Product Overview

The Kidde FireX i12060A 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.

Simplest replacement of any home repair items I have. The alarm connection plug fit perfectly with my existing wired smoke alarm system. I really like the model I selected with backup battery access on the front side of the alarm so I don't have to remove the alarm from the ceiling and unplugging it to replace the battery. Simple and fast online ordering.

My Kidde Fire X Smoke Detector was easy to install. I really liked the easy access to the battery with the front load battery access. It has all of the features you look for in a fire alarm. I would highly recommend this product.

The installation was an ease. The hard wire option is the best and simple instructions to understand. It took about 5 mins per unit.

I have had these for a little over a year, maybe 16 months. They were easily to install. The battery is not hard to change (yes, despite being hardwired, I have had to change the battery in them). They do alert you, and they are loud. They will wake you up at 3am. They will also alert the neighbors (they text me to tell me my house was beeping). Unfortunately, they alert me when it rains, not when there is smoke. I can't leave my garage door open or they will go off.

Response from Kidde ExpertOct 29, 2019
Hello WakesMeUpAt3AM,
Typically, Nuisance alarms, particularly in the middle of the night, are caused by something interfering with the sensor. These units are looking for particles of combustion, so when a small insect or piece of dust gets into the sensor (*located inside of the unit) the unit will interpret this as smoke particles. We recommend using compressed air, through the side vents/ bug screen and blowing out/cleaning the alarm really well. If you continue to have issues, please call product support. 800 880 6788

    Our 11 year old fire detectors were not interchangeable with the new FireX detectors, but it only took a couple minutes to rewire using the new wiring harness included with the new set. We installed 10 units in about an hour and a half. The units have a great top-loading battery compartment and the check and quiet buttons are also right on top. Having a wide mounting collar against the ceiling eliminated any need for touch-up painting from the old ring. Its ionization sensor feature is a big comfort.

    Easy to install, comes with batteries and mounting plate to fit nearly any hardwire box. Comes up short of five stars for one hassle. The sticker ironically proclaiming ‘NO MORE HASSLE’ on the front, advertising the front load battery door. First off, I’ve already bought this and taken it out of the box, I don’t need to be sold on this feature. Second, the sticker is printed on paper with a regular adhesive backing. It leaves residue and paper remnants on the front of the unit. This could all have been printed on the pull tab that activates the battery. They do also come with a shower cap looking bonnet to keep them dust free if you are renovating. Those are worth handing onto for the next time you paint.

      Instructions were concise and easy to follow. Smoke detectors were a replacement for 20 year old Kidde detectors and installed very easily on existing wiring with interconnect. I feel as though we are safer with detectors that are not 20 years old. I really like that the batteries can be changed without removing the unit from the mount-simply push in on the door and it exposes the battery.
