GE Networx NX-8E with GE/Interlogix smoke detectors

I'm having frequent problems with my GE/Interlogix 449CSTE 4-wire smoke detectors. These have been installed as a package with my GE Networx NX-8E system about 2 years ago.

These smoke detectors frequently initiate faults (every 3 months or so), which can be cleared after a thorough cleaning of the optical chamber and the sensor. At this point, one of these detectors has come to a point that cleaning won't work.

Living in Europe is practically impossible to aqcuire a replacement either for the optical chambers or the detectors themeselves.

The question is, can these detectors be replaced with any other brand and still work with the GE Networx NX-8E system? Let me just emphasize that this system is ALL US, it was bought from US, so there is nothing European into it.

Any 4-wire smoke detector that will operate off of a 12vdc system will work just fine. Ultimately, they are just fancy relays....

Thanks MrRonFL.
Any good and reliable brand to suggest? The GE was the most expensive but proved to be anything but reliable so far.

My preference is the System Sensor models: https://www.systemsensor.com/en-us/P...Detectors.aspx
