We had an extension done recently, just getting the electrics signed off and the chap noticed that the builder hadn't put the proper smoke alarm in the extension, which i believe is required due to it being having a kitchen in it. The alarm was a battery powered unit, not mains attached. Rather than rip channels for wiring back to the units currently in the rest of the house, we discussed potentially using RF units. The units in the rest of the house have been in for 20yrs, the one on the landing is a bit dubious as if you put the battery in it then it goes off all the time.

Any recommendations for decent RF units to replace the lot, i'd be after 3 of them.

Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years, so your existing ones are well past their "use by" date.
