What To Do When The Alarm Sounds!
!
WARNING:
Actuation of your CO Alarm
indicates the presence of
Carbon Monoxide (CO)
which can kill you.
When the carbon monoxide alarm sounds:
If alarm signal sounds:
1) Immediately move to fresh air – outdoors or by an
open door/window. Do a head count to
check that all persons are accounted for. Do not
re-enter the premises nor move away from
the open door/window until the emergency services
responders have arrived, the premises
have been aired out, and your alarm remains in its
normal condition.
2) Call your gas emergency services: 0800 111 999, or
your local Gas Safe Registered Engineer:
PHONE NUMBER
Alternatively, for solid fuel emergencies call
HETAS (0845 634 5626) or for oil based emergencies
call Oftec (0845 658 5080).
Never restart the source of the CO problem until it
has been corrected. Never ignore the sound
of the alarm! If the alarm is sounding, pressing the
test/reset button will terminate the alarm. If
the CO condition that caused the alert in the first
place continues, the alarm will reactivate. If the unit
alarms again within six minutes, it is sensing high
levels of CO which can quickly become
a dangerous situation.

What To Do When The Alarm Sounds!
NEVER IGNORE THE SOUND OF THE ALARM!
Determining what type of alarm has sounded is easy with
your Kidde Combination Smoke/CO Alarm. The voice
message warning system will inform you of the type of
situation occurring. Refer to the Features section on page 4
for a detailed description of each alarm pattern.
When the smoke alarm sounds:
Smoke alarms are designed to minimize false alarms.
Cigarette smoke will not normally set off the alarm, unless
the smoke is blown directly into the alarm. This unit
contains nuisance alarm protection, which will reduce the
impact of cooking particles. However, large quantities of
combustible particles from spills or grilling could still cause
the unit to alarm. Careful location of the unit away from
the kitchen area will give the maximum nuisance alarm
protection. Combustion particles from cooking may set off
the alarm if located too close to the cooking area. Large
quantities of combustible particles are generated from spills
or when broiling. Using the fan on a range hood which
vents to the outside (non- recirculating type) will also help
remove these combustible products from the kitchen.
If the alarm sounds, check for fires first. If a fire is discovered follow these steps. Become thoroughly familiar with
these items, and review with all family members!
• Alert small children in the home. Children sleep very
soundly and may not be awakened by the sound of
the smoke alarms.
• Leave immediately using one of your planned escape
routes (see page 25). Every second counts, don’t stop
to get dressed or pick up valuables.
• Before opening inside doors look for smoke seeping in
around the edges, and feel with the back of your hand
If the door is hot use your second exit. If you feel it’s
safe, open the door very slowly and be prepared to
close immediately if smoke and heat rush in.
• If the escape route requires you to go through smoke,
crawl low under the smoke where the air is clearer.

2014.3.21
What To Do When The Alarm Sounds!
• Go to your predetermined meeting place. When two
people have arrived one should leave to call 999 from
a neighbour's home, and the other should stay to
perform a head count.
• Do not reenter under any circumstance until fire
officials give the go ahead.
• There are situations where a smoke alarm may
not be effective to protect against fire. For example;
- Smoking in bed.
- Leaving children unsupervised.
- Cleaning with flammable liquids, such as gasoline.
- Fires where the victim is intimate with a flaming
initiated fire; for example, when a person's
clothes catch fire while cooking.
- Fires where the smoke is prevented from reaching the detector due to a closed door or other
obstruction.
- Incendiary fires where the fire grows so rapidly
that an occupant's egress is blocked even with
properly located detectors.

Features
• Permanent independent smoke and carbon monoxide sensors.
• Smoke alarm takes precedence when both smoke and
carbon monoxide are present.
• Alarm/Voice message warning system that alerts you of the
following conditions in the manner described below, thus
eliminating any confusion over which alarm is sounding:
o FIRE: The alarm/voice pattern is three long alarm beeps
followed by the verbal warning message “FIRE! FIRE!”.
This pattern is repeated until the smoke is eliminated. The
red LED light will flash while in alarm/voice mode.
o CARBON MONOXIDE: The alarm/voice pattern is four short
alarm beeps followed by the verbal warning message
“WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE!”. After four minutes
the alarm/voice pattern will sound once every minute until
the unit is reset, or the CO eliminated. The red LED light
will flash while in alarm/voice mode.
o LOW BATTERY: This alarm has a low battery pre-warning.
The red LED will flash every 60 seconds for a period of 28
days. Following this pre-warning, when the battery is low

