BASIC SAFETY INFORMA
TION
Dangers, Warnings, and Cautions alert you to important operating
instr
uctions or to potentially hazardous situations. Pay special
attention to these items.
The CO Alarm is not designed to detect fire or any other gas. It will
only indicate the pr
esence of carbon monoxide gas at the sensor.
Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.
Do not stand too close to the unit when the alarm is sounding. It is
loud to wake you in an emer
gency. Exposure to the horn at close
range may har
m your hearing.
Do not paint over the unit. Paint may clog the openings to the sensing
chambers and prevent the unit from operating properly.
This unit must be powered by a 24-hour circuit. Be sure the circuit
cannot be turned off by a switch, dimmer, or ground fault circuit
inter
rupter. Failure to connect this unit to a 24-hour circuit may
prevent it from providing constant protection.
This Alarm must have AC or battery power to operate. If AC power
fails and the battery is dead or missing, the alarm cannot operate.
Test the Alarm once a week. If the Alarm ever fails to test correctly,
have it r
eplaced immediately! If the Alarm is not working properly, it
cannot alert you to a problem.
This Carbon Monoxide Alarm is intended for residential use and is
not suitable for use in hazar
dous locations as defined in the National
Electrical Code.
This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of family
living units. It is not designed to measure CO levels in compliance with
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) commercial or
industrial standar
ds. Individuals with medical conditions that may
make them more sensitive to carbon monoxide may consider using
warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon
monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm. For additional infor
mation on
carbon monoxide and your medical condition contact your physician.

In or near bedrooms and living areas or wherever you suspect a CO
exposure is likely.
On each level of a multi-level home.
