Rated 5 out of 5 by 2
Rated 5 out of 5 The SMFM-i works very well with my residential designs.
This low-profile design recesses into a standard wall/ceiling device box (plastic or metal) and extends a mere 1/2-inch beyond the surface. The face-plate is square, slightly convex, and locks onto the base with a 45-degree rotation.
When attaching to a standard nail-on box, make sure to orient the box so the device screw pattern leaves the SD in the desired attitude; the face-plate will not rotate beyond the lock-in position. Pay special attention if the SD is intended to conform to, or complement, horizontal/vertical design features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrianL Great Looking Smoke Detector at an Awesome Price!
These are really nice detectors. The low-profile design makes them less obtrusive and I feel that the square shape makes them blend in better with the squareness of the rooms. I bought five of these to install in my single-level ranch style house and am very happy with them. I searched the web and found that 1000Bulbs.com has them for the lowest price of anywhere on the net.
As with most smoke detector customers, I can't comment as to how well they work during a real fire, but the testing of the units works and they all powered up fine. I've had them installed for a month now, and haven't had any problems in that short time. However, I have already had a few people complinent on how nice they looked... for a smoke detector, that is.