Smoke Alarm Features
Smoke Alarm
The smoke alarm monitors the air for products of
combustion that are produced when something is burning
or smouldering. When smoke particles in the smoke sensor
reach a specified concentration, the alarm/voice message
warning system will sound, and be accompanied by the
flashing red LED light. The smoke alarm takes precedence when both smoke and carbon monoxide are
present.
Life safety from fire in residential occupancies is based primarily on early notification to occupants of the need to
escape, followed by the appropriate escape actions by those
occupants. Fire warning systems for dwelling units are capable of protecting about half of the occupants in potentially
fatal fires. Victims are often intimate with the fire, For the
old, young, or physically or mentally impaired such that
they cannot escape even when warned early enough that
escape should be possible. For these people, other strategies such as protection-in-place or assisted escape or rescue
are necessary.
• Smoke alarms are devices that can provide early warning
of possible fires at a reasonable cost; however, alarms
have sensing limitations. Ionisation sensing alarms may
detect invisible fire particles (associated with fast flaming
fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric
sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated
with slow smouldering fires) sooner than ionisation
alarms. Home fires develop in different ways and are
often unpredictable. For maximum protection, Kidde
recommends that both Ionisation and Photoelectric
alarms be installed.
• A battery powered alarm must have a battery of the
specified type, in good condition and installed properly.
• Smoke alarms must be tested regularly to make sure the
batteries and the alarm circuits are in good operating
condition.
• Smoke alarms cannot provide an alarm if smoke does not
reach the alarm. Therefore, smoke alarms may not sense
fires starting in chimneys, walls, on roofs, on the other
side of a closed door or on a different floor.

2014.3.21
Smoke Alarm Features
• If the alarm is located outside the bedroom or on a
different floor, it may not wake up a sound sleeper.
• The use of alcohol or drugs may also impair one’s ability
to hear the smoke alarm. For maximum protection, a
smoke alarm should be installed in each sleeping area on
every level of a home.
• Although smoke alarms can help save lives by providing
an early warning of a fire, they are not a substitute for an
insurance policy. Home owners and renters should have
adequate insurance to protect their lives and property.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm
The carbon monoxide (CO) alarm monitors the air for the
presence of CO. It will alarm when there are high levels of
CO present, and when there are low levels of CO present
over a longer period of time. When a CO condition
matches either of these situations, the alarm/voice message
warning system will sound, and be accompanied by the
flashing red LED light. The carbon monoxide sensor uses an
electrochemical technology.
! CAUTION: This alarm will only indicate the
presence of carbon monoxide gas at the sensor.
Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.
Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations less than 30 ppm.

Installation Guide:
IMPORTANT: THIS ALARM MUST BE MOUNTED ON A
CEILING OR WALL. IT WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR USE AS A
TABLETOP DEVICE! INSTALL
ONLY AS DETAILED!
A. Recommended
Installation Locations:
Kidde recommends the
installation of a Smoke/CO
Alarm in the following locations. For maximum protection we suggest an alarm be
installed on each level of a
multilevel home, including
every bedroom, hallways, finished attics and basements.
FIGURE 1
If installing this alarm in the
kitchen, please note that sometimes cooking fumes or
steam can result in 'nuisance' smoke alarms which can be
minimized by locating the alarm away from sources of
cooking fumes or steam. Put alarms at both ends of
bedroom, hallway or large room if hallway or room is more
than 30 ft (9.1m) long. If you have only one alarm, ensure it
is placed in the hallway outside of the main sleeping area,
or in the main bedroom. Verify the alarm can be heard in all
sleeping areas.
Locate an alarm in every room where someone sleeps with
the door closed. The closed door may prevent an alarm not
located in that room from waking the sleeper. Smoke, heat
and combustion products rise to the ceiling and spread
horizontally.
Mounting the alarm on the ceiling in the centre of the room
places it closest to all points in the room. Ceiling mounting is
preferred in ordinary residential construction. When mounting
an alarm on the ceiling, locate it at a minimum of 4” (10cm)
from the side wall (see figure 1). If installing the alarm on the
wall, use an inside wall with the top edge of the alarm at a
minimum of 4” (10cm) and a maximum of 12” (30.5cm)
8
below the ceiling (see figure 1).

