Wireless Interconnect Alarms
Common Questions About First Alert Wireless Interconnect Alarms
I’m using basic smoke alarms. Why would I switch?
The installation of a fully operational smoke alarm continues to play an integral role in providing homes the best defense against the many dangers attached to undetected smoke. One of the limiting factors of a basic smoke alarm is that it will only alert the surrounding area. This can potentially create a scenario where you may not even hear a smoke alarm sounding off. Think of a basic smoke detector sounding off in a basement. There’s really no guarantee that someone living in a two story home will be able to hear it from their upstairs bedroom. It’s one of the most glaring weaknesses of a standard smoke detector and one that a First Alert Wireless Interconnect Smoke Alarm immediately addresses.
What are wireless interconnect smoke alarms?

First Alert Wireless Interconnect Smoke Alarms remove the limitations of a standard smoke detector by being able to link with one another. There’s a lot of inherent flexibility on display here as interconnected smoke alarms will allow homeowners to create a personalized smoke and fire defense system that’s unique to their home. We mentioned the possibility of not being able to hear a basic smoke detector sound off in opposing locations in a home. It’s a doubt that’s removed completely here as interconnected smoke detectors will sound off in unison when triggered. An interconnected smoke alarm that detects smoke in the basement will alert all other linked devices in the home.
How many First Alert Wireless Interconnect Alarms can I link together?
You’ll be able to interconnect up to 18 compatible First Alert Wireless Alarms together. This should be more than enough to create a custom smoke, fire and carbon monoxide defense suited specifically for your home.
Will I have whole home coverage using wireless interconnect alarms?
When the words whole home coverage are used, we tend to focus all of our attention on smoke and fire detection. Setting up interconnected smoke alarms is an excellent way of achieving this, but is it really home coverage? The First Alert brand excels in delivering protection on multiple fronts and one of those is dealing directly with the silent killer, carbon monoxide. First Alert Interconnected Combination Alarms are capable of identifying the dual threats of smoke and carbon monoxide. The same precision technology of identifying the location of detected carbon monoxide is on display here.
