Dimension

It has dimension of 5.7 x 5.7 x 2 inches that weights 0.66 pounds.

LED indicator

This 3-color LED indicator delivers even, anti-glare light that won’t become a nuisance when you’re trying to sleep. You can determine the alarm’s working status by the color of the LED indicator.

Sensor

Integrating the most advanced photoelectric sensor, this smoke alarm quickly detects dangerous smoke levels from slow-burning, smoldering fires, and provides the earliest possible warning of fire while minimizing false alarms; monitors day and night, 24/7, keeping you in control of every fire situation

Noise

Our 85 dB alarm is loud enough to alert all members in the household, even for those with impaired hearing and/or in deep sleep. The buzzer surface is coated with an anti-oxidation layer, so it is unlikely to be corroded and oxidized by corrosive gases in the air, retaining the sound quality of the alarm for its lifetime.

Mounting

When the smoke alarm is properly mounted onto the mounting bracket, the smoke alarm will automatically activate upon installation.

Setup – X-Sense Smoke Alarm with Escape Light SD01

Here some direction how help you speed up your installation. you’ll need these Tools:

  • Drill
  • Drill Bit (6mm or 15/64)
  • hammer/mallet
  • Philip screw
  • Pencil or something to mark with.
  • Safety glass

1) Use the plate as a guide and find where you want to mount the smoke detector. Use a pencil and fill in the 3 holes in the plate to make yourself a guide hole for drilling on the wall.
2) Put the plate away and use a 6 mm or 15/64 drill bit and drill the pencil mark holes. Make sure to wear a safety glass to protect your eyes from the debris .
3) Insert the anchors in the new drill holes. If you push the anchor as deep as you can before pounding it with a hammer/mallet, it works much better.
4) Align the plate with new holes and screw in the 3 screws.
5) Test fit the smoke detector on the plate, if not, figure which screws aren’t flush in.
6) remove smoke detector and turn it to ON position.

simple to install, Smoke Detector works as advertised

Just finish installing this smoke alarm. Pretty simple and straight forward. 20 minutes tops. Unit itself works well, pretty loud and LED light is pretty good, not SUPER bright that will blind you but enough to shine a light. Will put a update review after using it for 6 months.

First Alert SCO7CN

Smoke Sensor Type: Photoelectric | Battery-Powered or Hardwired: 2xAA Batteries
Voice and siren when the alarm is triggeredVery loud sirenIntegrated CO sensorCan be a little more work to programNo option to link to other alarms

If you are looking for a great battery-powered smoke detector, then we highly recommend the First Alert SC07CN. This combination smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm is quick and easy to install and gives both a spoken call to evacuate and a traditional siren. It can also tell you the maximum amount of carbon monoxide detected after an alarm has been triggered (in parts per million/ppm), and it has an incredibly loud alarm.

However, the First Alert SC07CN doesn’t have too many advanced features. It can’t be linked with other alarms to create an interconnected system, and it doesn’t have an escape light. It also requires a little more effort during the initial setup, as the programming process to set the alarm’s location is far from intuitive. Altogether, this is one of our favorite battery-powered alarms out there and is an excellent choice if you need a dual smoke/carbon monoxide alarm that will let you know the location of the alarm.
