Provides protection from two hazards – fire and CO – in one unit with 10-year sealed lithium battery backup.
Part Number: 21009667
Smoke alarms are powered by battery or by your home's electrical system. If the smoke alarm is powered by battery, it runs on either a disposable 9-volt battery or a non-replaceable 10-year sealed lithium battery. Alarms that receive their power from your home's electrical system (hardwired alarms) usually have a back-up battery that will need to be replaced once or twice a year.
There are two types of sensing technology available. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Kidde strongly recommends that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fire that can occur within the home.
There are many special features that can help protect you and your home, or make your safety products easier to maintain and operate. Many of these features are not well known by their name, so to learn more about specific features of a model, select it and view its detail page.
The Kidde P3010K-CO is a 10-year, sealed battery, smoke and carbon monoxide alarm that features photoelectric and electrochemical sensing technology with Smart Hush feature. This combination alarm combines the detection capabilities of a photoelectric sensor with that of an electrochemical sensor, which is used to detect CO. When either sensor notices a potential hazard, it will communicate with the other. Depending on what is detected, the alarm will adjust its smoke sensitivity in order to better discriminate between a real hazard and a false one. This constant communication enhances the alarm’s overall performance and significantly reduces the potential for a nuisance alarm.
The sealed in lithium battery will power the unit for the entirety of its 10 year life, eliminating the need for battery replacement and worry about unauthorized battery removal. The alarm provides continuous protection from smoke and carbon monoxide, even during power outages. The alarm will automatically activate when it is attached to the mounting bracket; there are no pull-tabs, no switches, everything is automatic. At the end of alarm life, the unit will chirp, indicating the alarm is in need of replacement. The customer can use a simple tool such as a screwdriver to deactivate the unit, stopping the chirp and making it safe for disposal.
Industry experts (such as the NFPA), recommend that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with fast flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated with slow smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms.

The combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm shall be Kidde model number P3010K-CO or approved equal. It shall be powered by a non-replaceable lithium battery with a 10-year life. The lithium battery shall be sealed in the unit to prevent removal and/or tampering. The unit shall incorporate a photoelectric smoke sensor and an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor. The CO sensor shall be of a fuel cell design and provide accuracy of +/- 20% + 15 PPM. The temperature operating range shall be between 40ºF and 100ºF (4ºC and 38ºC) and the humidity operating range shall be 10%-85% non-condensing relative humidity. The alarm can be installed on the surface of any wall or ceiling following the UL/Manufacturer’s approved placement guidelines. The alarm shall incorporate an automatic activation feature that will activate the unit as soon as it is attached to the mounting bracket, no other steps are involved. The alarm shall include a test button that will electronically simulate the presence of smoke and CO and cause the unit to go into both modes of alarm. This sequence tests the unit’s electronics to ensure proper operation. The CO sensor will not alarm to levels of CO below 30 PPM and will alarm in the following time range when exposed to the corresponding levels of CO. 70 PPM CO Concentration 60 – 240 Minutes 150 PPM CO Concentration 10 – 50 Minutes 400 PPM CO Concentration 4 – 15 Minutes The alarm shall include a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 decibels at 10 feet. For a CO incident, the horn will sound in the repetitive manner – four (4) fast beeps, a short pause, four (4) fast beeps, a short pause. In a smoke incident, the horn will sound in the repetitive manner – three (3) beeps, a pause, three (3) beeps, a pause. The red LED will flash in conjunction with the alarm sound. The unit shall indicate a low battery condition with a brief alarm chirp and LED flash once every 30 seconds. In standby condition, the LED will flash every 60 seconds for the first 10 minutes following power on or test, and once every 10 minutes thereafter. It will also flash every 10 seconds while in Hush mode. The smoke alarm shall include an End of Life Alert, where ten years after initial power-up the unit shall chirp two times every 30 seconds to indicate the alarm needs to be replaced. The End of Life indication can be silenced for 3 days at a time for a maximum of 30 days. The unit shall have a deactivation switch to disable it and make it safe for disposal. The unit shall at a minimum meet the requirements of UL217, UL 2034, NFPA 72, (chapter 11 2002 edition) The State of California Fire Marshall, NFPA 101 (One and two family dwellings), Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It shall also include a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
