PowerG Carbon Monoxide Detectors
If you use an HVAC system to heat your home, or if you regularly use any fuel-burning appliances, then you will want to strongly consider investing in some carbon monoxide detectors. These devices use electrochemical technology to detect unusually high levels of carbon monoxide gas. CO gas is odorless and tasteless, but extremely harmful to humans. Many outbreaks of CO gas go undetected until casualties occur. In fact, hundreds of people in the United States alone lose their lives every year due to carbon monoxide gas. Properly installed and programmed carbon monoxide sensors can prevent this from happening,
Users with PowerG-compatible alarm systems, such as a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus or DSC PowerSeries NEO Security System will want to strongly consider using PowerG Carbon Monoxide Sensors. These are some of the most robust sensors on the market today. They are powerful and reliable, making them an excellent addition to nearly any compatible system. You can count on these sensors to reliably alert you and any other building occupants to an outbreak of CO gas. This can be very important for ensuring that you and your loved ones are kept safe from what could otherwise become a tragic event.
There are many great features that come built into the PowerG Carbon Monoxide Sensors. These features are shared across nearly every PowerG Sensor, and they make these sensors a worthwhile addition to any compatible system. PowerG Sensors boast an astounding advertised wireless signal range of up to 2 km when used in an open air environment. You can further increase this range to up to 4 km in open by adding a PowerG Repeater. Another benefit is that these sensors use 128-bit AES encryption in all their communication. This prevents wireless hacking or takeover attempts, making these sensors some of the most secure devices on the market.
Most outbreaks of carbon monoxide gas occur because of faulty home appliances. These include heating systems and other fuel-burning appliances. Most modern appliances are designed to prevent this from happening, but a faulty or broken appliance could lead to unsafe carbon monoxide exposure. The typical casualty from CO gas will occur during the winter months when more heating devices are used. Carbon monoxide sensors can be particularly important for end users who live in colder environments where heaters are frequently used.
There are a few things to consider when choosing a location for a carbon monoxide sensor. We recommend placing these devices outside of sleeping areas, as many CO-related deaths occur while people are asleep. You should avoid placing these devices near fuel-burning appliances or near any vents, as doing so may lead to false alarms. It is also not recommended to expose CO detectors to heavy sunlight or high levels of humidity. Exposure to heavy sunlight or moisture could cause the device to experience problems.
