What is the difference between the X-Sense SC01 and SC03 combination alarms?
The SC01 and SC03 have the same basic functions. The only difference is that the SC01 features an LCD, and the SC03 does not. The LCD indicates real-time carbon monoxide concentrations in the surrounding air, the remaining battery life, and the alarm’s working status. You can purchase the SC01 or SC03 based on your preferences.
Does this detector meet the California Fire Marshall requirements for installation in rental units?
Yes, this combination alarm has been approved by the California State Fire Marshal.
Is it okay to replace the existing hardwired detector for a non-hardwired one?
Yes, our product is battery-operated, so there is no need for wiring. It can be installed in any ideal location. The distance of the screw holes in the mounting bracket is 4 inches (100 mm). If you want to know whether this alarm can cover your existing electrical box, please check the size of the electrical box.
Can this detector be interconnected?
This alarm works independently, and it is not interconnected. If you need to purchase interconnected alarms, you should consider buying our X-Sense XS01-WR wireless smoke detector.
How long are the mounting screws?
The mounting screws measure 0.98 in (25 mm) long. Drill the screw holes to a depth of 1.18 in (30 mm) using a 1/4 in (Ø 6.0 mm) drill bit.
Can it use a reusable smart battery?
No, you cannot. This alarm comes with a sealed lithium battery that can last for 10 years and cannot be replaced. It is required to replace the entire product when the battery is low.
Can this unit be installed in a kitchen near a gas stovetop, in an attic near a gas furnace, or in a garage near a gas water heater?
No, we do not recommend installing it in kitchens, unfinished attics, garages, furnace rooms, or bathrooms. Do not install it within 5 feet (1.5 m) of heating or cooking appliances. For more details, please refer to our user manual.