2540-7205-02_10SCO(KN-COPE-D).qxd:_
2014.3.21
Operating and Installation Instructions
Sloped Ceiling Installation:
Install within 0.9m of the highest point (measured horizontally). Smoke alarms in rooms with ceiling slopes greater
than 0.3m in 2.4m horizontally shall be located on the high
side of the room. A row of detectors shall be spaced and
located within 0.9m of the peak of the ceiling measured
horizontally (see Figure 2)
FIGURE 2
Static Mobile Homes:
Modern mobile homes have been designed and built to be
energy efficient. Install Smoke/CO alarms as recommended
previously (refer to Recommended Installation Instructions
and figure 1). In older mobile homes that are not well
insulated, extreme heat or cold can be transferred from the
outside to the inside through poorly insulated walls and
roof. This may cause a thermal barrier, which can prevent
smoke from reaching an alarm mounted on the ceiling. In
such mobile homes install your Smoke/CO Alarm on an
inside wall with the top edge of the alarm at a minimum of
4 inches (10cm) and a maximum of 12 inches (30.5cm)
below the ceiling (See figure 1). If you are not sure about
the insulation in your mobile home, or if you notice that the
outer walls and ceiling are either hot or cold, install your
alarm on an inside wall ONLY!

B. Where Not to Install:
Do not install in garages, furnace rooms or bathrooms! INSTALL AT LEAST 5 FEET AWAY FROM ANY
FUEL BURNING OR COOKING APPLIANCE
• Don’t install within 5 feet of fuel burning appliances
• Don’t wall-mount close to obstructions (e.g. behind curtains, shelving or furniture)
• Don’t fit in dusty, dirty or greasy areas (e.g. garages or
workshops)
• Don’t wall-mount within 30cm of the ceiling as this is a
“dead air” space
• Avoid humid areas (such as bathrooms) with greater
than 90% relative humidity (RH), non-condensing, or
areas with temperatures outside of the operating range
(0-40C). Keep away from sinks.
• Don't install within 1 metre of fluorescent lights
Step 2: Mounting Instructions
! CAUTION: YOUR SMOKE/CO ALARM IS SEALED
AND THE COVER IS NOT REMOVABLE!
1. To help identify the date to replace the unit, a label has
been affixed to the side of the alarm. Write the “Replace
by” date (10 years from initial power up) in permanent
marker on the label. See Alarm Replacement section for
additional information.
2. Remove the mounting bracket from the back of the alarm
by holding the mounting bracket and twisting the alarm in
the direction indicated by the “OFF”arrow on the alarm
cover.
3. Selecting the proper location for your Smoke/CO Alarm, as
described on Pages 8-11. To ensure aesthetic alignment of
the alarm with the hallway, or wall, the “A” line on the
mounting bracket must be parallel with the hallway when
ceiling mounted, or horizontal when wall mounted.
4. Install the alarm on the mounting bracket and rotate the
alarm in the direction of the “ON” arrow on the cover
until the alarm ratchets into place (this ratcheting function

