Consumer tests rate this smoke alarm as "Good" and "Recommended"
15 separate and independent Consumer subscribers have consistantly rated this smoke alarm as 1 out of 5 (NB zero star ratings are not allowed by Consumer) since April 2018.
The Consumer Test for this product can not be trusted!!! It may only give "good" smoke alarm functioning for less than one third of the advertise life.
Disappointing that Consumer have ignored product reliability for such a crucial consumer home safety product !!
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
