My smoke detectors go off for no reason... why?

I have smoke detectors in my house that are networked (if one goes off, they all go off and are connected to house power, not battery operated). They are super sensitive and sometimes go off for no reason. I have cleaned them out with pressurized air - but it still happens - ideas?

    Mine do the same thing, but do have a 9v battery in them for backups. They go off sometimes if the battery has died or if they need to be tested.

    Do you have a warranty? Maybe they are faulty. Call the manufacture number on the insdide of the detector.