2014.3.21
Operating and Installation Instructions
allows for aesthetic alignment). Note: The alarm will
mount to the bracket in 4 positions (every 90 degrees).
5. Two labels are included with your alarm. They have important information on what to do in case of an alarm. Add
the phone number of your emergency service provider
(for smoke or fire emergencies call '999' or for CO gas
emergencies call 0800 111 999) in the space provided.
Alternatively, for solid fuel emergencies call HETAS (0845
634 5626) or for oil based emergencies call Oftec (0845
658 5080). Place one label next to the alarm after it is
mounted, and one label near a fresh air source such as a
door or window.
6. Pull the Battery Pull Tab (yellow tab protruding from unit)
completely out of unit. This will automatically connect
the battery.
Step 3: Testing the Alarm
! CAUTION: Due to the loudness (85 decibels) of the
alarm, always stand an arms length away from the
unit when testing.
The test/reset button has four purposes. It tests the unit’s
electronics, resets the CO alarm, activates the HUSH
feature, and activates the Peak Level Memory Feature.
After installation, TEST THE UNIT’S ELECTRONICS by
pressing and releasing the test/reset button. A series of
beeps will sound, followed by the message “Fire! Fire!”
then another two series of beeps and the message
“WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE!” followed by 4
additional short beeps.
Weekly testing is required! If at anytime it does not perform
as described, verify that the battery doesn’t need replacing.
Clean dust and other buildup off the unit. If it still doesn’t
operate properly call the Consumer Hotline at 0800 917
0722.
HUSH® Control Feature
The HUSH® feature has the capability of temporarily
desensitizing the smoke alarm circuit for approximately 10
minutes. This feature is to be used only when a known
alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking, activates the
alarm. You can put your Smoke/CO Alarm in HUSH® mode
by pushing the test/reset button. If the smoke is not too
11
10:48 AM
2540-7205-02_10SCO(KN-COPE-D).qxd:_
2014.3.21
Operating and Installation Instructions
dense, the alarm will silence immediately, the unit will
verbally announce “HUSH MODE ACTIVATED”, and the green
LED will flash every 2 seconds for approximately 10 minutes.
This indicates that the smoke alarm is in a temporarily desensitized condition. Your Smoke/CO Alarm will automatically
reset after approximately 10 minutes. When the unit returns
to normal operation after being in HUSH® mode, it will verbally announce “HUSH MODE CANCELLED”, and sound the
alarm if smoke is still present. The HUSH® feature can be
used repeatedly until the air has been cleared of the condition
causing the alarm. While the unit is in HUSH® mode, pushing
the test/reset button on the alarm will also end the HUSH®
period.
NOTE: DENSE SMOKE WILL OVERRIDE THE HUSH®
CONTROL FEATURE AND SOUND A CONTINUOUS ALARM.
CAUTION: BEFORE USING THE ALARM HUSH®
FEATURE,
IDENTIFY THE SOURCE OF THE SMOKE AND BE
!
CERTAIN A SAFE CONDITION EXISTS.
Reset Feature
If the Smoke/CO Alarm is sounding a CO alarm, pressing the
test/reset button will initiate a test/reset. If the CO condition
that caused the alert continues, the alarm will reactivate.
Alarm/Peak Level Memory
If the green LED is blinking once every 16 seconds, the unit
has detected a hazardous condition. If the unit has detected
a CO level of 100 PPM or greater, pushing the Test/Reset
button will result in a voice message “Caution, carbon
monoxide previously detected”. Peak level also happens if
the unit detects smoke and then comes out of alarm.
However, there is no voice message if the unit is in peak level
due to smoke. When the Test/Reset button is pushed, the
unit will produce three rapid beeps. Pushing the test/reset
button resets the memory. It’s also reset when the power is
removed.

Red LED
The red LED will flash in conjunction with the alarm
sounder. Therefore, the red LED will flash during a smoke
alarm, a CO alarm, a low battery mode chirp and a unit
error mode chirp.
Green LED
The green LED will flash as described below under the
following conditions:
– Standby Condition: The LED will flash every 30
seconds.
– Alarm Condition: The LED will flash every second signifying that the alarm sensed a smoke or CO hazard.
– HUSH MODE Condition: The LED will flash every 2
seconds while the alarm is in HUSH mode.
– Alarm Memory: The LED blinks once every 16 seconds
to indicate a hazardous condition was previously
detected.
Tamper Resist Features
To make your smoke/CO alarm tamper resistant, two
tamper resist features have been provided. The first is used
to discourage removal of the alarm while the second is for
the battery. To activate the mounting bracket tamper resist
feature break off the four posts in the square holes in the
trim ring (see figure 5A). When the posts are broken off,
the tamper resist tab on the base is allowed to engage the
mounting bracket. Rotate the alarm onto the mounting
bracket until you hear the tamper resist tab snap into place,
locking the alarm on the mounting bracket. Using the
tamper resist feature will help deter children and others
from removing the alarm from bracket.
NOTE: To remove the alarm when the tamper resist tab is
engaged, press down on the tamper resist tab, and rotate
the alarm off of the bracket (see figure 5B).

INSTRUCTIONS.
• Never use detergent or other solvents to clean the unit.
• Avoid spraying air freshener, hair spray, or other aerosols
near the Smoke/CO Alarm.
Do not paint the unit. Paint will seal the vents and interfere
with the sensor’s ability to detect smoke and CO. Never
attempt to disassemble the unit or clean inside. This action
will void your warranty. Move the Smoke/CO Alarm and
place in another location prior to performing any of the
following:
• Staining or stripping wood floors or furniture
• Painting
• Wall papering
• Using adhesives
Storing the unit in a plastic bag during any of the above
projects will protect the sensors from damage. Do not
place near a nappy bin.
! WARNING: Reinstall the Smoke/CO Alarm as soon as
possible to assure continuous protection.
When household cleaning supplies or similar contaminates
are used, the area must be well ventilated. The following
substances can effect the CO sensor and may cause false
readings and damage to the sensor: Methane, propane,
iso-butane, iso-propanol, ethyl acetate, hydrogen sulfide,
sulfide dioxides, alcohol based products, paints, thinner,
solvents, adhesives, hair spray, after shave, perfume, and
some cleaning agents.fety

