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.

I installed my unit in March, it is now August, and it goes off randomly with no ability to quiet it. The center button didn't do it, so it's permanently disabled. Wasted money on what was pressed as a reliable piece of safety equipment. I'll be reaching out to my local fire department for other suggested brands.

Failed after 1.5 years. Do not buy this model. The other Kidde 10 year models work better than this one.

I have five of these installed, manufactured in Dec 2014, installed in May 2015. Today is June 8, 2016, and I had to deal with a 14 ft extension ladder to get the DARN thing down when the battery failed.
Don't waste your money on this.
I'm a 67 year old woman living alone. This was not fun nor a good investment.

Needed alarm that did not interconnect for sunroom addition - appreciate the lithium battery feature with a 13' ceiling as we won't need to climb up every 6 months to change the battery.

Bought this for a new addition (laundry/pantry). After 1 year it started singing for no apparent reason. Called Kidde and they sent a replacement and indicated that I would need to return the defective alarm, but never sent a mailer for it. After 15 months the replacement started to sing again with no apparent reason. Now I have another smoke alarm to properly dispose of.
