You can ring your local fire station and get smoke alarms fitted for free

​Not really for free as we're paying for that priviledge through our council tax. The more people abuse that system, the more the fire service will need to bid for in the next financial year, and then tax revenue increases. Those that can afford £6.79 should absolutely buy their own and not look for handouts from public funded services designed to safeguard the disadvantaged.

Free to who? An overstretched & underfunded brigade? Leave them for the people who get paracetamol on prescription.

Well said

There are some pretty bad reviews for this product on Amazon - although cheap, if they're potentially not fit for purpose is it worth the risk?

No they haven't, contacted 3 times, never received my replacement

It's Kidde (pronounced Kid). not Kiddie (pronounced Kiddy). Just so you know what brand you're fitting!

This is a good price, however I would highly recommend spending a few pounds extra and get the smoke detector with a built-in carbon monoxide detector as well.

P&P should be added to the cost. Then one should quote the Prime price.

Not really abuse when it's a system available to all. They should limit it to pensioners and benefits, but they don't so it's a service for all as designed...

That's not a 10 year one! Have fun regularly replacing batteries :-(

No point. Brexit will see the end of the world in 2 years anyway.

It's that sort of mentality that has led to such high costs for council tax and national insurance payments. If those that can afford their own alarms bought them instead of asking the overstretched, under-funded fire service to fit them for free, then there'd be more money in the pot and our tax wouldn't be increasing by as much per year. Just think people need to stop expecting free handouts and start taking responsibility for their own safety. But then that's after over 15years working for the emergency services. Maybe lay people have a clearer picture of the daily abuse of emergency systems and services which is costing a fortune to the tax payer.

They actually knocked at my dads as they were visiting houses in the area whilst visiting a primary school , they took down battery operated 1s my dad had fitted and fitted there's and a year later there dead , and you cant replace the battery's so id think again about the so called freebies, and most people who are so called "disadvantaged" usually live in social housing where fire sensors etc have to be fitted by law , its people who actually pay there taxes and go to work and own there own houses that really are disadvantaged in the real world we live in .

Was going to order half a dozen to replace all mine but read the 29 odd one star reviews, all stating that the alarms fail within weeks/months. Cause for concern if over 20% of your reviewers state the same fault.

Couldn't agree more RedBull. The mentality of "they will have to fix it" breeds and encourages the lack of responsibility that is costing this country the financial success that is earned by those who work for it. Everyone should take responsibility for themselves and not perpetually be carried by others. And that includes fire alarms...

These are good alarms but they have a tendancy to go off randomly at 2am. Can be confirmed in the reviews.

Nah, the council just needs to stop handing out freebies to those who don't need it. People will take a service that's available to them, that's exactly what its for... If it's not for a certain group, it shouldn't be offered. Free bus passes are available at a certain age, don't see why smoke alarms couldn't be too.

Now that I agree with.

Battery life does not last 10 years. Mine lasted about 3 years and after replacing the batteries it constantly gave false activations. Still good value even if they last a few years.
