The 7010BSL First Alert Hardwired Photoelectric Smoke Detector with Battery Backup & Strobe features a photoelectric smoke sensing chamber, an integrated 177 candela strobe light, an 85dB horn and AAA battery back-up. The Strobe Light is designed to provide hearing impaired individuals with a visual warning of a fire.
