I’ve installed installed two of these Kidde brand combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in my elder parents home. I have one in my own home as well and have found them all to be reliable and trouble free. What attracted me to this model were its many features: First, it has a low profile, attractive and unobtrusive design. Second and perhaps most important, it has a voice speaking function that, in addition to the 85db alert horn, will speak out clear warnings: “FIRE, FIRE” or “DANGER: CARBON MONOXIDE”. We rely on these detectors to warn us, especially at night when we are sleeping. Awakening to this detector from a deep sleep helps orient you quickly by telling you the specific danger — clearly and unmistakably. Another favorite feature is ease of installation. It was a breeze and truly could not be simpler. A screwriver is all you need. A small power drill/driver would speed the process, but is not necessary. Two screws into the ceiling or wall and you are done with the mounting bracket. The detector then just clicks in to place with a clockwise flick of the wrist. This is a do-it-yourselfer’s dream. It doesn’t get any easier! Battery maintenance is easy too as all you need do is turn the detector counter-clock wise a few clicks, and down it comes. You slide open the battery cover, take out the old batteries and pop in the new. Finally, the price is right! Under $40 for a unique life-safety device that is quickly installed and easily maintained.
