Rated 5 out of 5Â by muarrif Easy to install mains Smoke Al
Reasonably priced smoke alarm for use with mains power and has a backup 9V battery. Easy to install with clear instructions.
Three connectors: Brown, Blue, White (Live, Nutral and Interlink).
Remember earth should not be connected!
Easy installation and if you are replacing an existing alarm then it shouldn't take more than 5mins.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kasi Easy to fit
I have fitted these alarms in several rented houses, easy to fit and good all round years.
This is a very tight fitting and easy to remove and change battery

Rated 2 out of 5 Poor installation design
This alarm looks neat but the cable and plug for installation are badly designed.
Firstly the plug is huge so you will have to cut a 32mm hole through your ceiling. Secondly the cable is far too short so even with a junction box directly above it is difficult/impossible to later remove the alarm from below to replace the backup battery. You can get a surface mount box to effectively turn the base into a ceiling rose but this is very ugly.
Instead we got the 700 series which includes a proper base for mains installation requiring a hole in the ceiling only for the cable(s). This also looks way better than a surface mount box and is lower profile. In addition the 700 series has a push fit mechanism for the alarm into the base which is also easier to use.
