PI2000, 120V, AC dual sensor smoke alarm, wire in with 9V battery back up that provides continuous protection against smoke & fire hazards, even during power outages, combination of ionization & photoelectric sensors offer the best protection against both fast flaming & slow smoldering fires. This product adds a great value. Product is highly durable and very easy to use. This product is manufactured in china.
The Kidde PI2010 Battery-Operated Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm combines photoelectric and ionization sensing technologies into one unit to offer broad detection against smoldering and flaming fires. Experts recommend that for optimal protection you have both types of sensing technology in your home. This smoke alarm's trademarked Hush feature allows you to silence nuisance alarms, while an indicator LED and test feature let you easily confirm that the alarm is working.
Experts divide home fires into two groups: flaming and smoldering. Flaming fires result from flammable liquids and cooking accidents, while smoldering fires most often occur when smoking materials, such as cigarettes, are left unattended. Ionization smoke sensors may detect smaller, less visible fire particles, like those produced by flaming fires, sooner than photoelectric sensors. However, photoelectric sensors are may detect larger, more visible fire particles, such as those produced by smoldering fires, sooner than ionization sensors. Each must pass identical performance standards to obtain third-party approval and meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 217, the independent standard to which alarms are listed. Because you don't know what type of fire you will have in your home, experts recommend installing both types of technology for optimal protection.
Experts Recommend Protection from Both Types of Fires
Virtually every recognized fire authority recommends the installation of both ionization and photoelectric alarms in order to maximize protection from either flaming or smoldering fires. Kidde offers photoelectric smoke alarms, ionization smoke alarms, and dual sensor alarms, which combine both technologies in one unit. Regardless of the technology, the most important thing is to ensure that you have working smoke alarms on every floor of your home, inside each bedroom and outside sleeping areas. Studies show placing alarms in both bedrooms and hallways could increase a family's escape time by up to 15 minutes.
Fire Authorities recommending both smoke alarm technologies:
Trademarked Hush Feature for Convenience
By pressing the Hush button, you can easily and safely silence nuisance alarms caused by non-emergency situations, such as overcooked dinners.
This feature desensitizes the alarm for approximately seven minutes. During this time, the alarm chirps every 30 to 40 seconds. If the smoke is too dense, the Hush feature is overridden and the alarm still sounds, and the alarm automatically resets at the end of the seven minutes. This convenient safety measure eliminates the temptation to remove the alarm's battery, which creates an unsafe situation.
Wire-in Smoke Alarm with Reliable 9-Volt Battery Backup, Indicator LED, and Test Feature
Because a smoke alarm only helps protect you if it's working, this unit features a red LED that flashes every 30 to 40 seconds to indicate that it is operating correctly. For additional peace of mind, the alarm contains a test/reset button that enables you to periodically test its circuitry and horn.
The PI2010 is a wire-in smoke alarm with 9V battery backup, which provides continuous protection against smoke and fire hazards even during power outages. The unit offers a low battery warning that issues a brief chirp every 30 to 40 seconds for at least seven days before losing power, letting you know it's time to change the battery.
The unit measures just 5.75 inches in diameter and 1.8 inches deep, and it features a neutral, white finish. It features tamper resist features to deter vandalism or theft.
This dual-sensor smoke alarm is UL listed, so you can be confident of its quality, and it is backed by a 10-year limited warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
Batteries all tested fine on a volt meter, both at install and at disconnection after a false alarm. Getting to the battery is a pain, and not to be attempted without a prying tool to open the compartment (fingernails are not adequate).
Apparently, I should have stuck with my single sensor units and not listened to the advice about getting dual sensor alarms to protect against both types of fires. This was a lot of money to spend on defective technology. My environment is clean and without detectors being located near the kitchen. Each of the defective units was located in a different upstairs bedroom. I now live with ear protectors a prying tool and a step stool at the ready so that I can remove offending detectors with a minimum of running around when they decide to trip. The alarms are new, are not around dust or smoke of any kind, and are located in stable areas.
Does anyone make a reliable dual sensor hardwired alarm? I would prefer not having a battery backup, as this introduces yet another variable into the mix. I have a whole house standby generator for power outages, so having the battery backup is not necessary. I would welcome suggestions for replacements. It seems clear that they will all fail or be unreliable in short order, calling into question whether they would work when needed.
I now have two detectors permanently offline, as they will trip upon reconnection, meaning I have two areas without sensors while I try to find a suitable replacement for ALL detectors which will perform as they should. This was an expensive and irritating conversion, which I greatly regret. Based on my experience and the many reviews here which speak to the high failure rates, I cannot imagine how these units have not been redesigned or replaced with units which work properly. If you like to gamble with your safety and sanity, you will enjoy having these in your home.
Kidde has been great about swapping the units having false alarms out with new units. At this point with 30% of the units having repeated false alarms, our time together is done. I ordered a couple of Nest Protects to test after the false alarm yesterday. Unless the Nest is horrible, I'm going to replace all of these units. Ironically even though the Nest is 3x as expensive, if they don't have repeatedly false alarms, the Next could prove to be less expensive over time per year as the Kidde have cost me $15/year for the 2 years we've spent together. Listening to my 4-year-old shriek with alarm over a false alarm is something I don't want to repeat.
Update 7/19/2016- I decided to just replace two of the Kidde units with the Nest (the one in my daughter's room and the one near the stove.) So far no further false alarms.
Update 9/29/2016- No further false alarms. The Kidde units seem to have a high initial mortality rate. Once I got rid of the 30% of the alarms that were having false alarms all seems well.
