Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by koolbreeze52 Easy install
The only complaint I have is the voice alarm is not very loud. The alarm itself is loud with two different sounds one for smoke and the other for carbon dioxide. Batteries are included.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bob47 Stopped working after 4-6 weeks
I bought six of these. After about a month, one started alarming for no reason and could not be reset. I took it down.
About a week later another one started alarming for no reason. I was able to reset it with the center button but that only worked for about 15-20 minutes when it started up alarming again.
I saw other similar reviews of this item, but was hoping I would get lucky. I didn't get lucky. Four out of 6 are still working, we'll see about those.
Also, unless you are going to put these up on a simple sheetrock wall, the mounting hardware only allows you to use very small diameter screws. I wanted to mount to a brick wall and had to use some ingenuity to get it mounted.
I would look at other products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyHomeowner Difficult install
I just installed it today so I can't attest to the quality of it. I tried to use the large drywall screw to mount and the screw broke it half while it was halfway through the drywall. My suggestion is to use the anchors and screws that they include to install it.

Break after 10 months. Why bother 10 years battery and warranty. If you want to loose more money, go for the warranty repair/replacement with Kidde.
"The obligation of Kidde under this warranty is limited to repairing or
replacing the alarm or any part which we find to be defective in material, workmanship
or design, free of charge, upon receiving the alarm with proof of date of purchase,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyFridgeOwner Continuous false alarms. Will be returning all 5.
Bought 5 of these to completely update our entire house to brand-new, sealed battery units. All of them installed well, and initially functioned as expected.
However, within a few weeks, an individual alarm would randomly start sounding a smoke alarm. There was no smoke, and they were not located near areas with steam or cooking smoke/smells/vapor.
I tried switching the detectors to one of the other locations within the house, but the location didn't matter.
I have had three of them go off by themselves in various locations in the house.
I will be taking these back to my local Home Depot. Unless I got a bunch from the same "bad batch", I don't believe that replacing them will help. (Especially after reading all of similarly poor reviews just on this site.)
