Will EST SIGA 278's work on a Kid FX-64 fire alarm control panel? Or do they need to specifically be Kidde devices to work with the panel?

It should be compatible, Kidde is owned by EST/Chubb Edwards.

No, the FX series uses a completely different line of addressable devices. For the Kidde-branded panels, you can devices that begin with E, FX, or KIR.

If you were dealing with the Kidde VS or VM, then you could use the SIGA modules (including pull stations) but the detectors would have to be GSA detectors, not SIGA.
