At the end of the day, you only want 1 to beep.

Install 1 in each bedroom, each floor, mechanical room, etc.
Thanks, I was asking because I have a rental property in the Montreal area. Trying to sort out the legal requirements

Just bought 3 but what a joke at HD Belleville. I could not find the product. Asked an associate for help. They couldn't find them either. Go to check computer, then comes back and says they just got delivered on big shipment. They would be available tomorrow.

I just kept looking through large section and sure enough not only was the item in the wrong spot on the shelf, they had boxes of them on higher shelf! Very bad HD.

Anyway, I have 3 of them that will be installed this weekend.

Thanks, all my CO alarms are plug in so this is a good backup. How long is the 9V battery supposed to last?

The alarms should be checked regularly though. It’s an oft used landlord excuse to check in every 6 months .

Interesting, would that be because the battery is removable?

There seems to be some stock in Montreal area, why would HD even sell these in store if they are not legal?
These aren't "not legal", as you can (probably) supplement the bylaw requirement with additional smoke detectors should you choose.
Again, *everyone* should double check their local building codes/bylaws to ensure they comply. Your insurance claim (and in some cases negligence responsibility if you rent) may depend upon it.

Smoke/Carbon monoxide detector requirements can be 'complicated' as they may apply differently to private residence housing, rental housing, multi-unit/apartment residences (units themselves and shared spaces), and commercial spaces. They may also apply differently dependent upon the age of the building.

How would these be for a garage with cars in them. None of my smoke detectors expire for almost 9 years. And the closest one expired is Aug 2023.

But realize my garage doesnt have one. Would the CO go off when the cars are pulled in and out of the garage
You can install CO detectors in any level, (wall or ceiling) because CO gas get's dispersed.
Propane detectors get installed near the floor because Propane gas is heavier, that's why you see these near the floor on RVs and Travel Trailers
Also note that these have optimal operating temperatures, if it's placed in a very cold unheated garage, it's very likely to not detect or have false alarms.

You better get a 10 years battery one if it wasnt hardwire to begin with.
You dont want to go back each year to change the battery.
And tenant WILL take out the 9V battery from alarm for something else.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

A few days later (in the middle of the night) our entire house was filled with smoke & neither detector went off. Took them both down, they looked very dated inside & obviously didn't work. Don't take the risk If in doubt, buy new ones. Test the ones you have with smoke as opposed to pressing the test button. We replaced everything with hardwired smoke/CO with battery backup, alarm/voice command. We also bought a fire extinguisher. Yes, it was expensive for worth it. Learn from our mistake.
I don't test my detectors by the button on the detector alone. I also test my detectors by smoke in a spray can called "CRC Smoke Test"

So is there any data that suggests that you should actually replace the battery every 12 months or less? It seems excessive.

I always thought co2 was more dense than air and thus would be more practical to be on the floor for a detector?

But a quick Google search shows that I’m wrong. Will buy one. Thanks OP

Thanks OP, ordered 2 with free shipping, won't both go to store - even showing good stock.
Last time I went to the store there I could not find anything due to staff shortage+laziness combined.

Thanks op needed new ones for my place, free shipping as no store close by. Seems like a great deal especially with the battery included. Ordered 2.
