My house has 3 hard wired smoke detectors, BRK 1839WM. The house is about
10 years old. I was going to replace them, however, the house also has 2
wire Edwards Signaling heat detectors, model 283B, in the garage. As far
as I can determine the heat detectors do not have an audio alarm. Thus they
be connected to the smoke detectors. My guess is the 2 wires in the head
detector are connected to the interconnect and neutral.
I think the heat detector shorts the 2 wires when the heat reaches 135
degF. Is that what the smoke detectors are looking for - a short between
the interconnect wire and neutral? Will the new smoke detectors work with
these heat detectors?
thanks in advance,
