Your family is more at risk from a house fire then another earth quake or hurricane!

Fires are the most destructive disaster a families face. Adding interconnected smoke detectors to older homes use to be costly. Not to mention damaging to your home. For that reason my homeowner choose to live without protection.

We have homes in Philadelphia with cloth covered Knob and Tube wires from the 1930's. This type of wiring is an added fire risk. Yet, these home that are also missing smoke detectors.

Now with some of the new wireless battery backup device we can help you protect your families at a fraction of the cost add new wires. When you lower your risk of fire you may even be able to save on homeowners insurance.




STEP 1 - Determine the type of smoke alarms currently installed in your house.

Battery Powered
No wires; runs only on batteries.

Hardwired
Runs on your home's electricity and may have battery backup. Only one alarm sounds when test button is pressed.

Interconntected
Runs on your home's electricity and may have battery backup. All alarms sound when one test button is pressed.


STEP 2 - Decide how many alarms you need in your home.

The NFPA recommends at least one smoke alarm on every level of the home and in every sleeping area.

STEP 3 - Based on your home's current alarm set-up, decide whch Kidde Wireless alarms to purchase.

a. If your home has only battery powered alarms:
Purchase enough Kidde Wireless Battery Powered Smoke Alarms to replace all of your current smoke alarms. You will also have the ability to add Kidde Wireless Battery Powered Alarms in additional rooms for expanded coverage.

b. If your home has only hardwired smoke alarms:
Purchase enough Kidde Wireless AC Powered Smoke Alarms to replace all of your current smoke alarms. You will also have the ability to add Kidde Wireless Battery Powered Alarms in additional rooms for expanded coverage.

c. If your home has interconnected smoke alarms:
Purchase one Kidde Wireless AC Powered Smoke Alarms to replace one current smoke alarm. Kidde Wireless Battery Powered Alarms can then be installed in additional rooms .
