This unit for ceiling or wall mount is a photoelectric single station smoke alarm with battery backup designed to give reliable early warning of the presence of smoke where both audible and visual alarms are required. This model is hard-wired so you would need an electrician to hook it up. One year warranty.

The smoke alarm operates on the light scattering principle, a superior method of detection in smoldering fires. It has a pulsing LED light source and a photodiode sensor in a fully screened sensing chamber. When smoke enters the chamber, the infrared beam is deflected onto the sensor. The LED rate increases to 8 times the normal pulse rate, and after the photodiode confirms the presence of smoke for 2 consecutive pulses, it will produce the signal necessary to trip the audible and strobe light alarms.

The 713 series provides the temporal 3 (T3) evacuation tone as a standard feature. When testing, it may take up to 16 seconds longer to go in or out of alarm.
