Answer: 
Hello GadiK. Yes, you can install it as a stand alone device. When you wire it in, and it has to be hardwired, hook up the black wire to the 120 volt hot wire in the ceiling or wall and hook up the white wire to the neutral of the 120 volt circuit. Leave the red wire disconnected if you don't want the alarm to be able to set off other Kidde Hardwired Alarms. If you want to interconnect your alarms so Read More

Leave the red wire disconnected if you don't want the alarm to be able to set off other Kidde Hardwired Alarms. If you want to interconnect your alarms so that if one alarm gives an alert for smoke or for carbon monoxide then it will set off all of the others, then all of the alarms need to be on the same 3 wire circuit as it shows in the owners manual. The safest way to wire in this alarm either way is to get a licensed electrician. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Read Less

Hello GadiK. The safest way to get your alarms in is with a licensed electrician. The black wire hooks up to the hot of the 120v circuit. The white wire hooks up to the neutral of the 120 v circuit. The red wire is for communication between the alarms.

Answer: 
Hello Joe. Your older alarms are NOT compatible with any of the newer alarms and will NOT work together with the new Kidde/FireX alarms. It is very important that you take down all of the older alarms before you put up any new alarms. If you try to use the old alarms and the new alarms in the same circuit, the old alarms will damage the new alarms. The new alarms will not have the same plug or the same Read More
Hello Joe. Your older alarms are NOT compatible with any of the newer alarms and will NOT work together with the new Kidde/FireX alarms. It is very important that you take down all of the older alarms before you put up any new alarms. If you try to use the old alarms and the new alarms in the same circuit, the old alarms will damage the new alarms. The new alarms will not have the same plug or the same bracket and the wiring harness adaptors will not work with your wiring harnesses. You will have to change out all of the old wiring harnesses and mounting brackets with the new wiring harnesses and brackets that come with the new alarms. The reason is that your old alarms used AC power over the communication wires to communicate with each other. The new alarms use a DC powered signal to communicate with each other and putting AC power on the communications wires while the new alarms are up will damage them. Read Less

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?

Answer: 
I don't see a reason to do so. Typically, a dedicated circuit is done for devices high-wattage devices such as microwave ovens and the like. These detectors use very little power - they can run on batteries alone for a long period of time.

Answer: 
It's extremely advisable to use a dedicated circuit if possible. As long as you don't overload the breaker, there is no electrical reason you can't have some other device on the line, but you really don't want anything preventing the alarms from working properly in an emergency.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 180 reviewers.
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 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
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ANNOYING PIECE OF JUNK Installed 3 of the combo hardwired alarms in July 2015. One of the 3 would go off on occasion with minimal smoke from cooking. The unit now goes off on its own with no cooking, smoke etc. I checked the unit and noticed that it did not have a solid green light. I removed the unit and went to one of the other alarms that had a solid green light and plugged it in no solid green light. It is clear that the unit is defective. I regret not having read the reviews noting the poor quality of the KIDDE unit. I am buying a new unit of a different manufacturer wasted $50 on this piece of garbage. February 21, 2016
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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed after two years I purchased and installed two of these units in November 2013. One of them failed last week after a little more than two years. Since they have a 10 year warranty I emailed Kidde to see what I needed to do to get a replacement. My email has not been answered. So much for the warranty. Since I need a smoke alarm I guess I'll have to purchase one. Actually, I'll have to purchase two because they work in tandem. It won't be a Kidde. I should also mention that this is not the first experience I have had with Kidde alarms failing. Several years ago I purchased two and they failed right out of the box. I returned them and got two more that lasted 7 years. I bought the same brand again so I could use the same mounting bracket and harness. I won't do that again. February 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever!! Purchased 5 of these combo alarms in 2013 and had an electrician install them. Every thing was great for about 6 months and then the false fire alarms started. The first being at 2 in the morning! We have had them at all times of day and night every few months since. We thought we figured out which one was defective and replaced it. Today we had 2 false alarms already and had to remove one to see if it is the culprit. These alarms are driving us crazy!! You will regret it if you purchase them. February 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by False Alarms! A little over a year ago I decided to "upgrade" the alarm in our kitchen with this model. I chose it because it's a combined smoke/CO alarm--one less alarm to maintain--and uses a photoelectric detector, which "they" say is less prone to false alarms when used in the kitchen. That much is true; I had no false alarms while cooking, unlike with the ionization detector installed previously. BUT... Nine months after installing the alarm I began to get nuisance alarms in the middle of the night, at the pace of one per hour. When I realized this alarm was causing the problem, I tried changing the battery, cleaning it, etc., all to no avail. I eventually just removed it (Thanks for the useful product, Kidde). Thinking that perhaps I was unlucky and had purchased a defective unit, I bought and installed a replacement in January. After only two months, the middle-of-the-night nuisance alarms started again. I was smart enough to save the receipt this time, so I will pursue a refund through Kidde. Don't waste your time or money on this alarm. It's poorly designed, poorly made, or perhaps both.
