Product Overview

The Kidde Hardwire Inter-connectable Ionization Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup makes it easy to expand the protective coverage of your current interconnected system. A single 9-Volt battery is all it takes to provide backup protection to you, your family and your home or business in the event of a power outage. The alarm uses wireless technology via a radio frequency to both transmit and receive messages about the presence of invisible fire particles, so when 1 smoke alarm sounds others also become activated.

  • Contains a ionization-sensor to detect invisible fire particles
  • Creates a wireless interconnected system
  • Radio frequency communicates with battery operated wireless units
  • When one alarm sounds, all link units sound
  • Compatible with Kidde 0919-9999/RF FM DC
  • Smart touch hush button silences a low-battery chirp for up to 12 hours
  • Smart touch push and hold button to test the operation of the alarm and interconnected system
  • 9-Volt battery backup

Answer: 
The alarm has a setting that you choose, it's a physical PIN system and you sequence the pins in each detector the same way (up or down) and then they all share a frequency set by that sequence

Answer: 
The wireless alarms talk to each other without wires. If you want to talk between wireless and non-wireless alarms, you'll need to hard wire one wireless unit to one hard wired alarm. Then any alarm will set off all the alarms.

Can this be used with existing hardwired interconnected system?

August 20, 2015
I have a job where there are three interconnected hard wired smoke detectors. Fire inspector wants another one in a room that would be almost impossible to get the interconnecting wire to. Could I replace one of the existing detectors with one of these and then add another one in the new location, so that the wireless detectors will operate with the existing hardwired interconnected detectors?

Answer: 
This is a warning to others. According to the Kidde company support these will NOT work with an exiting system unless all the rest of the detectors are compatible Kidde brand detectors. That means you would be forced to replace all of the existing detectors on the system. I think that stinks, since the interconnect wire is just basically a switch it should be able to trigger any other detector regardless Read More

Answer: 
I read the manual for the hardwired unit, and it says you cannot use more than one of the hardwired wireless interconnected units (model RF-SM-ACDC) in a system. You can use one of them with many of the battery powered units. See Kidde website, and you can not only see the specs, but you can download and read the manuals.

No. Kid does not appear to have any wirelessly connected CO detectors or photoelectric smoke detectors. They only have wireless ionization smoke detectors RF-SM-DC that will work with the 120 volt model RF-SM-ACDC. We have one 120 volt unit working with a set of three battery powered ones.

Hardwire Wireless Inter-Connectable 120-Volt Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement units, easy to,order and install This unitneed to be replaced every 10 years. Therefore when my old unit started to "chirp" I ordered the exact replacement and have it in a few days. It can with the battery for battery backup. It simply plugged into my existing base and we're all set. I was happy to see that Home Depot carried the replacement units, even though the original unit was 10 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardwired wireless smoke alarm Purchased this to link to three additional battery-powered smoke alarms, and they all work together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only Interconnects with the same Model What is the point of Kidde having a wireless standard if multiple Kidde wireless products don't communicate. I have several Kidde Model 21010625 wireless interconnected alarms and they do not communicate with this product. Both are sometimes sold side-by-side at the Home Depot, so make sure you understand this little detail before purchase. And as a message for Kidde...fix this! This would be so ease to fix with hopefully just a firmware update. Get on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy upgrade I have hardwired alarms throughout the house. Imagine my surprise when a downstairs smoke detector misfired and went off in the middle of the night, and my teenagers SLEPT RIGHT THROUGH IT. Their bedrooms were the closest to that alarm and it didn't even wake them. So I replaced my detectors with these wireless interconnected alarms. Now when one goes off they all go off. The sound is deafening, but I felt like that's what I needed for safety.

These work great for up dateing older homes hard wire one in witch is the master and one wireless model for every room that runs on a battry one goes of they all do. But read the nistruction carfully on testing and operation due to setting the cummunication codes. The reason for this is explaind in the insructions.
