The First Alert Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm, SCO5CN, 2AA detects both smoke and carbon monoxide in a single detector. The CO smoke alarm is battery operated, allowing you to easily install it anywhere without requiring an electrician. The photoelectric sensor detects smoke produced by smoldering fires and minimizes false alarms from cooking smoke or shower steam. The electrochemical CO sensor helps to detect carbon monoxide leaks from multiple sources such as, faulty fuel-burning appliances. Lights on the CO smoke detectors face alert you to what the danger is, and a single button allows you to test the unit monthly or silence a false alarm easily.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don’t know they are suffering from CO poisoning until it’s too late. Since symptoms of CO poisoning are like the flu, you might not even know you’re in danger at first. That’s why a carbon monoxide alarm is an excellent way to protect your family. It can detect the CO you can’t see, smell or taste in the air.
The battery-operated dual CO smoke alarm installs in minutes, without requiring an electrician. The unit requires two AA batteries, and features a chirp and indicator light to let you know when they need replacing. The alarm mounts easily to a ceiling or wall, and comes with pins to secure alarm to the base to prevent tampering.
The alarm feature in the First Alert Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm, SCO5CN, 2AA sounds a horn tone that has a lower and varying frequency. This makes the alarm easier to hear for the elderly and those with mild hearing loss. The loud, 85-decibel alarm is designed to help wake even the soundest of sleepers. A one-touch button silences false alarms and allows you to test the unit monthly.
