The leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in North America, Carbon Monoxide (CO) is odorless, tasteless and invisible – it's a silent killer. The only safe way to know if carbon monoxide is present is to install carbon monoxide detectors (alarms) on every level of your home and in sleeping areas. Kidde has been making CO alarms with electrochemical sensing technology for years.
AC-Wire with battery backup Powered by home's electricity in order to provide continuous protection. An included 9V battery protects during short-term power outages.
Front-Loading Battery Speeds up replacement by eliminating the need to remove the unit from the ceiling or wall.
Unique Battery Door Design Will not close if battery is not installed properly.
Voice Warning Supplements warning from the traditional 85-decibel alarm by clearly stating the danger present, fire or carbon monoxide.
PhotoelectricSmokeSensor May detect visible fire particles associated with slow smoldering fires sooner than an ionization sensor.
ElectrochemicalCO Sensor Provides accurate and continual CO protection during the product's life, remains stable during temperature and humidity changes and resists reactions to household gases that may cause false readings or reduce sensitivity.
SmartTouchButton One button performs the following functions:
Activates the Hush® feature to temporarily silence nuisance alarms (will announce Hush mode activated, or Hush mode cancelled.)
Simultaneously tests the unit's electronics and verifies proper operation
Activates the peak level memory feature (will announce CO previously detected if unit has detected levels of 100 ppm or higher)
Resets the unit during a CO alarm (Unit will re-enter alarm within 6 minutes of reset if 70ppm or more of CO is present).
Silences a low battery chirp for up to 12 hours
Silences the end of life chirp for two days
Tamper Resistant Unit will lock to mounting bracket and battery door will lock to deter theft or tampering.
GreenLED Will flash every 30 seconds to indicate proper operation.
RedLED Flashes in conjunction with the alarm sounding.
End of Life Signal Ten years after initial power, the unit will chirp twice every 30 seconds to indicate the need to immediately replace the alarm.
Low Battery Signal Will chirp every minute and red LED will flash to indicate low battery condition.
Interconnectable Will interconnect with up to 24 other devices (18 of which can be initiating) including smoke, CO and heat alarms.
The Kidde CO120X can be used to activate auxiliary warning devices such as external bells and sirens, hallway or stairway lighting. This relay will only activate when it receives a CO signal from an interconnect Carbon Monoxide Alarm. When in the activated mode (as a result of a CO signal), this device will deactivate if it receives a smoke interconnect signal from a compatible device.
