Answer: 
Hello IvanZ, The Hush® Feature provides the capability of temporarily desensitizing the smoke alarm circuit for up to 10 minutes. This feature is to be used only when a known alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking, activates the alarm. For hardwired or wirelessly-connected alarms, only hushing the initiating unit will silence all other interconnected alarms (see below to find the initiating unit). Read More
Hello IvanZ, The Hush® Feature provides the capability of temporarily desensitizing the smoke alarm circuit for up to 10 minutes. This feature is to be used only when a known alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking, activates the alarm. For hardwired or wirelessly-connected alarms, only hushing the initiating unit will silence all other interconnected alarms (see below to find the initiating unit). The smoke alarm is desensitized by pushing the “Test/Hush” button on the smoke alarm cover. If the smoke is not too dense, the alarm will silence immediately. The smoke alarm will automatically reset after approximately 8 minutes and sound the alarm if particles of combustion are still present. The “Hush” feature can be used repeatedly until the air has been cleared of the condition causing the alarm. Pushing the Test/Hush button on the alarm will end the hush period.

False Alarms

This question is from 120-Volt Hardwired Inter Connectable Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
September 30, 2016
Some of the reviews on the Home Depot site and many on Amazon mention issues with frequent false alarms. My current unit went off for no apparent reason this week. The only way to stop it was to unplug it and take out the battery. Kidde support was very helpful when I called. I cleaned the unit with compressed air as suggested and that seems to have fixed the issue for now. But I planned to be away and I am concerned that this alarm will be going off constantly while I am gone. Is there a known issue with this model or was this just a fluke? My alarm KN-COPE-IC was manufactured in September 2013.

Answer: 
Hello Joe. There are 4 usual suspects for this kind of problem: Dust and pollen, spiders and insects, heat and humidity, and power surges. Dust and pollen: From the owner manual: CLEANING YOUR ALARM: YOUR ALARM SHOULD BE CLEANED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined in the beginning of this section.You can clean your alarm by using compressed air or Read More
Hello Joe. There are 4 usual suspects for this kind of problem: Dust and pollen, spiders and insects, heat and humidity, and power surges. Dust and pollen: From the owner manual: CLEANING YOUR ALARM: YOUR ALARM SHOULD BE CLEANED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined in the beginning of this section.You can clean your alarm by using compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose to blow or suck air through the openings around the perimeter of the alarm. The outside of the alarm can be wiped with a damp cloth. If cleaning does not restore the alarm to normal operation the alarm should be replaced. After cleaning, reinstall your alarm. Test your alarm by using the test button. What we would recommend for dust and pollen is to vacuum out your alarms. By that, I mean to take the hose attachment of a vacuum cleaner or a hair dryer on cold and run it around the back edges of the alarm. Dust can get into the INSIDE of the alarm and get on the sensor, setting it off, and small insects and spiders can get into the circuitry. Vacuuming it out should clear this problem out and you will want to do this to all of your alarms about once a year. Also, you will want to keep the alarm out of areas prone to dust, insects, humidity, and temperature fluctuations, such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces. Heat and humidity: You will want to make sure that none of the alarms are being exposed to steam or heat from a bathroom or kitchen. Even an alarm 5 to 10 feet away from a bathroom or kitchen can sometimes be exposed to steam or heat from cooking or a shower- sometimes the airflow just brings the heat and humidity to the alarm. This is something you will want to look into. Humidity over %85 and heat near the ceiling around 95-100 degrees can set off the alarms. Spiders and insects- there is not much you can do about this problem except for keeping the alarm out of areas prone to spiders and insects, such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces. Otherwise, the same openings that allow smoke to come in will allow spiders and insects to get into the alarm, and if they get into the alarm, they will set it off. Power surges- When the power company switches power in the middle of the night, you can get power spikes, or power surges. This will cause the power to run high for a few seconds and set off the alarms. If this is the case, then the only solution would be a surge suppressor which would regulate the power supply and keep it from going beyond a certain voltage. Also, these alarms can not be powered by solar or gas generators, as these will cause power spikes and surges which will set off the alarms. If you still get nuisance alarms, when the alarms go off, there is always one alarm going off and setting off all of the other alarms. For the smoke-only alarms, while the alarms are going off, the one going off will have a red light flashing every seconds. When they stop, the problem alarm will have a long red light every 15 seconds.On the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, they will ALL have a flashing red light while going off. The one going off and setting off all of the others will have a flashing GREEN light. After they stop, the green light on the problem alarm will only flash every 16 seconds. The next time they go off, look for the alarm that is setting off the others. Take down that alarm, and contact us at Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-678 with that alarm and a battery in hand Also: . LOCATIONS TO AVOID:• In the garage. Products of combustion are present when you start your automobile.• Less than 4” (10cm) from the peak of an “A” frame type ceiling.• In an area where the temperature may fall below 40ºF or rise above 100ºF, such as garages and unfinished attics. • In dusty areas. Dust particles may cause nuisance alarm or failure to alarm.• In very humid areas. Moisture or steam can cause nuisance alarms.• In insect-infested areas. • Smoke alarms should not be installed within 3 ft (.9m) of the following: the door to a kitchen, the door to a bathroom containing a tub or shower, forced air supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high air flow areas.• Kitchens. Normal cooking may cause nuisance alarms. If a kitchen alarm is desired, it should have an alarm silence feature or be a photoelectric type. • Near fluorescent lights. Electronic “noise” may cause nuisance alarms. • Smoke alarms are not to be used with detector guards unless the combination (alarm and guard) has been evaluated and found suitable for that purpose.

