These are one of those few things in which you get what you pay for!


FYI: There are disagreements as to whether the combined units (both smoke and monoxide) are a wise choice.

At this point, my recommendation is that if you start getting alarms setting-off, have your home checked by a professional to determine if you have a faulty alarm(s) or a faulty mechanical unit.

You have had three units fail! That is very concerning!
Appreciate the info. You're right. Spouse checked it out. They were +10 year old monitors with batteries at least 5 years old; and they all set off within 24 hours of each other. The new monitor says everything is clear.

And, OP, my apologies for sidetracking your thread.
