Product Details

The Kidde i12010S is an AC/DC powered, ionization smoke alarm that operates on a 120V power source with sealed-in lithium 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. Leading authorities recommend that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home. The i12010S contains a 10-year tamper proof battery that eliminates the need for battery replacement, and ends worry over unauthorized battery removal. The alarm provides continuous protection from smoke and fire, even during power outages. At the end of alarm life, the unit will chirp, indicating the alarm is in need of replacement. The customer can use a simple tool such as a screwdriver to deactivate the unit, stopping the chirp and making it safe for disposal. The end of life signal can be temporarily silenced to allow for replacement at a more convenient time.

Q:Does this model have the ability to interconnect?
by|Jan 20, 2023
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Yes

by|Jan 24, 2023

    A:  Hello. Yes, it can interconnect if it is on a 3 wire circuit as shown in the owner's manual with a hot 120V wire, a neutral wire, and a 3 wire for interconnection that just goes from alarm to alarm to alarm and does not hook up to the circuit breakers. You can not use a ground wire as the interconnect.

    by|Jan 23, 2023

      A:  Yes, if the units you are replacing are connected, and you are installing in the same spot.  My existing units / home wiring (power) had the third wire connecting all units in the home.   This product connects the same way (hardwire).  I purchased these to replace older battery backup units mounted on high ceilings  - difficult access to replace battery.  These do not connect via Bluetooth or other wireless method. Good choice for direct replacement.

        Q:will the plug on this unit socket with firex120-1182
        by|Jan 9, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello. There is no direct replacement for your alarms. That being said, you can use any of our current alarms to replace your older alarms. You will have to take down all of the older alarms before putting up any new alarms. You will have to change out the mounting brackets at each location but that will just take a screwdriver to change out. You will either have to change out and rewire the wiring harness plugs at each location or you can choose to use the KA-F2 adaptors to adapt the old plugs to our new alarms. The adaptors would plug into the old plugs and the new alarms would plug into the adaptors. The model for the adaptor pack is the 21028461 which includes the KA-F2 and the KA-B2 for some of the older BRK/First Alert plugs.

          Q:Do these smoke detectors come with wire adapters to plug-in to the detector?
          by|Dec 16, 2022
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello. The alarms come with Kidde wiring harness plugs to be wired in, yes. They don't come with wiring harness adaptors to adapt plugs from other companies to our alarms.

            Q:After installation should a green light be on
            by|Nov 28, 2022
            3 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes

            by|Dec 2, 2022

              A:  Hello. Yes. If the alarm is getting AC power from the wiring circuit then the alarm should be getting AC power. If it is a flashing green every 60 seconds then the unit is running on battery alone and either not wired in or not getting AC power. Call us while on location with a ladder ready at 1-800-880-6788 so we can figure out what is going on.

              by|Nov 29, 2022

                  Family will be safe! Easy Install - Good for 10 years
                  Incredibly easy to install, was able to use my old smoke detectors wiring with the new ones. Took less then 5 mins each to install. Loosened 2 screws, removed the old mounting plates, added the new ones, plugged in the hard wired plugs, lined up the new smoke detectors to the new mounting plates and was done. No more waking in the middle of tge night to a chirpping smoke detector that need a new battery! Good for 10 years...... my family has peace of mind.

                    No more batteries to change. I can't tell you how excited I am to not have to change out batteries twice a year. These hard-wired smoke detectors replaced our existing Kidde hard-wired detectors. The swap out was super, super easy.

                    My smoke detectors were 21 years old and needed replacing, so I decided to try the 10 year models for all the hallway units. Installation was simple and instructions clear. Units hooked to the wired system and instantly sounded all alarms in the house when tested. If you are reasonably handy you can do this.

                    I first bought then but then took them back because I didn't know how to wire them into the 18 year old existing electrical harness on my old ones I was replacing. Then I found the adapter that is sold separately. But I had to go to the four points store to get the adapters I needed. Our ceilings are 14 feet high. At 67 years old I don't like standing in a ladder that high while using a drill with one hand to unscrew the old attachment plates in order to replace them. But Captain Glenn Trubee at the local Lake Travis Fire Rescue came out to my house to install them for me. A service they offer to people like me who can't get up on the ladder to install smoke detectors. So be sure and get the adapters and call the Fire Department if you need help. They were happy to help me.

                    Bought 7 of these hardwired smoke detectors from Home Depot to replace our aging smoke detectors and haven't had any problems with them. The new harness was included and installation was a breeze. They are all interconnected so when one goes off they all go off which gives us peace of mind that we will be alerted in case there is a fire anywhere in our house. They fully meet out expectations and it is great not to have to replace the batteries each year. Excellent product.
