A: This is a "combo" alarm that utilizes multiple technologies. The following is taken from the product description: The Intelligent Alarm combines the detection capabilities of an ionization smoke sensor - which is more likely to detect smaller, less visible fire particles, like those produced by flaming fires - with that of an electro-chemical sensor, which is used to detect CO. Hope that helps.
A: Hello. No, this is an ionization alarm. For the Photoelectric version, you will want the KN-COPE-D model 21029923 or the P3010L model 21029618.
A: They run by batteries
A: These are battery powered. So they do not need to be hard wired.
A: If it is a solid green light and has a red light flashing every 30 seconds to a minute and if the alarm only has one speaker on one side instead of two speakers, one on each side, then the alarm is not this model. You may have multiple models in your house and some may be just smoke alarms with no CO detection. You can tell from the model on the back of the alarm. Builders often put smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in the hallways and put smoke alarms in the bedrooms and common rooms. If the battery needed to be changed, the alarm would chirp every minute. Rotate the alarm off of the bracket and take it down completely and call us with the alarm in hand at 1-800-880-6788 so we can tell you more about how the alarm functions and help you find the owner's manual.
A: Hello. Yes. It is meant to go under the batteries and help take them out by pulling on the strip.
A: Yes. This helps with getting the battery out.
