Great price. Hot
Has anyone used one of these? One of the few things that I'm sceptical about "going cheap" on are these sensors, but if there is anyone out there who know's about CO sensors and can give me some info as to why this device is safe to use, then I'd be happy to pick a couple up
I have the kidde make but not this model, very decent company.

It wouldn't be on sale if it wasn't safe to use.

Really? So you can personally guarantee that everything that is for sale is perfectly safe and fit for task? I've read about a LOT of CO alarms that are basically useless, continually giving false alarms.

If they're giving false positives it means they're working but are badly positioned. Most gas appliances will give off a little CO when starting up. If a detector is positioned wrong, it'll pick that up.

In that case, what happens when another model is put in the same place and doesnt get triggered? That's the issue people have had, one goes off, another doesnt. Then, which one is working? Which one do you trust? Hence my initial question. I havent used them, they're for my retired parents, and I dont want them potentially relying on something that isnt up to the job on something as serious as this.

Anything is better than nothing.
Recently Kidde products have let me down, I bought the better version of this which had a built-in battery and it died within 2 weeks.

YMMV

So false positives that you'll eventually ignore are better than nothing? That makes zero sense.

Anyway, sorry for this going off topic OP. Back to my original query...

No you'll only get false positives if it's badly positioned. Refer to M.I.

Appologies it's my fire alarm, which is kiddeFirex, which is very good. My carbon monoxide detector is the Honey well h450en.
