Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trymybest Great basic smoke alarm.
This is a great basic smoke alarm at the right price. Easy installation and looks good. I have had no nuisance alarms. This alarm is interconnected to all the alarms in my house. If one alarm is activated, they all alarm.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by saltyfisherman Second one
This is a replacement, the first one only lasted about six months and then began to chirp as if it needed a new battery, which it did not because after replacing the battery it started to chirp again. The unit is very sensitive to cooking odors/smoke from the kitchen when the alarm is in a hallway passing through kitchen and dining room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ELIS Good product
Good product but keeps going off if it is near a cooking area. It also was chirping every 30 seconds and it was chirping at midnight.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Buy a better Alarm
Bought two of these alarms to replace the orginal detectors that were 30 years old. After only two years of use, one of the alarms started late night and early am false alarms. Following the instructions the alarm was blown out with compressed air on three different occasions. The alarm STILL gives off false alarms. It's made in China and recommended to be replaced every ten years. I only got two years before it failed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richm 2 of my 6 i-4168 firex alarms failed within one year
I installed 6 of these firex smoke alarms and two have failed within 1 year. The defective alarms started chirping about every 2 minutes. The batteries were tested good and there was no dust present.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EVB18 Excellent purchase
The installation was non-sense. Just remove the old wiring harness (from the previous or old detector) and replace with the new one. Replace the mounting plate and install the new detector. Finally remove the battery protection tab, close the battery compartment and press the test button. As simple and quick as that. The battery backup feature is a nice addition tho the detector, so you still has protection during a power outage (you may be using candles to light your house). I bought four. Excellent purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by detectionwithoutsmoke Continuous false alarms
There is a reason for a "Quick Hush Feature for False Alarms" on these units. I would not recommend this smoke alarm to anyone that likes their sleep. It constantly went off with false alarms. And with them being hard wired together, the whole house rang out when one would go off. After following the directions from the company and from posts of people who complained, I still kept getting them. Although they may be fairly priced, they are not worth the headache.
