I had hoped the First Alert jacks from my old detectors would fit this model but they didn't, neither did the mounting bracket. However, it was easy to attach the new mounting brackets on the original screws and rewire the 110 power to the new jacks. Hopefully, I am now good for another 10 years!!
They arrived in a couple business days.

The smoke detector is perfect. Home Depot experts helped me pick out the appropriate replacement for a broken one in our home. The size and operation is great; and the installation was simple.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dot good replacement if you already have them and need to replace them
The builder installed these so we need to replace them--have had to replace most of them over the last 10 y ears--some earlier than expected. But they are easy to install and work okay--unless bugs crawl in, then everything gets set off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcuts44 Smoke alarms hardwired
Our alarms were almost 16 years old and 1 bit the dust so we thought we should replace them all. We used these (5 total 2 carbon 3 smoke) and so far we have not had any issues with them. They were all very easy to replace. Hopefully these will last a long time.
We did need to do some searching to find information that shows which models are compatible with other models (co 2 compatible with smoke detectors). Our old ones would go off in the middle of the night for no reason (other than to wake us) so far we have not had that happen with the new set we purchased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brysimm Solid replacement for outdated detector
The original model detectors in my home were discontinued and unavailable for replacement, but these were actually an upgrade [photoelectric instead of ionization] for a great price. The same 3 wire system and it was easy to swap out the old connector in about 10 minutes!

My 3 previous First Alert smoke detectors were out of date (over 10 years old) and they were the ionizing design models which means that they would often false alarm with the by-products of kitchen cooking. I looked for direct replacements of the photoelectric variety since they are much less sensitive to kitchen cooking. I wanted a direct replacement because these units are hard wired and I didn't want to rewire the wire harness or even to replace the connector. Well, this model was just perfect because all I needed to do was replace the mounting rings on the ceiling and plug in the new units. They all tested fine and have been working flawlessly, even so as to not nuisance alarm with the cooking of steak. I was at first apprehensive because I had read previous reviews dated a few years ago that these units caused some buyers a problem with random chirping, but so far, no problem from my end. And the price can't be beat!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teacher Easy to install
The installer had little problem installing the smoke alarms. He read the directions, started on the first one, and then completed the other three very easily. Thank you.

The First Alert product is great and easy to install, may require you install a new face plate which comes with the unit. This unit has a slide out compartment for easy installation of a battery. Do not a smoke alarm w/o this feature. Battery replacement is a big issue if you are elderly. Had to oder on line form Home Depot, Advice to HD.....Stock the part and price it below Lowes who does stock them.
