The Kidde Front-Loading Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm (SKU # 21007624) offers protection from two hazards fire and CO in one unit. Sold under the FireX brand, this AC-wire with battery backup alarm emits a beeping tone followed by a voice warning that clearly announces the danger by saying, Fire! Fire! or Warning! Carbon Monoxide!. The uniquely designed frontloading battery compartment makes battery replacement quick and easy, and ensures proper installation. Manufactured with photoelectric sensors for detecting smoke and fire, this alarm also includes the world's most accurate CO sensing technology based on claims by major manufacturers.
This alarm uses photoelectric sensing technology for the smoke alarm. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Kidde strongly recommends that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fire that can occur within the home.
If you are replacing another brand system with these alarms, you may want to consider a KA-B or KA-F adapter to make the job easier.
