How to Install First Alert 1042135 Onelink Hardwired Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms:
In this guide, we'll be showing you how to install First Alert Hardwired Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. Here are a few items you'll need before starting the installation process: Needle-nose pliers or utility knife, screwdriver, wire stripper, wire nuts and a ladder.
Hardwired Smoke or Carbon Monoxide Alarm Requirements:
- 120V household electrical circuit (unswitched 120VAC)
- Standard wiring junction box to a 4 in. (10 cm) size, on either the ceiling or wall
- Selecting an appropriate location to install your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms (see below guidelines for additional information):
- When installing an alarm on the wall, the top edge of an alarm should be placed between 4 in. (100 mm) and 12 in. (300 mm) from the wall/ceiling line.
- When installing an alarm on the ceiling, place the alarm as close to the center as possible.
- In either case, install the alarm at least 4 in. (100 mm) from where the wall and ceiling meet.

Connecting First Alert Hardwired Alarms to 120V Wiring
To begin, turn off power at the junction box and connect your alarm to the building's electrical wiring.
- Locate the junction box and turn off power
- Remove the power connector from the new alarm's packaging
- Using wire nuts, attach the hot (black), neutral (white), and interconnect (orange) wires
|Attach to black wire on power connector
|Attach to white wire on power connector
Standalone (single-station) alarm: This wire is not needed; tuck the orange wire into the junction box.
- Strip 1/2 in. from the orange wire on the connector
- Use a wire nut to attach it to the orange wire in the junction box (see image below).
Mounting First Alert Hardwired Alarms
- Secure the mounting bracket to the ceiling or wall using screws (included in the package)
- Insert the power connector into the plug on the back of your alarm
- Tuck any hanging wires into the junction box
- Position the base of the alarm onto the bracket and turn it clockwise until it's secured
- Remove the pull-tab to activate the backup battery
Installing Additional and/or Interconnecting First Alert Hardwired Alarms
If you are installing more smoke or carbon monoxide alarms, you'll want to repeat the process throughout the building. Interconnected smoke and co alarms must meet all requirements:
The same fuse or circuit breaker must power all interconnected alarms.
Up to 18 compatible detectors can interconnect, with a limit of 12 smoke alarms.
The total length of wire interconnecting the alarms should be less than 1,000 ft. (300 meters). This type of wire is commonly available at hardware and electrical supply stores.
All wiring must conform to all local electrical codes and NFPA 70 (NEC). Refer to NFPA 72, NFPA 101, and your local building code for more information.

If you have any doubts or reservations about these interconnect requirements, please contact an experienced electrician to install your wiring and hardwired alarms.
Restoring Power and Testing Hardwired Alarms
Once you've installed your hardwired alarms, you'll want to restore power to the junction box. Under regular operation, the power indicator light on the alarm will shine/blink to indicate that it is receiving AC power.
Here's how you can test standalone or interconnected alarms:
Standalone Alarms: Press and hold the Test/Silence button until the unit triggers an alarm.
Interconnected Alarms: Press and hold the Test/Silence button until the first unit triggers an alarm. All interconnected detectors should sound off. Repeat this process to test each alarm in the interconnected series.
Q: What features can I use if Wi-Fi goes out?
A: You will be able to use the alarm functions and bluetooth streaming from a device - Alexa functionality and receiving push notifications require a Wi-Fi connection.
Q: How do I install a First Alert Hardwired Smoke & CO Alarm?
- Switch off the circuit breaker for the area where you'll be installing the Smart Smoke + CO Alarm.
- Install the new mounting bracket.
- Use the included easy adapter to plug your alarm into your home's AC power.
- Hold the alarm firmly against the mounting bracket.
- Twist the alarm clockwise until it can't be turned further. You will hear a single loud chirp when mounting is successful. This means the backup battery has been activated.
- Switch your circuit breaker back on.
- Check the alarm. It will pulse blue when it's activated and ready to pair with your mobile device.
Q: Can I turn off the night light feature?
A: The LED lights on the Onelink alarm not only provide a nice glow to light up your route, but they also indicate that the alarm is receiving AC power. You can adjust the brightness level of the nightlight through the Onelink app. When you disable the nighlight two LEDs will glow green on the Onelink alarm letting you know that you have AC power. If the LED is turned off, it indicates your alarm is running off of battery backup.
Q: Why can't I change my nightlight color to red in the Onelink Home App?
A: The color red has been reserved for smoke and carbon monoxide emergencies as well as Alexa privacy mode.
Q: Will the Onelink Safe & Sound work with my other smart detectors?
A: The Onelink Safe & Sound will interconnect with most hardwired smoke and CO alarms. This includes all BRK and First Alert alarms and most Kidde, Fyrnetics, Lifesaver and Firex alarms.
Q: What is the distance you need to be within to interact with the Onelink Safe & Sound?
A: You need to be within 15 feet.
Q: Does the Onelink Safe & Sound require rewiring?
A: Included with the Onelink Safe & Sound are easy adaptor plugs, so you do not have to rewire to install your alarm.
Q: Does this device support Alexa?
A: Alexa voice services are not supported, so you can't talk to Alexa with this unit. However, if you have an Echo or similar Alexa-enabled device, you can use Onelink Alexa skills to check in on your detector. The nightlight on the hardwired alarm can also be controlled with Alexa.
Q: Does this product require professional installation?
A: The Onelink Safe & Sound is meant to be a DIY installation. To install, simply remove your current alarm and bracket and install the Onelink Safe & Sound. The app will guide you through the process. Included with the Onelink Safe & Sound are easy adaptor plugs, so you do not have to rewire to install your alarm.
Q: I just installed my Smart Smoke & CO Alarm. Why does it keep beeping and chirping?
A: Sometimes, alarms may beep or "chirp" to let you know that something isn't right. A chirp is quieter and more intermittent than a regular alarm. Chirping is typically caused by improper mounting, a low battery, or alarm end-of-life.
