Technically it work on two AA battery, but only as "backup" so I don't think it would last long on those

Don't carbon monoxide detectors need to be installed no more than 5 feet of the ground - preferably lower? CO doesn't rise like smoke.

We have been using these since the Lowe’s specials and we have not had any false alarms as well as they have worked great.

Replaced all but one of the original Kiddie Smoke alarms ($200 ) that have gone off 5-7 times with false alarms during the 3 years with these.

Thanks OP, hopefully theses are the interconnected ones.

Cheers!

There is nothing like waking up at 2-3am in the middle of winter with your house looking like a night club of lights.

New construction requires a strobe light as well, this doesn't seem to have that. Too bad.

Do we know that it won't last? Would love to buy these to use wireless.

You mean the ones that builders would install? The code is based on when the permit were pulled I thought?

It lasts several months on batteries. Definitely not as long as those kidde smoke detectors on batteries.

Well it's been the code for quite a while now.. So likely most permits would require it. Perhaps not on renos. Not certain

It’s only for the original build permit correct?

Not required for rentals or resales?

I have all Kiddie brand detectors that link together (I guess by sound?), would this one link to them or do they only link to their own brands?

I have a 2006 built house and have not replaced the original builder ones. Our town keeps sending reminder that we have to change the ones that are older than 10 years. I have never replaced battery in mine, so does it mean mine is hardwired to power and I can use this one to replace them ?
