Long reliable economic life
18 Sep 2014
By WoodpeckingChippy

" I have just had to replace some original Dicon 670M units. On dismounting the old units I note that the production date was 1998 JAN 13.
Now that is what I call excellent value in view of just a five year guarantee.
I used the current production of this product as replacements.

" Bought this to replace defective alarm in a rental property. Same model so just a matter of using the old backing plate. 2 minute job to fit. Best value I found of that model locally. "

Value smoke alarm
9 Jun 2011

" This is an economical detector head that complies with building regulations. Comprehensive fitting instructions made it easy to install. The 10 minute timer is a useful feature as I was installing one in the kitchen and the previous property owners had removed this detector head to prevent false alarms - crazy I know!! "

" Cheap and cheerful, but does the job and meets the regs. Easy to install and seems to be working, but I've not set the house on fire yet, so it's hard to be entirely sure! ;-) "

Mains Ionisation Alarm
19 Oct 2009
By DrMark
, Buxton
" The key thing about this product is that it has an internal battery. This means that when it is first plugs in its charges itself up and will cover several hours if the mains is disconnected. After mains disconnection it shows a red light when the battery is dwindling and again whilst it recharges afterwards.
Hence, getting a mains alarm with a 9 V battery backup is a waste of time and money, unless you really expect to the mains to be down for a prolonged period of time, such as days.
The only downside is that the connector supplied is, as with the other alarms in the range awkward in that it protrudes at least an inch to the back of the alarm and you need to buy a sub base in most instances For installation. "

Back up battery
9 Nov 2009
By senex
, Renfrewshire
" The first review for this unit appears to be incorrect.
The Dicon 'M' range has no back up battery facility at all.
I have one in a series with others where backup is not critical.
If mains power goes down of a winter night when all are abed, even for a few hours, single alarm installations are vulnerable. "
