First, removed all the existing unit and the old bracket. Then I used the 2 screws that come with to mount the new bracket to the wall with screwdriver and insert smoke detector unit to the bracket by twitch to lock into place and done. It was very easy to install.

I'd say that the battery is not active until installed, so to me, start counting after you install, that is my intention!

Can the battery be replaced?

Asked by Zelda May 11, 2020

No...I think instructions state that the unit will beep when the battery life expires. At that point they are to be disposed of. I think that's typically the life expectancy of a smoke detector anyway. (10yrs)

Couldn't turn it off
Why do these smoke detectors always fail in the middle of the night? We've only had this unit a few months, and it went off at 4 am. We couldn't turn it off! We had to hit it with a hammer and cut the wires just to make sure it would shut up.

Hello mercedes,
Thanks for reaching out. There is an area on the back of the unit that you break through the label and puncture the back label. This will reveal a plastic "screw" that you turn counter clockwise to disengage the battery. Please call Kidde support at 1-800-880-6788 Open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM EST Saturday 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM EST. They're the experts and will be able to assist. Thank you.

Well, the good part is the detectors did not catch fire....
I inspect and replace smoke detectors in apartment buildings. I have boxes and boxes of this detector, dead. On some units the ten year battery seems to last about three years. The test beep goes on too long as well.

Not good long term near bathrooms
Bought two 2-packs, one for each level of the house. The ones in the basement, lower level (entertainment area), main level (kitchen, dining, living rooms) are all just fine. A couple cooking-related false alarms, no big deal. The one on the upper level (bedrooms, main bathroom) started going off for no reason. Sometimes it would go off for a little bit and stop. Other times it kept going for several minutes before i could find a stick to press the "hush" button. Then it would silence for ~10 mins and start again. After waking up twice to it last night and again this morning as i was sitting on the toilet, i decided to pull it down, turn it off and buy a new, different brand. I looked at the date we had written on there. We installed in Oct. 2017, and I'm going to replace it now, Sept. 2020. Almost 3 years. Not bad, really. Just wish it would've lasted 10 years as advertised. We had a First Alert for ~10 years. It went off a few times, all due to cooking (a couple were due to someone falling asleep while cooking, so that saved us). We replaced with a newer First Alert detector that lasted another 10 years. Then i saw these on sale at Home Depot. Being familiar with Kidde because i've had a couple fire extinguishers of theirs, i decided to get them. After this incident, i'm going back to First Alert.

Tricky to silence
Installed in '17, failed today. Could not be silenced until I figured out how. You might need a hammer, but my foot worked fine.
by carl
Response from Kidde ExpertJul 26, 2020
Hello Carl,
Nuisance alarms, particularly in the middle of the night, are caused by something interfering with the sensor. These units are looking for particles of combustion, so when a small insect or piece of dust gets into the sensor (*located inside of the unit) the unit will interpret this as smoke particles. We recommend using compressed air, through the side vents/ bug screen and blowing out/cleaning the alarm really well.

Response from Kidde ExpertJan 17, 2020
Hello. That is unusual. Are the alarms in a location that get especially cold or especially hot like a garage, attic, or crawl space? That can affect the sensor. Call us with these 4 alarms in hand at 1-800-880-6788 or contact us at https://www.kidde.com/home-safety/en/us/support/help-center/submit-a-question/ with details about what the sounded like when giving the warning and let us troubleshoot this and see what we can do for you about these alarms. We'd like to help you.

Please read the instructions before purchasing. It seems there are two types of smoke detectors. One for fast spreading fires and one for slower ones. My sense would be to purchase a smoke detector that responds to both types of fires. I did install this one in our family room and trust that it would do its job, if necessary. Would have been nice if mounting hardware were included (screws and wall anchors).
