smoke so alarming

I just installed dual smoke alarms just for the hell of it:

— one photoelectric
— one ionization

I bought a First Alert dual sensor model in February that did both of the above and it didn’t last eight months.

I decided to get one of each single mode made by Kidde.

The Kiddes were about $10 each. The dual function First Alert was nearly $30. I hope Kidde works out better.
