Product Overview

The Kidde i12060 is an AC/DC powered, ionization smoke alarm that operates on a 120V power source with 9V battery backup. This alarm uses ionization sensing technology. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. The front load battery operation speeds installation and reduces battery replacement time and effort by eliminating the need to remove the alarm from the ceiling. Alarm is packaged with two universal adapters that allow easy installation when replacing other branded smoke alarm.

  • Front door battery provides easy access which reduces the installation time and battery replacement time
  • Smart interconnect feature
  • Battery pull tab prevents draining battery until permanent AC power is connected - reduces callback's for battery replacement
  • Dust cover provided protects sensors during construction
  • Ionization sensor with nominal sensitivity of 0.50 to 1.06% ft. and temperature operating range is between 40°F and 100°F and unit includes a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 dB at 10 ft.
  • 9-Volt battery back up (21025830)
  • Piezoelectric horn is rated at 85 dB at 10 ft.

Customer Questions & Answers

The alarm keeps chirping. I hit the reset button and it will stop and then start again a few hours later.

It's hooked up to the electrical so the battery can't be dead. Any ideas?
Asked by: Tonya
seems to be a design flaw. The battery space is too large and doesn't allow tight fit of the battery so the unit thinks it is weak

I have Model 1275 Kiddie smoke alarms in my home and they are 10 years old. Will this model work to replace mine?

Asked by: ct1980
Hello CT1980. The alarm that replaces the 1275 is the i12040A or the P12040. However, all Kidde hardwired alarms are compatible with all other Kidde hardwired alarms, and all Kidde hardwired alarms use the same wiring harness. If you used an alarm of a different model, the only thing you would have to change is the plastic mounting bracket. The I12040A, the P12040, and the I12080A all have the same mounting bracket as the 1275. The new alarms do come with a wiring harness that is slightly different than the wiring harness of the much older models from before 2004 and is made to be easier to take out of the back of the alarms, but the old wiring harnesses will work with the new alarms with the exceptions of the I12010S (21010407-A), the I12010SCO (21010408-N), and the KN-COSM-IBA (21006377-N). These models will not work with the much older wiring harnesses because these particular alarms won't fit onto the bracket with the older larger plugs. The wiring harnesses can get brittle as they age and the plastic or the wires can break. Best practice is to change out the wiring harnesses every 10 years to avoid that from happening. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Lately, I have have a few "wake up" calls early in the morning by these devices. They really do a good job waking everyone up, which is really important in the big picture. Realizing now that they have to be replaced every 10 years, I have come to this model i12060 after reading several reviews. Some of the questions I have came across is, "Is this a good replacement for the 1276?". So to clear that question up, I just replaced one of my detectors with this model i12060 without any problems. I will now go purchase replacements for the rest in my house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality control Though Kidde smoke alarms enjoy a great reputation, their battery is cheap, likely to die in less than 6 months. If you are selling a quality product, why put bad materials in it? Am I supposed to assume the alarm itself is of better quality than the battery? Kidde customer service is completely unsympathetic, and the included battery is not under warranty, even if it fails at 5 months. Ask your electrician for something else. I'm replacing all the batteries in my newly renovated house. What a scam!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't bother purchasing I bought these to replace old alarms. One is only a few months old and chirping. Old lady up on ladder to replace the battery in the middle of the night and it's still chirping. Dogs going insane. I turned off the breaker and it's quiet, but isn't the alarm supposed to be in case electricity goes off. I'm calling electrician to replace all. Perhaps they have a better product. Another DIY project gone bad.

Have purchased 4 of these over the last 4-5 years, they go bad after +/- 2 years in my place. They start beeping every few minutes and if you push the silence button they are quiet for about 8 hrs. Have bought the BRK photo style now and see if they last longer then these Ionization type.

I had to use one of the adapters to hook it up to the exiting wire system. I like that the batter is easily accessible and doesn't involve a lot of effort like my old detectors did.
