First Alert SCO5 Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm

The First Alert SCO5 Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm detects both smoke and carbon monoxide in a single detector. The CO and smoke alarm is battery operated, allowing you to easily install it. 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 and smoke detectors face alert you to what the danger is, and a single button allows you to test the combination detector monthly or silence a false alarm easily.
