State Utilities recommends professionally installed smoke and carbon monoxide alarms installed throughout the home to protect against fire and carbon monoxide poisioning. Carbon monoxide is very difficult for people to detect because the gas is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and initially non-irritating. Having a 24/7 working combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm will increase your chances of survival if your home were to catch on fire or carbon monoxide levels were to become elevated. We install these detectors and will show you how to operate them.
Choose among the Nest Protect or the Kidde devices:
Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm and its companion app on your smartphone (Apple or Android Smartpone or tabled) makes safety easy—and decidedly less annoying. Nest Protect speaks with a human voice, telling you where and what the danger is, and gives you a friendly Heads-Up before turning on a loud alarm. There's also a Voice Alarm to help wake up kids, since it's not uncommon for them to sleep through beeping alarms. And all it takes to quiet the alarm is a wave of your hands—no more swinging towels or brooms. Nest Protect even sends a message wirelessly to your iOS device when its batteries run low.
The Kidde 900-0114A uses breakthrough technology to offer a fast response to real fires, including smoldering and fast-flaming, as well as protect you from carbon monoxide and dramatically reduce the chance of nuisance alarms. The Intelligent sensor technology combines the detection capabilities of an ionization smoke sensor – which is more likely to detect smaller, less visible fire particles, like those produced by flaming fires – with that of an electrochemical sensor, which is used to detect CO. Since carbon monoxide is present in all fires, having both detection chambers work together in one alarm is a breakthrough in the fire safety industry. When either sensor notices a potential hazard, it will communicate with the other. Depending on what is detected, the alarm will adjust its smoke sensitivity in order to better discriminate between a real hazard and a false one. This constant communication enhances the alarm's overall performance in all fires, and significantly reduces the potential for a nuisance alarm.
