Revolutionary Universal Smoke Sensing Technology
The Universal Security Instruments Hardwired MIC1509S 3-in-1 Smoke, Fire and Carbon Monoxide Smart Alarm provides 10 years of continuous protection against three deadly threats within the home. New patented Universal Smoke Sensing Technology offers the benefits of both photoelectric and ionization alarms in one device to protect against fast flaming and slow smoldering fires. This detector also features protection against the silent killer - carbon monoxide - making it a 3-in-1 device. The ideal addition for new or replacement installations, this maintenance-free alarm is suitable for houses, apartments and mobile homes in every room.
This USI Combination Alarm utilizes a sealed back-up battery (included) that will never have to be replaced throughout the life of the alarm, giving you a decade's worth in peace of mind even in the event of a power outage. Permanent Power battery backup also saves money from battery replacements (up to $38.00 over the 10-year life of the alarm), eliminates annoying low battery chirps and helps the environment by reducing environmental waste from disposed batteries. This alarm features microprocessor intelligence to completely eliminate nuisance alarms, a single silence/test button to quiet a non-hazardous alarm and an end-of-service life warning that sounds when it's time to replace the alarm (approximately 10-years from activation).
This USI Alarm conforms to UL217 and UL2034 standards. It is also California State Fire Marshal approved and Federal Housing Authority (FHA) approved to exceed industry standards. The Universal Security Instruments MIC1509S 3-in-1 Smoke, Fire and Carbon Monoxide Smart Alarm comes with a 10-year limited warranty that covers both the battery and alarm.
Warranty: 10 Year Limited Warranty on both Battery and Alarm
Alarm Power Source: 120 volt hardwired & 10 year alkaline battery backup
All of the smoke alarms in my house had expired. Several were out of service due to false readings. These were updated direct replacements. The only reason I gave a 4, instead of a 5 on this review is because, one of the models used in my home had updated, and it is more difficult than it should be to cross-reference to a newer model number. New installations wouldn't have that issue.

Nice looking units. Come with very nice paint shield installed that is easy to remove. Only negative is I liked the mounting base on my older USI smoke detectors better. They were stronger and deflected less when tightened and the screws from standard 4 octagon box fit the plate better.

Very easy to install. We had to replace the mounting plate by partially unscrewing 2 screws that did not have to be entirely removed. Next, turn the old plate and replace with the new mounting plate. Screw in the new plate, then plug in and attach the new unit.

Direct Replacement of 1990s Smoke Detector

Replaced two hard-wired vintage 1990 smoke directors with two new USI 3-in-1 hardwired smoke, fire and CO Alarms. All hardware was included with 3-wire plug to detector.

Very easy replacement of old alarm
Reviewed: 06/25/2019 by Joe Bass
Our 12 year old combination smoke and carbon dioxide detector finally quit working as evidenced by a repetitive chirping even after installing a new 9 volt battery so I went on a search for a compatible replacement. After googling my old unit it led me to USI's website where it listed this new unit for consideration. I was most concerned about minimizing the wiring changes needed since I would be perched on a 12 foot ladder and this unit used the exact same wiring harness which meant all I had to do was replace the plastic base that came with the unit and plug in the wiring connector. Working like a charm!
