Carbon Monoxide (CO) is produced when fossil fuels do not burn completely or are exposed to heat. CO is an extremely poisonous gas. It is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas released by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels such as natural gas, bottled gas, petrol, diesel, oil, paraffin, wood, coal coke and bio-fuels.
The Doro CO Detector detects when concentration reaches certain thresholds and provides a local audible alarm (85 dB) and triggers a call to the monitoring centre via the social alarm unit. The battery is sealed and will last for up to 7 years. A low battery alert will be sent to the monitoring centre if the battery is low and an audible alert will be heard from the device. The device has a visible test button and weighs 130g. The Doro CO Detector operates on the European Social Alarm frequency
