Yep, those are now required "health and safety" building code. I recently finished my basement myself and decided to pull permits for the project. They required smoke detectors on every floor, in every bedroom, and outside the bedrooms, even though I was only pulling permits for my basement.

Needless to say, trying to get a wire from the basement through the first floor, through the second floor, and into the attic of an old house was one of the most frustrating adventures of my life. But now that it is done, I do feel a good bit safer than just having one smoke detector quite far from the bedrooms. Also, for just a few extra bucks you can get combo carbon monoxide/fire detectors.
