Our Take on First Alert Smoke Alarm
Along with installing new carbon monoxide detectors in our new home, we also felt it was time to purchase new smoke detectors. Since our new home is larger than our old home, it was important to us to be able to install high-quality smoke detectors throughout the home without spending a fortune. When we stumbled across the First Alert Smoke Alarm, we were confident we had found a budget friendly smoke detector that would also be effective in protecting our family in case of a fire.
When the First Alert Smoke Alarms arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the 9-volt batteries were included. After skimming over the instructions, we quickly went to work installing them throughout the house – this process was simple and we were able to cross another “new home” task off our list. After a few months, however, the battery ran low in a few of the detectors – the chirping noise that indicates low battery is annoying, but is a good way to alert when the battery needs to be changed.
Overall, we are very happy with the First Alert Smoke Alarms we have installed. When we replace the batteries every six months, it is easy to test and determine if the detectors are still working. Also, when there is a false alarm – such as dinner burning in the kitchen – the simple mute button is an easy way to stop the alarming without having to wave the smoke away from the detector. The First Alert Smoke Alarm is a great, affordable product that everyone should consider when outfitting their home.
