If you want to build an integrated smoke and carbon monoxide alarm system, but without the cost and hassle of retrofit wiring in your home, the SCO500B Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector is an ideal choice. This alarm provides ultimate protection from two deadly threats, and it is packed with innovative features that give you precious time in the event of an emergency. And because it is able to wirelessly communicate with other wireless alarms, this device can help you create a whole-home safety network.
Faster Notification for Faster Escape
In the event of a fire or carbon monoxide (CO) emergency, every second counts. Unfortunately, traditional battery-operated alarms can often cost you precious time. For example, if a fire starts in your basement while you're asleep upstairs, you may not hear the smoke alarm, and it may take several minutes before the heat and smoke reaches an alarm that's close enough for you to hear its siren.
Thankfully, the wireless Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector is designed to provide you the earliest warning in an emergency. When this clever device detects smoke or carbon monoxide, all integrated wireless alarms in your home will work together, increasing your chances of getting out safely.
Interconnectivity Without the Wires
Until now, alarms that could signal each other were only available in homes with hardwired systems. All wireless alarms, however, communicate with each other wirelessly through integrated radio frequency. This means that when one sounds, they all sound, providing a whole-home safety network.
If you already have an existing system of hardwired alarms, but you are looking for an update, simply replace one of the alarms with the wireless Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector--your alarms will continue to be able to communicate with one another.
Talking Alarm Tells You Where the Danger Is
Not only do the wireless alarms talk to each other, but they also talk to you! Voice warning with location technology means that integrated wireless alarms will tell you where the danger is in your home with an actual programmable voice. For example, if there is fire in your basement, the alarm in your bedroom will speak 'Warning, evacuate. Smoke in basement." This feature will help you plan your escape method, so you can evacuate your family as safely as possible.
Accurate Technology Minimizes False Alarms
Utilizing photoelectric technology to sense smoke, the wireless Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector reduces the chance of false alarms caused by cooking or bathing.
Additionally, this alarm features an electrochemical CO sensor, which is the most accurate technology available for detecting CO.
Designed for Safety and Ease of Use
As user-friendly as it is effective, it has a dual-purpose button that silences the alarm and tests the system's function. And because the device emits a loud 85-dB siren, you'll be sure to hear it, even if you're asleep or in the shower. The audible low-battery signal can be muted for up to eight hours (so as not to disturb your sleep).
The wireless Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector is backed by a five-year limited warranty.
All BRK first alert Smoke alarm and Carbon Monoxide detectors meet the UL 217 and the UL 2034 standard for combination CO and smoke alarms, and are listed with the California State Fire Marshal. For a full list of states and cities requiring 10 Year alarms click here.
