PLEASE CHECK BEFORE PURCHASING: that your home has the required electrical box configuration
In-wall Electrical Box installation Provides a Discreet Profile
The Silhouette alarm's faceplate protrudes less than an inch from the wall, making it the most discreet alarm on the market. The encasement containing the sensor and components fits in most standard 2-gang, metal or plastic electrical boxes (make sure you have this setup before purchase.) Builders and do-it-yourselfers will appreciate the pre-stripped wiring harness, which eliminates the need for a stripper tool, and the tinned strands that increase conductivity and wire nut grip. Once the CO alarm is installed, simply make sure the unit receives AC power for 24 hours to fully charge the battery.
Check and make sure you have one of these boxes in your wall before purchase:
Rechargeable Batteries Save Money, Time, and Labor
No need to worry about faulty batteries with the Kidde KN-COPF-i Silhouette Low-Profile Carbon Monoxide Alarm. This alarm contains a rechargeable battery that runs off central electricity and lasts the lifetime of the unit. Dependable and easy to install, this no-maintenance alarm saves on labor and material costs over its lifetime. Builders and do-it-yourself homeowners will discover this makes it a must-have for remodels and new construction.
The Kidde Silhouette Low-Profile Carbon Monoxide Alarm features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery sealed inside the unit that recharges automatically via central electricity. If there is a power outage, the battery backup feature will allow continuous monitoring of carbon monoxide (CO) levels--something AC-only units can't offer--and it will recharge when electricity is restored. Over the span of the alarm's life, this no-fuss unit saves homeowners money, time, and labor on battery changes. For builders, landlords, hoteliers, and apartment managers, this innovative feature cuts down on callbacks, material, and labor costs. The battery is designed to last the lifetime of the alarm, approximately seven years, which is 40 percent longer than standard CO alarms.
Interconnect-able System Offers Early Hazard Detection
This alarm uses advanced electrochemical CO sensing technology, providing reliable protection against the dangers of carbon monoxide. In addition, the unit is designed to interconnect with other Kidde CO and smoke alarms, providing you with the earliest warning of a CO or fire hazard. The Digital Display feature allows for easy viewing of carbon monoxide levels from 30 - 999 parts per million. Each alarm in the interconnect-able system is equipped with an initiating alarm memory. In the event of an emergency, the alarm that first detects a hazard will feature a flashing LED, allowing emergency personnel to locate the source quickly and efficiently. All other alarms in the system will sound, however, their LEDs will not flash. This feature is especially useful in apartment buildings, condominiums, hotels, and dormitories.
Meets Industry Standards
Like all Kidde alarms, the Silhouette Low-Profile alarm has been approved by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), an independent third-party testing laboratory that sets the industry standard for alarms.
