Dust cover protects sensor from contaminates during construction reducing nuisance alarms.

Does the new alarm come with an adaptor to use my old firex wiring or do I have to re-wire the new one?

Asked by: Joe
I am not familiar with firex but as far as homes built after 1993, rewiring is not needed for this smoke alarm.

I have four KIDDE i12060 smoke detectors.

Only one chirps and I've tried everything the book says to do to get it to stop but to no avail. Can I just replace the one that chirps or must I replace all four. Thanks in advance. Jack in Texas
Asked by: JackinTexas
I had the same problem and I replaced only the one that chirped. That did the trick.

Hardwired 120-Volt Inter-Connectable Ionization Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup i12060 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 290.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Multiple 10 year Kidde alarms multiple false alarms and complete product failure Have bought several from Home Depot. Returned almost all for breaking within the first year. Now trying to figure out how to get yet another one fixed after another failure. Would never buy Kidde again. Too unreliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Just disabled our second one built in April 2015. The first went off when our son was 9 months old in his room causing me to freak out since he was asleep in, there for the night. No smoke,no fire,no alarm saying the battery was dying,and couldn't be shut off. These units were purchased and installed at the same time,I'm happy to see them gone

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever I had just finished taking a shower when the alarm went off. It was a false alarm as there was no fire anywhere in my home to be found. I had to get on a chair and reach to the ceiling to try to turn it off but the "Push to Hush" button (stupid name for a button) was not shutting it off. The alarm is super loud; I would guess 120+ dB SPL. It kept beeping for a couple of minutes so I took it down from the ceiling and placed it under a sofa cushion. I didn't have time for this as I had to get ready to go to work. Tonight I returned home and sat on my sofa. I felt something hard underneath me and I head a beep. I had forgot all about the alarm! I took it out and exposed it to the air thinking it was fixed. I was about to put it back in its place on the ceiling when the alarm started going off again. Again, it was a false alarm as clearly my house was still intact and fire-free. I struggled at least 10 minutes with it trying to turn it off. I had to open up the unit while the entire time the beeps did not stop. I am an electrical engineer and luckily I knew what to look for. I located the switch on the circuit board and finally turned off the alarm. I just realized that you could do the same thing by taking a screwdriver to it on the backside (under the sticker). I hope I did not incur permanent hearing damage. P.S. The unit has only been in use for a few months; under one year for sure.

The time came to replace our old smoke detectors as they had reached their expiration date. We switched out from a poor quality brand (not worth mentioning the name) and replaced all of our smoke detectors with the Kidde FireX smoke detectors. Our detectors are inter-connected, so we needed to go with the inter-connectable model. Installation was very straight forward. First we turned the breaker off for the smoke detectors then went to each room and removed the old unit. Once removed, we attached the new mounting plate to the screws in the junction box and secured it in place. Next came the wiring. Since our smoke alarms are inter-connected, we had to use the red wire as well. The wiring was very straight forward: black to black, white to white, and red to red after removing the small plastic cap on the red wire on the smoke alarm. Once everything was wired, we attached the smoke alarm to the mounting plate. Since these smoke alarms have the front loading 9 volt battery, we should not have to detach the smoke alarm from the mounting plate. This is a great design feature, because the more you handle the unit, the more chances you have of dust and particles from getting inside of it and causing it to malfunction. If you never have to remove the unit to replace the battery (like in the old models where the battery access was in the back), you greatly reduce the risk of your units going bad early. Hopefully, we won't have to remove these smoke detectors until they need to be replaced in 10 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate replacing the batteries - not really as easy as sliding in front door The i2060 product installs pretty easily. I have had it for two battery changes - guessing that means 3 years or so, cannot remember exactly. I HATE HATE HATE when I have to replace the batteries. I got the front door option so I didn't have to pull the thing down. I have ceilings that are over 12 feet tall. But when I simply replace the battery it still beeps. Only when I turn off the breaker, pull the thing down, disconnect it and then put it all back together does it shut up. This stupid alarm drives me mad. I would replace the thing except I'm out of town right now and having to talk someone else through this nightmare.
