This is an OK smoke alarm. Pro - lasts 10 years (hopefully) Cons - If you detach the smoke alarm from its wall mount holder it will be deactivated and CAN NOT be re-activated. It is meant to be a permanently mounted device for 10 years. Once the battery runs out the whole device must be discarded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EyeRobot Great, reliable product
I purchased a pack of 3 of these for my son's condo a couple years ago, as well. Bought these to fill in the gaps from existing alarms in our new home. Easy to install. Loud, piercing alarm that I hope to never need to hear other than an occasional test. With a guaranteed 10 year battery they eliminate the need to change the battery annually plus 10 years of batteries would cost almost as much as the unit. Good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emkayache Check back in ten years.
This smoke alarm installed as easily as any other. The look and dimensions are similar to most. The standout feature that makes this one unique is that it has a ten year battery life. So check back with me in ten years.

Installed six alarms in less than 30 minutes. Easy to remove base, tap in drill locations in drywall, install screws into base, and then install body - and twist. READY.
This will make sure my family in not caught off guard in the middle of the night.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by beepbeep OK, but not 10 year
Would it alert you to a fire? Yes. But do not expect it to last 10 years. We originally choose it as a quick install option (opposed to hardwired one) but in less than 3 years it stopped working. We replaced it with the same model due to the inexpensive price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerry Easy to install
I ordered it online because they don't carry two (2) wire detectors in the store. Guess what? It came with three (3) wires and instructions to only connect two (2). The date of manufacture was 2012. After a few days it started beeping. I think the battery that came with it was put in the box at manufacture. I'm hoping that a new battery is all it needs. Other than that I'm fine.

I recall opening them and seeing the brand was actually kiddie on the inside, which didn't match the box. Not sure if it was a one off or not - they looked the same other than the name. There is an additional warning that during install where you "snap" the battery on by turning the device into the wall mount. If for some reason you planned on an alternate installation you'd miss that important step where the battery is activated for the first time.
I read on the back that in 10 years when the battery fails that there would be a chirp that needs to be responded to by triggering another tab to disconnect the failing battery at its end of life before discarding.
I like the permanent battery idea for my triplex, hopefully I don't find tenants tampering and breaking that battery disconnect of them prematurely. Just in case I put one AC wired device with the traditional 9V battery backup into the hall way.
In general for smoke detectors I do wish that the vendors would use the same base year to year , decade to decade - I hate having to remove and replace the bases because a small plastic tab is moved slightly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nightworker easy to install, dependable
An easy way to install them is to use masking tape to temporarily hold the base while you drill the two holes for the plastic inserts and then put in the screws. Remove the tape, twist on the smoke detector and it's done. Also, the unit has very few false alarms. It's a well designed and dependable smoke detector.

Just after 3 and a half months of operation my unit had a nuisance alarm that would not clear, hush button failed to work as well. Put on some earplugs and tried to clean the unit as that might have been the problem but that failed to help. 6 hours later I deactivated the unit (which ends it's life, but this is clearly understood) and tossed it into my hazmat pile- 20 bucks down the drain and I'm back to the trusty 9 volt units!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brian This product is Junk
I bought this 6 months ago. Last night it started to alarm. There was no smoke or fire.
It continues to alarm...no smoke. I was hoping to get a product I didn't have to worry about for 10 years or so.
Instead I wasted 20 bucks on an alarm that lasted less than 6 months. Never again. Made in China. Don't buy this product.
