Q:Can this product be easily mounted to a concrete surface?
by|May 17, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello. You have a concrete ceiling? This alarm needs to be installed in a residential house or apartment, on the ceiling or, if you have a flat ceiling, on the wall within a foot of the ceiling. When mounting an alarm on the ceiling, locate it at a minimum of 4” (10 cm) from the side wall. When mounting the alarm on the wall, use an inside wall with the top edge of the alarm at a minimum of 4” (10 cm) and a maximum of 12” (30.5 cm) below the ceiling. NFPA 72 states: “Smoke alarms in rooms with ceiling slopes greater than 1 ft in 8 ft (.3m in 2.4 m) horizontally shall be located on the high side of the room.” NFPA 72 states: “A row of detectors shall be spaced and located within 3 ft (0.9m) of the peak of the ceiling measured horizontally." Do not install alarm in the garage. Products of combustion are present when you start your automobile. Do not install alarm Less than 4” (10cm) from the peak of an “A” frame type ceiling. Do not install alarm in an area where the temperature may fall below 40ºF or rise above 100ºF, such as garages and unfinished attics. Do not install alarm in dusty areas. Dust particles may cause nuisance alarm or failure to alarm. Do not install alarm in very humid areas. Moisture or steam can cause nuisance alarms. Do not install alarm In insect-infested areas. Smoke alarms should not be installed within 3 ft (.9m) of the following: the door to a kitchen, the door to a bathroom containing a tub or shower, forced air supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high air flow areas. In kitchens, normal cooking may cause nuisance alarms. If a kitchen alarm is desired, it should have an alarm silence feature or be a photoelectric type. Do not install alarm near fluorescent lights. Electronic “noise” may cause nuisance alarms. Use the screws and anchors provided to secure the mounting bracket (use 3/16” drill bit for anchors).

        Q:Have hared wired smoke detector now in California. Can I legally replace with battery only type?
        by|Apr 25, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello. That depends on your county and city codes. Contact your local authority requiring the smoke alarms, usually your local fire marshal's office or local fire department, to find out exactly what kind of smoke alarms you are required to have and where you are required to have them.

            Works great. Wanted an alarm that I didn’t have to keep changing the batteries. Definitely worth it. I put them on all three levels in my house.

            Hello, this smoke alarm doesn't have a fixture motion detector. I think this review is for the wrong product.

            False alarms, always at night
            Installed two of these a month ago, one in a hallway near a bathroom and one in bedroom by door. Hallway unit seems fine, have had no issues. Bedroom unit has gone off twice in back-to-back nights waking everyone up. I don't know if the hush button does anything because it rang right through me pushing it. I had to deactivate it at 2 am by discharging the 10-year built in battery, so that unit is trash and has to be replaced after one month. Do not recommend.

              Junk
              I bought the smoke detector a few months back and hooked it up today (3/19/2023). I tried to test it and it's no good. I spent good hard earned money with Kidde and got junk. Im sure other people have gotten good stuff from them. I don't think I'll buy any thing from them in the future.

                Malfunctioning Newly installed “10 year warranty”
                A (2021) newly installed supposedly “10 Year warranty” Sealed kidde Smoke/alarm detector kept on beeping (3 long beeps) intermittently every 10-15 minutes starting 4:30 am for TWO HOURS! There was absolutely NO “Combustible Components” in the air or anywhere! I had to dislodge it from the base to determine WHAT was the reason (as it is SEALED and there’s NO PLACE for Battery) I had to put up with the annoying alarm sound and continuously push the HUSH button in order to Shut this annoying sound off!! As a chronic insomniac I am disappointed, annoyed and angry for Losing one complete night of sleep! & do not know What to Do if this continues tonight?!?

                Hello. It sounds like some dust or debris or an insect got into the smoke chamber of the alarm and the alarm mistook the debris for smoke. False alarms are most commonly caused by something interfering with the sensor. To clean, hold the unit by its edge and thoroughly blow through the gap on the side of the unit with compressed air (like keyboard cleaner). We recommend cleaning out all of your smoke alarms at least every 6 months to a year and at this point we would recommend cleaning out all of your other alarms as well as a preventative. Some of your alarms may be in one the locations to avoid listed in the owner's manual. This would especially include alarms being installed within 3 ft (.9m) of a forced air supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high air flow areas. We recommend that alarms not be installed near vents, flues, chimneys, or fans. We recommend that alarms not be installed near doors or windows near areas directly exposed to the weather. We strongly recommend not to install these alarms in garages, attics, and crawl spaces as you will get temperatures, dust, insects, and chemicals that can cause nuisance alarms. Try cleaning out the alarms. If you have the issue again, call us with that alarm in hand at 1-800-880-6788 so we can get this resolved for you.

                    Very bulky, stained, ugly
                    Where to begin...No smoke detector is attractive but these are in their own world of ugly. At 6" x 2", they are larger than even decade+ old units. No hoping these will blend into the ceiling with the 1/4" x 3/4" repeating dust collector gash all around the circumference. Don't let the marketing pick showing a sleek cutout fool you you; these cutouts are massive. The unit will not activate unless screwed into the base which pretty much negates the whole point of buying battery operated detectors. As an added perk (NOT!), the detector made it into sealed packaging with several stains on its face. To add to the annoyance, Kidde felt compelled to slap a residue-leaving sticker on the side of each detector. The tl;dr -- Kidde took an established product (the battery operated smoke detector) and somehow managed to fubar it into the most unattractive form possible. Buy anything else. Pass on this one unless you just like hideous.
