First Alert's series of Wireless Talking Battery Operated Smoke & CO Alarms effectively eliminates the need for a wired connection and operates entirely on batteries. The latest advancement in a series celebrated for its intuitive use of technology, the First Alert Wireless Interconnect collection offers an abundance of options when it comes to creating the ideal safety network. Wirelessly inter-connectivity allows you to connect up to 16 alarms within your home! Voice can easily be programmed for alarm's location within your home. (this feature comes with 11 pre-programmed choices) Voice also notifies which hazard is being detected. If the alarm set in your kitchen senses smoke, all of your First Alert Wireless Interconnect alarms will announce: 'Warning, evacuate! Smoke in the Kitchen!' This feature allows for the maximum in whole home protection. The communication distance (range) between any two First Alert Wireless Interconnect Alarms is typically 50 ft. (15 meters) inside of a home. Some features of a home, such as the number of floors, number/size of rooms, furniture and types of building materials used may reduce the range of wireless interconnect alarms.
First Alert Wireless Interconnect Talking Battery Operated Smoke & CO Alarms utilize an Electrochemical Sensor that allows for optimal efficiency in detecting carbon monoxide. The realization of Photoelectric Smoke Sensing Technology will effectively reduce the number of nuisance alarms triggered by cooking smoke and shower steam. This alarm comes equipped with a Mute Button that serves the dual purpose of quickly silencing your alarm as well as testing its function. The combination of an End of Life Timer and an increased emphasis on the unit's 85db sound output establishes peace of mind, while the inclusion of Dual Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Sensing all but guarantees the safest of experiences. This alarm carries a 7 year limited warranty and complies with UL217 and UL2034 Standards.

Actual battery service life depends on the particular design of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm and the environment in which it is installed. All kinds of alarm batteries specified in the user's manual are acceptable replacement batteries. Regardless of the manufacturer's suggested battery life, you MUST replace the batteries immediately once the unit starts "chirping" (the "low battery warning"). It is recommended that you change the batteries in your alarms when you change your clocks for daylight saving time. Also consider replacing your current alarms with 10-Year Life Alarms that never require a costly battery replacement for the ten year life of the alarm. This 10-Year series is available in smoke, carbon monoxide and combination alarms.
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.
Smoke alarms have a limited life. Although each smoke alarm and all of its parts have passed many stringent tests and are designed to be as reliable as possible, any of these parts could fail over time. Therefore, you must test the devices weekly. The unit should be replaced immediately if it is not operating properly. The performance of smoke alarms older than 10 years is simply not reliable. To ensure your family's safety, all carbon monoxide and smoke/CO combination alarms need to be replaced every 5-7 years. All smoke alarms need to be replaced every 10 years.
If it's time to replace your alarms, consider the NEW 10-Year Life series and never have to worry about a battery replacement for the life of the alarm.10-Year alarms are available in smoke, carbon monoxide and combination alarms.

Just what we needed
We needed smoke detectors that if one went off, they all went off. Boy did we hit the jackpot. They are easy to install, easy to program and not only do they detect smoke, but carbon monoxide too. I hope we will never have to hear them they are loud but really great!!!

Bought these for my dad who is hard of hearing. He could not hear the standard smoke alarm tone but with these he can hear both the tone and the audible portion. The fact they interconnect with no wiring also gives us peace of mind that a smoke condition detected anywhere in the house will activate the device in his bedroom.

Feel Super Safe
I received this product for free through Smiley360 to review and I love It! It was super easy to install and I'm horrible at that sort of thing. Mainly I love the security of knowing that if there is a fire in the house the detector closest to it will tell the one in my bedroom to inform me of it and its location. I just recently had a daughter so this makes me more secure knowing that First Alert has our backs. I have almost died from a carbon monoxide leak before. I was lucky that my mom paid me a visit at the right time cause me and my animals were already asleep. Plus I'm one of those people that could burn water. I literally forgot I was boiling water until the alarm went off cause the pot was burning up. I'm so thrilled Smiley 360 and First Alert teamed up to give me this opportunity to try something new and protect my family.

This product is easy to set up and install. It communicates well with the others in the system. The product is very audible and will alarm you immediately.
