Feel Super Safe - 03/25/2018
Reviewer: Tamara Allen
I received this product for free through Smiley360 to review and I love It! It was super easy to install and I'm horrible at that sort of thing. Mainly I love the security of knowing that if there is a fire in the house the detector closest to it will tell the one in my bedroom to inform me of it and its location. I just recently had a daughter so this makes me more secure knowing that First Alert has our backs. I have almost died from a carbon monoxide leak before. I was lucky that my mom paid me a visit at the right time cause me and my animals were already asleep. Plus I'm one of those people that could burn water. I literally forgot I was boiling water until the alarm went off cause the pot was burning up. I'm so thrilled Smiley 360 and First Alert teamed up to give me this opportunity to try something new and protect my family.

Smoke and smoke/CO detectors were delivered quickly and easy to install. Programming them was also straightforward. They worked as advertised. Very pleased and would purchase from First Alert again!

This product is easy to set up and install. It communicates well with the others in the system. The product is very audible and will alarm you immediately.

Best CO Detector - 09/09/2017
Reviewer: Gerald Scheiber
This is the best rated Carbon Monoxide detector that rated the highest over all others. I love its ability for wireless communication with other First Alert wireless alarms. And when one detects an issue, all respond with a warning and its location.

I have three wireless First Alert alarms in my home for full coverage to alarm us in case of Carbon monoxide or Fire that might happen unnoticed without them. Thank you First Alert.

We like your product and use the wireless on remodel houses that would be hard to hard wire.
Actual battery service life depends on the particular design of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm and the environment in which it is installed. All kinds of alarm batteries specified in the user's manual are acceptable replacement batteries. Regardless of the manufacturer's suggested battery life, you MUST replace the batteries immediately once the unit starts "chirping" (the "low battery warning"). It is recommended that you change the batteries in your alarms when you change your clocks for daylight saving time. Also consider replacing your current alarms with 10-Year Life Alarms that never require a costly battery replacement for the ten year life of the alarm. This 10-Year series is available in smoke, carbon monoxide and combination alarms.
Other reasons include: It could be a different device or appliance such as a security system, monitor, carbon monoxide alarm, or other device which has a similar low battery or alert signal. Some of the same factors that cause unwanted alarms can cause intermittent alarms: dust and insects in the alarm or power interruptions in hardwired alarms. Improper wiring on AC or AC/DC smoke alarms. AC alarms will chirp every 5 seconds if the interconnect wire is grounded. The orange interconnect wire should NEVER be grounded; it should only be used to interconnect other smoke alarms or compatible devices.
