Just disabled our second one built in April 2015. The first went off when our son was 9 months old in his room causing me to freak out since he was asleep in, there for the night. No smoke,no fire,no alarm saying the battery was dying,and couldn't be shut off. These units were purchased and installed at the same time,I'm happy to see them gone

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Multiple 10 year Kidde alarms multiple false alarms and complete product failure
Have bought several from Home Depot. Returned almost all for breaking within the first year. Now trying to figure out how to get yet another one fixed after another failure.
Would never buy Kidde again. Too unreliable.

I didn't even buy this junk but it came with my house. Maybe it might make a good door stop because that's about what it is now that it is permanently deactivated.

I bought two. I had one installed in the garage and the other one in the kitchen. A month later, at 3A.M, the one in the garage started with the awful noise. I got the ladder and, afraid, climbed on it and unscrewed the Kidde; it kept making noise and I took it to my bedroom to try to continue my sleep but the noise continued. I called Kidde and I was told a thunder may have triggered it. A month later the one in the kitchen started with the noise. Again, I had to climb the ladder, and unscrew it. This time Kidde blamed it on humidity. I asked for a refund-they do not give refunds. I called Home Depot and told them what I went through and the manager or Assistant Manager told me to take both to the store and gave me his name. I did and I got the refund.

I bought three of these when I bought my house in Nov 2014. The one in the basement had a false alarm a couple times. A few days ago the one in the hallway right outside my master bedroom activated at 3:00 AM! Scared the living daylights out of my cat and I! After searching the entire house doing a lap around the outside of the house determined it was another false alarm! I'm done with these and going to the 2nd generation Nest which seems to have all its bugs worked out.
For areas of the house where Nest is not cost justifiable I am going with the old school First Alerts with replaceable batteries. According to many reviews I've read the 10 year sealed ones report more false alarms then the old style ones along with the 2nd gen Nest.

2 years ago I had 5 of these installed in my home. Purchased from Home Depot. I have since had 2 go off Falsely. During the night. Scaring us up and out only to be a false alarm signal.
Get a better alarm system
