Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vince Good value for the price but very irritating because no installation hardware is included.
Bought these and expecting installation hardware such as screws to be able to install out of the box. Instead I have to go buys screws to be able to install it; very annoying!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GL Fantastic solution for replacing smoke alarms
It was great to find a package deal on 6 smoke alarms. The matched our already installed wiring. Thanks for the service. They were very easy to install even when we decided to change the ceiling ring so they would match the new units. Shipping and pickup at the store were very easily done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYGuy Smooth Upgrade/Install 6-Pack Smoke Alarm
Installed 6 new hard wire, interconnected, smoke alarms. The install went smoothly without some of the issues mentioned in other posts. About 45min for all 6, less than $10/ea, great value!
***These smoke alarms require power to each alarm, black, white and Common(red) lines. Otherwise they will beep when just on battery power.
Product comes with 6 sets of instruction, smoke alarm, mounting bracket and connector (battery already installed). The i12040 is almost a direct replacement for the 11 year old Fire 2040s that were there.
The mounting bracket and power connector are different from the older version, so each bracket had to be replaced as well as the power connector. The new bracket went over the hole perfectly and the smoke alarm mounted securely. NOTE: No screws or anything for the mounting bracket, I reused the ones from the old alarms.
The smoke alarms started to beep and I removed the yellow tag marked "remove after connecting power and mounting to ceiling", then no beep. Tested all units, when one goes off, they all go off. Done.

Not sure if the ones that aren't working are because of the product or an issue with our wiring. Half of the units aren't functioning though.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by smokestressed If you want to sleep unless there is a real fire, DON"T BUY THESE!!!!
replaced 7, old Kidde alarms in my home with new p12040 models form Home Depot. The old ones were 14 years old and the old issue was they would chip when the battery was low. No big deal, but to be safe we got new ones.
The new ones have had TWO false alarms in less than 4 months.
I would avoid these! Kidde and parent company UTC apparently changed something to save a buck.
If you want to stress test your heart, then get these. If you want to sleep DO NOT BUY THEM!!!!
