hiya Juarez jour from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about carbon monoxide detector functionality what a carbon monoxide detector is is a detector that detects carbon monoxide these are very important to have inside of your home as carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless so you can't smell it and you can't see it it kills people in their sleep for the most part when it does affect in a home and it's a very dangerous thing to happen if your system is monitored by a security company and you do have Central Station monitoring there's a very good chance that if your carbon monoxide detector goes off that they're going to immediately send dispatch to your house from the fire department as soon as they get that signal in in fact there is a law that says they were required to dispatch on those signals if it comes in so know that when you're installing a carbon monoxide detector keep your system on test when you're putting it up because if that thing goes off and they get that alarm signal you're going to have to deal with the fire department now carbon monoxide detectors they come in three different varieties but they all will do the same thing they detect carbon monoxide the three different types of sensors are biomimetic metal oxide semi conductors an electrochemical they all function in a slightly different way the electrochemical sensor they actually have sensors that have chemical painted on top of them and when that detects carbon monoxide it triggers the sensor biomimetic sensors have a gel inside of them that'll change color when that changes color the sensor will trigger telling the the alarm system that there is carbon monoxide an area and metal oxide semiconductor sensors they have a silicon chip that reacts to carbon monoxide that will trigger the sensor when it goes off so as you can see all three sensors they have a different way of activation but they'll all tell you if there's carbon monoxide present in the area when you're going to install your carbon monoxide detectors usually at the bare minimum you want to put one on each floor if you want to go above and beyond putting them by all the sleeping areas is a good idea and in the areas nearby the garage you don't want to put them in an area where there's fuel burning appliances or in the garage itself as that'll probably give you a false alarm another place you wouldn't want to install it is in a furnace room or nowhere else where there's an appliance that's burning fuel because that gas in the room could trigger the carbon monoxide detector and that may just be normal operational gasps that's not leaking into the house really you want them in your living areas nearby places that have that so nearby the garage or nearby a utility room in the hallway you definitely want it in all of your sleeping areas if you can but at very least you want one carbon monoxide detector on each floor other aspects of a carbon monoxide detector is that there's two different types there's hardwired and there's wireless if you are using a hardwired carbon monoxide detector it is not recommended to connect it to a hard wired to wireless translator so you're going to want to home run these all the way back to your panel or to an expansion module that's also wired to your panel depending on what kind of system you have wireless carbon monoxide detectors they work as such they're wireless devices you just have to make sure that they're compatible with your system so that you can program them into the system to make them work one more aspect on the wired carbon monoxide detectors is that when you do set them up you want to program them as normally open and then you want to wire the resistor at the carbon monoxide detector in parallel this will supervise the whole line and the reason you do normally open is that for the most part fire devices you want to setup as normally open devices so the loop is open when it triggers it closes it tells the system that there's carbon monoxide in the area and will trigger an alarm you have any questions though about carbon monoxide detectors how they work or how to install them feel free to head to our website wwlp.com or give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven to it we did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe and if you want to be notified we plus future videos hit the notification button below and we'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
