Answer: 
Hello IvanZ, The Hush® Feature provides the capability of temporarily desensitizing the smoke alarm circuit for up to 10 minutes. This feature is to be used only when a known alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking, activates the alarm. For hardwired or wirelessly-connected alarms, only hushing the initiating unit will silence all other interconnected alarms (see below to find the initiating unit). Read More
Hello IvanZ, The Hush® Feature provides the capability of temporarily desensitizing the smoke alarm circuit for up to 10 minutes. This feature is to be used only when a known alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking, activates the alarm. For hardwired or wirelessly-connected alarms, only hushing the initiating unit will silence all other interconnected alarms (see below to find the initiating unit). The smoke alarm is desensitized by pushing the “Test/Hush” button on the smoke alarm cover. If the smoke is not too dense, the alarm will silence immediately. The smoke alarm will automatically reset after approximately 8 minutes and sound the alarm if particles of combustion are still present. The “Hush” feature can be used repeatedly until the air has been cleared of the condition causing the alarm. Pushing the Test/Hush button on the alarm will end the hush period. Thank you for using Kidde. Read Less

False Alarms

This question is from 120-Volt Hardwired Inter Connectable Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup
Asked by

September 30, 2016
Some of the reviews on the Home Depot site and many on Amazon mention issues with frequent false alarms. My current unit went off for no apparent reason this week. The only way to stop it was to unplug it and take out the battery. Kidde support was very helpful when I called. I cleaned the unit with compressed air as suggested and that seems to have fixed the issue for now. But I planned to be away and I am concerned that this alarm will be going off constantly while I am gone. Is there a known issue with this model or was this just a fluke? My alarm KN-COPE-IC was manufactured in September 2013.

