Features and General Information
NFPA 72 states: Life safety from fire in residential occupancies is
based primarily on early notification to occupants of the need to
escape, followed by the appropriate egress 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, too old or 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. Ionization 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 smoldering
fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Home fires develop in
different ways and are often unpredictable. For maximum
protection, Kidde recommends that both Ionization 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.
• 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.

Installation Instructions
Step 1
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 Safety recommends the installation of a Smoke 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. 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 center 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) below the
ceiling (see figure 1).

Sloped Ceiling Installation:
The following information is from the National Fire Protection
Association and is listed in Fire Code 72.
Install Smoke Alarms on sloped, peaked or cathedral ceilings at,
or within 3 ft (0.9m) of the highest point (measured horizontally).
NFPA 72 states “Smoke alarms in rooms with ceiling slopes
greater than 1 ft to 8 ft (.3 m-2.4 m) horizontally shall be located
on the high side of the room”.
NFPA 72 states “A row of alarms shall be spaced and located
within 3 ft (0.9 m) of the peak of the ceiling measured
horizontally” (see figure 2).
Install Smoke Alarms on tray-shaped ceilings (coffered ceilings)
on the highest portion of the ceiling or on the sloped portion of
the ceiling within 30.5 cm (12”) vertically down from the highest
point (see figure 2).
Mobile Homes:
Modern mobile homes have been designed and built to be
energy efficient. Install Smoke alarms as recommended above
(refer to Recommended Installation Instructions and figure 1).

Smoke HUSH Control Feature
The HUSH feature has the capability of temporarily desensitizing
the smoke alarm circuit for approximately 9 minutes. This feature
is to be used only when a known alarm condition, such as smoke
from cooking, activates the alarm. When the unit is in alarm,You
can put your Smoke Alarm in HUSH mode by pushing the
test/reset button. If the smoke is not too dense, the alarm will
silence immediately, and the green LED will flash every 2 seconds
for approximately 9 minutes. This indicates that the smoke alarm
is in a temporarily desensitized condition. Your Smoke Alarm will
automatically reset after approximately 9 minutes. When the unit
returns to normal operation after being in HUSH mode, it will
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.

What To Do If The Alarm Sounds
NEVER IGNORE THE SOUND OF THE ALARM! 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. 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.
• Leave immediately using one of your planned escape routes
(see page 26). 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.
• Go to your predetermined meeting place. When two people
have arrived one should leave to call 911 from a neighbor’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 as stated in the NFPA
Standard 72. For instance:
a) smoking in bed
b) leaving children unsupervised
c) cleaning with flammable liquids, such as gasoline
Fire Departments, most utility companies and HVAC contractors
will perform smoke alarm inspections, some may charge for this
service. It’s advisable to inquire about any applicable fees prior to
having the service performed. Kidde Safety will not pay for, or
reimburse, the owner or user of this product, for any repair or
dispatch calls related to the alarm sounding.

General Maintenance
To keep your Smoke Alarm in good working order, please follow
these simple steps:
• Verify the unit's alarm and LED lights operation by pushing the
test/reset button once a week.
• Remove the unit from mounting bracket and vacuum the
alarm cover and vents with a soft brush attachment once a
month to remove dust and dirt. REINSTALL IMMEDIATELY
AFTER CLEANING AND THEN TEST USING THE TEST/RESET
BUTTON!
• Never use detergents or other solvents to clean the unit.
• Avoid spraying air fresheners, hair spray, or other aerosols near
the Smoke Alarm.
Do not paint the unit. Paint will seal the vents and interfere with
the sensor’s ability to detect smoke . Never attempt to
disassemble the unit or clean inside. This action will void your
warranty.
Move the Smoke 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 sensor from damage. Do not place near a diaper
pail.
! WARNING: Reinstall the Smoke Alarm as soon as possible
to assure continuous protection.

Fire Safety Information
Escape Plan
Familiarize everyone with the sound of the smoke alarm and train
them to leave the home when they hear it. Practice a fire drill at
least every six months, including fire drills at night. Ensure that
small children hear the alarm and wake when it sounds. They must
wake up in order to execute the escape plan. Practice allows all
occupants to test your plan before an emergency. You may not be
able to reach your children. It is important they know what to do.
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 911 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!
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.
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.

Industry Safety Standards
NFPA (National Fire
Protection Association)
For your information, the
National
Fire
Protection
Association’s Standard 72, reads
as follows:
Smoke
Detection.
Where
required by applicable laws,
codes, or standards for the
specified occupancy, approved
single- and multiple-station
smoke alarms shall be installed
as follows: (1) In all sleeping
rooms. (2) Outside of each
separate sleeping area, in
immediate vicinity of the
sleeping rooms. (3) On each level
of the dwelling unit, including
basements Exception: In existing one- and two-family dwelling units,
approved smoke alarms powered by batteries are permitted.
Smoke Detection - Are More Smoke Alarms Desirable? The required
number of smoke alarms might not provide reliable early warning
protection for those areas separated by a door from the areas
protected by the required smoke alarms. For this reason, it is
recommended that the householder consider the use of additional
smoke alarms for those areas for increased protection. The additional
areas include the basement, bedrooms, dining room, furnace room,
utility room, and hallways not protected by the required smoke
alarms. The installation of smoke alarms in kitchens, attics (finished
or unfinished), or garages is not normally recommended, as these
locations occasionally experience conditions that can result in
improper operation.
California State Fire Marshall
Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire
detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the household as
follows: A smoke alarm installed in each separate sleeping area (in
the vicinity, but outside the bedrooms), heat or smoke detectors in
the living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, hallways, attics,
furnace rooms, closets, utility and storage rooms, basements and
attached garages.
