alarms for homes
That said, based on their own research, Doug Mahoney calls the SA511CN2 3ST the best basic smoke alarm. The feedback on the SA511B is even better, albeit more limited: 4. 7 stars at Amazon, 4. 6 stars at Home Depot, but that's only based on around 20 reviews across the two sites. The First Alert SA521CN 3ST Est. $40 is a hardwired version of the battery operated First Alert SA511CN2 3ST/SA511B interconnectable smoke detector.

T63 x 5. 63 x 1. 75 inches, it won’t attract too much attention. On the top of the detector, there is a recessed zone on which resides an elevated button press to silence the CO/smoke alarm and hold it to test weekly, a CO/GAS indicator, a Power/Smoke indicator and four circular cut outs for the speaker. There are no other flashy design elements, such as a large LED light, so compared with other ‘smarter’ detectors, it may look a bit plain, but it does have everything one would expect from a smoke/CO/gas/fire alarm. If you decide to do it yourself, the installation process is not really that difficult: first, you need to remove the mounting bracket by twisting the main body of the alarm, attach it to the wall and you will now connect the three wires from the wall to the Quick Connector as following: black to the hot side of the AC wire, white to neutral and yellow, if you need to interconnect with other existing alarms the Power has to be turned off prior to this operation.
