Easy to install, the holding bracket was a different size than my old one, but I was able to use the same screw holes to get a secure fit. Price was ideal compared to other models.

I have just installed the First Alert alarm mentioned above, and I have high hopes that it performs well. Obviously, this is the type of device that you have in your home and yet hope you never are in the position to have to depend on it. Kind of like an insurance policy. You buy it, stick it in a drawer, and hope you never have to look at it. The installation of the alarm went very smoothly and it test well. So far , so good

Installed for only one week. Worked out of the box and tested positively. Needs more time to be sure they will hold up.

Works as advertised. Fit right on the current mount I had so I did not have to install a new mount or drill additional holes in the ceiling.

Just purchased my smoke and carbon monoxide detector - so far it tests well as expected. Will hopefully never be needed for a real event. Appreciate the combination unit - purchased one for main level and basement.

Unit arrived dead on arrival. Called customer support and each time (I called them 4 times) the call was dropped after connecting with a person. I will return and purchase another brand.

    These combo units allowed me to sell the monoxide detectors I had in our house. It also allowed me to deactivate the smoke detectors that are part of our security system thus saving money there too. Not to mention First Alert is a brand I really trust.

    Unit only lasted a little over 4 years before the end of life started beeping according to the date code that was close to my move in date so I know it didn't sit on the store shelf very long. This is too expensive to get a little over half the life of the unit. Plus I have them in my tenants apartments and expect to only have to replace batteries etc on schedule, not get premature calls. I'm considering trying a Kidde product as I'll be I'm shopping to replace it and others soon. I put hardwired kidde in the finished basement and two first alerts on the first floor for redundancy, plus smokes in every room and quadrant of the basement. Annoying when they begin to beep at night and I have so many to eliminate which one is beeping but early detection is key
