Fire and Carbon Monoxide (CO) represent two of the major threats to the health and lives of homeowners and their families. Fire and smoke are often visible, providing occupants with a warning of their presence. CO on the other hand, issues no warning signs. It is colorless, odorless and can build up very slowly over time. Often, families become sick without even knowing the cause.
FireX® smoke/CO alarms monitor both smoke and CO emissions. Homeowners can satisfy state requirments, and professional contractors can easily satisfy most building requirements for fire and CO protection with a single unit, reducing installation costs and saving time. Smart Interconnect Wiring allows the FireX 12000 to be connected to additional smoke alarms and CO alarms on a single interconnect wire, eliminating the need for additional wiring and providing whole-house protection.
Toxic CO levels can occur suddenly, or accumulate slowly over time. That's why FireX alarms utilize technology that is equally effective under both conditions. Because even a very small, slow buildup of CO can cause health problems and eventual death, FireX alarms monitor CO levels continuously, and are designed to sound an alarm whenever potentially dangerous CO conditions occur.
FireX combination smoke/CO alarms utilize our exclusive Monox® Sensor with True-Test™ Sensor Diagnostics, a next-generation electrochemical technology with advanced design and functionality. Monox Sensors with True-Test™ Sensor Diagnostics perform an automatic gas test to ensure proper operation. Other CO alarms do an electronic test, checking only the electronics - not the sensor. Other sensors can fail – leaving the homeowner unprotected.
