Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Barb Customer returned
I bought 2 of these units 11/2014 specifically for the 10 year battery and the light. I decided to install them last night. Neither package had been opened prior to my opening them. One of the units had been bought and returned by a prior customer. They had written the date of 12/24/2013 of installation on it and the same date as having been replaced. When I opened the second unit I found it had NO light and no wall attachment plate. Obviously, someone switched them. This makes me wonder about the manufacture's/distribution of these units in general. I will replace these units and hope HD believes my problem with both units. I've had these units before and highly recommend them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John NOT ten year battery!
Just bought. Searched for battery expiration date on package like I have seen on any other kind of batteries, including auto. No date visible. Manufacture date (only AFTER opening package) was seven months ago. Batteries can not be replaced. When re-stocked, new are certainly going to be placed in front of old, and not rotated.
Emergency safety light seems somewhat dim.
I hope unit works if there ever is a fire. Photoelectric units (which this one is) are supposed to be better than ionization type. I have seen a spray can for sale somewhere that produces a mist to check smoke alarms.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by detective 1 of 3 is junk
Purchased a package of 3 Dec 2014 and placed them in laundry room, kitchen and hallway. Came home Mar 2, 2015 to one in hallway sounding alarm. Turned it off and it re-activated a few minutes later. There was absolutely no smoke in the house. I switched the alarms from laundry room and hallway and the former hallway alarm sounded again. I switched it off permanently and threw it out. If the remaining two alarms fail in this manner I will also toss them out. Am replacing the bad alarm with another brand.

I got this smoke alarm mainly for the 10 year battery claim. Replacement batteries cost a fortune and need to be replaced once or twice a year. That adds up to a sizable amount of money over 10 years! Installation was easy and the test verification was loud enough to wake even a deep sleeper. I suggest using metal screws, as the plastic did not hold. So far, I am pleased with this smoke alarm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Very easy ordering.
Assembled with three screws,mounting went smoothly. Did not mess with large assembly screw. Other reviews led me away from that. Also, liked the safety light feature.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skye Clever idea, horrible execution
The new mounting base is a clever idea, but it won't work on a textured (popcorn) ceiling. The mounting base fits flush to the ceiling, but the texture of the ceiling prevents the alarm from fitting flush, therefore it can't insert far enough into into the base to engage. I am a very handy home-owner but trying to install this has been a maddening experience. I am going to try to put washers between the base and the ceiling to offset it a little, but I shouldn't have to do that and/or the instructions should suggest it.

Model P3010H installed in my hallway for about a year. Began to alarm but nothing is causing false alarm. I even placed a First Alert model next to Kiddie and Kiddie again misfired bit FA was silent. No fire, no gas, no cooking smoke, etc.
Contacted Kiddie and gave me run around. Told me to vacum unit. I vacuumed uint and it again had false alarms.
This alarm with the lithium battery in my oppinio is junk and can not be trusted. The internet is full of reports of the same issues yet Kiddie does not think there is an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg Now i won't have to stumble in the dark
With the arrival of my new son I was going around the house looking at overall safety and realized the interior hallway that leads to all of the bedrooms is very dark at night. I was looking for a solution in the event of an emergency so I could see what was going on. Now I have a smoke detector with a photoelectric sensor that has a faster reaction time than the old style and a built in safety light. Not having to change the batteries every six months is just a bonus.

The smoke detector was easy to install, and worry-free for ten years (no batteries to change).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Worry free installation too!
This is a great smoke alarm with a great light to help you see in an emergency situation. Installation is very simple, a matter of a few screws. The idea of not having to replace the battery for ten years is so appealing! It says hallway but I was thinking,that you could probably use one of these in your tool shed or wherever you'd like. Just follow the package directions. This is a good deal and I do recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jon Battries do not last one year and no smoke problem in a vacant house during a remodel permit
Batteries do not last even several months in a remodel house and had to change after the permit cleared dead batteries. but did the permit test when installed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RWade No more beep beep beep in the middle of the night
Everyone needs an alarm outside of bedroom doors - just when did you change the battery last? They always quit in the middle of the night. Hurrah for the ten year battery.
Got this instead of fooling with changing batteries - couldn't turn the old one off - threw it outside, then trashed it the next morning.

I replaced another smoke detector with this one. Easy to install. I like the fact that the battery will last 10 years and not wake me up at 2am with chirping. I hope I never need it, but the light is a plus. When seconds count, I don't want to worry about finding an exit in the dark.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LTUSNRET GREAT ITEM. ONE LESS THING TO DO.
When the time would change, I would check my alarm batteries. Now I have extra time to watch the grass grow. These really are a great product to have in all hall ways. .

Horrible product had them for a short time and they continually went off for no reason. Had to remove them and get new ones big waste of money. Gave it 1 star only because I had to rate it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gowe Great Addition To Our Wired Alarms
We added this alarm to the wired alarms in our house. Installation was easy and the instructions were clear. Our other alarms are wired and wake us up chirping in the middle of the night when the batteries run low. Therefore this one should be an improvement. I like the fact that the battery should never need replacing. The light feature gives added peace of mind. Great product.

Basically remove from package and mount in a convenient location. Like the integral light and long-life battery. Have the companion CO detector with the lithium battery also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DepotDog Good for the price
This item had all of the features I wanted plus a 10 year battery (or so they claim). No surprise it's all plastic construction as everything today is but it installed as described with no problems. Won't know how it performs until the house is on fire.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MetalMedic We'll see in 10 years....
So far so good, I replaced all smoke detectors in my house when I could afford the new 10-year battery units. No way to know if it is going to work right without setting my house on fire or waiting 10 years...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ggkl I would not recomend it
I installed this alarm and it cherps (one cherp) almost every night and wakes me up. I can't find anything wrong but I'm tired of waking up. I'll try to return but I don't have the receipt. I do not recommend this alarm---something is wrong with it.

Replaced old battery operated units with these. Install was easy, parts could be made a little better. With 1/2" drywall the single plastic anchor may work, but with 5/8" drywall I broke the single anchor each time. The option to use two small standard drywall anchors fixed the problem.
