IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
1. WHAT IS CARBON MONOXIDE?
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless and tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled. CO blinds to the hemoglobin in the
blood and inhibits its capacity to carry oxygen. CO kills hundreds of people each year and injures many more because it is difficult to
be detected with the human senses. In high concentrations, CO can kill in minutes.
2. SOURCES OF CARBON MONOXIDE
Inside your home, appliances used for heating and cooking are the most likely
sources of CO. Vehicles running in attached garages can also produce
dangerous levels of CO. CO can be produced when burning any fossil fuel,
such as gasoline, propane, natural gas, oil and wood. It can be produced by
any fuel-burning appliance that is malfunctioning, improperly installed, or not
ventilated correctly, such as:
z
Automobiles, furnaces, gas ranges/stoves, gas clothes dryers, water
heaters, portable fuel burning space heaters and generators,
fireplaces, wood-burning stoves and certain swimming pool heaters.
z
Blocked chimneys or flues, back drafts and changes in air pressure, corroded or disconnected vent pipes, loose or cracked
furnace exchangers.
z
Vehicles and other combustion engines running in an open or closed garage, attached or near a home.
z
Burning charcoal or fuel in grills and hibachis in an enclosed area.
3. CONDITIONS THAT CAN RESULT IN TRANSIENT CO SITUATION IN THE HOME:
The following conditions can result in transient CO situations:
z
Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel-burning appliances caused by outdoor ambient conditions, such as, wind
direction and/or velocity, including high gusts of wind, heavy air in the vent pipes (Cold/humid air with extended periods
between cycles).
z
Negative pressure resulting from the use of exhaust fans.
z
Simultaneous operation of several fuel-burning appliances competing for limited internal air.
z
Vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or water heaters.
z
Obstructions in, or unconventional, vent pipe designs which can amplify the above situations.
z
Extended operation of unvented fuel-burning devices (range, oven, fireplace, etc.).
z
Temperature inversions which can trap exhaust gases near the ground.
z
Vehicle idling in an open or closed garage, or near a home.
To be safe, know the possible sources of CO in your home. Keep fuel-burning appliances and their chimneys and vents in good
working condition. Learn the early symptoms of exposure, and if you suspect CO poisoning, move outside to fresh air and get
emergency help. Your first line of defense is an annual inspection and regular maintenance of your appliances. Contact a licensed
contractor or call your local utility company for assistance.
4. SYMPTOMS OF CO POISONING
35 ppm
The maximum allowable concentration for continuous exposure for healthy adults in any 8 hour period
200 ppm
Slight headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea after 2-3 hours
400 ppm
Frontal headaches within 1-2 hours, life threatening after 3 hours
800 ppm
Dizziness, nausea and convulsions within 45 minutes. Unconsciousness within 2 hours and death within 3 hours
1600 ppm
Headache, dizziness and nausea within 20 minutes. Death within 1 hour.
6400 ppm
Headache dizziness and nausea within 1-2 minutes
The following symptoms related to CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING and are to be discussed with ALL members of the
household:
Mild Exposure: Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often described as “flu-like” symptoms)
Medium Exposure: Severe throbbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast heart rate.
Extreme Exposure: Unconsciousness, convulsions, cardio respiratory failure, death.
Many cases of reported CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING indicate that while victims are aware they are not well. They become
so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by either the building or calling for assistance. Yong children and household pets are
typically the first affected.
5. GENERAL LIMITATIONS OF CO ALARMS
This CO Alarm is intended for residential use. It is not intended for use in industrial applications where Occupational Safety
and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for Carbon Monoxide Alarms must be met.
CO alarms may not waken all individuals. If children or others do not readily waken to the sound of the CO alarm, or if there are
infants or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is assigned to assist them in the event of an emergency.
CO Alarms cannot work without power. Battery operated units cannot work if the batteries are missing, disconnected or dead, if the
wrong type of batteries are used, or if the batteries are not installed correctly.
This CO Alarm will not sense carbon monoxide that does not reach the sensor. This CO Alarm will only sense CO at the sensor.
CO may be present in other areas. Doors or other obstructions may affect the rate at which CO reaches the CO Alarm. For this reason,
if bedroom doors are usually closed at night, we recommend you install a CO Alarm in each bedroom and in the hallway between
them.
CO Alarms may not sense CO on another level of the home. For example, a CO Alarm on the second level, near the bedrooms,
may not sense CO in the basement. For this reason, one CO Alarm may not give adequate warning. Complete coverage is
recommended. Place CO Alarms on each level of the home.
CO Alarms may not be heard. The alarm horn loudness meets or exceeds current EN standards of 85 dB at 1 meter. However, if the
CO Alarm is installed outside the bedroom, it may not wake up a sound sleeper or one who has recently used drugs or has been
drinking alcoholic beverages. This is especially true if the door is closed or only partly open. Even persons who are awake may not
hear the alarm horn if the sound is blocked by distance or closed doors. Noise from traffic, stereo, radio, television, air conditioner, or
other appliances may also prevent alert persons from hearing the alarm horn. This CO Alarm is not intended for people who are
hearing impaired.
CO Alarms are not a substitute for a smoke alarm. Although fire is a source of carbon monoxide, this CO Alarm does not sense
smoke or fire. This CO Alarm senses CO that may be escaping unnoticed from malfunctioning furnaces, appliances, or other sources.
