Description

The 2060-ASR is an AC/DC powered smoke alarm that features the new Kidde TruSense multi-criteria optical smoke sensor, and easy to use front load battery door. This model uses the same wiring harness and mounting bracket as the legacy i4618AC, making replacement easy. 

Why TruSense?

More synthetic materials are being used in homes, and those react differently in fires. Smoke alarm standards have changed, requiring flaming and smoldering polyurethane foam fire tests as well as a "nuisance test" to avoid false alarms from minor cooking mishaps. TruSense technology uses a multi-criteria optical sensor (MCO) with advanced programming to identify real fires from false alarms, such as smoke from cooking sources. The system analyzes smoke particles in the air to determine if the source poses a threat. This advanced sensor technology helps Kidde smoke alarms meet the latest UL 217 detection requirements. 

  • TruSense Multi-Criteria Optical Sensor: Detects various fire types and reduces cooking nuisance alarms

  • 120V AC/DC Hardwired with 9V Battery Backup: Interconnects with up to 24 devices. See User Guide for list of compatible alarms

  • Three Color LEDs: Receive visual notifications of alarm status

    • Green: Alarm is operational

    • Amber: Low Battery/Unit Error

    • Red: Smoke detected

  • Test / Hush® Button: Tests alarm circuitry and activates Hush feature to temporarily silence nuisance alarms for up to 10 minutes. End of Unit Life and Low Battery alerts can also be silenced for the first 7 days

  • Front Loading Battery Door: Quickly change the backup battery without removing the alarm from the mounting bracket

  • End of Unit Life Warning: Alerts user the alarm is in need of replacement.

  • 10-Year Limited Warranty

Technical Specifications

Model: 2060-ASR
Power Source: 120VAC 60Hz, 9V Battery Backup
Sensor:  Multi-Criteria Optical
Audio Alarm: 85dB at 10ft, 3.0 to 3.5 KHz pulsing alarm
Temperature Range:   40˚F (4.4˚C) to 100˚F (37.8˚C)
Humidity Range: Up to 95% relative humidity (RH), non-condensing
Size: 5” in diameter x 1.6” depth
Weight: 0.5 lb
Interconnects: Up to 24 Kidde devices
Warranty: 10 Year (excluding battery)

Architectural and Engineering Specifications

The alarm can be installed on any standard single gang electrical box, up to a 4” octagon junction box, following the UL/Manufacturer’s approved placement guidelines. The electrical connection (to the alarm) shall be made with a plug-in connector. The alarm shall include two tamper resistant features to discourage unauthorized removal of the alarm.

The 2060-ASR shall include a test button that will simulate fire conditions and cause the unit to go into alarm. This sequence tests the unit’s electronics to ensure proper operation. A maximum of 24 Kidde devices can be interconnected in a multiple station arrangement. The interconnect system must not exceed the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) limit of 18 initiating devices, of which 12 can be smoke alarms. The alarm shall have two methods of warning for danger: a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 decibels at 10 feet and a three color LED that flashes red when smoke is detected.

The alarm shall include an End of Unit 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. A voice warning will provide a “Replace Alarm” message. This alert can be temporarily silenced in 24 hour increments for seven days.

The unit shall at a minimum meet the requirements of UL 217 8th Edition, NFPA 72, The State of California Fire Marshall, NFPA 101 (One and two family dwellings), Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The alarm shall be UL Listed and shall include a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.

Industry experts recommend specific locations for smoke alarms, such as every level and sleeping area of the dwelling. See user guide for more location information.


For maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home, including fast flaming and slow smoldering, it is recommended that multi-criteria smoke alarms be installed. This model meets the latest residential smoke alarm standards, which includes enhanced resistance to nuisance alarms from cooking.
