The BRKEOL Easichange® is the replacement for the DETA 1151 and 1153 smoke alarms. The kit contains a BRK 660MRL alarm head, sealed lithium battery, quick replacement guide, FREE Easichange® tool and full product manual. Also included is a reminder sticker to put on your fuse box so you know when to replace the alarm.
As an upgrade to the DETA 1151 and 1153 that it replaces, this BRKEOL Easichange® mains powered smoke alarm is fitted with a sealed lithium backup battery that will not need changing for the full lifespan of the alarm. Utilising an optical smoke sensor means these alarms are less likely to suffer false alarms than older ionisation smoke sensors, while also improving detection of slow smouldering fires. As it fits on the same base plate there is no need to rewire the connection and no need to call an electrician, making it a quick and easy process to replace and old DETA alarm.

The simple installation process of the Easichange® replacement kits negates the need for an electrician, though you must ensure that mains power to all interlinked alarms is cut before beginning work. The interlink wire can carry a live electric current between alarms if they are powered from different circuits.
Below is a table of all alarms which can be interchanged using the same base plate and interlink system. Care should be taken to ensure the correct model is purchased to replace existing alarms. Optical smoke alarms can be used in place of ionisation smoke alarms, but heat alarms and smoke alarms serve different purposes and cannot be swapped.
