I may need to jump on this. Our house is 10 years old, so it's probably time to replace the smoke detectors. I just need to figure out if I want these dual type smoke, cheap single type (maybe just closest to kitchen), or combined smoke/CO. Then I think I'm going to try to integrate them into my Vera Z-Wave network.

Needed to replace mine, and I don't think it will get much lower. Thanks for posting.

Don't CO detectors have to be replaced every few years? Wouldn't this just lead to more expensive replacements? Plus drastically limits your options.

The general "rule" is 7 years for CO and 10 years for smoke alarms. The bigger issue is that CO alarms shouldn't be installed on ceilings.

Quote :
The specific gravity of Carbon Monoxide is 0.9657 (with normal air being 1.0), this means that it will float up towards the ceiling because it is lighter than regular air. However, when a build up of dangerous levels of CO gas is taking place, this is nearly always due to a heat source that is not burning its fuel correctly (motor vehicle exhaust fumes are an exception). This heated air can form a layer near your ceiling which can prevent the Carbon Monoxide from reaching a ceiling detector.

For this reason we suggest that it is best to mount your detectors on the walls at least a couple of feet below the height of the ceiling.

Thanks for posting - in for six. I have been waiting for the price to drop, as I waited too long the last time they had a price drop.

Per the latest building code (at least in IL) you need one smoke detector per bedroom and one per level (common space). So if you have a 4 bedroom house with 2 levels and a basement...you need 4 + 1 + 1 +1 = 7 total

I have very old smoke detectors and the wiring seem to be different from these Kidde (see pics attached). Can I do something to make the new ones fit and is it easy? TIA.

The plug probably won't match, but if you can replace a wall switch, you can do this. See the wire nuts in your second picture? Turn off the power, untwist the wire nuts, use them to attach the leads on the new detector. The hardest part is figuring out which breaker turns off the power.

One more thing: I'd replace all your old detectors and disconnect all of them before you start, just in case.
