Yes you can add an additional unit . But you must program it to the same program numbers on the all units. Very simple to do. When any unit goes off all units will be activated.

is there a combo CO2/smoke detector that can be added to these three?

Hello Jim, There is a combination unit in this group. You will be looking for the P4010dcsco-w. This is a battery operated combination unit that is wireless and interconnects with others in this series.

How long do the 3 AA batteries typically last ?

Asked by Harry June 29, 2020
3
Answers

Good AA batteries will last 18 to 20 months. Cheap ones maybe 12 to 14 months. I have found it best to use good batteries and replace them at fall time change. That way, they don't wake me up in the middle of the night chirping because of low battery. Then, I keep the used ones, to use in other things, like flashlights that use AA's.

Pricing doesnt make sense. If I buy 3 individually its only $83. Usually when you buy a bundle its cheaper. Whats the catch? 1 Pack = $27 3 Pack = $95

You live in an older home. I can't directly answer the question. I would purchase them and set them in the rooms you need to monitor without installing them. Press the test button and see if they work. These are really great detectors. You can always return them to Home Depot if they don't work. Buy the value pack to save money.

Wow, this is a very creative work-around to the limit of 12 per code. It should work, but since we're dealing with life safety here, I recommend that you confirm with the manufacturer.

at a time how many device we can connect through this Inerconnect system

Asked by jibs September 29, 2019

Answers

In my house, I have six of them interconnected together. I don't believe there is a limit on how many can be interconnected; what is important is that each wireless detector is within the range of the one detector with the transmitter that is wired.

disappointing battery life
15 months! That is all the batteries lasted for these units, with a manufacture date of October 2018. Expected better from Duracell and Kidde. Gonna have to try Energizer!

Response from Kidde ExpertAug 27, 2020
Hello BACRtc,
Thanks for reaching out. The batteries should be changed yearly. The unit, itself, has a 10 year life. The batteries need to be changed every year.

Installed these in an elderly friend's home. Having a linked/loud detector on all levels of the home feels more secure. Installed 3 smoke detectors and 2 carbon monoxide detectors in about half an hour. I have had these devices in my home for several years and had no false set offs.

Bought 8 of these and after about 6-8 months they started to yellow and look old. Its been over a year and they look terrible. Home Depot and Kidde said "tough luck" we don't cover discoloration.

Response from Kidde ExpertMay 31, 2019
Hello. This sounds very unusual and we would like to know more about this. Call us at 1-800-880-6788 and choose the option for P4010 alarms which will get you directly to tier 2. Say that there is a file in the system, first name K, last name W. We don't normally cover discoloration but this is very unusual for this alarm and we would like to get pictures and see what is going on and we can see what we can do for you.

Definitely think this is a great product. Was just had a small fire in our house and while we had smoke detectors in various locations...and they tested that they were working...none went off. I bought these immediately and have replaced all existing smoke detectors in our house. These are easy to install do not require a hard wire...wirelessly these communicate with the other detectors so if one senses smoke and its alarm sounds then all detectors go off! This a very "peace of mind" feature. Another feature is the signal lights indicating which detector sensed the smoke. I plan to buy more of these to upgrade detectors in my rental properties. FYI these have frequency settings to prevent overlap signals if they were used in an Apartment or Town House setting.

I am so excited to have found these! I just purchased a townhome that was built before it was a requirement to have smoke detectors in the bedrooms - it was noted during the home inspection, but wasn't a requirement for financing. An electrician wanted a good chunk of money to install hardwired units using the existing lines and it would require cutting through the ceilings - and taking time off from work. I then considered battery operated only units, but was concerned with the fact they wouldn't be interconnected (one goes off, all go off.) This was the perfect solution! I purchased the compatible AC base unit in store (my home is already hardwired, so it i\was necessary to replace an exiting unit with one of these to interconnect all units in the house), set the dip switches to match the base, popped in the 3 AA batteries they came with, tested them out, installed them onto the ceiling with two small screws and viola! interconnected smoke alarms for the whole house! I plan to buy a single unit for the basement as well. You cannot put a price tag on the safety of your family, but this was a super inexpensive way to protect my family's well being - and I did everything myself!

I have 2 of these currently and installed 3 more in places I am not hard wire interconnected. The setup and install was easy and it's good to have interconnectedness where I need it. However, I really feel they are over priced for what they are. We are past the point where wireless is cutting age technology and I think these things are marketed as such. Otherwise extremely great product.

I bought these because I needed a wireless, interconnected, non hard wired smoke detectors system to replace the out of date original system. I placed 8 of these in a Church rectory with 4 resident apartments and the main offices, (some of the apartments detached with a courtyard between), and was not sure they would actually work with the cinder block construction. I am pleasantly surprised that when tested from the furthest apartment they all responded flawlessly. I gave a 4 star only because they are new and so durability and battery consumption is unknown right now.
