Field Configurable Ceiling Horn-Strobes

Genesis Series


Genesis ceiling horn-strobes are small, compact, and attractive audible-visible emergency signaling devices. Protruding no more than 1.6” (41 mm) from the ceiling, Genesis horn-strobes blend with any decor.

Thanks to patented breakthrough technology, Kidde Genesis strobes do not require bulky specular reflectors and lenses. Instead, an exclusive cavity design conditions light to produce a highly controlled distribution pattern. Significant development efforts employing this new technology have given rise to a new benchmark in strobe performance – FullLight technology.

FullLight strobe technology produces a smooth light distribution pattern without the spikes and voids characteristic of specular reflectors. This ensures the entire coverage area receives consistent illumination from the strobe flash. As a result, Genesis strobes with FullLight technology go well beyond the minimum UL-required “cross” pattern.

Depending on the model, Genesis horn-strobes feature 15 to 95, or 95 to 177 candela output (see ordering information), which is selectable with a conveniently-located switch on the front of the device. The candela output setting is clearly visible even after final installation, yet it remains locked in place to prevent unauthorized movement after installation.

Genesis horn-strobes feature textured housings in architecturally neutral white or eye-catching fire alarm red. An ingenious iconographic symbol indicates the purpose of the device. This universal symbol is code-compliant and is easily recognized by all building occupants regardless of what language they speak. Models with “FIRE” markings are also available.

Field configurable – no need to remove the device!
– 15/30/75/95 cd and 95/115/150/177 cd models available
– Switch settings remain visible even after the unit is installed
– Low/high dB settings

Unique low-profile design
– 30 percent slimmer profile than comparable signals
– No visible mounting screws
– Available with white or red housings

Easy to install
– Fits all standard 4” square electrical boxes with plenty of
room behind the signal for extra wire – no extension ring or
trim plate needed
– Pre-assembled with captive hardware – no loose pieces
– #18 to #12 AWG terminals – ideal for long runs or existing wiring

Unparalleled performance
– Exclusive FullLight strobe technology produces the industry’s
most even light distribution
– Single high-efficiency microprocessor controls
both horn and strobe
– Low current draw minimizes system overhead
– Independent horn control provided over a single
pair of wires
– Highly regulated in-rush current allows the maximum
number of strobes on a circuit
– 100 dB peak – multiple frequency tone improves
wall penetration
