Probably thinking of a different deadly gas that we live around ;P
Try find the model number instructions online. I've read you can mount them from knee level to above the door frame.
I stand corrected, well sit corrected (y) Could have sworn i read that somewhere.
I just realized that my CO alarm is on the ceiling. I need to move it this weekend!
*it's actually slightly lighter according to google. By the time it reaches the ceiling you're probably a gonner though so best to keep them installed around knee level unless the instructions say otherwise
(lol) Love some of the comments from the keyboard warriors. If you bought them, well done. I have two and I’ve saved over £200 on individual components alone.
Samsung S21 is about £700 RRP. Over the past 3 months, most sellers sold it for £500-600. To me £700 is irrelevant, as that's not the usual price. I don't know if this was reduced to £70, maybe that was Amazon normal price.i don't think they had it at £180. So to me £43 is reduced from £70, not from £180. It does not matter anyway, deal is gone. BTW, when Amazon sold this for £43.77, another seller had it for £46.15, that was the best next price.
Im still not understanding you, was reduced to £70 so that is the reduced from price? doesn't matter amazons previous price to determine true market value, if amazon has a product at £100 from say £119.99 rrp (with other sellers selling at £110), but then continue to reduce the £100 price by £5 instalments 10 times, what before price would you quote?
I know, but this tells me the price over the past days was under £70, so this was reduced from £70 to £43, not from £180 when they never sold it for £180. As I said, it was a good price, but the RRP is ridiculous.
Off course is £180 now, because is out of stock. Once it comes back, they will claim the previous price was £180 regardless they didn't have the product.
i'm sure 2 of these were fitted for free in my parents house, rubbish, the replace date says 2024 or 2025 i think but both were beeping within a year of being fitted, a year ago if not longer - sealed units so i could not replace the battery. had to buy similar from the same brand that would fit into the same 'docks' drilled into the ceiling.
After being woken up in the early hours due to false alarms, ended up storing in sealed box and still went off, no way to turn off and have to pay to return them makes them pretty useless!
Made in China, bought recently.
Excellent and Which Best Buy, quick to sound (78%).
Reviews aren’t good to say the least......

This is the same deal as last month (may have been the month before actually) where people were returning these to BT because the devices only had a few years life left in them. BT obviously clearing out very old stock, so no need to panic about missing this deal XD
not able to purchase. Sold out. What a shame!
Red hot - good spot and thanks for posting! Have been looking at a couple of these for a while now, but baulked at the price. This makes it a little more easy to swallow. Let's hope they honour the price!
As I said, based on my experience with their products I wouldn't even have Fireangel alarms for free - you can't take chances on reliability with fire alarms. I would rather pay for a decent brand.
I was struggling with our fire angel ones but you need to fit batteries before it will allow you to fit it to the base.. I assume it's so people don't remove the batteries and refit them. Clever idea actually. I've got a similar model - not had them long - they seem very sensitive to me... Guess that could be seen as a good thing though
Batteries are replaceable on this model! Plus you DID have them for free XD (lol)
I had 2 of these fitted for free by the local fire service. Both failed within 2 years due to batteries running out. The batteries are not replaceable. I personally would never buy these - I wouldn't even have them for free.
Fire brigade installed a couple in my parents' house, sealed units that say 5yr but only last 2 or 3 before they beep warning of low battery. It's a very loud shrill, incessant beep. Newer/retail models no longer sealed so you can replace the battery.
Yep return postage was free, I went on live chat and said it’s not as described as it should last 10 years but would only last 6. I said they could either refund me 40% of the cost or return it for a full refund. They didn’t even acknowledge the 40% offer and just generated me a label. Presumably they must’ve had quite a few of these now!
Did you get the return postage paid? Asking me to pay for it.
Same issue here - September 2017 so not good enough for the price. I’ve emailed BT but will hop on web chat tomorrow. Shame, I’ll probably pick one up from Google whilst the 10% offer is on the Google Store.
Yep! I arranged mine via Live Chat (as when trying the "Return" option from the orders screen no one got back to me) Already got my refunds now, which is nice. Just a shame they weren't up front about the expiry dates in the first place.
Are returns free?

