First time using a 10 year smoke detector. Simple setup, instructions are clear and precise. Low cost and maintenance free. I will purchase more next time for my house.

Reviewer: Mike Kreidler
Am using these in employee restrooms due to people smoking in them. It has taken care of issue and being tamper proof is just what was needed.

The smoke detector was shipped out and delivered quickly. It was easy to install. Lets hope I never have to actually have it alarm due to a fire.
Reviewer: Sulaiman Aibana
It takes you few minutes to install with the instructions provided. The best thing I like about this smoke detector is I donít have to worry about changing batteries for 10 years. While most types last 5 years, this one lasts 10 years. It is a good buy for the price.
I like the concept. - 04/05/2013
Reviewer: Thomas Knowles
So far I have not had any problems,guess we will have to wait around for 10 years to find out for sure.
10 Years, give or take - 01/15/2013
Reviewer: Don Reese
Great idea, not having to change the battery every 6 months or so, but I installed mine in July 2008 and its giving the dead battery beep now. Didnt make it half of the supposed time. Still, when on sale I saved money over having to replace 9 or 10 batteries.
Reviewer: Karen Oelke
I bought this to put into my mothers home so she would not have to worry about changing the battery. What a great idea.
Q: How often do you need to change the batteries?
A: 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.
Q: What is the proper placement of smoke alarms?
A: It is important that you have the proper placement for your smoke alarms. Install your alarms at least 20 feet from appliances like furnaces and ovens, which produce combustion particles. Alarms should be at least 10 feet from high humidity areas like showers and laundry rooms, and at least 3 feet from heat/AC vents. Be sure to install a smoke alarm in each bedroom, one at the top of each stairwell, and one on every level.
Q: My smoke alarm keeps chirping and beeping. Why does my smoke alarm chirp intermittently?
A: It is likely that the reason your smoke alarm keeps chirping and beeping is that the battery is low. Whenever your smoke alarm keeps chirping, replace the battery immediately.
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.
Q: Why doesn't my smoke alarm sound when I push the test button?
A: It is important that you frequently test your smoke alarms. When you are testing your smoke alarm, there are a number of reasons why the alarm might not sound:
Q: Why does my smoke alarm go off when I install a battery or turn on the AC power?
A: It is normal for smoke alarms to go off and sound briefly (up to 5-10 seconds) when you install a new battery or when they are powered up. If the alarm continues to go off and no smoke is present, the cause may be one of the following:
Q: My smoke alarm keeps chirping, even with a new battery. What is causing this?
A: There are a number of possible causes for your smoke alarm to keep chirping even with a new battery.
Q: I lost my First Alert smoke alarm owner's manual. How can I get a new one?
A: First Alert smoke alarm owner's manuals are available online for download at no cost. Find your alarm in our Smoke Alarms section.
Q: Why does the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend that home smoke alarms be replaced after 10 years?
A: Smoke alarms have a limited life. Although each smoke alarm and all of its parts have passed many stringent tests and are designed to be as reliable as possible, any of these parts could fail over time. Therefore, you must test the devices weekly. The unit should be replaced immediately if it is not operating properly. The performance of smoke alarms older than 10 years is simply not reliable. To ensure your family's safety, all carbon monoxide and smoke/CO combination alarms need to be replaced every 5-7 years. All smoke alarms need to be replaced every 10 years.
If it's time to replace your alarms, consider the NEW 10-Year Life series and never have to worry about a battery replacement for the life of the alarm.10-Year alarms are available in smoke,carbon monoxide and combination alarms.