Early warning of fire requires the installation of smoke alarms.
CO Alarms are not a substitute for life insurance. Though these CO Alarms warn against increasing CO levels, we does not
warrant or imply in any way that they will protect lives from CO poisoning. Homeowners and renters must still insure their lives.
CO Alarms have a limited life. Although the CO Alarm and all of its parts have passed many stringent tests and are designed to be as
reliable as possible, any of these parts could fail at any time. Therefore, you must test your CO Alarm weekly.
CO Alarms are not foolproof. Like all other electronic devices, CO Alarms have limitations. They can only detect CO that reaches
their sensors. They may not give early warning to rising CO levels if the CO is coming from a remote part of the home, away from the
CO Alarm.
INSTALLATION
WHERE TO INSTALL THIS ALARM
CO Alarm should be centrally located outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms. For added
protection, install additional CO Alarms in each separate bedroom, and on every level of your home.
If your bedroom hallway is longer than 40 feet (12 meters), install a CO Alarm at BOTH ends of the hallway.
In a Single-level Home:
z
Install at least one CO Alarm near or within each separate sleeping area.
z
For added protection, install an additional CO Alarm at least 20 feet (6 meters) away from the furnace or fuel burning heat
source.
In a Multi-level Home:
z
Install at least one CO Alarm near or within each separate sleeping area.
z
For added protection, install at least one CO Alarm on each level of the home.
z
For added protection, install an additional CO Alarm at least 20 feet (6 meters) away from the furnace or fuel burning heat
source.
In Mobile Homes:
z
Install CO Alarms on inside walls ONLY. Uninsulated outside walls and roofs of mobile homes often transfer heat and cold
from outdoors. The Alarm should be located at least 152 mm (6 inches) from all exterior walls and at least 305 mm (12
inches) from supply or return vents.
WHERE THIS ALARMS SHOULD NOT BE INSTALLED
Do NOT locate this CO Alarm:
z
In garages, kitchens, furnace rooms, or in any extremely dusty, dirty or greasy areas.
z
Within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of any cooking appliance.
z
In extremely humid areas. This alarm should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a bath or shower, sauna, humidifier,
vaporizer, dishwasher, laundry room, utility room or other source of high humidity.
z
In areas where temperature is colder than 40˚ F (4˚ C) or hotter than 100˚ F (38˚ C). These areas include unconditioned
crawl spaces, unfinished attics, uninsulated or poorly insulated ceilings, porches, and garages.
z
In turbulent air, like near ceiling fans, heat vents, air conditioners, fresh air returns, or open windows. Blowing air may
prevent CO from reaching the sensors.
z
Outside the Mobile Home.
z
In direct sunlight.
WARNING!
z
This CO Alarm is designed for use inside a single-family home or apartment. It is not meant to be used in common
lobbies, hallways, or basements of multi-family buildings unless working CO Alarms are also installed in each family
living unit. CO Alarms in common areas may not be heard from inside individual family living units.
z
This CO Alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete detection systems in places which house many people,
like hotels or dormitories, unless a CO Alarm is also placed in each unit.
z
DO NOT use this CO Alarm in warehouses, industrial or commercial buildings, special-purpose non-residential
buildings, or airplanes. This CO Alarm is specifically designed for residential use, and may not provide adequate
protection in non-residential applications.
HOW TO INSTALL THIS ALARM

WARNING!
The Test/Silence button is the only proper way to test the CO Alarm. NEVER use vehicle exhaust! Exhaust may cause
permanent damage and voids your warranty.
HUSH FEATURE
WARNING!
z
The Hush Feature is for your convenience only and will not correct a CO problem. Always check your home for a
potential problem after any alarm. Failure to do so can result in injury or death.
z
NEVER remove the batteries from your CO Alarm to silence the horn. Use the hush feature. Removing the batteries
removes your protection! See “If Your CO Alarm Sounds” for details on responding to an alarm.
The Hush Feature is intended to temporarily silence your CO Alarm’s alarm horn while you correct the problem—it will not correct a
CO problem. While the alarm is silenced it will continue to monitor the air for CO.
When CO reaches alarm levels the alarm will sound— repeating horn pattern: 4 beeps, a pause, 4 beeps, etc. Press and hold the
Test/Silence button until the horn is silent. The initial Silence cycle will last approximately 4 minutes.
NOTE: After initial 4-minute Silence cycle, the CO Alarm re-evaluates present CO levels and responds accordingly. If CO levels
remain potentially dangerous—or start rising higher—the horn will start sounding again.
For the wireless devices in the same ID, when the devices are in Local alarm or Remote alarm status (refer to TABLE2),
Triggering the Hush function will lead all the devices to be in Hush Status.。
LOCATE FEATURE
When the devices alarming for detecting carbon monoxide, users can find the initial point through the Locate Feature :
Find any one of the alarming device(Local Alarm or Remote Alarm), press the Test/Hush button and release it in 2 seconds. Then
the Locate Feature will be triggered. After triggering Locate Feature, all the alarming devices will be stop sound, except the initial
device which is detecting carbon monoxide signal keeps alarming until carbon monoxide signal goes off.
