In CT they require Smoke & Carbon Monoxide detectors. Makes perfect sense except in those instances where it makes no sense, like when there's no Gas running & there is no Garage.

The paperwork for a new buyer to sign that says you will put in if there is not already one is in place. That slip of parchment gets signed at the sit down to pass the keys, slide the check please. But no one comes around to police to see if the buyer did install a smoke / co detector.
