Good Alarms
23 May 2015
By Covlad
, Plymouth
" Ive fitted these alarms in several student rented houses, easy to use and good all round interlinked alarms.
The battery plate is secured with a small cross head (philips) screw. This is a very tight fitting and be careful not to round the screw head or put too much pressure on and break the plastic housing. The design is good but the screw pilot hole made need to be increased slightly if you experience it too tight.

Easy Replacement
26 Mar 2015
By al34
, Tamworth
" I bought 2 of these units to replace my existing smoke alarms as the old owns although still working were looking grim against my newly painted ceilings. The good news was that screw fix had the same detectors in stock and all I had to do was connect them to the existing wiring and bingo fully protected for at least another 5 years. Nice units and alarm very loud too. "

Excellent Smoke Alarm
10 Mar 2015
By NzFluffy
, Newcastle upon Tyne
" Got 2 of these plus a 1 BRK heat detector mains / battery powered.
Well made and reliable off a quality manufacturer.
Safety is top of the list hence the upgrade to these alarms that will warn of any fire / heat issues 24hrs a day.
Recommend 100% and will use these heat / smoke detectors again.

Neat Replacement Smoke Alarm
26 Feb 2015
By HandyEd
, West Sussex
" Replacement for old (more than 10 yrs.) mains smoke alarm with battery backup. These are neat easy to install and do the same job of more expensive models. I read the reviews before buying - good tip to buy the backing plate. Having installed one I was so impressed I bought another to replace old one in another part of the house. "

A must try product...

By maccol

" This is one of the preferred models of smoke alarms we install. Quick and easy to install with good connection block if interconnecting more than 1 alarm and a great price.
With a battery 'back up' (battery included too) you have no worries if there's a power cut.
If you haven't tried then I'd definitely recommend trying before buying a more expensive and fiddly brand. "

Fire Detectors in date?

By fred9696
, Weymouth
" They have been so reliable that I missed understanding they should be replaced every 10 years or so.
Fortunately they were available at my local depot and took only minutes to replace.
Don't forget to test them regularly!
Have a peace of mind that's not misplaced. "

" 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 Nozzil
, 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. "
