When fires start, early warning can make all the difference. People go to great lengths to protect what matters most to them – and smoke alarms are a great place to start. Smoke alarms save lives, prevent injuries and minimize damage by warning you to a fire as early as possible.

We stock and install ten-year sealed battery smoke alarms (sometimes called smoke detectors) that offer a variety of benefits to the millions who rely on continuous battery-powered smoke and fire detection in their homes. The alarms are powered by sealed, long-life lithium batteries for 10 years (the life of the alarm). With a sealed, long-life lithium battery smoke alarm, homeowners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their home’s smoke alarms are always on – operating 24 hours per day, seven days per week for 10 years – that’s a decade of hassle-free protection.

The National Fire Protection Association recommends replacing smoke alarms every 10 years

Mid Island fire Equipment supplies the following types of Smoke Alarms which all have back up batteries.

  • Ionized
    • Photoelectric
    • Carbon monoxide
    • Combination Carbon / Ionized

Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms (2-in-1 protection from one reliable alarm).

Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm

Carbon monoxide and fire can make for a deadly duo, so these type of alarms make it easier to protect yourself against both. Combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms have sensing technologies that work together to detect fires and the odourless, colourless, tasteless gas known as CO – the silent killer.




Hardwired AC Operated – Combination CO/Smoke Alarms

Hardwired AC Operated

Combination alarms offer protection from two deadly threats in one unit. Many models offer an exclusive voice warning system that eliminates confusion and clearly warns you and your family of a fire or carbon monoxide danger. Combo alarms can save space, and you’ll only need to change and test batteries in one device rather than two. Most models also include battery backup and some even provide 10-year sealed lithium battery backup.


120V AC Talking Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Front-Load AA Battery Backup

120V AC Talking Alarm

This unit is very popular with our customers as it provides protection from two hazards – fire and CO which combines a Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm – A single unit can be installed where previously, two were needed which reduces installation time and protects against both fire and carbon monoxide dangers.

The Intelligent Sensor Technology combines the detection capabilities of an ionization smoke sensor with that of an electro-chemical carbon monoxide sensor. When either sensor notices a potential hazard, the alarm will adjust its smoke sensitivity to differentiate between a real hazard and a false one.

Voice Warning – Announces the hazard type detected (in English and French). Alarm announces “FIRE!” when a smoke or fire hazard is detected and announces “WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE!” when a CO hazard is detected. The unit also announces “LOW BATTERY” when it is time to replace the batteries.


120 V Inter connectable with up to 24 other devices (18 of which can be initiating), including smoke alarms (limit of 12), CO and heat alarms.

AA Front-Loading Battery Backup – Change batteries without the need to remove the unit from the ceiling, providing continuous protection in the case of a power outage.

Tamper Resistant – Unit will lock to mounting bracket to deter theft or tampering.

End of Life Notification – Ten (10) years after unit is first powered, this alarm will beep two times every 30 seconds to indicate it is time to replace the alarm.

Alarm Memory: The green LED will flash every second during alarm. When the alarm condition goes away, the originating alarm unit will flash the green LED every 16 seconds until the Test / Reset button is pressed, thus resetting the alarm.

Multi-function One Button Design includes:

Test Feature – Tests the alarm circuitry and triggers the voice announcement

Hush® Feature – Temporarily silences nuisance alarms for approximately 9 minutes (will announce “HUSH MODE ACTIVATED,” or “HUSH MODE CANCELLED.”).

Reset Feature – Resets the carbon monoxide alarm

Peak Level Memory – If alarm has detected a CO level of 100ppm or higher since it was last reset, the voice alarm will announce “CAUTION, CARBON MONOXIDE PREVIOUSLY DETECTED”
