5.0 out of 5 stars nice bit of kit
i've got this smoke alarm in the kithen and it doesn't go off when you lightly burn your toast, create steam or manage to to other daily things that tends to create false alarms. I have however tested this alarm by lighting paper near it (as I was a bit nervous that it wasn't going off at all!) and it did set the alarm off. Looks inoffensive and works well... you can't...

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
I bought this alarm last July. I assumed I would have 10 worry free years - not the case. After 8 months I have been woken every night this week with a bleep...bleep... obviously its' 10 year battery has run out already.
Very disappointing and a real nuisance as I now have to go to the trouble of replacing not just the battery but the whole unit!

Product was made in December 2013, as it's 10 year battery it's not so bad but still a bit old (saying the battery starts running down as soon as it's made).
Bought to replace one that failed after 4 years and 12 days, so I hope this lasts better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable, 5 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: First Alert Photoelectric 10 Year Battery Smoke Alarm,SA700LUK (DIY & Tools)
Good looking unit, good mounting and unobrusive. However,two weeks after instalation, my wife and I were awakend in the middle of the night by the alarm. No smoke, no smell, total confusion, near heart attack. Reset button was inoperative and the only way that I counld shut the thing up was to remove it from it's mounting. No hammer available in the upper landing, surprisingly. Next morning I used a pencil to switch on the dismounted unit and carried out a test in the fresh air. O.k. for the first ten minutes then 'Alarm'. Would not reset or shutup until the unit was switched off. Into the rubbish bin after removing the battery for recycling. Will try to get a better product from Kiddie

Put up this alarm and it does what it says, ie it doesn't go off if you burn the toast. Great service from supplier with great product. Just need to check it once a week and no batteries for 10 years.

Arrived on time, fixed it in 10 minutes and tested. Lithium-Iron battery should last 10 years. Used it to replace alkaline battery powered unit which needed new battery every 2 years.

Gets set off by bathroom steam, not the end of the world but I bought it because it said it wouldn't. Still a good alarm, just need to keep the bathroom shut.

Neat, discreet and easy to fit but beware the 10year battery. I fitted two of these in 2012 and the ten year battery in each lasted just two years....

Seems good product, picked up smoke from fat, I was grilling sausages, from a fair distance and was very audible. Doesn't go of with normal cooking.
