3 x 5. 3 x 1. 5 inches. It's square, with rounded corners. The center of the device has a circular LED that changes color depending on what's happening; yellow means there's smoke or carbon monoxide, but it hasn't yet reached critical levels; red means you need to get the heck out of there.

According to Consumer Reports, professional monitoring costs range from $100 to $300 annually, plus the cost of equipment. In comparison, DIY system starter kits start at about $200.
