A carbon monoxide (CO) detector provides early warning of CO in the air. Detectors can send alarm, trouble, end-of-life, tamper and low battery condition messages to the alarm panel. There are no holes to drill or wires to run making this detector ideal for difficult to wire locations, applications where room aesthetics are critical or where hazardous materials exist.
CO is an odorless, colorless, tasteless and highly toxic gas that is produced when fuels such as wood, gasoline, charcoal and oil are burned with insufficient air. The majority of residential and commercial fatalities caused from these fuels come from heating systems, engine powered tools and charcoal grills.