Answer: 
Hello Joe. There is no functional difference between the KN-COPE-I and the KN-COPE-IC. The KN-COPE-IC came out to replace the KN-COPE-I and is the later model but some places online will still say KN-COPE-I though what they sell is the KN-COPE-IC. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 186 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Useless in power outage In the event of a power outage the detectors go off continueous, beeping and and verbal warning until you take the batteries out. Contacted the manufacture by website email and they said that is normal. Look for something else, October 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Replacement for Old Wired Smoke Detectors Replaced 30 year old hardwired smoke detectors. The box came with a base plate, a detector and a wiring harness with a plug on the end. All I had to do was untwist the old wire nuts, remove the wires to the old plug, match up the wires for the new plug and retwist the wire nuts. I unscrewed the old base plate from the wiring box, put in the new base plate and screwed it in. I connected the new plug to the back of the unit, push it up in place and rotated until it clicked in place. The whole process took less than 5 minutes and was relatively easy. The included battery was dead, causing a slow chirping sound. I replaced it with a new battery. The battery holder is easy to access on the outside of the unit. However, it is tricky to pry open the clip holding the battery in. The clip is quite stiff. I found it impossible to hold open the clip with my fingers. I ended up using a screwdriver to pry it open. Not a good design, particularly for something that needs periodic replacement. I would have given it 5 stars had the included battery been working and had I been able to press the battery clip down with my fingers. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacing outdated smoke detectors compatible with current wiring setup and unit does not have to be taken down to change the battery. Also, replaces the carbon monoxide units. Recommended to my neighbors August 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke and carbon monoxide alarm This product was recommended by the Fire and Safety company we use for our Artist Loft's, it was easy to install and seems to be functioning well. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy To Wire I have 4 hardwired smoke alarms in my home that needed to be replaced from old age and the lack of a battery backup. I had no idea what to expect from the original wiring, wiring harness, mounting hardware or operation of the new alarms. I did expect another trip to the store would be involved somewhere. To my surprise I was able to replace all 4 alarms with new combination alarms, rewire the harnesses and finish installation in less than an hour. Operations test was a surprise also, first a voice announcing type of alarm fire or CO2, then unique high decibel alarm for each, all 4 alarms sound the alert. I am very happy with this purchase. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great combo unit I bought 3 of these to replace 3 ancient interconnected BRK units that did smoke detection only and had to be from the 1980s. I also bought adapters so that I could reuse the existing wiring harnesses. It was a pretty straightforward install. I love now having CO detection in addition to smoke, plus the voice feature, plus the battery backup - all new for me. I had 1 false alarm 2 nights after the installation, but I believe it was due to an improperly seated connector/adapter. After addressing this, it's been at least a month and it hasn't happened again, which is good since I went with this brand because of all of the false-alarm complaints of other brands. April 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smoke and CO alarm The instructions were complete and easy to follow.The wiring harness made the installation easy. I really needed a CO detector in a particular area of my home and this served both as the CO detector and a smoke alarm. April 26, 2016
