Rated 5 out of 5 by Value for money I have installed loads of these smoke alarms for HMO properties easy to install and great value for money 22 Sep 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality product, great value Good quality at a reasonable price. Fitted several of these smoke detectors now with no problems. Come with battery included which is great. 11 Sep 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great product, but not white! This is a great product. There is nothing wrong with the functionality or reliability of it. However, if you're expecting this to be white, be warned. This is far from white. It's not even off white. It's a grey colour which is just crazy when the BRK CB232 Dicon Surface Mounting Kit is brilliant white. So we have a newly painted white ceiling, with a white surface mounting kit and a grey alarm. It just ruins the whole effect. 7 Sep 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Replacement Wired Smoke Alarm Had to replace two old tired looking,hard wired, smoke alarms. These were just the job, not too expensive and easy to fit. 5 Sep 2016

BS 5839 Part 6?

I bought these assuming they are up to the current standards.

The council have stated it must be up to BS 5839 Part 6 LD Grade D

Anyone know if this complies?

Thanks

Answer: 
Yes, the BRK 670MBX (679) Dicon Ionisation Alarm with 9V Battery Backup is a mains powered alarm that can be linked with other BRK smoke or heat alarms by wiring them in a series or daisy chained hardwire interlinked network. Interlinking the alarms smoke or heat in a parallel connection is not recommended as this will double the current and damage internal components.
