Yes – this carbon monoxide alarm is suitable for all domestic settings, including caravan holiday homes, caravans, motor caravans and boats.
The common sources of Carbon Monoxide (CO) are cookers, fires, boilers, oil and gas boilers, portable generators, oil or solid fuel cookers, gas or paraffin heaters, barbecues (BBQs), clogged chimneys, wood or gas fireplaces, cigarette smoke or any fossil fuel-burning appliances.
Regular servicing of these items will help reduce the risk of CO in your home but it will not completely remove the risk. The only way to detect CO in your home is to install a Carbon Monoxide detector with an audible alarm.
No – for Carbon Monoxide detection you need to also install a CO detector which you will find here, or a combination smoke and CO alarm – FireAngel SCB10.
When alarms are interlinked they are able to communicate and will alert at the same time if one of the alarms detects danger. In the case of wireless interlink, this communication is in the form of protected radio frequency, which means there’s no need to run cables between the alarms. The FireAngel Pro Connected alarms allow the network to be extended to include devices across your entire home. For example, a network of 7 x smoke alarms, 3 x heat alarms, 3 x carbon monoxide alarms and a Gateway will be completely secure and protect your whole home, and are backwards compatible with the FireAngel Wi-Safe2 range.
You can also add a Gateway into the network which will allow you to receive updates on the network when you’re away from the home. The Gateway will communicate with the FireAngel Connected App using your home’s internet connection, but if this fails or cuts out the alarms will still protect your home, but you won’t receive a push notification.
This indicates that the unit has a low battery or has developed a fault. There are 3 possibilities:
• If the amber LED is ﬂashing at the same time as the chirp, this indicates a low battery condition and the alarm should be replaced as soon as possible and certainly within 30 days.
• If the amber LED is ﬂashing at a different time to the chirp, this indicates a fault and the alarm should be replaced as soon as possible.
• If the amber LED is double ﬂashing and the alarm is making a ‘chirping’ sound, this indicates that the wireless module has a low battery condition, or is faulty. The alarm should be replaced as soon as possible.
A carbon monoxide leak has been detected. Keep calm and open the doors and windows to ventilate the property.
