The First Alert Hardwired Smoke Alarm with Battery Backup and photoelectric sensor is designed to meet new building code while reducing common 'nuisance' alarms. This makes it an excellent choice for installation in kitchens, near fireplaces, or in hallways outside bathrooms, utility rooms, and other areas prone to steam that may accidentally set off other alarms. The Photoelectric sensor featured in this smoke alarm is more efficient in detecting slow and smoldering fires which smolder for hours before bursting into flame. This alarm also has Optipath 360 technology which provides 360 degrees of direct access to the smoke sensor. The single test/silence button silences a non-threatening alarm or low battery warning and allows you to test the unit's functionality. This smoke detector also comes with a locking feature for tamper resistance which makes it a great choice for hotel/motel application.First Alert Photoelectric Smoke Alarm 7010BRecommended replacement for the following obsolete models:BRK 2002RAC

I was replacing the detectors because they were old. It was simple. Unplug the old and plug in the new. No wiring required.

I had a problem with the smoke alarm going off when no smoke from kitchen. I replaced the old detector with the new type and so far, no false alarms.
I appreciate the support I was given - 08/05/2016

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.
