Good price, plus it includes the backup battery. Very easy to install. I replaced the old smoke alarms of a different brand without having to drill any new holes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpaghettimanVA Updated Smoke Detector Installed Effortlessly
I was replacing a phase one replacement by Kidde for a twenty three year old wired FireX smoke alarm setup. The wire-only and no battery initial replacement for the FireX system started beeping mysteriously. When I looked for replacements, I discovered Kidde had a new meeting code wired solution (so that all the smoke alarms sound off if one is tripped) that has a battery as well, for times when the electricity goes out and there is a smoke situation. I had changed over some of the mounting and electrical connectors quite easily a few years ago, so this one simply snapped in in about 10 seconds. It appears to work just fine, and now I have protection even if the power is out due to the backup 9V battery unit. Note that even if you have to rewire and put up a new mounting/connector, it is done easily in about 5 minutes if you are a do it yourselfer. For those of you with 10+ year old systems, get new detectors - they are inexpensive and easy to install, and keep your family alive after the 10 year life span of detectors expire. Plus it is typically local code.

I looked at several smoke detectors at Home Depot before choosing this particular one. It has the best price performance ratio. The instruction booklet is excellent and easy to understand. The detector itself seems to be good quality. As an added bonus it comes with a battery backup already installed.

i bought 7 online for one location and 8 from the local store for another location.
the dates that these units were manufactured (for the online purchase) was 2013...while the ones in the store were made in 2011!
i am trying to be proactive and keeping the units in my home "fresh"....but Home Depot is not doing me any favors with stale merchandise.
the actual units were easy to install. about 5 minutes per unit and they are white, unlike the Firex units they replace which were off white. blend into the ceiling nicely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crawford Easy install
Worked great for my replacement situation. Base plate has multiple holes to punch to match your existing situation. The red line is capped in case you are not interconnecting the home alarm system together. Had an existing connector so cut the wires off at old alarm and used wire connector caps to connect the black and white wires together. Easy to see green light. Comes with a 9 volt battery.
