First Alert CO400 Battery Powered Carbon Monixide Alarm, 2-Pack
Purchased this on 9/5/2012 and both CO units (2 in the package) work well so far, no false alarms. Will see how well they work in a year. Be gentle putting the battery compartment cover (it feels flimsy) back in place, as the plastic latch can break easily. I broke the plastic latch and used the tape to hold it in place.
Incorrect item is being shipped!
The CO alarm pictured is the version with the battery door on the front. It requires 2 AA batteries and once it is mounted, you don’t have to remove the unit to replace the batteries. I consider that very convenient! However, when you order this item Amazon is also shipping the unit with the battery door on the back. It requires a 9 volt battery and must be removed from the wall to replace the battery! Both packages have the model number CO400 and Amazon has both styles stocked together. So, if you order expecting the one with the battery door on front, as pictured, you may receive the one with the battery door on the back! I ordered five of them and only one was the one pictured, battery door on front with 2 AA batteries! I hope Amazon sorts out the problem! They did try to get me the correct units and I really appreciate their efforts! But I feel First Alert is really at fault here, because the units are different, yet the model number is the same on both packages!
I guess they’re working.. we’re not dead, yet.
These are nice safety alarms for the home. We put one upstairs and one downstairs. I installed them close to the thermostats, so I’d remember to check them periodically. As far as I know, they are working fine!

I did have a home inspector-type-guy tell me that it was best to put them lower on the wall, at the level of people’s heads when they are sleeping. (i.e. 2 or 3 ft off the ground instead of 5 ft like I did).
