This unit is being the new replacement for an old one whose life term had expired. Was easier to install than the old unit, because of the several slots for the screws that hold the unit to the ceiling. I also like the fact it has voice warning capabilities. It was also about the same price as the old unit being replaced.

The Kidde combination smoke/co battery operated alarm with voice alerting you of what danger it has detected in your home so there isn't any questions when awaken from a deep sleep with the simultaneously ringing siren. The preferred location of installation is on the ceiling, but I didn't want to install on a textured surface so mine was put on the wall. The placement needs to be between 4-12 inches below the ceiing when installed on the wall. It's simple to understand the instructions for both operating and installing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarilynB Love this talking Smoke/CO alarm!
This combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm with voice is a great idea - now I don't have to worry about counting beeps and what the beeps mean because I can clearly hear the explanation of the functions. It tells me if the alarm is for a fire or a carbon monoxide warning. That is awesome! I love the idea of a combination alarm instead of all the separate ones we have around the house. Although I prefer my hardwired alarm, this battery operated type is great for those areas where power is not available, providing peace of mind at any location.
It was very easy to install, and the backplate fit perfectly over my old installation. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The beep chart is printed on back of the unit so you can check it easily. It will chirp and tell you when the battery is low also or when the unit needs to be replaced. I like that the expiration of the sensor is after 10 years of use.
The voice is a pleasant woman's voice that will state either "fire" or "warning, carbon monoxide" and the light flashes red or green depending on the type of alarm. It comes with the 9-volt battery installed the and mounting screws.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sollyd123 Life of product too short
Product only lasts 7 years before it beeps to remind you that it's time to replace it. Item was already 1 year after the mfg date when I bought it. Thats only 85% of the life left on it. Not a good value.

We purchased this unit as a replacement for the factory installed unit in our RV camper. After checking the products available on the shelf this one seemed to be the best value. It was the same general size and it seems to be working fine.
