HOW OFTEN DO THESE DEVISES HAVE TO BE CHANGED

Asked by: BIGBOB
According to the manual (the PDF is available above) they warranty these detectors for 7 years. Kiddie does sell other combination smoke/CO detectors that they warranty for 10 years (model KN-COSM-IBA). There are some other differences in addition to the warranty period. The KN-COSM-IBA are ionization smoke detectors (where these are photoelectric) and use 2 AA batteries for backup where these use 9V.

What does it mean that it's "Inter Connectable?"

Can I install it as a standalone?
Asked by: GadiK
This, and most hardwired smoke detectors, have the ability to be interconnected so that when one alarm goes off, they all sound off. 3-wire is required between the alarms for this. They may also be wired standalone.

Where do the wires connect to?

The picture shows 3 wires, white, black, and red. Are the white/black connect to the house grid's white/black? What to do with the red wire?
Asked by: GadiK
The red wire is for the interconnect feature - when one alarms goes off, they all go off. This requires that they were wired with 3-wire. If there is no red wire in the house wiring when you go to replace the detector, just leave it capped off as it came.

is dedicated circuit for series of alarms needed?

finishing basement and using these detectors, when wiring these in a series so they all go off when one goes off, can I use an existing lighting circuit (assuming enough capacity) or is it usually advisable to run a dedicated circuit?
Asked by: Danilo1
We used to typically wire them on their own circuit, but most jurisdictions nowadays require them to be powered from a lighting circuit, so that if they should go off as a nuisance, you won't be tempted to just turn the breaker off and leave it off.

Had no luck getting any kind of refund from Kidde for the recall, they just offered me a 50% off coupon at an online store, this is not Home Depots problem but It would be nice if Home Depot carried more brands than just Kidde as I wanted a different brand. Hope this one does not get recalled as well.

I also wanted to add carbon monoxide detection to both my upstairs and my basement. These combination detectors did accomplished both with a simple swap of the older unit with the new. I had to swap out the connectors since the pin configuration was different on the newer unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope I never need to use this purchase I used this alarm as a replacement for a smoke detector that renovator should have installed with CO monitor on two basement levels. Installation was easy because of prior wiring. Originally seemed to be a problem with a smoke detector in a bedroom only connecting with this new smoke detector/CO monitor on same level and not to smoke detectors on other levels of house. Telephone call to Kiddie support suggested that I had not pushed the test button long enough, 10 seconds, and when I did that it showed that all smoke detectors/CO monitors and smoke detectors on three levels and in four bedrooms would alarm from an incident at one monitor. As header says, I hope I never need this purchase for its intended use.

Last night at 3 AM the power outage from heavy rain then the Smoke&CO alarms go off and make a loud noise. Only way to shut off the alarm is to pop open the battery door or reset alarm. This is really annoying me. I have to find a ladder in the dark in a power outage to turn it off. I can't imagine if this happen during I'm on vacation. who is going to turn it off?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in time I was looking into replacing my old smoke detectors around my house at a later date when one of the units started beeping. I replaced the batteries but the beeping continued. Came across the kiddie carbon monoxide and smoke detection unit. I love it it talks and beeps when senses fault.

Replaced 9 year old units from a different manufacturer that were giving false alarms. After removing the mounting plate and wiring plugs for the old units these wired right in and installed easily. So long as you respect electricity and turn the power off this is an easy project for the DIYer. So far so good after a few weeks. No false alarms! The fact that it talks and tells you what the alarm is instead of trying to interpret lights and beeps, especially when the issue is a backup battery going out. The battery access is nice on this one as well. Opens easily by pushing on it and the batter is held in lightly with a clip. My previous units came out the side of the detector and did not do so easily.
