Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hardwired BRK (First Alert) smoke detector system is very good. Works well while powered from utility and when under battery operation, communicates with other detectors very well in both powered modes. loud and very recognizable. Each unit comes with its own: mount plate, pigtail connector, temp dust cover, set of lithium AA batteries from Duracel and installation instruction in many languages. You provide the hard wiring, 15 amp circuit breaker, mounting screws and the boxes. These can be mounted on ceiling or wall. I installed each and tested in under battery power only starting with unit furthest from the panel. After all were installed but not yet util power'd I tested each in reverse order (last install to first install). Then I connected the circuit breaker and retested each unit again in order from util to last and back again. Then powered down the circuit and retested again. To make sure everything functioned properly. Then did a small smoke test to make sure each did its job.Covered with temp dust covers while rest of construction was completed. (Note we have a backup generator and this circuit line was put on the backed up power side of the generator system.) August 21, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Had to find exact replacement for house This thinkg wouldn't stop chirping after battery replacement December 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Bought this photoelectric detector to replace an ionization model in our kitchen. The ionization type was causing lots of false alarms from toasters, ovens, stove usage, etc. Replaced a BRK branded model (parent company to FirstAlert). Hardwired connectors were identical and it interoperates with the other BRKs in our home. New detector's mounting ring was different than existing detector, though. After one and a half months in kitchen, not a single false alarm from burnt toast or dirty oven. Works great. December 13, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just the smoke alarm I was looking for after having lost a home to a fire when the alarm didn't work! We had FOUR iunits installed by a electrican in a !/2 hour and finally feel secure! December 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced after 9 years The replacements did NOT fit in the earlier brackets. I had to remove the old ones and use the new ones. One is "chirping," possibly due to a poor battery shipped with the new alarm. I've kept the old ones just in case. Once the new brackets were installed, installation was easy. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well. Optical sensor less sensitive for kitchen use. So far no false alarms. November 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by found the correct product It was very difficult to find the right smoke detector that fit the connection that existed in my ceiling. I wish it were available in stores, but this did work. It took 2 weeks to arrive at my home, which is why I rated it 3 stars. The smoke detector is 4 stars. October 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Replacment Have had alarms for over one month now no false alarms, have the photos in the hardwire and ion battery only alarms installed also. Alarms are worth the money better your odds if something does happen. October 8, 2014
