Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by desertdwlr six were not enough
it wasn't clear in the write up but these detectors have no battery. This was actually good because two of the detectors I replaced were so high up I had to bring in my extension ladder to get to them--a real pain when the battery starts chirping.

The smoke detectors were a direct replacement for my old ones. Found them on the home Depot online and ordered them. Two days later they are here and installed. The smoke detectors are great but home depot online is even better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by zsc2010 FALSE ALARMS!!!!
I was happy with this alarm when I first purchased it to replace all of my old discolored in my home due to the universal plug & quick installation. However, less than 48 hours after installing all 13 of them in my house I have had false alarms going off every 4-18 hours at random times & in the middle of the night (not much fun when you have a 5 month old that just started sleeping through the night).Now, I have about a 8 hour testing & troubleshooting process to go through to find out how many of them are actually bad. I would strongly recommend to spend a few extra bucks, get a better unit even if it requires some rewiring. Naturally, I don't have the boxes anymore so returning them is out of the question.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mshamba Replacements for 10 year old originals
Direct replacement. I have 7 tied together. The two I have replaced have a red light that flashes periodically that I don't find in the instructions. Maybe when I get them all changed out the red light will stop. For now it's not a problem. They do work with the old units.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScottC Easy to install, no false alarms
This was an easy retrofit due to the wiring harness it comes with plus the mounting plate had several hole width options, so it was an easy replacement of the unit I was replacing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boobiemyles Just what the doctor ordered
Perfect fit and most importantly, they work wonderfully. I didn't even have to replace the base, just plug in and test. They were also very economical.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doitmyself4 Perfect alarm for a home with a battery back up system.
If your home has a battery back up system for your hard wired fire and alarm systems this unit is the perfect choice. No separate unit battery to maintain or replace. Hush feature is a must and the green/red LED light lets you know immediately if your unit is working or which unit initiated the alarm. Easy install.
