Smoke detector

I have the original system.  Yesterday my smoke alarm activated there, was no detectable smoke in the house (got call promptly), my wife and I do not smoke and we were not cooking.  After trying to silence the alarm to no avail I replaced the battery that quieted the alarm and reinstalled it. Today we now notice a yellow light is on which was not on before except when it alarmed yesterday.  .

The yellow light MAY indicate that you did not fully seat the detector on it's base.  You have to go "past" a click to get the bump on the base to press the tamper switch on the back of the detector.
