Coyote designed'em. He must have. He was whispering in the ear of the person who decided that, when the battery in one of the damned things ran low, it would make a single, brief "PEEP!" every few minutes -- and then sit silent, so you couldn't figure out which one needed attention unless you sat around starting at each one.

Of course, when you press the "check" button, all of them make exactly the same sound no matter what the condition their battery.
