The Kidde Wireless Smoke Alarm enables families to quickly install an interconnected smoke alarm system throughout their home without the mess of rewiring or cost of labor. Interconnected smoke alarms provide an earlier warning to fire because they link together so that when one alarm sounds, they all sound. This provides more warning in more places, and gives families more time to escape.
This battery-powered alarm links with other alarms and components of the Kidde Wireless System to create a customized, advanced fire protection system. It even can be placed in a detached workshop or shed and linked into the home's system.
