Detection of polyurethane foam in both slow smoldering & fast flaming fires
Immunity to high-voltage current surges
The Universal Security Instruments AMIC1510SB 3-in-1 Sensing Plus® Hardwired Smoke, Fire & Carbon Monoxide Alarm provides 10 years of continuous protection against deadly threats in the home. New Sensing Plus® Multi-Criteria Detection provides the benefits of both photoelectric and ionization alarms in one device to protect against fast flaming and slow smoldering fires. This hardwired alarm also offers protection against the silent killer - carbon monoxide - making it a 3-in-1 detector. The ideal addition for new or replacement installations, this maintenance-free alarm is suitable for houses, apartments and mobile homes in every room. This 3-in-1 alarm includes a 10 year lithium free battery backup that will never have to be replaced throughout the life of the detector, giving you a decade's worth in peace of mind even in the event of a power outage.
10 Year Permanent Power 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 hardwired combination alarm features microprocessor intelligence that assists in completely eliminating 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 battery (approximately 10-years from activation).
Perfect for replacing existing Universal Security Instruments Alarms, this combination alarm features a large mounting base to cover imperfections in drywall and the option to replace retrofitting applications. The quick activation battery pull tab makes it easy to install while the deactivation key switches the combo alarm off and makes the batteries safe for disposal. Once the 3-in-1 combination alarm is deactivated, the tamper resistant feature turns on to prevent deactivated alarms from being reinstalled.
This hardwired smoke, fire & carbon monoxide alarm conforms to UL 217 Standard 8th Edition and UL 2034 Standard 4th Edition. The combination detector has also been approved by the California State Fire Marshal and Federal Housing Authority (FHA) to exceed industry standards. New Sensing Plus® Multi-Criteria Detection provides:
Resistance to False Alarms from Cooking.
Detection of Polyurethane Foam in both Slow Smoldering & Fast Flaming Fires.
Immunity to High-Voltage Current Surges.
For maximum protection, install an alarm inside every bedroom, outside every sleeping area and on all levels. The Universal Security Instruments AMIC1510SB 3-in-1 Sensing Plus® Smoke, Fire & Carbon Monoxide 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
Power Source: Hardwired

Q: How often should I replace the battery in my smoke, CO and natural gas alarms?
A: Many of our alarms come with a 10-year sealed Permanent Power battery that never needs replacing during the 10 year life of the alarm. Batteries in non sealed alarms should be replaced at least once a year or when the low battery signal sounds. Permanent Power battery technology helps keep you safe, because working smoke alarms are an important factor in surviving a home fire.
Q: What's the optimum placement of protection devices in my home?
A: Early detection of smoke, carbon monoxide, and natural gas is key to saving lives. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends installing a smoke alarm on every level of your home, including finished attics and basements. You are also encouraged to install a smoke detector inside every bedroom and at the top of certain stairways.
Q: Do I need four kinds of detectors or can one do it all?
A: You never know what kind of hazard will strike your home, or when. That's why we recommend technology that can detect carbon monoxide (CO) and natural gas as well as smoke and fire. You'll get the most protection from devices that can quickly and accurately detect and respond to a range of threats.
Q: What are "nuisance alarms"? Why are they a concern?
A: A smoke alarm that goes off when there's no emergency is annoying. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), such "nuisance alarms" are the leading reason why homeowners intentionally disable their smoke detectors. Yet doing so can be deadly. A survey conducted by the NFPA found that smoke alarms sounded in only half of the home fires reported to U.S. fire departments, and almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
Q: What is the difference between your AMIC1510SC and AMIC1510SB alarms?
A: The AMIC1510SB ("B" version) comes in easy open box packaging. The AMIC1510SC ("C" version) comes in blister card packaging. The only difference between these two models is the packaging.

Thank you USI!
We have had our new USI combo hard wired alarms installed for over a month now and we couldn't be happier! After YEARS of false alarms from our First Alert combo alarms, most often in the middle of the night with no perceptible triggers, we had grown weary and anxious. We decided to install new alarms and researched and found USI discussed in Consumer Reports. These alarms work well but have not been constantly triggered by shower steam from the bath or smells/smoke from cooking or a spider crawling on the lens. I'm finally able to go to sleep at night without anxiety that a false alarm will wake the whole house. The alarms DO work - when I really scorched something while cooking the alarm did go off - and was much easier to silence than our old ones. I'm glad I will not have to remember to replace the batteries every six months. My electrician asked me to let him know if they are good so he can recommend them to other clients so that's my next step. Meantime I can recommend them to anyone reading this review - they were money very well spent! I read that something like 70% of house fires involve disconnected fire alarms because people get tired of false alerts - save your family from potential tragedy by invested a few extra dollars not really, when you count the savings from a permanent battery in these excellent USI combo alarms.

Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detector
Excellent product. Easy to install. Great customer service. One alarm didn't work because the activation tab was somewhat pulled out. I called the company and a new one was immediately shipped to me.

USI Favorite Brand
I like the new USI dual Sensing Plus alarms. They can detect more types of fires and smoldering fires. They meet the New UL 217 8th Ed. Requirements which is great for resale. Hardwiring is easy with included pig tail for hardwiring. I needed several combination sensors with CO.

Invested in new detectors for whole house: hard wired smoke, smoke and CO with sealed battery backup, sealed battery smoke and CO. Had to rewire as different plug than older units. Took a few hours almost 20 units, but straightforward. Happy with decision, purchase, and products.

Installed and working great
I only had one combination alarm. The other 5 were smoke detectors. But this one installed as easily as the other alarms, and they have been in a week so far without any problems. I'm happy to have the added protection this combination detector provides. It had been recommended by my local fire department to replace my old alarms with smoldering fire and open flame alarms.
