First Alert Dual Sensor Photoelectric/Ionization Smoke and Fire Alarm with 10-Year Sealed Battery
My three First Alert 10-year smoke alarms Model SA340 that I placed in three rooms of my house in 2012 were due for replacement. I had been _very_ happy with them. So, of course, I was going to replace them with new First Alert alarms, and I decided to upgrade to these FA Dual Sensor Photoelectric/Ionization Smoke and Fire Alarms with 10-Year Sealed Batteries Model SA3210. The First Alert Store offered a three-pack--perfect for me! I was delighted to discover that these SA3210 alarms fit on the same mounting brackets as the SA340 alarms, so I didn't have to drill new holes in the walls! The new smoke and fire alarms work right out of the box. This was an excellent transaction, and I am a very satisfied customer.

Hard to find Recommended Smoke and Fire Alarm
I have had 7 of the First Alert Dual Sensor alarms on and off in my home for about 37 years now. At times I could not get this model, and had to resort to those by another manufacturer. I have owned different SA3210 models as they progressed from 9 volt, to AA, to sealed batteries. It is the most reliable fire in my opinion. It only goes off when we are cooking a smoky dinner or are near an open bathroom door with a lot of moisture. The big box stores have not been carrying this model, why I do not know. Hopefully I will continue to get it online, especially now that NY State requires sealed batteries. Thank you for making such a quality and reliable product!

No more false alarms!!!!!
I purchased this detector because the one I had kept going off. At first I replaced the battery, that wasn't the problem. It was the humidity. This one is perfect.

Replacement for 9 volt battery units
replacing the 9 volt battery version after 10 years of service. Purchased on website - easy and quick. Shipping free and quick Instillation instructions were clear and the installation process were smoothly. Base of this unit match size and anchor hold of the old unit - so no marks on the wall.

This is a very useful item because it lasts for 10 years without having to change the battery. Also it has two methods of detecting smoke and fire.

I ordered a total of four detectors. Of the four, so far, two have activated for no apparent reason. If they continue, I will
Return them for a refund.

I ordered 6 smoke detectors to install as required by our local fire code. I selected these detectors since they covered both smoldering and fast fires with ionic and photoelectric sensors. I ordered the carbon monoxide detectors EWill separately. The installation was easy and the directions clear. The real test is how they work! The hall detector did appropriately respond to some mild cooking smoke. No false alarms to date after 1 month. Will test regularly to assure they respond and batteries remain good.

First Alert Dual Sensor
Product arrived fairly quickly and in good condition. Installation was straight forward and simple. Very happy with the whole process. Happy to have unit installed since it was highly rated by Consumer Reports.

These replaced two competitive photoelectric units that gave me six false alarms in four months. So far, no false alarms with First Alert

Purchased 6 detectors. 5 of 6 installed seamlessly, but the 6th was defective DOA. Fortunately, First Alert sent a replacement quickly so all 6 are now installed and working as expected.

I've been trying to purchase a dual sensor smoke detector with a lithium battery. I bought a First Alert Ionization sensor alarm from Costco, it started to chirp false alarms after one year. So far so good, it's only been two months .

A Must Buy Item
I purchased this unit because it has the sealed 10 year battery, and can detect flames as well as smoke. This is a must buy for peace of mind and ease of maintenance.

I ordered 6 of these alarms to update the safety of my home. When they arrived in just a couple days, I was quite impressed! Aside from endangering my life on a stepladder, installation was a breeze. The hardest part was lugging the step ladder around. And figuring out some of the instructions about alignment, which could have been written a little better. But common sense prevailed. I got the job done. I'm a happy customer.

Has met all expectations
Bought this model to replace 10yr old models which lacked sealed battery. When recd, determined that all the ones I'd purchased tested okay. For me, this models universal mounts indeed worked fine with pre-existing screw holes from multiple vendors/models. Although my old models sometimes gave false positives for bath mist & kitchen fumes, these new models have so far been very well-behaved. Have not yet fired up the woodstove for winter... Hope the sealed battery indeed lasts 10 yrs!
