Anyone know of a dual sensor, hardwired, & interconnected (wireless) smoke
Which sensor type is more likely to go off for nuisance alarms: the ion or
photo sensor type?
A main consideration is how to hardwire one of these if all you already have
is a hardwired ceiling mounted light fixture right next to where you want to
mount the smoke alarm, but nothing else - that is, not yet anyway. I am no
pro contractor, but I could do it myself no problem. What do you need to do
wrt making it look and function as legal and safe (as need be) by running
directly off a nearby light fixture (with it's in ceiling wires)? String a
wire, under the ceiling drywall or over, need to cut a oct box into the
ceiling, hard-shield the wires, etc., what?
I bought a Kidde Pi9000CA dual sensor smoke alarm (ion & photo) that runs on
a (std. alkaline) 9V battery only. It has HUSH and TEST buttons. I am not
too concerned about not having either the interconnected (wireless) feature
or the hardwired features simply because you cannot get it with both of
these features at the same time; either is a bonus, but both is the only way
