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

This question is from Hardwired Interconnected Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup

March 6, 2016
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

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AOK nothing out of the norm for a smoke detector. nothing to distinguish it August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect for my house the smoke alarm was very easy to install for a 60+ female DIYer August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FAST SERVICE I had hoped the First Alert jacks from my old detectors would fit this model but they didn't, neither did the mounting bracket. However, it was easy to attach the new mounting brackets on the original screws and rewire the 110 power to the new jacks. Hopefully, I am now good for another 10 years!! They arrived in a couple business days. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke detector The smoke detector is perfect. Home Depot experts helped me pick out the appropriate replacement for a broken one in our home. The size and operation is great; and the installation was simple. June 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good replacement if you already have them and need to replace them The builder installed these so we need to replace them--have had to replace most of them over the last 10 y ears--some earlier than expected. But they are easy to install and work okay--unless bugs crawl in, then everything gets set off. May 25, 2016
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 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 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
