"Bought these to replace missing smoke alarms in my house. Was easy to wire in the connector to the terminal block that was already in the ceiling. As others have pointed out, you really need a lining box to screw the mounting plate into and to house the connector plug.
Seems to work well

Top Smoke Alarm
10 May 2012
By
, Grantham
"I bought this to replace a similar model that had just failed after almost 10 years. With the same electrical connector and mounting plate, it fit exactly where the old one had been. The manufacturer (BRKDicon) service department were also brilliant; an engineer even phoned me back to chat through the fault with the old alarm (great customer service even if the old alarm was knackered!). Great product at a great price."

The smoke alarm of choice
2 Aug 2011

"These alarms use regular batteries as back-up as opposed to capacitors or own brand etc.
Can add as many as necessary for alarm system plus different types of same make.
Excellent price and never had any fail yet.

Excellent Low Cost Smoke Alarm

"As a tradesman who has installed many of these Smoke Alarms.
One criticism is that to comply with wiring regs, you should also purchase a Surface Mounting Kit..

"Poor design - you need a 1.2 inch hole in the ceiling effectively just to ger 2 wires through.
No idea how effective the alarm is (thankfully)"

"Less sensitive that the model I bought this to replace, but as it's next to the kitchen, that's no bad thing. This one doesn't go off unless the toast is actually burnt, whereas the previous one would tell me when it was just cooked!"

"A really good replacement for my existing system.
Comes well packaged and a good set of instructions.
The only isse I had was connecting it to my wiring as you need to use a connector/junction block."
