Does it has any differences in the system when changes the location?

Customer Reviews

Battery Operated Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Voice Alert is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work - IF YOU DISABLE THE IR PART!!! Lots of complaints about the alarm going into test mode for no reason. I had the same problem. Took it down and it sat for months. I realized "HEY THERE IS A WARRANTY". When I called up customer service, as soon as I mentioned the problem... "Oh yeah, a remote control or energy saving light bulb probably is setting it off, disable the IR sensor and it will stop". It was simple, Open the battery door with the batteries in, hhold down the test button while closing the door, a chirp will sound and then the IR mode is disabled. So far no more problems. Otherwise it is a smoke/CO alarm that sits there and doesn't do anything exciting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The remote control feature is a major downside! This is a good product, but for us the remote control sensor caused me to get rid of them. It only mentions using a remote to mute the alarm on the package, not the ability to "test" the unit by remote. My daughter has a moon that hangs on the wall that turns on by remote. The remote also sets off the alarm in her room, even though I'm pointing it to the opposite side of the room. It has scared her so much she demanded we take the moon out of her room. Twice my 1 year old got a hold of the tv remote and accidentally set off the one downstairs, scaring the heck out of both children. I'm getting models without the remote control feature. I'm deducting points based off our experiences.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Annoying. Im sure the smoke detector would have worked fine had there been a fire. The poor rating was because of the feature that lets you test the alarm with any remote control. Just push any remote button and the sensor picks it up and goes into test mode. That sounds great, except that you don't have to be pointing the remote at the unit to trigger the test mode. Any where in the room will do! About 10 times out of 30 while using your remote normally while watching TV.... BEEEEP - BEEEEP - BEEEP! --WARNING EVACUATE FIRE IN MASTER BEDROOM EVACUATE --- BIP BIP BIP - WARNING EVACUATE CARBON MONOXIDE IN MASTER BEDROOM EVACUATE!. Not good when the wife is sleeping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wrong Product I cannot use this product because it's not the right size for my wall base. It may work for someone else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TESTING TESTING BEEP BEEP BEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the worst smoke detector ever. Started with six two months ago, have smashed four so far to stop these middle-of-the-night surprise testing sequences. THIS PRODUCT GOES INTO A MASSIVELY LOUD TEST ROUTINE WHEN YOU TURN ON COMPACT FLUORESCENT BULBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not 12-inches away, anywhere. Unbelievable that Home Depot sells this piece of garbage. Absolutely avoid. What were they thinking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Got rid of it I had one of these and got rid of it. My TV and stereo remotes kept setting it off. Very annoying at midnight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased 2 of these smoke detectors. One of the detectors had a problem with it. The voice testing did not stop talking unless battery was removed and then I put the battery back in it did not stop. I took it back and got my money back. I reorder the same detector again and it was ok. So bother detectors are working excellent. I have an older one just like the 2 I purchased it has been working for 2 years without a problem. Excellent product.
