An essential device designed to protect you and your family from the dangers of carbon monoxide in your home, the Kidde KN-COP-IC carbon monoxide alarm can be installed on the surface of any wall or ceiling and hardwired into your home’s electrical system. It also offers a digital display that shows the current carbon monoxide (CO) level at a glance as well as a battery backup. With an increasing number of state and local governments passing legislation requiring CO detectors in homes, it’s never been a better time to safeguard your family against carbon monoxide exposure.
The hardwired Kidde KN-COP-IC carbon monoxide alarm.
Easily mounts to ceilings or walls, and it provides a digital display and battery backup.
The AC wire-in Kidde KN-COP-IC carbon monoxide alarm offers multiple contractor-friendly features to ensure easy installation and minimal troubleshooting. It can be installed on any standard single gang electrical box (up to a 4-inch octagon junction box), and it features a snap-on electrical harness for quick installation and an adjustable mounting bracket for perfect alignment. The unit also includes a smart interconnect system with up to 24 Kidde devices, including smoke alarms. When interconnected, it can sound its carbon monoxide alarm pattern as well as sound a different alarm pattern when a Kidde smoke alarm is in alarm mode.
It features three color LEDs for at-a-glance status updates. A green LED lights constantly when AC power is present, and it flashes every 7 seconds when in battery mode. An amber LED illuminates during a CO incident, while a red LED flashes in unison with the audible alert for both a smoke or CO incident. A digital display allows constant monitoring of carbon monoxide levels and updates every 15 seconds to let you know if levels change. The peak level memory feature displays the highest CO level measured since the last reset. A battery-backup system (powered by included 9-volt battery) provides continuous monitoring of carbon monoxide levels even during a power failure. It has a seven-year operating life and is backed by a five-year limited warranty.
