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.

Answer: 
The chirping happens for 2 reasons. The first is the battery needs to be replaced and second is that the detector is at the end of its useful life. Check the date of manufacture of each detector. If it is more than 5 years old the detector needs to be replaced. In my system when one of the detectors had a low battery or was at the end of its useful life, all of the detectors chirped because they act as a Read More
The chirping happens for 2 reasons. The first is the battery needs to be replaced and second is that the detector is at the end of its useful life. Check the date of manufacture of each detector. If it is more than 5 years old the detector needs to be replaced. In my system when one of the detectors had a low battery or was at the end of its useful life, all of the detectors chirped because they act as a system. The problem I had was determining which detector needed a new battery or needed to be replaced. If you disconnect the detectors from the system one at a time until the chirping stops,that should give you a clue as to the problem detector(s). Removing the battery will not stop the chirping. You have to remove the detector completely from the system by unplugging it.
It is best to replace the batteries in all of the detectors or replace all detectors all at the same time. I make a point of writing the date the battery was replaced or new detector was installed for future reference. I believe that batteries are supposed to be changed every 6 months as a routine.

Answer: 
Had exactly the same problem. I tried replacing one and problem persisted. So i ended up replacing all three with complete resolution of the annoying chirp especially in the middle of the night.

My fire alarm is chirping. I thought that it was because we have a higher humidity and temperatures. I even thought that it had ceased chirping for a few days. What is wrong?

Answer: 
Check the date of manufacture on the back of the smoke detector. If the detector is 5 years past that date, you will need to replace the detector. The only other reason the detector will chirp is because the battery needs to be replaced. The chirping is an alarm telling you the smoke detector is not functioning properly. For more information, Google "chirping smoke detector ".

Answer: 
I recommend that you try changing the battery into a new fresh one. If it does not stop chirping consider the age of the equipment. More than 10 years probably needed a change. Goodluck !!!

Michigan code requires that your home have at least 1 hardwired unit in the basement that can communicate with additional battery operated units throughout the house. I need to know if this unit will do that and if so, which battery operated Firex units do I need to purchase in addition to this one?

Answer: 
I have to disagree with Florate. You said battery operated additional units. These are two different types of units and NOT inter connectable. This FireX model 21006376 is a hardwired unit ( with Battery BACKUP) which hooks up to a 120v line and has a third (red) wire which goes to other compatible units. It cannot communicate with one which has a battery as it's sole source of power. It has to hook up Read More
I have to disagree with Florate. You said battery operated additional units. These are two different types of units and NOT inter connectable. This FireX model 21006376 is a hardwired unit ( with Battery BACKUP) which hooks up to a 120v line and has a third (red) wire which goes to other compatible units. It cannot communicate with one which has a battery as it's sole source of power. It has to hook up to other ones operating on 120v line whether they have a battery BACKUP or not. You might check further into Michigan code as to whether a wireless unit meets the requirements. Check out Home Depot's KIDDIE wireless alarm Model # RF-SM-ACDC. You would have to buy all the same units, and they are more expensive, but if your home does not have that extra wire it might be cheaper. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 139 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced 9 year old i12060s I replaced existing rings and detectors that turned yellow/brown. They are supposed to last 10 years, but I figured it was worth doing it now and it looks 100% better (wife loves it). Original installer had only one screw on a couple of the rings, so I added those while I was at it. I had one ring fall off because of this changing the battery in the old units, so lazy contractors, please put in both screws. You can use the old plugs as long as they are the same model, but a lot of the detectors I looked at used this 3 prong plug. I like the battery door on the i12060 since some of them require you to remove the detector to replace the battery. Here's to another 8/9 years! Took about 45 minutes to replace 5 rings/detectors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent product This product was easy to install and use. Also like the way that it works. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kidde Smoke Detector I can only assume it works considering that it would require a fire to really test.(a bad thought). This unit replaced one out of the six in the house that went bad prematurely ( 5 years into a 10 year warranty). It just didn't pay to cash in as I would have had to pay the return shipping to the manufacturer on a $12 dollar item. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke Alarm Haven't hooked them up yet, but I'm sure they will be fine July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by replacements for old units. Replaced two 11 year old models. Easy enough to do, base gives lots of options for screw placements so I didn't have to make any changes with screws. Just put up new bases and the old three point power connector fit perfectly to the new units. Will be much easier to replace batteries now. July 5, 2016
