About this Product
The BRK SC7010B smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is a state-of-the-art hardwired combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm that serves multiple purposes in your home. This BRK combination smoke alarm works great as a standard smoke alarm with advanced photoelectric sensing that works smarter to ensure you get fewer false alarms. In addition to smoke sensing, the BRK SC7010B smoke and carbon Monoxide alarm detects carbon monoxide levels in the room; alerting you if levels are unsafe. The BRK SC 7010B incorporates a convenient 85db Spread Spectrum horn tone which alternates deeper frequencies which are easier for those who may be experiencing hearing difficulty or loss.
When the BRK SC7010B smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is interconnected to one of the 18 available connections, you can easily identify if this alarm has initiated the system with an Initiating Alarm latch. Once activated, the latch will trigger, causing the connected alarms to sound. Inside the alarm is a backup battery compartment in case of power loss with a green power indication light.
The BRK SC7010B smoke and CO alarm utilizes the advanced 360 OptiPath technology which has improved detection ability near wall and ceilings where other alarms may have difficulties detecting properly. It meets new construction requirements.

Questions & Answers
Is the battery charge being used (drained) while in back up mode? That is, as long as there is utility power do the batteries retain their full charge?
The battery backup of the BRK SC7010B would only be used when there is a power outage. When power is restored it will go back to using the hardwired power supply.
Would this BRK model be effective for both smoke and CO detection for 10 years?
All smoke alarms and CO alarms have a life of 5-7 years!This product also come with a 5 year limited warranty from BRK.
When the smoke alarms say they interconnect and all sound when one goes off, do they interconnect solely thru being hardwired into the power in the house or do they need to be wired to each other directly? Also, is there a place that explains which models interconnect with this model?
To interconnect the units you need to connect the "interconnect" wire to the junction box. Do this for each unit. A far as seeing which units are compatible with this model you can visit www.brkelectronics.com and use their cross reference guide.
I would like to know if I can use (1) BRK SC7010B 120V Hardwired Photoelectric Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup with (5) BRK 3120B 120V 60H AC Photo/Ion Smoke Alarm with Battery Back-up.They will all be hardwired on the same wiring. I know you can do smoke alarms, just am not sure about the CO2/ smoke. Thank you. Jeff Bream
Interconnect units within a single family residence only. Otherwise all households will experience unwanted alarms when you test any unit in the series. Interconnected units will only work if they are wired to compatible units and all requirements are met. A maximum of 18 compatible units may be interconnected (Maximum of 12 Smoke Alarms). They must be all on the same breaker for power.
