Q:Bought hardwired Firex by mistake. Replacing battery only. Can I use the ones I bought with the backup battery instead of wiring into system?

Answer This Question

A:  Hello. No. This alarm was made to be hardwired and the battery is just a temporary backup for short term power outages.

    Q:Does this replace model #46186? Thank you

    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. Note that the adaptors will not work with our new Detect line of smoke alarms.

      Q:I have a late 80s BRK 1839ACI smoke alarm hard wire. I want to replace it. What alarm do I need. They were literally a white and a black wire that plugged in back of the old BRK unit.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello. You will need to find out what kind of power the old alarm took and if it was hooked up to an alarm panel. Our hardwired alarms take 120 volts AC power and need a hot wire and a neutral wire. The red interconnect wire is optional. Before buying any alarms, find out from your local authority requiring smoke alarms, usually your local fire department or local fire marshal's office, exactly what kind of smoke alarms you are required to have and where you are required to have them.

        Incompatible with Lithium battery
        This was to go in a high, hard to access location. I use 10-year, 9v Lithium batteries for the back-up battery because of the difficulty of access. Nowhere on the outside packaging did I see the incompatibility with Lithium batteries disclosed. That key datum was revealed only after purchasing the unit and opening the package. VERY ANNOYING! This review refers to Kidde model i12060A.

        Hello. It sounds like you would be happier with the I12010S model 21029878 or the P4010ACS model 21029894. These alarms will have a built-in 10 year lithium battery that you never have to change.

          I like the smoke detector. The ten year batteries don't last more than a single year. Second, who tests a smoke alarm and resets it once a month?? That's the directions. Third, if you have any dust (country living) or the little night bugs like gnats and mosquitoes....they are attracted to the power light and set it off as they get inside the unit. You'll need to use compressed air to blow them out. The alarm I bought that caused this rating is a replacement for the one I kept blowing out, and yet it continues to chirp....after a week or so, and in the middle of the night....

          I love the battery door right on the front of the unit. Easy to install new battery. This unit comes with adapters for replacing other brands of hardwired detectors. I had a First Alert unit that needed to be replaced, but it was so old that the adapters would not work. I had to wire in the new plug which was a bit disappointing since I paid extra for the unit with the adapters. The wall plate was not large enough to cover the old detectors footprint. This left a small area that needed some touch up paint to cover.
