Promote greater fire safety with the First Alert 7010B Hardwired Photoelectric Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup. This hardwired smoke detector uses a photoelectric smoke sensor to reliably detect smoke produced by smoldering fires, helping give you a vital early warning of fire. A battery backup helps ensure seamless protection in the event of a power outage.
Photoelectric Sensor Warns of Smoldering Fires
The First Alert 7010B 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.
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.
The universal mounting bracket takes the hassle out of installation and covers up drywall cutouts, while tamper-resistant locking pins keep the alarm secure. Plug-in power connectors allow you to easily connect the alarm to an existing power source, making installation even easier. 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 a 9-volt battery and features an easy-to-access battery drawer.
Works in Tandem with Other First Alert Alarms
In addition to functioning independently, this smoke alarm can also integrate with up to 12 other First Alert or BRK hardwired alarms for coverage of larger spaces. It also integrates with up to six other compatible devices, such as bells, horns, and repeaters. If one alarm in the series is triggered, they will all sound. The alarm features a latching indicator to identify which unit triggered the alarm, alerting you to the area of danger.Recommended replacement for the following obsolete models: BRK 2002RAC

Units work well and are very sensitive sometimes overly so but overall very good.

So far so good. Easy to install.
Other reasons include: It could be a different device or appliance such as a security system, monitor, carbon monoxide alarm, or other device which has a similar low battery or alert signal. Some of the same factors that cause unwanted alarms can cause intermittent alarms: dust and insects in the alarm or power interruptions in hardwired alarms. Improper wiring on AC or AC/DC smoke alarms. AC alarms will chirp every 5 seconds if the interconnect wire is grounded. The orange interconnect wire should NEVER be grounded; it should only be used to interconnect other smoke alarms or compatible devices.
