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

I ordered these because I live on the Gulf Coast, and the builder-grade smoke alarms I had went off when I had my windows open in the spring and fall when it was very humid, which is most of the time. I love to have my windows open, but it just wasn't acceptable to have all my alarms go off when windows were open overnight. Since my son installed these new alarms, I have not had so much as a chirp, and my windows have been open day and night for about a week. I would definitely recommend this product if humidity is a concern, even if open windows aren't your humidity problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my house the smoke alarm was very easy to install for a 60+ female DIYer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Bought this photoelectric detector to replace an ionization model in our kitchen. The ionization type was causing lots of false alarms from toasters, ovens, stove usage, etc. Replaced a BRK branded model (parent company to FirstAlert). Hardwired connectors were identical and it interoperates with the other BRKs in our home. New detector's mounting ring was different than existing detector, though. After one and a half months in kitchen, not a single false alarm from burnt toast or dirty oven. Works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardwired BRK (First Alert) smoke detector system is very good. Works well while powered from utility and when under battery operation, communicates with other detectors very well in both powered modes. loud and very recognizable. Each unit comes with its own: mount plate, pigtail connector, temp dust cover, set of lithium AA batteries from Duracel and installation instruction in many languages. You provide the hard wiring, 15 amp circuit breaker, mounting screws and the boxes. These can be mounted on ceiling or wall. I installed each and tested in under battery power only starting with unit furthest from the panel. After all were installed but not yet util power'd I tested each in reverse order (last install to first install). Then I connected the circuit breaker and retested each unit again in order from util to last and back again. Then powered down the circuit and retested again. To make sure everything functioned properly. Then did a small smoke test to make sure each did its job.Covered with temp dust covers while rest of construction was completed. (Note we have a backup generator and this circuit line was put on the backed up power side of the generator system.)
