These units aren't fancy, and are smoke detectors only, i.e. no CO or heat detection. No problems. The reason I chose these rather than others is just that they are the same as the original units in my house. BTW, even though they are relatively inexpensive, if you need a lot of them, it can add up.
Follow up: I just downgraded this to 3 stars. This is NOT because the unit doesn't work, although how would I know? Rather, it is still more of a Q/C issue. I have had two whose batteries failed within less than 6 months. Now, this is easily fixed; however, when the unit starts beeping at 2am, it isn't a lot of fun to have to go get a ladder to disconnect the thing.
Another followup: Well, I have had these for a little over a year. I have now replaced ALL the batteries that came with the units. My recommendation is to do this before you install, and save yourself the problem of doing this in the middle of the night. I deducted another star for this really annoying and lousy quality control
Then order two of these USI 1204's. These are the perfect replacement. You don't have to mount the new base that comes with it, just remove the top part with the battery in it, pull out the plastic sleeve to activate the battery, and twist the new cover into the old mount. A green light should come on and you're "good to go". Good price, fast delivery, and easy to install.
The price was right but the product was oh so wrong! Waste of my time!
