dryers, microwaves, alarm keypads and a UPS beeping and the smokes getting the blame. :rant:

    IMFOTP has a very good point.

    Without the swivel, something has to bend, break or otherwise move out of position. With the swivel, it's often just the camera that gets trashed; a quicker repair. At least that was my experience.
