Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch Picture does not represent the item
I ordered 6 of these for my house. When they came they were clearly the wrong unit. No safety light and it comes with a lithium battery but no promise of 10 year life on the battery. I called the 800 number and the operator apologized and reordered the units for me. The new units came today and they are still missing the safety light and again no promise of 10 year battery life. I installed 2 of the units as I didn't want to go any longer without working smoke detectors in the house. They seem to work great but I really liked the idea of having a safety light and the price was reasonable. Not sure it I'll use the the other 4 yet or look for something different. Just wanted to let everyone know you won't be getting what you order if you order this item.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by johnner Fussy battery tray
The battery tray hinges out for battery installation. Unfortunately the detent is too high, and it is very hard to close the battery tray. The trick is to firmly press the battery down into the tray while simultaneously pushing the tray into the smoke alarm. Because the hush tab on the outside is also used to test the battery, it will NOT make a sound when you press it. It will illuminate a red light inside the alarm that indicates the battery is good. Don't throw the battery out thinking it has discharged. Also, there is no visible plus sign in the battery tray to indicate which way to orient the battery. Note the slightly larger slit in the battery tray wall - that is the slit the plus terminal goes through.

This was bought for a rental. I like that it came with a 10 year battery life which was required to pass inspection for rental unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Bought three, one works
I chose this smoke alarm because I have been happy with my three electrician installed ones. I bought three more for the rest of the house but only one of them works. There is something wrong with the battery doors which make it difficult to install the battery. Once the battery is finally in place the test alarm does not engage. I am returning the defective ones and regretfully looking at other brands.
