Q. What is the difference between the 10Y29 and the Kidde PE910?
A. The 10Y29 is smaller in diameter, has a large test button to allow the use of a broom handle for testing the smoke alarm and has been tested not only to BS EN standards but also to additional, very demanding German standards, which have reduced the likelihood of nuisance alarms.

10 yr battery good, neat smoke alarm not very noticeable
Easy to fit and test, but hope it will never have to come in "useful".
Well built quality product
It's working but the proof of any alarm is do they work when you need them - I hope never to have to find out
Does the job, good delivery.
Easy to fit it to the wall.
Easy to fit. Works when testing the button.
Kept alarming for no reason
Alarm kept going off. I rang customer service and they said an insect might have got into it and to blow with cold hairdryer!!
It still doesn't work and alarm goes off randomly.
Easy to install and the service from Safelincs was great
Battery went flat within 2 months. Hopefully this is just a 1-off.
Good quaity and prompt service
not that we've had a fire, but appears to work well, neat, tidy, compact....does what it says on the tin
Took minutes to install and will not need to be touched for 10 years
Appears to be what I expected. Only a real situation will prove it, so I hope it doesn't need to be proven.
Slightly smaller than the one it was replacing but I decided to leave the original and position it in a better place. The original was too near to the kitchen door and was set off by the oven.
excellent product and easy to fit
The first product was faulty,but was exchanged quickly & efficiently
Solid construction, lifetime battery, testing button, operation led, etc. It inspires confidence.

Very impressed. A good fire alarm. Reliable so far.
10 year battery life is excellent for us seniors which saves us having to get on step ladder every year to change battery. Ta
Great for us older people not to have to climb up to change the battery every year and gives us peace of mind.

Kidde are excellent have 5 of their alarms
Kidde is well known to me as far back as the 1960's the units are very compact and with 10 year battery life (non removable) they are perfect. Smoke alarms can be purchased for much less but what price safety and reliability.
Excellent service, excellent product.

Neat and easy to fit product.
Very good, and easy to install.
An excellent product, simple operation and the additional service of regular reminder to test the alarm is a bonus.
Just the job -piece of mind.
Easy to install and looks good.
That's it till 2023 then !
I purchased these smoke alarms to replace two 16 year old mains alarms fitted when the house was built and were now malfunctioning. I needed long life alarms as I am disabled and stepladders are now difficult for me. These alarms were fitted as per instructions and work fine. I would unreservedly recommend these alarms.
Comprehensive instructions made it simple to install
You have to have faith in the product for you may only use it once and that is the time your life is at risk
!0 years is a long time to have faith in an object that if activated will save your life. One hopes one will never have to test how excellent this alarm is ( nothing happens when I press the rating button ( excellant )
easy to assemble
very good price. easy to assemble. fix to the ceiling very well with no more nail. recommend to others.
can be tricky to line up and still not sure its correctly installed but it is at least up there
first rate will deal again thank you
Easy to fit not too senetive
Smart design and super easy to install
I'm a female pensioner with limited DIY skills but managed to screw these to my ceilings with no problems at all. They look very unobtrusive and work a treat
good to know that battery lasts.
this is a great product and I think there needs to be a big campaign on how smoke alarms can be a lifesaver as there are still people I know who don't have one.....unbelievable these days!!
Easy to put up, very unobtrusive, have forgotten they are even there.
Small, neat, with useful one button (end-of-a-broom sized) test button. Love idea of the built in 10 battery life.
easy to fit and test - hope i never need it
nice to know i am protected for 10 years - makes sleeping easier
nice to know I am protected for 10 years - makes sleeping easier,
Looks good - give us piece of mind
Excellent value for peace of mind!
Quite small and unobtrusive. Easy and quick to put up, and no more need to get the step ladder out! Big hush/test button with a recess to 'grab' the end of a broom, and no batteries to change.
Very easy to install - hope I never have to find out how good it really is...
A silent sentry giving one confidence.
my only caveat with this alarm is that it doesn't seem very loud,
Ordered on line. Speedy efficient delivery. It works well. The toaster set it off!
Exactly as described and good value for money.
A well-made lightweight product, but I can't give it four stars until ten years have passed!
easy to fit no batteries to fit for ten years ideal.
Excellent product very satisfied
discreet, smart, easy to fit.
Look good & perfect for the job very impressed.
Easy to fit, reassuring quality
It is so small i don't even notice it and it is reassuring to know that I will not have to replace the battery .
good quality product and long term value
compact & easy to install, & use
Simple to fit, easy to test, very loud
Does all that is needed and more!
All-white design means that it blends in quite well, but it is higher than expected and therefore fairly obtrusive. The black writing on one side is irritating as you cannot remove it.
