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?

This question is from Hardwire Wireless Inter-Connectable 120-Volt Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup
Asked by
St Pete FL

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

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install I had 7 interconnected wireless smoke detectors in my house and I wanted to add another one in the garage. It was easy to interconnect and install. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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! March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation AC wired smoke detector was fairly easy to install; wirelessly interconnected with 4 battery powered. When tested, detector sounded alarm as did the others. One product I hope I never have to 'use'. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good unit! Got this to replace a similar unit that mysteriously disappeared. (Darn kids). Set the dip switches for the network, put In a battery, hook up power, Done! July 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiddie does it right! 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. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Smoke Alaqrm These smoke alarms are dual sensor and detect both fast burning and slow burning (smoldering) fires and so are well worth the price for such great protection. April 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works with Hardwired and wireless smoke alarms Got this smoke alarm to interconnect to a battery smoke alarm that was not hard wired in it connected to the battery smoke alarm and with my existing hardwired smoke alarms easy to install January 20, 2015
