Very pleased with the size and that it is able to be put in the wall outlet horizontally or vertically.. So far have not had it go off except for my monthly check.

Having a gas furnace and gas fireplace necessitates having a CO detector you can rely on. We have no way of knowing if our old CO detector is still functioning so it's great to have this one just in case. This one has a test function and battery back-up for ten years. There is a place on the side to note the date you will need to replace - good idea! We placed this in the hallway leading to all of our bedrooms and the dusk to dawn automatic night light is great too. There is a test button as well and this unit is very loud.

  • Better to be Safe From Carbon Monoxide Then Sorry

This is a reliable, good quality carbon monoxide (CO) alarm that is perfect to protect yourself and your family from the serious dangers associated with carbon monoxide in a home. The manufacturer provides very clear and detailed instructions to explain the proper installation, and operation of this carbon monoxide alarm and the hazards and symptoms associated with exposure to carbon monoxide. This carbon monoxide alarm is very simple to install, maintain and use and has a voice alarm, a very loud 85+ dB audible alarm beep and a visible alarm indicator that activate anytime a sensor detects dangerous carbon monoxide levels. This carbon monoxide alarm is designed to operate continuously for 10 years and has a non-replaceable internal battery to monitor carbon monoxide levels during power outages. This carbon monoxide alarm also provides low battery and end of life indications when the alarm needs to be replaced. Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless and tasteless gas that can be emitted from any device or appliance that burns a combustible fuel including heaters, furnaces, stoves, gas dryers, generators, grills, etc.. Devices or appliances that burn a combustible fuel can emit carbon dioxide indoors when they are not properly ventilated outdoors or from their outdoor exhaust vent not being open or becoming clogged or obstructed from debris or from snow accumulating too much around them, etc.. I installed this carbon monoxide alarm in a bedroom which also serves as a work at home office to detect any carbon monoxide emitted by a LP hot water heater and a kerosene fueled furnace in the event there is ever a fault with either of these appliances.

Pros Clear Instructions, Compact, Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Lots of Features, Loud, Nice Design, reliable detection of carbon monoxide

We use propane gas to operate our furnace, water heater and kitchen stove top so it is important to have a carbon monoxide alarm. This alarm has a sealed 10 year lithium battery backup requiring replacement of the entire unit when that time period ends. It provides continuous protection/monitoring against CO poisoning. It features Auto Dim Digital Display, an AC plug-in and peak level/test button. At the end of life of the unit, a chirp will sound as an alert to replace the unit.There is a button on the back that you push to silence the alarm for 3 days. There is a low battery alert chirp as well, you simply push the test/peak level button to silence it for 10 hrs, so here will be no annoying continual chirping like smoke alarm batteries. The unit is quick and easy to install. Only have to remove the red plastic switch cover on the back and plug in. Made in China.

  • Liking the long life backup battery
  • December 12, 2016
  • Recommended Product

This is a decent CO detector. For anyone that has used any 9V battery backed detector (be it smoke or CO), the long life lithium backup is wonderful. After 10 years, you have reached the operational timeframe of this meter and should replace it. So, as long as you do not have excessive unplugged or power off time, you will never have to replace a backup battery. That is great. The overall footprint of the detector is the same as Kidde's 9V backed up detectors. For those with horizontal plugs, the unit also allows rotation of the plugs to keep the monitor in the proper orientation. This detector has a display on the front, showing CO in parts per million. The accuracy is plus or minus 30%. As with most meters of this level, you are not going to get great accuracy and very little at close to zero. However, once you get around discomfort and danger levels, it does its job. Just understand that despite the 0 on the front, UL2034 does not require testing for CO lower than 70 ppm. Using canned CO, I found the response to be acceptable. It takes a while to get a positive result, as indicated in documentation: 60-240 minutes for 70 ppm, 10-50 minutes for 150 ppm, and 4-15 minutes for 400 ppm. It is not a good solution for those sensitive to low level CO issues, but for most people who are looking at dangerous large failures of combustion based systems, this is a good choice. Detectors that can accurately read lower levels are generally about 5 times the price. So this sits at a value point that most people can justify spending.

Well this makes it easy. Plug it in and the 10 year clock starts. Nothing more to do. This replaces an old detector that I had that was about 12 years old. I was wondering if it still worked at that age anyway so I'm happy to change it out. The night light is a nice addition. We have it in the hallway between all of our bedrooms and now at night this actually makes the hallway a bit safer without the need to kick on the main light. You can also adjust the night light brightness to 10 different levels. Hopefully I never truly need this but it is great peace of mind to know the family is protected just in case of a Carbon Monoxide situation. I obviously didn't test the alarms ability to detect Carbon Monoxide but I trust it's ready for action if needed. In addition, the alarm sound level is good. No issues there. I recommend. It's a trusted brand and that means a lot to me.

Not for bedroom use. The night light is bright and always on. Excellent otherwise.

It was easy to install and the instruction booklet was easy to read and understand. Of course, this is one of those products where you hope you will never know that you needed it. I had the same brand previously but without the digital read out screen. I like this extra feature and I like that the batteries do not need to be replaced - good for the life of the product.

It kept saying “low battery”. The directions stated that meant it should be replaced and I’d just bought it.
