Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wireless Smoke Detectors work great! We paid over $1000 to hard-wire three smoke detectors in my son's condo - not to mention the drywall damage we had to repair - so when we purchased an older home that had NO smoke detectors in it - we cringed. This was a perfect solution and only cost us $249 for 10 with the promotion! They were relatively inexpensive and VERY easy to install. When triggered they ALL go off as if they were hardwired together. We highly recommend this product! January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Make your home safer I use these in one of my rental houses. When you test any fire alarm all the others go off just as in a real fire. You can hear the alarms all over the house I have one in each bedroom and one in the living room. I am going to purchase several today for my Motor Home and my personal home. February 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wireless Smoke Alarms are the Way to Go.. Wireless smoke alarms are the way to go.A power outage? No problem,wireless smoke alarms are run by dc,batteries.Took 5 minutes to set up. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Wireless Interconnected Smoke Alarm As a requirement for Airbnb owners, the City of Portland requires interconnected smoke alarms. We needed 5. They often run around $40-50 each but when we found these on Home Depot we were excited to order and try them at under $30 per unit. They were super-easy to install and work exactly as designed. We would definitely recommend these if you need interconnected smoke alarms and don't want to pay for an electrician to install them. January 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far working as intended This is a great product for older homes which were not hard wired for smoke alarms to be interconnected. As a licensed Real Estate Inspector for 20 years this helps bring older homes up to current codes. I installed in my own home. The only thing that I wish was available would be a combination smoke carbon monoxide detector which would complete up grade. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only player in town, and it doesn't disappoint Bought two, one installed in garage, one in the kitchen. It's pretty sensitive, with a car in the closed garage running for 15 minutes (remote-started to warm up in Minnesota winter), it has triggered a false alarm once so far. Suprisingly, cranking up the snow-blower with the garage door opened also triggered it. The one in the kitchen also triggered false alarm by the smoke of heating oil on a pan (it's installed on the ceiling, about 3 feet away from the range horizontally), had to move it a little further from the range. The alarm is loud. The wireless range is pretty good, the two are installed about 15 feet apart, with 3 walls in between, yet I got consistent triggering from one to the other when testing. The hush button is also very handy, especially during the trial-error period of finding the correct spot to avoid false alarm. This is pretty much the only affordable option around, couldn't find any better wireless smoke alarm. After having a little incident in the garage, this is giving me the needed peace of mind. It works well in Minnesota winter, probably the battery will need to be replaced a little earlier. I've only used it for 20 days, can't tell on durability yet. It's supposed to be durable being a critical device with no moving parts anyway. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding- had them in my home about 9 years, time for replacement. One alarm and all 4 sound that alarm. Very good for my deaf &blind brother. Typical install. Works very good. Would recommend to all April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wireless interconnect alarms We built an addition to our home this past year. The alarms were extremely easy to set up and test, supper easy to install. The toughest part was getting the ladder out. One 110v RF unit was used in the new construction and two battery powered RF units were used in the older part of the home. These units were installed in each bedroom. We had to upgrade due to the addition and wanted everything to be interconnected. New building code requires smoke alarms in each bedroom and a CO / smoke alarm in hallways outside bedrooms. Any new construction requires interconnected units, old construction is excepted if it requires additional tear out work to install wiring for the alarm system. Since building codes in our area require a combination smoke and CO alarm outside bedrooms in new and old construction I wish there was a RF interconnected battery operated unit available for that. That is my only regret with this setup. Great units. February 3, 2015
