The first single station smoke alarms were made available to the public in the early 1970’s. By 1976, the technology had been redesigned and the cost was low enough that every home could own one. Prior to 1989, every home was either recommended or required to have at least one in the hallway.
In 1989, newly constructed residential homes were required to have interconnected (hardwired) smoke alarms on every level of the home and outside the sleeping areas. With interconnected smoke alarms, all the smoke alarms will sound if any individual smoke alarm detects smoke.
In 1993, the standard required the installation of hardwired smoke alarms inside bedrooms or sleeping areas. Smoke alarms were required in bedrooms to address the concern associated with sound level losses when occupants sleep with the bedroom doors closed.
In 1996, the requirement to have hardwired smoke alarms with battery back-up in new construction was added to address non-operability during power outages.
The Code saves lives.Member of NFPAMember of Education SectionAlternate on NFPA 720 Carbon Monoxide Detection I believe in Codes…I believe in smoke alarms…I believe it all saves lives…
23% of fire deaths occurred with a smoke alarm that wasn’t operating…
37% of fire deaths occurred with no smoke alarm…
The death rate was much higher in fires in which a smoke alarm was present but did not operate (1.94 out of 100) than it was in home fires with no smoke alarms at all…

The Crossfire’s radio frequencies are 905.2MHz and 913.2MHz. The radio “hops” between the two frequencies in order to ensure the signal gets through to the other alarms on the network
