I am replacing 7 old Firex Model AD smoke detectors with Kidde Model i12060. From what I have read, the KA-F adapter could be used to eliminate my rewiring for the i12060 plug. I would still have to replace the back plate but the adapter will save lots of time. Please confirm that my research is correct. Thanks.
Asked by: Al
I replaced my old Firex detectors with i2060 with the KA-F adapter. It worked, but I didn’t save as much time as I had hoped. The adapters were expensive, difficult to open, and difficult to snap into the back of the i2060. If I were to do it again, I would simply re-wire the new adapter into the harness; the screw nuts are not that difficult to work with. Also, over the last 6 months I have had 3 false alarms with the i2060 units... always at about 3am. From what I’ve read, open windows that allow cool air into a warm house can cause these false alarms; extremely frustrating!!!

Do these work on BRK 3120B smoke alarms? i just picked up ten new alarms and converting from old Firex wiring harness. If these are not compatible is there another version that is?
Asked by: Mark
Mark, I do not believe these adapters will work with your smoke alarms. I replaced all smoke alarms in my house with these adapters and found that they were: pickles to attach to the detectors, expensive, and not really necessary. Your new alarms should come with a wiring adapter to connect to your house via wire nuts. Open breaker for smoke alarms, remove old smoke alarm, pull wire harness out until wire nuts are exposed, remove old wire harness, attach new wire harness, connect new harness to the new smoke detector. Wire colors are black to black, white to white, and red to red or red to yellow. There are YouTube videos for reference. Good luck!

i need to replace several old firex 120 538b smoke alarm. A I4618 with adapter is what is needed. Do you have these items?
Asked by: Pete
I replaced one that was no longer working and needed something to keep from having to rewire at 10 feet in the air, the adapter worked great and turned a project into a plug in.

Smoke Alarm Adapters (2-Pack) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The adapter works fine, but you only get one adapter... The adapter works fine, but you only get one adapter that works in the package. There are two types of adapters in this package, so only one works with your old wiring, and the other is useless. Be aware that you will be throwing away 1 of the 2 adapters from this pack. Look closely at the picture and you can see they are different.

I purchased these adapters to wire in several i12010sco smoke/CO detectors with 10/yr battery life. Of course the plug on the back is offset so that if you try to use an adapter, it wont connect or sit flush on the back plate. These will not work due to a poor design on Kidde's part. Avoid having to use these adapters: Find another detector or call an electrician.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adapter does work to older smoke alarm wiring, but may require aggressive rework of new mounting plates My home was build in 2000, and featured 10 hardwired Firex branded alarms. 16 years later, I took a weekend to replace the original alarms. (fortunately I never needed them, but I felt it was wise to replace regardless. To be clear, this adapter does allow you to retrofit older wiring (in my case Firex to Kidde), but the adapter does not fit into the new Kidde mounting plates. The most difficult part was to cut out sufficient amount of the new mounting plates to accommodate the large adapter plates. I used angle cut pliers and it did require some hand strength. I recommend a drill press or jig saw if you have one of those available. Please note, the mounting plate is still plenty strong even after removing a portion of the center to accommodate the new adapter. The adapter did it's job, but the project took much longer than expected only because of the rework required to the new kidde mounting plate.

I just wish you sold the adapters separately, and not as a pair with both styles. What am I supposed to do with the other one? Seems a waste of materials.

The adaptor wired fine, but we had to make a second trip to buy what we needed because the product description does not make it clear that the two adaptors in this package are, in fact, not the same. In other words, make sure that you purchase one package per alarm unit!