Google Nest Protect 2nd Generation Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm - Wired & Battery Versions both £79.99 at Amazon£79.99 Free P&P FreeAmazon Deals
I have two of these (wired) - they're brilliant - even have a built in automatic night light for when walking along the landing without lights on.
Just got my battery version and similar to you, mine's a week 49 2020 if I'm trading the serial right. (Not opened yet.)
If anyone is concerned, my order of 3 just turned up (wired version) all made in week 51 2020 (December 14th-20th 2020). Very happy with only losing 4 months
Did not know that but makes sense
With regards to them being on a separate circuit, not anymore, they should be on the lighting circuit as when the battery warning sound came on people used to turn the smoke alarm off via the consumer unit, but being on the lighting circuit you're forced to change the batteries or smoke alarm, as everyone needs lighting.

Not the same but there are interconnected devices available that also provide remote notifications. Example with leading manufacturers below but slightly more complicated to set up/less friendly user interface aico.co.uk/why-aico/technology/smartlink/ combined with aico.co.uk/product/ei1000g-smartlink-gateway/ or as described here with the connected alarms plus Smart Gateway fireangel.co.uk/pro-connected/ I think Aico and Fireangel (terrible name!) in general are trusted brands but not sure how reliable and truly smart (ie not just in function but ease of use) any of these products are that are made by traditional manufacturers who are trying to get into smart tech. Reviews of them on Amazon are reasonable but not outstanding (like with the Nest Protect)
Are there any alternatives to these, I really like the idea of connected devices, but vehemently dispise Google :)
Good point, I didn’t see that.

I don't know how Fire Angel can claim this type of battery life. I and my family have had over twenty o these, and ALL failed between two thnd three years. One even just after a year. IIRC they contain a 3.6v battery.
10 year battery my @rse! Bought 2 of these about 3 years ago, both died after less that 2 years. We've now switched back to the smoke alarms which take a replaceable 9 volt battery
But does it know when I'm cooking
So these fail after 1-2 years. What are people using instead? I'm after two reliable ones
Your mains wired ones are probably linked more than 1 together with say hall, landing etc. If you replace with these you won't have that feature. Also, the mains ones are designed to work off mains and have a battery backup so (in theory) will always work.
The Scottish laws have been delayed for 12 months, so come in February 2022. At which point everyone must have interconnected smoke alarms, a heat detector in the kitchen, and carbon monoxide detectors. (Not that anyone seems to know where to put one for my boiler)
Just received mine and it expires December 2030, so it’s around 4 months old. Not a bad lifespan
Definitely agree. There would be a market for a pair able heat sensor for kitchens.
I think building regs need a heat sensor in the kitchen that can link to the smoke alarms elsewhere. Particularly problematic in Scotland based on their relatively new regs, I believe. Not sure about other parts of the U.K. Maybe there are nuances on the regs I’m not aware of
For a normal low rise self contained residential properties I'm pretty sure smoke alarms are fine for building control. Usually heat alarms are required when there a need for a more engineered solution, such as in commercial properties or possibly in high rise residential.

2nd gen ones can, so any that you buy now (regardless of battery or wired) the 1st gen ones can't.
To install flush I recommend one of these: screwfix.com/p/appleby-circular-dry-liner-box-35mm/90517?_requestid=639849 If you need to ensure soundproofing / fire resistance in the ceiling mould intumescent putty inside. Core through ceiling between joists (locate with magnet or stud detector) ensuring no cables/pipes behind. Take a feed off local light fitting with 1.5mm2 Twin and Earth and use the connectors to connect the lead supplied to the T&E in the back box.
I thought they both could but I could be wrong
Which generation has the remote cancel alarm option? Mine went off with a false alarm in the middle of night when I was away and upset the nearby neighbours because it wouldn’t stop. I could see on the cameras that nothing was wrong but couldn’t stop it.
these are the ones I ordered.... very happy with them https://www.superlecdirect.com/p-patco-kidde-surface-pattress-box-for-kidde-4mco-4mdco-carbon-detectors/
