Expert review

The First Alert SA200 is a basic and affordable smoke alarm, so don’t expect to find features such as a hush button or an emergency escape light on this model. To find out how quickly this First Alert alarm detects smoke, we tested it with four different types of fire. Read on to find out how well it did in our smoke alarm tests and whether the cheap price represents good value or a false economy.
