"I was surprised how small it was compared to the one it replaced, however it is neat and easy to fit. I was also impressed that the battery supply is by two AAA batteries rather than the usual PP3. let's hope it does its job when asked"

First Alert Optical Smoke Alar
15 Mar 2014
By Dodgyharry
, Plymouth
"I bought this to replace an alarm that would go off at the simplest thing ie opening an oven door.
This is excellent, easy to fit and pleasantly compact. I have not rated performance or reliability as not had it very long, but certainly looks good and well made which is always a good indicator

Simple, Compact, funny colour!
23 Dec 2013
By SilverAppleyard

"Nice and compact simple alarm but it not a pure white as the photo suggests, has a purple hue to it!
It takes 2 AAA batteries which are including and require a screw driver to replace which I thought should not be necessary. It should be as simple as can be."

First Alert Smoke Alarm ....
5 Nov 2013
By Senyah
, Norfolk
"The functions on this Alarm are useful, but in
honesty, it does not give me the confidence
I had in my previous one. I have marked it
three in an effort to be fair, as others may find
it more to their liking.
