The First Alert CO615 Dual-Power Carbon Monoxide Plug-In Alarm alerts you to dangerous carbon monoxide. This carbon monoxide detector operates on a dual-power system with battery backup for continuous monitoring, even in the event of a power outage. The backlit digital screen tells you at a glance what the carbon monoxide and power levels are. The CO monitor also features a convenient test and silence button and an end-of-life timer that lets you know when it is time to replace the unit.
Dual-Power Design for Continuous Monitoring
The carbon monoxide detector is designed to work with any standard outlet, and it features battery backup to allow continuous monitoring of carbon monoxide levels in the event of a power outage. Simply place two AA batteries in the battery compartment, and if the power goes out, the backup will activate, monitoring carbon monoxide levels even during storms. A low-battery indicator light and alarm will sound when the batteries need to be replaced or are removed.
Advanced Electrochemical Sensor
The First Alert Dual-Power Carbon Monoxide Plug-In Alarm uses an advanced electrochemical sensor to detect elevated CO levels. This sensor offers increased sensitivity to carbon monoxide even at low levels. In the event of a false alarm, the silence/test button can be used to turn off the CO detector.
Backlit Digital Display is Easy to Read
The large backlit display on the carbon monoxide detector clearly shows the level of carbon monoxide in the room, as well as the power level of the backup batteries. The display is readable even in the dark and casts a calm blue light, making it ideal for use in a bedroom. The 6-foot power cord makes it easy to mount the CO monitor on a wall or position it on a shelf or nightstand.
Where To Place Carbon Monoxide Alarms:

First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm CO615
This Alarm can be plugged directly into a wall outlet located close to the floor.
If you are going to use your Alarm as a direct plug into an outlet that is mounted horizontally (sideways), you may want to rotate the adapter 90 Degrees, as follows:
Installation tips for power cord models: The power cord option provides more flexibility in mounting locations and allows the Alarm to be easily installed at or above eye level. NOTE: If you mount the Alarm high on a wall, make sure it is at least 4 inches (102 mm) down from the ceiling. Any higher than this, it will be in "dead air" space and carbon monoxide may not reach the sensor. NOTE: Do not cover the Alarm with a curtain. To install for a wall-mount, you will need to pull out the removable adapter and power cord, as follows:

After placing the order, within days the requested alarm was at our home and within minutes up and operating. We didnt want to drill anymore holes in our walls and this particular monitor fit our needs perfectly. And, it operates even during a power failure too.
