Answer: 
"Hardwired" means it is wired directly to your house wiring; ex. lights, outlets, etc. If your current fire alarms are wired in, this will replace them simply by replacing it with this. It has a 9v battery that is used as a backup in case the power to the house goes out.

Answer: 
Hard wired means the detector is wired to the electrical service, requiring a electrical box, installing wire. You will need to hire a good electrician to in stall the detector. Suggest you get a plug-in unit which you simply plug into an available outlet at the point of use.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chirping noise will drive you crazy Thought I was being diligent & replaced all our 10 yr. old units with these new ones, 6 total. Within a week, one began chirping intermittently, waking the household. Replaced battery. Days later, same thing. Replaced the battery, & now two weeks later, the same chirping that never ceases! They are worthless & should be recalled! Will be removing all six & demanding a refund! July 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I bought 3 of these less then 2 years ago, and 2 are already defective I put an addition on my house less than 2 years ago, and bought all new smokes/smoke CO detectors throughout my whole house. I bought these because they weren't cheap, and I figured id be getting what I paid for. Well, already 2 of the 3 CO detectors are defective and beeping all the time giving false alarms. Ive had my local fire department verify it because I didn't want to take a chance that they were actual real alarms. Ive tried contacting the manufacturer 4 different times now, and I haven't received one call back or an email. do your self a favor and DO NOT BUY THESE!!!! July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage that falses within a year The ones that came with the house when I bought it were falsing so I gave them another chance knowing the previous owners probably never cleaned them or anything. My house is spotless and I vacuumed them out regularly and they still failed within a year. July 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible units Multiple false alarms have to bring back units out of the 5 I bought Terrible units Multiple false alarms have to bring back units out of the 5 I bought . Other reviews on other units say get same experiences. Would not recommend June 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good The hardwired Fire,Carbon Monoxide and Natural Gas alarm seems like a good product. They were very easy to install in place of our old fire alarms. They seem plenty load just by using the test button. Luckily we haven't had to rely on them, but I'm confident they will do as they should. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I would give zero stars if I could Worked for less than a year and constantly gave off false alarms for CO (always in the middle of the night!). Replaced batteries and continued to get false alarms. Contacted the company and they were less than helpful and charged me $11.00 for a replacement that I still have not received. While still waiting for a replacement another one of the alarms has also stopped working. Waste of money, just another worthless piece of garbage made in china. March 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Could save your life. Everyone should have this device on the wall in a common area of their homes. It is also advised that homeowners have another carbon monoxide alarm near to the floor. This item meets all of my expectations. February 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work Problem is that its complicated, in that needs battery only as the backup and needs to be connected to hard wire. OK, so I did all that, and guess what, it still keeps beeping every 40 secs. I had to read thru the fine printed brochure/guide, and whatever is says for "40 sec" signal does not apply. To think that I recommended this to many of my friends only to write again and tell them that it did not work out. Idea is just great, 4-1, and I really need that! Now, thinking that my 2 units were faulty batch, I tried ordering again, but it does not ship to CA any more :( August 2, 2015
