Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie I'm excited to put this up. We've been needing a smoke alarm in each bedroom.
The 3 Pack smoke alarm was the perfect purchase. Very easy to install and I was able to put them to use for our 3 bedroom home. Be sure to follow the direction on how to install. Very simple and took no more than 5 minutes to install all 3 smoke alarms. Have a marker, screwdriver and a ladder ready for use. Once you have all smoke alarm backing screwed and installed to the wall be sure to put in the housing and line it up and the smoke alarm is armed and ready. Have fun.

The smoke detectors were shipped fast. One did not work out of the box, but Kidder sent a replacement after being contacted.

The 3-Pack offered a good value for a quality product. Easy installation. Lithium Ion battery very helpful in decreasing battery changes.

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.

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.

Super easy installation, I replaced the same brand that lasted almost 10 years.
