New PI-2000 Combination Dual Sensor (Interconnectable) Smoke Alarm

This smoke alarm combine both a photoelectric and ionization sensor into a single alarm. Photoelectric sensors are more responsive to slow, smoldering fires and ionization sensors are more responsive to fast flaming fires. The combination of these two sensing technologies provide the best overall fire protection.

The PI 9000 and the PI 2000 include: hush function, flashing indicator lights to signal the alarm is functioning properly, a push to test function, low battery warning and a loud 85 decibel alarm.

The PI 2000 adds smart interconnectablity, originating alarm memory and a battery pull tab.

Use in all Bedrooms, Living Areas and Family Rooms - Superior protection, with advanced sensors to provide the earliest warning to both fast flaming and slow smoldering fires.

    What You Need to Know about Carbon Monoxide Detectors

    They Aren't Like Smoke Detectors!

    According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. Carbon monoxide detectors are available, but you need to understand how they work and what their limitations are in order to decide whether or not you need a detector and, if you purchase a detector, how to use it to get the best protection.

    What is Carbon Monoxide?

    Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas. Each carbon monoxide molecule is composed of a single carbon atom bonded to a single oxygen atom. Carbon monoxide results from the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, such as wood, kerosene, gasoline, charcoal, propane, natural gas, and oil.

    Where is Carbon Monoxide Found?

    Carbon monoxide is present in low levels in the air. In the home, it is formed from incomplete combustion from any flame-fueled (i.e., not electric) device, including ranges, ovens, clothes dryers, furnaces, fireplaces, grills, space heaters, vehicles, and water heaters. Furnaces and water heaters may be sources of carbon monoxide, but if they are vented properly the carbon monoxide will escape to the outside. Open flames, such as from ovens and ranges, are the most common source of carbon monoxide. Vehicles are the most common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    How Do Carbon Monoxide Detectors Work?

    Carbon monoxide detectors trigger an alarm based on an accumulation of carbon monoxide over time. Carbon monoxide can harm you if you are exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide in a short period of time, or to lower levels of carbon monoxide over a long period of time. Carbon monoxide detectors require a continuous power supply, so if the power cuts off then the alarm becomes ineffective. Models are available that offer back-up battery power.

    Why is Carbon Monoxide Dangerous?

    When carbon monoxide is inhaled, it passes from the lungs into the hemoglobin molecules of red blood cells. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin at the same site as and preferentially to oxygen, forming carboxyhemoglobin. Carboxyhemoglobin interferes with the oxygen transport and gas exchange abilities of red blood cells. The result is that the body becomes oxygen-starved, which can result in tissue damage and death. Low levels of carbon monoxide poisoning cause symptoms similar to those of the flu or a cold, including shortness of breath on mild exertion, mild headaches, and nausea. Higher levels of poisoning lead to dizziness, mental confusion, severe headaches, nausea, and fainting on mild exertion. Ultimately, carbon monoxide poisoning can result in unconsciousness, permanent brain damage, and death. Carbon monoxide detectors are set to sound an alarm before the exposure to carbon monoxide would present a hazard to a healthy adult. Babies, children, pregnant women, people with circulatory or respiratory ailments, and the elderly are more sensitive to carbon monoxide than healthy adults.

    Where Should I Place a Carbon Monoxide Detector?

    Because carbon monoxide is slightly lighter than air and also because it may be found with warm, rising air, detectors should be placed on a wall about 5 feet above the floor. The detector may be placed on the ceiling. Do not place the detector right next to or over a fireplace or flame-producing appliance. Keep the detector out of the way of pets and children. Each floor needs a separate detector. If you getting a single carbon monoxide detector, place it near the sleeping area and make certain the alarm is loud enough to wake you up.

    What Do I Do if the Alarm Sounds?

    Don't ignore the alarm! It is intended to go off before you are experiencing symptoms. Silence the alarm, get all members of the household to fresh air, and ask whether anyone is experiencing any of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. If anyone is experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, call 911. If no one has symptoms, ventilate the building, identify and remedy the source of the carbon monoxide before returning inside, and have appliances or chimneys checked by a professional as soon as possible.

    Additional Carbon Monoxide Concerns and Information

    Don't automatically assume that you need or don't need a carbon monoxide detector. Also, don't assume that you are safe from carbon monoxide poisoning just because you have a detector installed. Carbon monoxide detectors are intended to protect healthy adults, so take the ages and health of family members into account when assessing the effectiveness of a detector. Also, be aware that the average life span of many carbon monoxide detectors is about 2 years. The 'test' feature on many detectors checks the functioning of the alarm and not the status of the detector. There are detectors that last longer, indicate when they need to be replaced, and have power supply backups -- you need to check to see whether a particular model has the features you require. When deciding whether or not to purchase a carbon monoxide detector, you need to consider not only the number and type of carbon monoxide sources, but also the construction of the building. Newer building may have more airtight construction and may be better insulated, which make it easier for carbon monoxide to accumulate.

    CARBON MONOXIDE

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that is poisonous and potentially lethal. CO is a by-product of incomplete combustion. It is produced when flammable fuels such as natural gas, propane gas, heating oil, kerosene, coal, charcoal, gasoline or wood burn with insufficient oxygen

    Where to Locate a COAlarm

    Carbon monoxide is almost identical in weight to normal airand thus will mix freely with air. For this reason alarms may beinstalled at any level in a room, from close to the floor level,to the ceiling.

    If the CO alarm is to be ceiling mounted, it should beinstalled away from any existing smoke alarms in order to allowfor differentiation between a CO alarm and a smoke alarm in anemergency alarm situation.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that every home be equipped with at least one carbon monoxide alarm near the sleeping area of the home. (Because victims of CO poisoning will slip deeper into unconsciousness as their CO condition worsens, a loud alarm is necessary to wake them). For maximum protection, place one carbon monoxide alarm on every level of your home.

     

    In homes heated by a boiler system (radiators rather thanvents), consumers should consider placing a CO alarm near thefurnace room, but about 5 feet away from the furnace itself.Locating a CO alarm directly beside a furnace would be theequivalent of locating a smoke alarm directly above an ovenrange. Under normal conditions, a furnace will emit very lowlevels of CO which will quickly dissipate and thus are notdangerous. However a malfunctioning furnace may generate a veryhigh level of CO which a nearby CO alarm will alert you to.