Answer: 
Hello Joe. There are 4 usual suspects for this kind of problem: Dust and pollen, spiders and insects, heat and humidity, and power surges. Dust and pollen: From the owner manual: CLEANING YOUR ALARM: YOUR ALARM SHOULD BE CLEANED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined in the beginning of this section.You can clean your alarm by using compressed air or Read More
Hello Joe. There are 4 usual suspects for this kind of problem: Dust and pollen, spiders and insects, heat and humidity, and power surges. Dust and pollen: From the owner manual: CLEANING YOUR ALARM: YOUR ALARM SHOULD BE CLEANED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined in the beginning of this section.You can clean your alarm by using compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose to blow or suck air through the openings around the perimeter of the alarm. The outside of the alarm can be wiped with a damp cloth. If cleaning does not restore the alarm to normal operation the alarm should be replaced. After cleaning, reinstall your alarm. Test your alarm by using the test button. What we would recommend for dust and pollen is to vacuum out your alarms. By that, I mean to take the hose attachment of a vacuum cleaner or a hair dryer on cold and run it around the back edges of the alarm. Dust can get into the INSIDE of the alarm and get on the sensor, setting it off, and small insects and spiders can get into the circuitry. Vacuuming it out should clear this problem out and you will want to do this to all of your alarms about once a year. Also, you will want to keep the alarm out of areas prone to dust, insects, humidity, and temperature fluctuations, such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces. Heat and humidity: You will want to make sure that none of the alarms are being exposed to steam or heat from a bathroom or kitchen. Even an alarm 5 to 10 feet away from a bathroom or kitchen can sometimes be exposed to steam or heat from cooking or a shower- sometimes the airflow just brings the heat and humidity to the alarm. This is something you will want to look into. Humidity over %85 and heat near the ceiling around 95-100 degrees can set off the alarms. Spiders and insects- there is not much you can do about this problem except for keeping the alarm out of areas prone to spiders and insects, such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces. Otherwise, the same openings that allow smoke to come in will allow spiders and insects to get into the alarm, and if they get into the alarm, they will set it off. Power surges- When the power company switches power in the middle of the night, you can get power spikes, or power surges. This will cause the power to run high for a few seconds and set off the alarms. If this is the case, then the only solution would be a surge suppressor which would regulate the power supply and keep it from going beyond a certain voltage. Also, these alarms can not be powered by solar or gas generators, as these will cause power spikes and surges which will set off the alarms. If you still get nuisance alarms, when the alarms go off, there is always one alarm going off and setting off all of the other alarms. For the smoke-only alarms, while the alarms are going off, the one going off will have a red light flashing every seconds. When they stop, the problem alarm will have a long red light every 15 seconds.On the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, they will ALL have a flashing red light while going off. The one going off and setting off all of the others will have a flashing GREEN light. After they stop, the green light on the problem alarm will only flash every 16 seconds. The next time they go off, look for the alarm that is setting off the others. Take down that alarm, and contact us at Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-678 with that alarm and a battery in hand Also: . LOCATIONS TO AVOID:• In the garage. Products of combustion are present when you start your automobile.• Less than 4” (10cm) from the peak of an “A” frame type ceiling.• In an area where the temperature may fall below 40ºF or rise above 100ºF, such as garages and unfinished attics. • In dusty areas. Dust particles may cause nuisance alarm or failure to alarm.• In very humid areas. Moisture or steam can cause nuisance alarms.• In insect-infested areas. • Smoke alarms should not be installed within 3 ft (.9m) of the following: the door to a kitchen, the door to a bathroom containing a tub or shower, forced air supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high air flow areas.• Kitchens. Normal cooking may cause nuisance alarms. If a kitchen alarm is desired, it should have an alarm silence feature or be a photoelectric type. • Near fluorescent lights. Electronic “noise” may cause nuisance alarms. • Smoke alarms are not to be used with detector guards unless the combination (alarm and guard) has been evaluated and found suitable for that purpose.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 186 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and reliable I bought the Kidde/Firex brand for my first house, same model. I have never had an issue with a defective unit. I had to remove the old harness and install the new one as the quick connect wasn't compatible. The old Kidde/Firex units are 8 years old and the connector is slightly different. I replaced 5 units in an hour or so. I replaced them because I wanted the combination smoke/CO - they weren't defective. October 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install - All 3 worked perfect right out of box My old detectors had a different wiring harness - It took all of 10 minutes per unit to rewire and complete installation. Entire project was done in less then 1 hr and all 3 levels of the house are interconnected and alarms goes off on all 3 levels when testing. Very satisfied with the purchase. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by who would've thought I would get excited about smoke alarms!! purchase the 3 pack combo smoke detector and co2 detector. I bought this because I didn't want to buy a separate smoke detector and a CO2 detector. Too much clutter on the walls. The combo did the job. Very easy to install and operate. Plug and play installation. 3 wires and you're done. I installed all 3 in my house in less than 30 mins. Looks great! Love the voice feature. It was a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Overall good purchase for a combo smoke/CO2 detector. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firex Combo Smoke/CO Detector Replaced existing Firex Smoke (only) Detector with Firex Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Combination Detector to bring home up to existing Arizona fire code. Replacement was easy as it fit the existing mounting bracket and the plug in connector for the 120 Volt supply and communication to the other 10 detectors was an exact match. August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my need. straight forward installation Three interconnected units installed in my log cabin. Installation was easy using 14-2 wire to connect to the circuit breaker. 14-3 wire between each alarm. Very easy installation. You need to purchase screws to attach the alarm to the ceiling box. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product was the solution I needed! I added on to my house and had to bring all the smoke detectors up to current code. That meant installing wire, boxes, and new detectors. Where I live I needed interconnected detectors. I was replacing dual (ion/photo) battery operated alarms which I had installed several years ago and was happy to find these that included photoelectric, carbon monoxide, voice alert, and battery backup. Single units with all those features can be expensive when installing several at once - so finding a 3-pack that saved me about 1/3 on cost helped a lot (I didn't have to settle for a lesser product). Installation of the detectors was a breaze and they've been working great. Thanks Home Depot! March 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed I had to add a carbon monoxide alarm to our upstairs area so i decided to go with this alarm. Since I was replacing this to an existing alarm area the instillation took all of 5 minutes. The big revelation was that our smoke alarms were all over 10 years old which is beyond the recommended life of smoke alarms. I decided to place a second order and replaced all the alarms in the house with the smoke detectors needed. I believe you'll only need one CO unit per floor in your house, All the other units can be the basic smoke detectors. The installation was simple and the products seem to be very good quality. It's also nice to get rid of those dingy yellow ones and replace them with these new white units. Replacing older alarms was not something I realized was necessary. Check the age of your alarms and if they're older than 10 years I'd recommend replacing with this product. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation and As-Advertised Operation Don't take chances: If any one of a group of interconnected alarm units complains of not working properly, replace all of them. The three pack saves a little money and automatically ensures that the alarm units are designed to work with one another. Very likely you'll have to replace mounting rings and wiring harnesses to accommodate the new alarm units, so be sure to check that the harnesses and rings included with the kit meet your home's requirements. Save yourself hassle by taking one of your old alarm units, its harness and ring to the store for comparison before you buy. Once you have everything connected, test exhaustively by pushing an alarm unit's test button and then running around to verify that all the others properly scream about it. Repeat this by triggering each unit. Also test operation with mains power disconnected, thus depending upon each unit's 9V battery. Yes, testing is tedious, but it could save a life. April 19, 2016
