Hello Tereasa, Thanks for reaching out. We typically recommend changing the wire harness to the one provided. However, if you use your existing harness, adapter ka-f2 will work. The closest unit in looks in the Kidde line is i4618
No just have someone connect the new one to the smoke detectors.
Yes you can use these adapters to connect a new smoke alarm to the old connector that is in the ceiling. I had the local fire department change out 2 old smoke detectors located on a 15 foot ceiling. Since they are not permitted to do electrical work to change out the old connector in the ceiling with the new connector that comes with the new smoke detector I had to use these adapters.
Hello. Yes. The I4618AC will work with the KA-F adaptor. You will plug in the KA-F adaptor into the old plug and then be able to plug the new alarm into the adaptor. You will still need to change out the mounting bracket.
Hello J957, We recommend using the wiring harness that is provided with the new Kidde unit. The adapter will only serve to allow specific FIREX unit wiring to work with specific hardwired Kidde units. It will not make them compatible however. All of the old must be removed prior to installation of the new.
This product will not work, there are 2.
Hello GIgi, It will only work with kidde models with a 9V battery backup such as kn-cope-ic, i12060 i4618 i12040 or i12080
Hello Jbird, I have no way of answering that. You will need to contact first alert.
Hello Cheryl, The adapters only work with specific FIREX models to specific Kidde models. It is recommended that the harness get changed to the ones provided with the new units.
i just replaced 7 fireex 120-1182 with kidde/firex model #i12060A for 16.97 at home depot item #21009444
