Typical price


The Kidde i9080 smoke alarm has an escape light to guide you through a smoky room, as well as a hush feature that silences the alarm for 10 minutes if you accidentally set it off. It sounds good on paper, but how quickly and loudly does this smoke alarm respond in the event of a real fire? We put it to the test on four different types of fire to find out how quickly it triggers, how loudly it sounds and how bright the escape light actually is. Read on for our full review of this Kidde smoke alarm.
