Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stuberk625 I hope I'll never need this alarm to go off!
Easy to install. I like that it's "hard-wired" to electricity, and has a backup battery (9V) that looks like is easy to change, and easily accessible without having to dismount the alarm (battery was included, which is nice).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BAP Worked perfectly to replace old unit
Unit was a direct replacement for a 6 year smoke alarm that went bad. Simply unscrewed old unit from base, unplugged power from old unit, plugged powe into new unit and screwed new unit into old base. Very easy swap out with no tool required (except ladder)

This is your basic smoke detector, nothing fancy just a good basic unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sleddaddy FireX 120V w/ Battery Backup
I noticed the manufacturer date on my existing FireX smoke detectors was June, 2000 and they were now 16 years old, another words, it's time to replace them. Code requires 120V and linked detectors in the bedrooms. That is why I selected this particular model. I removed the old units and their bases. The bases are different but it's just a matter of loosening the 2 screws and replacing the base. The wiring "connector", not the wiring, is different so I did need to rewire it in the box. That's when I found the previous owner never hooked up the alarm link wiring. Replacing the alarms was worth the discovery so I could correct it. The directions also give ambient operating temperature ranges. Since this is my cottage, I set the temp at 50 when I'm not there in the winter and close one room door so it doesn't get heat. Turns out temps below 40 drain the battery. Another lesson learned with good instructions. I also like the battery access on the outside of the unit. The old was inside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drglk Easy To Install Replacement Smoke Detector
After replacing several batteries in my 13 yr old in just 2 days I decided it was broken. Had to be a 120V wired unit since it is part of a series of detectors. This FireX unit by Kidde was easy to install although I had to turn off the power at the fuse box first since I had to handle the wires in the wall. There was no plug interface so I couldn't take advantage of the various interface plug options that Kidde provided. It took only 10 min. for the whole switch out and it comes with a 9v battery. Works great, looks good, and Home Depot had the best price and in stock!
