Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bulldog Fire Drill
I have used this brand for years and always had good results. That is until now, I replaced all 12 in my home about a year and half go and had one fail at 2:15 in the morning. It started sounding for no reason and of course it stopped before we could find which one was alarming. Then it did it again about about a month later again in the middle of the night. While I could hunt down the receipt and then sent it in for repair @ some point cost, and safety comes into play. So I just bought another one and fixed the problem.

Purchased to replace our old detectors for our property with 180 rooms about 1.5 years ago. We have had about 1 a week fail right from the day of install. The Alarms would sound off, blew air into them and replaced the battery to no avail. We did not interconnect them, so that was not an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RBinOregon Easy Remove and Replace
This was an R & R of a unit that had seen better days. Went right in with the included bracket. Only problem area was removing the battery activation tape (backup battery is included and installed). Ended up opening the battery cover and jiggling the battery so the tape would come out (pulls out from below), other than that - all is well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce Kidde P12010 false alarms
I have now had this installed for 4 months. It replaced my old Kidde which was the original detector,from when we built the house. Instalation was very simple.
Each time my wife fries food the alarm sounds. Even when she blow drys her hair the alarm sounds. We just came back from a vacation and my son took it off the wall. It was going off for no reason. I put it back up on the wall and he was right it is going off for no reason. Battery is now out and alarm is going in trash.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TileToolJim 120V W/ 9V Back-up with Easy Install Wire Harness
Needed to replace an old unit. This was very easy to install. Simply mount the plate on the electrical box and then hook up the wire harness. Plug the wire harness into the unit and a slight turn attaches it to the mounting plate. Not only is this 120Volt that can be wired in sequence with other units, but it also has a 9 volt battery back-up. The ease of mounting and the wire harness will make it quick and easy to replace the battery as well. It also looks nice on the ceiling.

Gave false alarms after only three months. Don't recommend this product unless you want to be alarmed in the middle of the night.
