Kidde FireX™ AC Hardwired Combination Carbon Monoxide & Photoelectric Smoke Alarm KN-COPE-IC


Data Sheet | User Guide EN | User Guide SPA

The Kidde Front-Loading Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm (part # 21007624) offers protection from two hazards – fire and CO – in one unit. Sold under the FireX brand, this AC-wire with battery backup alarm emits a beeping tone followed by a voice warning that clearly announces the danger by saying, “Fire! Fire!” or “Warning! Carbon Monoxide!”. The uniquely designed frontloading battery compartment makes battery replacement quick and easy, and ensures proper installation. Manufactured with photoelectric sensors for detecting smoke and fire, this alarm also includes the world’s most accurate CO sensing technology based on claims by major manufacturers. 10-Year Life: “If your CO alarm was manufactured prior to 2013, it does not have a 10 year life. Consult your User Guide for additional details.

Alarm Warnings

  • Fire:

    The red LED will flash and be accompanied by three long alarm beeps followed by a verbal warning message “FIRE! FIRE!”. The alarm will repeat pattern until unit is reset or smoke is eliminated.

  • Carbon Monoxide:

    Four short alarm beeps followed by a verbal warning “WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE!” This continues until the unit is reset or the CO is eliminated.

  • Low Battery:

    One chirp followed by warning “LOW BATTERY”. The red LED light will flash. This pattern will continue every minute for the first hour. After the first hour the red LED light will flash once every minute accompanied by the chirp sound. The “LOW BATTERY” warning will only sound once every fifteen minutes.

  • Voice Hush Indication:

    “HUSH ACTIVATED” and “HUSH CANCELLED” voice announcement

  • Alarm Memory:

    The green LED will blink once every 16 seconds to alert a user when the unit has alarmed for smoke or has detected a concentration of CO. If the alarm has detected a CO level of 100ppm or greater, when the Test/Reset button is pressed the unit will announce “CO PREVIOUSLY DETECTED”. If the alarm has detected abnormal levels of smoke since its last test, it will produce three rapid beeps.

Installation of Smoke Alarm

The combination alarm should be installed to comply with all local codes having jurisdiction in your area, Article 760 of the National Electric Code, and NFPA 72. Make certain all alarms are wired to a single, continuous (non-switched) power line, which is not protected by a ground fault interrupter. A maximum of 1000 ft. of wire can be used in the interconnect system. Use standard UL listed household wire (18 gauge or larger as required by local codes).

Key Features

  • AC-Wire with battery backup - Powered by home’s electricity in order to provide continuous protection. An included 9V battery protects during short-term power outages.

  • Front-Loading Battery - Speeds up replacement by eliminating the need to remove the unit from the ceiling or wall.

  • Unique Battery Door Design - Will not close if battery is not installed properly.

  • Voice Warning - Supplements warning from the traditional 85-decibel alarm by clearly stating the danger present, fire or carbon monoxide.

  • Photoelectric smoke sensor - May detect visible fire particles associated with slow smoldering fires sooner than an ionization sensor.

  • Electrochemical CO sensor - Provides accurate and continual CO protection during the product’s life, remains stable during temperature and humidity changes and resists reactions to household gases that may cause false readings or reduce sensitivity.

  • Smart Touch Button - One button performs the following functions:

    • Activates the Hush® feature to temporarily silence nuisance alarms (will announce “Hush mode activated,” or “Hush mode cancelled.”)

    • Simultaneously tests the unit’s electronics and verifies proper operation

    • Activates the peak level memory feature (will announce, “CO previously detected” if unit has detected levels of 100 ppm or higher)

    • Resets the unit during a CO alarm (Unit will re-enter alarm within 6 minutes of reset if 70ppm or more of CO is present).

    • Silences a low battery chirp for up to 12 hours

    • Silences the end of life chirp for two days

    • Announces, “CARBON MONOXIDE PREVIOUSLY DETECTED” if alarm has detected a CO level of 100ppm or higher since it was last reset.

    • Silences nuisance alarms for approximately 9 minutes. (Smoke must be present before HushTM is activated)

  • Tamper Resistant

  • Green LED - Will flash every 30 seconds to indicate proper operation.

  • Red LED – Flashes in conjunction with the alarm sounding.

  • End of Life Signal - Ten years after initial power, the unit will “chirp” twice every 30 seconds to indicate the need to immediately replace the alarm.

  • Low Battery Signal - Will chirp every minute and red LED will flash to indicate low battery condition.

  • Interconnectable - Will interconnect with up to 24 other devices (18 of which can be initiating) including smoke, CO and heat alarms.