Carbon Monoxide Safety Information
General CO Information
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and
tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled. CO
inhibits the blood’s capacity to carry oxygen.
Possible Sources
CO can be produced when burning any fossil fuel: gasoline,
propane, natural gas, oil and wood. It can be produced by any
fuel-burning appliance that is malfunctioning, improperly
installed, or not ventilated correctly. Possible sources include
furnaces, gas ranges/stoves, gas clothes dryers, water heaters,
portable fuel burning space heaters, fireplaces, wood-burning
stoves and certain swimming pool heaters. Blocked chimneys
or flues, back drafting and changes in air pressure, corroded or
disconnected vent pipes, can also cause CO. Vehicles and other
combustion engines running in an attached garage and using
a charcoal/gas grill or barbecue in an enclosed area are all
possible sources of CO. Do not BBQ in enclosed spaces.
The following conditions can result in transient CO situations:
Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel-burning appliances
caused by outdoor ambient conditions such as: Wind direction
and/or velocity, including high gusts of wind, heavy air in the
vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods between
cycles), negative pressure differential resulting from the use of
exhaust fans, simultaneous operation of several fuel-burning
appliances competing for limited internal air, vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or water
heaters, obstructions in, or unconventional, vent pipe designs
which can amplify the above situations, extended operation of
unvented fuel-burning devices (range, oven, fireplace, etc.),
temperature inversions which can trap exhaust gasses near the
ground, car idling in an open or closed attached garage, or
near a home.
CO Safety Tips
Every year have the heating system, vents, chimney and flue
inspected and cleaned by a qualified technician. Always
install appliances according to manufacturer’s instructions
and adhere to local building regulations. Most appliances
should be installed by professionals and inspected after
installation. Regularly examine vents and chimneys for
improper connections, visible rust, or stains, and check for

Carbon Monoxide Safety Information
cracks in furnace heat exchangers. If at any time you
discover any faults, contact a qualified technician. Verify the
color of flame on pilot lights and burners is blue. A yellow
or orange flame is a sign that the fuel is not burning
completely. Teach all household members what the alarm
sounds like and how to respond.
Symptoms of CO Poisoning
Initial carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms are similar to the
flu with no fever and can include dizziness, severe headaches,
nausea, vomiting and disorientation. Everyone is susceptible
but experts agree that unborn babies, pregnant women, senior
citizens and people with heart or respiratory problems are
especially vulnerable. If symptoms of carbon monoxide
poisoning are experienced seek medical attention immediately.
CO poisoning can be determined by a carboxyhemoglobin test.
The following symptoms are related to CARBON MONOXIDE
POISONING and should be discussed with ALL members of the
household:
Parts per
Million (PPM)
100
200
400
800
Affects on Adults
Slight headache, nausea, fa gue (flu-like
symptoms)
Dizziness and headache within 2 – 3
hours
Nausea, frontal headache, drowsiness,
confusion and rapid heart rate. Risk to life
aer over 3 hours of exposure
Severe headaches, convulsions, vital organ
failures. Death possible within 2 – 3 hours
The above levels of exposure relate to healthy adults. Levels
differ for those at high risk. Exposure to high levels of carbon
monoxide can be fatal or cause permanent damage and disabilities. Many cases of reported carbon monoxide poisoning
indicate that while victims are aware they are not well, they
become so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by
either exiting the building, or calling for assistance. Also,
young children and household pets may be the first effected.
Familiarisation with the effects of each level is important.

Fire Safety Information
Escape Plan
Prepare and practice a home escape plan twice a year, including drills at night. Know two ways out of every room (door &
window) and identify a meeting place outside the home where
everyone will gather once they have exited the residence.
When two people have reached the meeting place, one should
leave to call 999 while the second person stays to account for
additional family members.
Establish a rule that once you’re out, you never reenter
under any circumstance!
Fire Prevention
Never smoke in bed, or leave cooking
food unattended. Teach children never
to play with matches or lighters! Train
everyone in the home to recognize the
alarm pattern, voice message warning
and to leave the home using their
escape plan when it’s heard. Know how
to do “Stop, Drop and Roll” if clothes
catch on fire, and how to crawl low
under smoke. Install and maintain fire
extinguishers on every level of the home and in the kitchen,
basement and garage. Know how to use a fire extinguisher
prior to an emergency. Second level and higher occupied
rooms with windows, should have an escape ladder.
Current studies have shown smoke alarms may not awaken all
sleeping individuals, and that it is the responsibility of
individuals in the household that are capable of assisting others
to provide assistance to those who may not be awakened by
the alarm sound, or to those who may be incapable of safely
evacuating the area unassisted.
