I had to look through several stores to finally realize, the only place I could replace my smoke alarm was by your web site. I am perfectly satisfied and trust my life with your products. Thanks

The First Alert smoke and carbon monoxide alarm in our motor coach reached its end of life date and so I was looking for a similar unit to replace it. Looked on Amazon, Granger and a few other suppliers. None had a proper description of the unites they were selling. Some where higher priced a few were lower priced but nowhere did they assure me that the alarm I was getting was a current product and not something that had been sitting on a shelf for a couple of years. The First Alert site was easy to understand what I was buying. The product came quickly.

I ordered this to replace an existing smoke detector. Like that both carbon monoxide and smoke detector are combined and that new detector fits into existing hardware

Twice the protection - 04/16/2018

These units take care of two protections at the same time......smoke and carbon monoxide, all in one small unit.

I looked locally in Home Depot and Walmart to replace 3 Kidde units installed by the fire dept. 10 years ago. Purchasing a three pack was cheaper and it included shipping. Easy to install. Could use some of the same holes left from the Kidde units. Would buy from the First Alert Store again.

Very happy with this model. Been around for a while. Easy battery access. Easy spin on one off.
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.
