How It Works - Carbon Monoxide Detector
This sensor is an important component of life safety. Our detectors differ from typical CO Detectors because it is monitored 24/7 and will notify you even if you aren't home. The sensor remains ready to diligently protect you and your loved ones from lethal levels of Carbon Monoxide, regardless of the armed status of the security system.
Carbon Monoxide FAQ
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can be fatal to humans and pets. It cannot be discerned by your senses, so we recommend using this sensor to protect against this potential hazard. Carbon monoxide is produced when fuels burn in:
- Gas ranges
- Gas-powered hot water heaters
We recommend placing at least one sensor on each level of your home. The CO detector is particularly helpful for those with household pets who may be alone during the day.
