Every year, 70 percent of all home fire deaths occur in homes with no alarms or no working alarms, while nearly one quarter of smoke alarms in reported fires are not working. Installing smoke alarms like the i9040 in your home can provide reliable protection in case of fire. And because the i9040 offers several user-friendly features, you'll always know when it's working properly, and when the batteries need to be replaced.
Compact Unit Provides Protection Against Home Fires
Measuring just four inches in diameter, the i9040 is smaller and more discrete than traditional smoke alarms, which makes it an ideal choice for smaller spaces or for blending in with your decor. It installs quickly without wires, and includes a test button that allows you to periodically check the circuitry, horn, and battery function. Also, a chirping sound makes it clear when it's time to replace the battery.
Ionization Sensor Technology
To ensure early detection of fires, the i9040 use ionization sensing technology Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with fast flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated with slow smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Kidde strongly recommends that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home.
Compliancy and Warranty Information
The i9040 alarm is UL listed and is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

My first run in with the alarm was actually Christmas day when my family burnt bacon in the kitchen. Sure enough the entire house was SCREAMING, these things are loud. If there is smoke in your house, honestly these sensors will detect it WAY before your nose or eyes do and mine were all on the second floor!
For the money you cant go wrong, they definitely do their job.
> The i9040 comes with a "saucer"-like base (which the instructions call a "bracket) you install on your ceiling (hardware included). It is much easier to install this featherweight plastic bracket than other designs.
> To install the detector in the saucer, you put the detector in place and twist. You can deinstall it with a twist in the other direction. So if you are planning to do alot of smoky cooking, you can simply take the smoke detector down and put it in a drawer or another room.
> Because you can easily de-install the detector, you can replace the battery on your countertop--which is much easier than fumbling over your head.
> The unit has a "hush" function. If you push the test button when the alarm is going off, it will "hush" for 8 minutes. This is a nice function when cooking. Of course, you'll need a ~ 2' stick to push it. A ½" diameter by 18" dowel rod works well, and fits in my kitchen utility drawer.
> Battery installation is easy: A plastic ribbon makes it easy to pull out an old battery. The contacts are simple metal strips--you don't have to pry a 9-volt snap-socket apart.
> A 9-volt battery is included. A no-name brand, but it works. (Otherwise, at the very low price of this detector, a new battery could cost nearly as much as the detector. So, the "free" battery is notable).
> The i9040 is much smaller (4" in diameter) than my previous alarm (5 ½"). Not a problem for a new installation, but in my case, one of the old mounting holes is visible and needs to be filled it.Read more ›
If you've got pets and/or a ceiling fan then, maybe a bigger unit with lots of slots for easy vacuuming would be better.
They have a mount which secures to the wall, the sensor unit can be taken down by rotating off the mount. They even come with batteries.
