It was very easy to replace the old Smoke Detector with this model replacement. Two screws and three wires. Works Well.

Reviewer: Edward Stumetz
My home had the USI-1204 previously installed when built, after discovering they work in sequence together I couldn't find the original in stock. I called USI and was informed that the USI-1204HA will work as a perfect replacement. USI has great service representation, fast shipping and a reliable product!

Reviewer: Michael Jones
Mine were expired so changed all 5. Smoke detector portion installed into old bases so it was a quick and easy job. Only complaint is the old bases are more of a beige color and the new ones are an off white. All in all not a big deal. Who looks at your smoke detectors anyway?

Replaced all smoke detectors in my house, wanted same ones we had before for easy installation. Great experience, nice price just wish shipping would have been quicker. Would like to be able to recycle old detectors if possible.

Reviewer: Scott Boydman
This ionization detector was selected for compatibility with existing mounting plate for expired 10 year old Alarm USI-1208. I used my own 10-year lithium battery in place of the alkaline battery provided. If you have a compatible mounting plate already installed, this alarm is a simple and inexpensive plug and play replacement.

We needed to replace a smoke detector in our home and we were able to locate the exact same model from Universal Security Instruments, Inc. Very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend this company to anyone. Thanks Universal.

Reviewer: Tiffany Harradine Sinn
Customer Service was very helpful in directing me toward the new model that replaced the detectors I currently have. I like that it is hardwired and battery back-up. Ideally, I would have liked it to be an ionization alarm and a photoelectric alarm.

Q: WHY DOES MY SMOKE ALARM 'CHIRP' APPROXIMATELY ONCE EVERY MINUTE?
A: The smoke alarm chirps to indicate a "low battery" condition, meaning the battery needs to be replaced. Battery powered smoke alarms will chirp a minimum of 30 days before the battery completely loses power.

AC powered smoke alarms with battery backup will chirp indefinitely assuming AC power is present; if battery power is low, or battery is removed; until a fresh battery is installed. Approved replacement batteries are listed on the back of each smoke alarm and in the user's manual.

Certain model smoke alarms with a silence button (designed to silence the alarm during a nuisance alarm) may chirp to indicate the smoke alarm is in the silence mode. The chirp will stop after approximately 8 minutes and the smoke alarm will return to its normal operation.




Q: WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN THE RED LIGHT ON THE ALARM FLASHES APPROXIMATELY ONCE EVERY MINUTE?
A: The flashing red light gives a visual indication that the smoke detector is functioning properly. It also indicates a working battery is connected to the smoke alarm.




Q: WHAT DOES THE CONTINUOUS GREEN LIGHT ON MY SMOKE ALARM INDICATE?
A: When a green light is present on your smoke detector, it means that AC power is currently operating the alarm.




Q: THE GREEN LIGHT ON MY SMOKE ALARM HAS GONE OUT, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
A: If the green light on your smoke detector is not on, it means the AC power has been interrupted to the alarm. Check the circuit breaker and AC wiring to make sure power is still reaching the smoke alarm.




Q: HOW CAN I TELL WHICH SMOKE ALARM IN A MULTI-STATION SYSTEM INITIATED THE ALARM?
A: When interconnected alarms are alarming, the smoke alarm which initiated the alarm, either by test button or sensing smoke, will flash the red LED light approximately once per second. The red LED light on the other non-initiated interconnected smoke detectors will not be lit but will sound the alarm.




Q: HOW MANY SMOKE ALARMS OR DEVICES CAN BE INTERCONNECT AT ONE TIME?
A: The NFPA 72 standard states the interconnect limit is 12 smoke alarms and up to 6 other alarms (heat alarms or carbon monoxide detectors) for a total of 18 total alarms. With 18 alarms interconnected, up to an additional 6 relay modules may be interconnected (for a maximum of 24 devices).

If battery backup alarms and non-battery backup alarms and accessories are mixed in an interconnect system, all devices without battery backup WILL NOT operate during an AC power failure.

CAUTION: USI alarms and accessories should only be interconnected with other USI alarms and accessories. Connecting devices from another manufacturer to USI devices may result in nuisance alarms, failure to alarm, or damage to one or all of the devices in the interconnect system. All interconnected USI alarms should be powered by the same fuse or circuit breaker. Smoke alarms shall not receive their power from a circuit that is protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter. Improper connection will result in damage to the alarm, failure to operate, or a shock hazard.
