Kidde P19000 Battery-Operated Dual Ionization and Photoelectric Sensor Smoke Alarm
This product will protect your home against flaming and smoldering fires. Flaming fires are from flammable materials while smoldering fires are those from smoking materials such as unattended cigarettes. Your home needs protection from both types of dangers, as per the advice of several Fire authorities and experts. Kidde P19000 Battery-Operated Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm protects you from both types of fires because it combines photoelectric and ionization sensing technologies. The Photoelectric sensor will trigger the alarm if visible and larger fire particles are detected while the ionization smoke sensors will activate the alarm if smaller and less visible fire particles are present. Both these sensors have passed the standards set by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 217.
The unit has a test feature and an LED indicator which allow you to see if the alarm is working. Periodically testing the alarm’s horn and circuitry is possible by pushing the test/reset button. To silence nuisance alarms, the device has its trademarked Hush feature. When the Hush button is pushed, a chirping sound is heard every 30 to 40 seconds. The alarm will be reset after seven minutes.
This dual sensor alarm is powered by a 9-volt battery to provide you with continuous operation and protection. For safety purposes, there is also a low battery power warning which chirps every 30 to 40 seconds. The warning goes on for seven days until you change the battery.
Dual-Sensor Technology for Improved Protection
The double sensors will protect your home from less visible as well as visible fires. The ionization sensor will protect you from visible, fast flaming fires like flammable liquids and cooking related fires.
