First Alert's plug-in carbon monoxide alarm with battery backup offers several unique installation options. This alarm easily plugs into any standard outlet with no additional mounting necessary or it can also be mounted on any wall using the convenient power line cord(approx. 6 feet long). Battery backup ensures alarm works even during power outages. Digital display illuminates hazard level when in alarm or when any button is pressed. Remote mute silences nuisance alarms by pressing any button on a standard household remote control (remote not included). Single button also tests alarm functions. Carbon monoxide detector utilizes electrochemical sensor for increased accuracy. 7-year limited warranty. Carbon monoxide alarm meets UL standards.
This carbon monoxide alarm is for you if:
● You want the convenience of simply plugging in your alarm, with the added protection of battery backup in case of power outage.
● You would like to easily view the carbon monoxide (CO) levels in your home.
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:

When I purchased the Model CO615 this was the first time to buy this model FIRST ALERT. This unit worked trouble free for over 6 YEARS. What happen is that it started to false ON . So that told me that it had seen its useful LIFE TIME. GOOD JOB FIRST ALERT TO THE RESCUE.

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.

We bought three of newer CO monitors. The new ones use 2 AA batteries in place of the 9 V one, These are smaller, slimmer and look better!
