The BRK Photoelectric Sensor Smoke Alarm with Escape Light is easy to install, maintain and quality-engineered to be virtually maintenance free for years. This AC hardwired alarm not only alerts you to smoke and fire with a loud 85-decibel alarm, but also illuminates your path to safety. The 7020B is equipped with photoelectric smoke sensing technology, which detects slow burning fires that puts you at greater risks of smoke inhalation. Photoelectric technology also helps reduce the instances of nuisance alarms caused by cooking smoke or shower steam. A 9-Volt backup battery is included to help ensure your safety during power loss and can be easily installed in the side loaded battery door. This alarm is also equipped with a single test silence button to allow tests of the unit’s functionality while quieting non-threatening alarms or low battery warnings. This alarm alerts you quickly to the slow burning fires, while it lights your way to safety and will still function on backup during a power loss. The 7020B provides you the peace of mind that your family is safe from fire at all times and an excellent choice for installations in or near kitchens, family rooms or in hallways directly outside bathrooms and bedrooms. This Alarm meets UL 217 standards and listed with the California State Fire Marshal. The BRK 7020B 120 Hardwire Photoelectric Smoke Alarm with Escape Light and 9-Volt Battery Backup has a 10 year limited warranty.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Was easy to install and test. Battery placement is convenient. The only issue I have is that every so often each of the alarms will chime 3 times for no reason. It doesn't seem to be the same alarm, it is all of them. Not sure what that is about, but we're getting used to it. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase. This was purchased to replace an old wired smoke alarm in our house. Easy to install. This meets my expectations. Hard wired, battery back up, with a light that becomes activated when smoke is detected. Alarm is nice and loud also. Only negative item I could list is when I picked up the smoke alarm at my Home Depot, the cardboard box it was shipped in was opened. I thought everything was there, but when I arrived home and went to install the alarm, that's when I noticed the screws and plastic anchors were missing. No problem because I used the existing screws from my old alarm. I don't blame First Alert for the open box. All in all its nice to see a manufacturer build basically an all in one smoke alarm, in what should come as a standard for alarms. May 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced detector outside the kitchen to stop cooking false alarms - so far perfect I bought this to replace my standard combination smoke detector near the kitchen ( i think SC9120B) because cooking randomly set it off. To be fair, that model was not supposed to go there according to the manufacturer. This photoelectric sensor is the correct one to install near kitchens and outside bathrooms. Replacement of the old detector was easy - the wiring matches, just replace the mounting bracket. So far haven't had another cooking false alarm, but maybe its too early to tell. So far it passed the bacon test so i am hopeful. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice features and good price. Easy test and I like the escape light feature. Had to replace the original wiring connector with the one that came with the unit but it was an easy fix. Another nice feature, it comes with a Duracell 9V battery. Item looks nice and so far no issues. February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hardwired BRK Photoelectric Sensor Smoke Alarm w/ escape light Wanted to replace an older wired Photoelectric Smoke Alarm close to the kitchen and did not want false alarms with the Ionized. Old Smoke Alarm did not have a battery back up nor a light. The Smoke Alarm box arrived at the store opened. Did not notice the mounting screws missing from the box until later at home. Mounted the Smoke alarm no problem. I tested the Smoke Alarm and I am happy with the very 'loud alarm' and the bright light. Exactly what I wanted. Does the job. September 26, 2013
