Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Well guys it looks like happy birthday to me!!! I won the Guardion Pyr Alarm FB-1A. I might get it as early as mid next week as it is only coming from Mississauga an hour drive from me. My 7th detector/alarm in my growing collection. The siren/horn was tested on it and it works. I can't wait!!! http...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Neat it sounds very much like the SA76RS. It is a bit higher pitched with the cover off than cover on and like the RS the cover is comes right off. I have only ever known these to have squealer horns. Interesting ones from back in the day. I like the box that came with yours. It kind of looks like t...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

The PCB boards looks different too. I wonder why there is a picture of an American penny in the ebay listing as well. They were in some other listing pics as well.

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Oh wow interesting. The sensor is totally different. Wonder if they sound different too. Does yours make a higher pitched squeal? Would you know if the sensor was changes at some point or if the American and Canadian ones just had different sensors. So far I am still the highest bidder!!!! If so by ...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Thanks it is used and so far I am the highest bidder and from I have seen from the pictures it is a Canadian detector , Not sure of the year of it but I would have to say 1977-78. It doesn't look that big in the pics but I could be wrong. The battery holder looks exactly like that of my SA76RS. If I...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

This is my second choice if the first falls through. I tried for one of these a month and a half ago. I lost out because of a mistake I made (I think) oh well I will try again. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-PYR-A-LARM-Smoke-Fire-Detector-GUARDION-Model-R-1X-Made-in-USA/264785930838?hash=item3da678...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Hi guys well as you know I won an Amway Smoke detector model number E-8315 from 1977. This is the Canadian model. Now this detector has had issues with me setting it off although the LED light flashes indicating there is power going to the unit and it has emitted several chirps although not yet a fu...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Oh okay when I got my Early One the cover slid off I thought I broke it but it slides back on one way I never took it off again. I remember years ago my Dad taking the cover off the Early One we had in our old house so he could clean it off. I forgot that they did that until I got the init. So far I...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Another question I have but are the covers on the Sears Early One and the Fyrnetics F0009 interchangable since they have the same base? I know the Sears has the hinged cover which also comes off one way.

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

I can't wait to see the Westclox video from Nathaniel either. Must be a real obscure unit since the only Westclox units I have ever seen were square, (my parents had one). I figured the Wards unit was a direct rebrand of the Fyrnetics. That being a Wards rebrand still makes it rare though and I hope...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

Hey Helen75 hows it going??? I noticed your post above about the Entronic Vigilante 2 no longer being available. If you are interested here is one up for grabs. You helped me get the Sears unit so if I can help you get this one I don't mind at all. It is from the same seller who is selling the very ...

Re: Rare Smoke Detectors

hi jamesbennett1983. I don't know much about these other than they are from the 1960's and are old and rare and what was before the battery powered units. I might be interested in it. Does the alarm still work? I am more interested in battery powered vintage units and I am a collector as well. I got...
