If you are able to get hold of a human being at the security check section of your departure airport then you should ask them - in the UK (major airports) this is, to the best of my knowledge, impossible unless you go there in person and go up to the entrance - even then you are unlikely to succeed in having a conversation with anyone who is sufficiently authoritative. Spanish customs will almost certainly totally uninterested in your smoke detector and they don't decide whether you can take it aboard the aircraft. Your airline is the best bet - any radioactive component will be minuscule but you are not likely to chance upon anybody who understands that and ignores the box-ticking.
