I feel safer with this smoke alarm.
While it is hard to test a smoke alarm (unless the wife is cooking) I do appreciate the fact that I no longer have to change batteries in the 8 older units during daylight savings time. I am not a pro at installing stuff (I have metric hammers at home), yet it was easy to install and test.
I recommend this smoke alarm.
install it and your done for 10 yrs
as an apartment manager, it is essential that smoke detectors always work. tenants do not always replace the battery. that's where this product comes in and solves multiple problems. with a 10 year battery life, self-contained it never needs service. fire inspectors passed this product at once.it installs in minutes and activates at once and completes a self-test and your done. I have 25 of these installed and have never had any problems or issues...I would recommend this product to everyone. dave
Necessity, but last less than 10 yeqars
Purchased this particular smoke alarm again because it was a direct replacement and I didn't have to change the mounting ring. The first one I purchased only lasted 3 years before it started to chirp indicating replacement. It is a good alarm, easy to mount, but don't expect to leave it in place for 10 years.
