The First Alert SC7010B Hardwired Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup delivers both smoke and carbon monoxide detection in a single unit. Equipped with a photoelectric smoke sensor and an electrochemical CO sensor, it accurately detects smoke produced by smoldering fires and carbon monoxide leaks from multiple sources. If a threat is detected, the alarm emits a spread spectrum horn tone that is designed to be heard by people with age-related hearing loss.
Photoelectric Sensor Warns of Smoldering Fires
The First Alert SC7010B alarm comes equipped with a photoelectric sensor to provide the earliest possible warning of fire. The sensor is optimized to detect larger smoke particles produced by smoldering fires, such as those caused by unextinguished cigarettes. It also distinguishes between real threats and smoke and vapor produced during showering, cooking, and other everyday activities, helping minimize the number of false alarms. This makes the alarm an excellent choice for installation in kitchens, near fireplaces, outside bathrooms, and in other areas that are prone to producing steam and smoke.
Optipath 360 for Comprehensive Detection
Optipath 360 technology enhances the alarm’s detection abilities by providing the sensor with 360-degree access to the layer of air around the ceiling. This allows the sensor to detect smoke, combustion particles, volatile components, and other fire signatures in the surrounding air more easily.
Electrochemical Sensor Reliably Detects CO
The First Alert SC7010B Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm uses an advanced electrochemical CO sensor to detect elevated carbon monoxide levels from a variety of sources, such as faulty fuel-burning appliances, blocked chimneys, and cars left running in the garage. The alarm is also microprocessor-controlled to help minimize false alarms. When CO is detected, the carbon monoxide detector sounds an alarm to warn you of the threat. Carbon monoxide can’t be seen, smelled, or tasted in the air, and it is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. By placing carbon monoxide detectors on every floor of the home and in each sleeping room, you can help protect your family from the danger of carbon monoxide.
Spread Spectrum Horn Tone Warns of Danger
If the alarm detects smoke or elevated carbon monoxide levels, it alerts you to danger with a spread spectrum horn tone. This loud tone has a lower frequency that can be heard more easily by people with normal age-related hearing loss.
Easy to Install and Operate
The perfect mount system makes aligning and installing the alarm easy, while the tamper-resistant locking pins keep the alarm secure. A one-touch silence/test button makes it easy to test the detector or mute it in the event of a false alarm. And thanks to the end-of-life timer, you can know exactly when it is time to replace the alarm. AC-powered smoke alarms must be installed in accordance with all local electrical codes.
Battery Backup for Detection During a Power Outage
This smoke alarm is designed for hardwired installation, but it also features a battery backup that helps ensure continued functionality in the event of a power outage. The unit comes with two AA batteries.

I have been using First Alert products for many years with no problems. This was a replacement unit for an end of life unit. Upgraded to a 2 in 1 unit for better coverage.
Great product! - 10/16/2017

Easy to install, and they even come with batteries!
Good to have a CO detector. - 07/31/2017
Reviewer: Richard Hunter
House was built before CO detectors were required so put one in when the old smoke detectors reached 10 years old. Easy to install and works fine.

I WILL NEVER BUY MY REPLACEMENT PRODUCTS FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. FAST AND RELIABLE PRODUCTS.
Reviewer: Daniel Zerby
Too keep up with building codes. Combination units are required in Colorado. If these units go off my smoke alarms will also go off. Much better then the plug in CO detectors that are not inter-connected
