Product Overview

  • Detects smoke and carbon monoxide
  • Detects smoke and carbon monoxide
  • EZ access battery drawer
The First Alert SC05CN Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector helps protect you and your family from two deadly threats: fire and carbon monoxide. Fire is a deadly threat to every household; it can strike anywhere, any time. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don't know they are suffering from CO poisoning until its too late. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are like the flu, and you might not even know you're in danger at first. This dual smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is an excellent way to protect your family. The SCO5CN uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor, the most accurate technology available. The alarm uses photoelectric smoke sensing technology which reduces nuisance alarms, making it ideal for cooking areas. Photoelectric smoke alarms are great for sensing slow smoldering fires quickly. The test/silence button both silences a non-threatening alarm or low battery warning and allows you to test the unit's functionality. The SCO5CN alarm uses different 85-decibel horns and lights depending on whether it's alerting you to smoke or carbon monoxide. A low battery signal alerts you to replace the battery and end-of-life alarm of three chirps alerts you to replace the unit. Two AA batteries are included. 7-year limited warranty. UL listed.

How do I open it to change the batteries?
Asked by: GRammie
It is very simple. Near the top of detector is a battery compartment. This is right above the First Alert label on mine. Just use your finger and slide it open. Good luck!

Customer Reviews

Battery Operated Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 226.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Super Buy This product so easy to install and works very easily. The problem with this unit is that is has a self testing that activates at any given time, even in the middle of the night. So many Customers are complaining by saying its not a good unit. On the contrary is an excellent unit I have 6 throughout my house for the last 5 years up to date. What I love about the unit is that you can program it to speak the area like, Hallway, Living room, Bedroom where the problem is. So when the unit does a self test in the middle of the night its okay it doesn't not mean that's its defective. In order to disarm the self testing you pull out the Batteries hold the test button and push the Batteries back into place, this process will eliminate the self testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great price I purchased this product because it had the dual function for both CO2 and smoke. I wanted the photoelectron smoke detector to stop false alarms in the kitchen and so far it has done the trick. The unit I put upstairs outside the bathroom has actually chirped from the steam after a hot shower. I run the exhaust fan and I can't see the steam however the smoke detector does. Impressive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from life span didn´t live up to expectation We bought 2 of these when we first bought our house. One became defective after 2 1/2 years and the second one just gave us the "malfunction - replace alarm" chirps after 3years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this product I had finally had it with trying to put 9 volt batteries in a smoke alarm over my head while standing on a ladder. I selected First Alert because it uses easy to insert AAs and because my 20 year old alarms had not included a carbon monoxide detector. They were easy to install, even for this senior female. It's hard to tell how well they work. I hope I never have to find out, but I feel much safer with new alarms installed and I'm happy with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, two-feature installation We purchased this combination CO/smoke detector for a ceiling that we didn't want to install separate detectors on. It was easy to install, and hopefully will sound accordingly if CO or smoke are present. Would be great if this were available in HD stores - had to order it to get the proper combination (CO and photoelectric smoke detection) needed for outside a bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Combo Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm The first alert combo unit is a great value for the price and works as described. I would recommend this unit to anyone who was wishing to have such a device. I bought several for upstairs and downstairs of my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be a well built product. Seems to be a well built product. Easy to install. Tone alert when the detector reaches it's useful life to remind you to replace them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I just started using this product and it works great. I bought 3 to replace older ones in my home. I haven't had any alarms yet and don't hope to have any, but we put the battery in and replaced my old smoke detectors with these new ones and I am very pleased with how easy they work and go up on ceiling.
