Great product, easy to fit however you need to fit it to a junction box, this is mentioned in the instructions. There is also the option of getting the specific FireAngel junction box that will make it even easier to install.

Only for those who have a huge hole in ceiling

Mains connector sticks out from base plate. To accommodate for this, one requires to drill a hole in wall / ceiling of 5 cm diameter and 5 cm depth. One needs a separate terminal block connector as well. This is not at all mentioned on the package.

excellent product

There is zero clearance between alarm and base plate, so unless you are prepared to cut a large hole in the ceiling or wall to allow for mains cable connection box and the supplied power connector, I would not recommend. I took mine back for a refund following conversation with Fireangel tech support. They state you should buy model SW1-PF-T for ceiling connection. Nothing on the box regarding this. B&Q were good about it though.
