These smoke detectors are the worst. This is the second one I purchased. The first one would go off for no reason then stop and be good for a while. So I purchased a replacement. This one went off for no reason and would not turn off. It was going off for over an hour. It was still going off when I returned it to Home Depot. They had to break it to get it to go off. This unit was purchased in June of 2017. They are not worry free for 10 years. I tried to get the older type smoke detector with replacement batteries but Home Depot no longer carries them.

I installed this Smoke alarm and to my dismay it didn't work. Also it was a 10 year worry free battery and 14 months of that ten year worry free had already expired. I returned the item to the store for credit and went elsewhere to buy my alarm.
The detector and light works well. However, I mark the date of installation and the unit does not last for 10 years. The previous unit lasted less than 5 years or half the claimed life. I recommended the product since it is virtually the only one that is available.
During Christmas Holidays we nearly had a catastrophe. Our tree lights caught fire due to inappropriate extension cord. Fireman said it was a good thing it was in daytime. Our fire detectors were outdated and not working. I got these. We are safe now.
