can this alarm be a compatiable replacement for a first alert Model 9120B?

This question is from Hardwired Interconnected Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup

I currently have a first alert model 9120B which is an ionized smoke and fire alarm. I find it is very sensitive and light cooking seems to set it off and after doing some research I read how Photoelectric alams are not as super sensitive. I wanted to know if this model alarm would be a comparable replacement for the ionized alarm and second because they are interconnected do I need to replace all the alarms?

Any information you can provide would be most helpful

Answer: 
I had a similar question. By poking around on the website of BRK Electronics (makers of First Alert alarms) I found that "all current models are compatible". It's hard to tell when they replace one model with another, but I do believe that should mean the 9120B is compatible with the 7010B.

I had a similar question. By poking around on the website of BRK Electronics (makers of First Alert alarms) I found that "all current models are compatible". It's hard to tell when they replace one model with another, but I do believe that should mean the 9120B is compatible with the 7010B.
As for replacing the ionization alarm with photoelectric: While various government bodies claim that both types allow adequate time to escape, many researchers are starting to recommend photoelectric over ionization. For example, Prof. B. Don Russell (of Texas A&M) finds that both types respond reasonably well to flaming fires, but only photoelectrics respond well to smoldering fires. A majority of residential fires are the latter type. Based on my own study of other's research, I am currently replacing *ALL* of my ionization alarms with photoelectric alarms. As a hedge, I might install one ionization alarm, or a combo alarm, in a bedroom hallway well away from the kitchen. And I do plan to buy all First Alert / BRK detectors, as all 11 of my AC hardwired detecotors are signal interconnected.
Good luck, and I hope this can help someone else after spending way more time than I anticipated on replacing my broken detector! Read Less

Answer: 
Robert, interconnect means all units are connected via house wiring. So when the alarm goes off in the kitchen, it also alerts on all other smoke alarms. (You get the beep beep beep) everywhere.
Regards,
Russell.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke alarms hardwired Our alarms were almost 16 years old and 1 bit the dust so we thought we should replace them all. We used these (5 total 2 carbon 3 smoke) and so far we have not had any issues with them. They were all very easy to replace. Hopefully these will last a long time. We did need to do some searching to find information that shows which models are compatible with other models (co 2 compatible with smoke detectors). Our old ones would go off in the middle of the night for no reason (other than to wake us) so far we have not had that happen with the new set we purchased. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid replacement for outdated detector The original model detectors in my home were discontinued and unavailable for replacement, but these were actually an upgrade [photoelectric instead of ionization] for a great price. The same 3 wire system and it was easy to swap out the old connector in about 10 minutes! March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install The installer had little problem installing the smoke alarms. He read the directions, started on the first one, and then completed the other three very easily. Thank you. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely Satisfying Purchase My 3 previous First Alert smoke detectors were out of date (over 10 years old) and they were the ionizing design models which means that they would often false alarm with the by-products of kitchen cooking. I looked for direct replacements of the photoelectric variety since they are much less sensitive to kitchen cooking. I wanted a direct replacement because these units are hard wired and I didn't want to rewire the wire harness or even to replace the connector. Well, this model was just perfect because all I needed to do was replace the mounting rings on the ceiling and plug in the new units. They all tested fine and have been working flawlessly, even so as to not nuisance alarm with the cooking of steak. I was at first apprehensive because I had read previous reviews dated a few years ago that these units caused some buyers a problem with random chirping, but so far, no problem from my end. And the price can't be beat! February 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best smoke alarm in the market The First Alert product is great and easy to install, may require you install a new face plate which comes with the unit. This unit has a slide out compartment for easy installation of a battery. Do not a smoke alarm w/o this feature. Battery replacement is a big issue if you are elderly. Had to oder on line form Home Depot, Advice to HD.....Stock the part and price it below Lowes who does stock them. January 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JUNK I purchased 7- 7010B on 10/14/2015, I began to have problems with 2 of the 7 units, chirping day and night Chirp, Chirp, Chirp! 10/27/2015 I called BRK First Alert 800-323-9005. I was told to take the units out of the 10' ceiling, remove battery, discharge unit by pushing test button, using key board canned air blow out units, re install battery and plug back into ceiling. On 12/5/2015 one again began to Chirp! I called BRK First Alert again today 12/7/2015, I was advised to again take the unit out of ceiling, verify Serial Number with BRK and for $6.50 they would send me a replacement! These/ this Unit is Defective! I have done everything they asked! But I refuse to pay for a product that is less than 2 months old. BRK was aware of the units past problems, yet they FAIL to stand behind there products! Do yourself a favor, BUY ANOTHER PRODUCT! December 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy! Loud triple chirps almost every day. I too have been getting the triple beep which others mention. I have 8 of these smoke detectors. The beeps are rare, maybe once or twice a day. But it is loud, and wakes us in the middle of the night. I've replaced 4 so far after a call with BRK. Unfortunately, one of the new replacements is already bad (I've only installed one so far). It is super hard to tell which one is having the malfunction. To do this, I've only had one detecter per floor for the past few months. This is the only way I've been able to isolate the beep. I'm about to give up on BRK and toss all these in the trash. Wish I would have realized this soon enough to get a refund from Home Depot. Read the reviews on Amazon and you'll see quite a few others have this "Triple beep" malfunction within a few weeks after installing. October 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice upgrade This was purchased to replace the basic model that I wasn't able to get. I believe it's been discontinued. I find as a landlord that many tenants intentionally disable the smoke detectors that are installed for their safety. It's a mystery to me why they find it necessary but of course it's my responsibility to protect them from themselves. I certainly didn't want to rewire the base and this product was a direct fit even though it was an upgrade! Very thoughtful of the manufacturer. Based on that alone I'll continue to install their products. August 25, 2015
