Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eyekno1 New install in rental property.
Installed for peace of mind in rental property. Don't know about the 10 year battery, we'll see. As a retired professional firefighter for 31 years, I not sure I trust it for that long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by phil7782 Best value on a great product
This is the absolute best bargain on a truly worry free product. No annoying low battery beeps in the middle of the night, or having to locate batteries, climb ladders and replace batteries for 10 years!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DSDSDS Easy To Install / Good Product
Installed all 3 of them in under an hour. If you are replacing old wired smoke detectors, the new bracket will not fit the box. All I did was remove the old smoke detector and used one of the screws of the original one that is screwed to the electrical box, then used one of the supplied screw for the other hole. You can set it to where the new smoke detector covers the electrical box and the hole in the ceiling essentially installing it over the old one in the same location. I tucked in the old wiring and made sure they are capped. It looks great.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by ALTARZ HORRIBLE PURCHASE
THIS IS A 10 YR PRODUCT WITH A SEALED BATTERY. I HAVE A RENTAL PROPERTY AND INSTALLED THESE AFTER BUYING THEM ON 5/18/15. ON 5/27/16, I WENT TO CLEAN OUT THE HOUSE, (DIDN'T NEED TO AS THE PREVIOUS TENANTS WERE VERY CLEAN) AND ALL OF THE UNITS WERE CHIRPING. NOT JUST ONE, ALL SIX OF THEM!!! CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE, ASKED FOR A SUPERVISOR AND WAS TRANSFERRED TO VOICEMAIL. BAD PRODUCT, BAD SERVICE, BAD COMPANY!!!!!!!!!
I WOULD RATE THEM WORSE BUT THERE WASN'T THAT OPTION.

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.

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.

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.

Smoke alarms are necessary in every household, and this 3-pack makes it easy to place alarms in multiple areas around the house. They are affordable and easy to install.

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.
