  • According to statistics, there are more than 3,000 incidents of carbon monoxide detectors false alarms in the UK each year, which lead to the dispatch of the fire brigade. In particular, the number of false alarms triggered by hospitals is the most, which has brought great trouble to the fire brigade, and people have begun to question the reliability of carbon monoxide detector. In fact, there are many factors for judging whether a product is reliable. People cannot say it is unreliable because of the false alarm of carbon monoxide, because in public places such as hospitals, there are too many factors that trigger the alarm of carbon monoxide detectors. irritating gas, someone smoking in the hospital, a child or the elderly accidentally pressed the button of the detector, etc. We cannot deny the contribution of carbon monoxide detectors to protecting people's health and safety because of false positives. From 1960 to the present, people's increased safety awareness has increased their demand for carbon monoxide detectors, which also reflects the fact that carbon monoxide detectors are recognized. It has to be said that carbon monoxide detectors can indeed reduce the probability of carbon monoxide poisoning, but as the service life increases, the detectors will also be out of line aging, performance degradation, power failure, etc. At this time, we need to replace new detectors to continue protection our safety. The equipment problems mentioned above are exhibited by all detectors. In addition to regular inspection and maintenance, the best way is to choose a reliable detector from the beginning. Reliable detectors involve many aspects, such as performance, duration of use, compliance with EN standards, test data, etc. The linked article will explain in detail. In short, it is very important to choose a reliable detector, but we can't simply rely on the carbon monoxide detector, we also need to regularly detect and maintain it to keep it working in good condition. https://brojensmarthome.com/are-carbon-monoxide-detector-reliable/ [more]

  • Are you troubled by the false alarm of the carbon monoxide detector, when the alarm goes off, you wake up from your sleep, immediately pick up the child and rush out of the house, calling 911? Will you go mad when the people involved finally come to your house and you are told the alarm is a false alarm? False alarms are unavoidable, though they are a headache, for safety reasons, move outside immediately and call 911. Today, I’m going to share a few tips to reduce false alarms from carbon monoxide alarms, and I hope they’ll help you all. Maintenance And Tips: Test carbon monoxide detectors monthly to see if they are functioning properly Check/replace battery-powered detector batteries every six months to prevent dead power Clean the detector monthly to remove dust from the surface, do not use water or liquids such as disinfectants, because the detector will short-circuit due to internal water When using the kitchen, please turn on the hood and open the window Do not grill indoors Do not turn on multiple heaters at the same time Avoid Installing Detectors In Wrong Locations False alarms can easily occur when you install a detector in the wrong place, such as next to a fireplace or 5 feet around a heater. Too close to the source of the carbon monoxide will have high concentrations of carbon monoxide, which can easily lead to false alarms. Therefore, avoid installing detectors in the following places: Dusty, dirty, greasy, and confined environments, such as garages, storage rooms Avoid direct sunlight Ten feet from a fire or gas source in the kitchen, nearby air currents can send smoke into the detector causing unnecessary alarms Room with high temperature and high humidity, which is not only make the detector false alarm, but may be scrapped due to water or high temperature in the detector, such as shower room, sauna room, humidifier, dishwasher, laundry room, etc. Why Is Carbon Monoxide Alarm Beeping The detector will sound an alarm in three cases: the presence of carbon monoxide gas is detected, the low battery alarm and the detector reaching end of life. The beeps of each detector convey different meanings, so refer to the alarm’s user manual for the specific model. E.g: 4 beeps and a pause: The alarm has detected carbon monoxide in the air, please evacuate the house as soon as possible and call the police 1 beep every minute: This means the battery is low, please replace the battery in time 5 beeps every minute: This means the detector has reached the end of its life, please replace it with a new one If you’re sure that there’s no carbon monoxide present and the alarm is still beeping, maybe it’s a false alarm, it’s possible that the alarm needs to be reset. To do this, press and hold the test button on the alarm for 5 seconds. If the alarm still doesn’t stop beeping, it might need to be replaced. More details about beep please click here. [more]

  • With the improvement of people's awareness of home safety, carbon monoxide detectors are installed in almost every family, which greatly guarantees family safety. However, the beeping sound of carbon monoxide detectors can sometimes be a nuisance. People always think that when the beeping sound is sounded, there is a dangerous concentration of carbon monoxide around. In fact, this is not the case. May be It is the self-detection of the detector, or it may be that the detector is reporting to the owner that the battery is low or the service life is exhausted. The following article is a list of almost all detectors beeping, which can be more effective for people to understand what the detector is trying to convey. https://brojensmarthome.com/why-is-your-carbon-monoxide-detector-beeps-and-how-to-deal-with-it/ [more]
