Where is best place to position and how many would you need ? And if there is carbon monoxide how to get rid?
Does it detect smoke?
This is a useful resource: http://www.sterlinghomeinspections.com/sterling-home-inspection-blog/2013/12/10/carbon-monoxide-detector-placement-dos-and-donts
I have mine positioned just above the door frame
Thanks but don't you need one near bedrooms also as I'm assuming people are most vulnerable to poisoning whilst asleep? Do you have one alarm on each floor?
£30 again now
Bought! Thanks OP needed something like this! Got tcb as well so another 20poff lol
Carbon monoxide detector should be close the unit, like boiler (which are usually place in the kitchen or bathrooms) or solid fuel burners. Smoke detector should be away from kitchen. It save the trip switching alarm off every time the toaster is on or frying pan. Kitchen- only heat detector + carbon monoxide if boilers present, Corridor, bedrooms- smoke detector,
More CO risk from open fires/log burners, which is why they are required for any new appliance nowadays
Awesome deal, these should be fitted as standard in all homes with a gas supply.
Ordered 2 online for delivery on the 17th. Thanks OP been looking for this for a while.
Got my price-match request approved on 3rd attempt(was rejected for pricematch requests for Wolsely and Maplin). I need 4 of them...will place my order on JL now... Thanks OP

No stock anywhere down south. (mad)
No problem (y)
Apologies I must of read it wrong :D
I would like buy a carbon monoxide detector. The flat already has two smoke alarms connected to the electricity system. But both are very close to each other which doesn't seem good to me. They go off sometimes for no reason I always wonder if it's something from next door? Its a converted house so next doors boiler flue exit point is next to my single glazed bedroom window. So I smell boiler flue all the time and even laundry detergent smell when standing outside my front door which is just below the bedroom window. My boiler flue exit point is just above their kitchen. I would like to get a carbon monoxide detector for my bedroom but can I move the detector to another room from time to time and leave it on a table or countertop? Can I also just leave it in the bedroom on a table or on top of the wardrobe? Rather than having to fix it to the ceiling. Thank you for any suggestions. I have zero DIY skills and am learning a few basic skills slowly...I have learnt that the plasterboard walls don't need a drill I would wreck the plasterboard so I just use a screwdriver to put up a bathroom cabinet or mirror. So that I can do hopefully....
Thats perfectly normal
Take it outside and hold it in your car exhaust, with the engine running. That'll soon tell you if its working
Does anyone have one of these?, i have one and it never seems to read any reading on the LCD display at all always shows '0.00' surely it should be reading a very small amount of Carbon monoxide in the air at all times even if its '0.02' or something, so not sure if mines faulty or not!??
I have this one it is great (highfive)
Due in stock 10 March at £17.19 (y)
Oddly, when I follow the "Get Deal" link I can't see it sold by Amazon but when I then search for the ASIN direct I can. Maybe because I have already bought one - but want one for mother. Sorry HUKD for the lack of affiliate kick back!
The 10LLDCO is a sealed unit with a 10 year warranty, which has to include the battery as it is not a user replaceable part. The spec quoted above is for a (7DCO) unit that has user replaceable batteries. I bought this same unit for twice the price four years ago and luckily so far I have not seen any tigers.
Yeah, but it's not a 10 year battery; I made exactly the same mistake until I took a closer look. It's a 10 year warranty on the sensor.
Offer is back on at £86.01 (£1 more than before) with new VALENTINES18 code. Same £100 spend requirement. Valid until 22 Feb.
I guess a lot has to do with the room size and the proximity of the alarm to the fire etc. At home the alarm is in the hall, if we burn any food in the adjoining kitchen, the alarm activates within a very shot time.
Been after another for a while now, Cheers OP, HEAT!
bit cheaper https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kidde-Optical-Smoke-Carbon-Monoxide/dp/B075Z2PRGK
Fantastic deal. I been looking for a spare smoke alarm as my friend had a kitchen fire and the smoke alarm filled my the local Fireman didn’t go off until the flames were licking the sealing. So I think I will get a couple more just in cast. Be safe don’t be stingy when it comes to safety merry xmas everyone xxx
4% off via Quidco
Look good, any free delivery codes?
Thank you for uploading paid 18.00 just for the carbon one which broke after 2 or 3 months after it's 10th drop. Amazing value for this make plus batteries.
It’s not got the correct British standard number so not fit for purpose you do get what you pay for in this case it may result in death do sleazy you will die happy thinking I saved money on my co detector
i honestly can't see the problem with giving the underdog a chance, and surely Kidde started somewhere? i bought this simply to do one job, so i tested it and it does it's job which is why i decided to share, i won't lie... i did consider going for a brand but considering the price difference at the time, this was my choice (same one from China but £4ish). i can fully understand why some of you choose how you spend when it comes to family and personal safety which comes down to personal choice, and i honestly commend that... but for those where it comes down to budget and costs, and having at least something instead of nothing in terms of safety, then this is the same device at a lower cost... i consider that as a deal, and i thought that was the purpose of this site. reading some of your comments i'm undecided if some of you are genuinely concerned for others safety or just scaremongering, if the item posted offends you then i can only apologise, i only intended to possibly let a few people know of a very important but affordable bit of safety they may not already have. had mine about 9 months now but wish i'd got one much sooner.
I have one of these - cost me a couple of quid from Aliexpress. I've not died of Carbon Monoxide poisoning yet so it must work ... Seriously though, buy a decent brand one. I've got the Kidde one for the house with is vastly better quality. The reason I bought the cheap one was just to monitor any dodgy CO in the car.
Wouldn't risk it for a couple quid
Looks just like the three "don't buys" on Which. (Binwo, Mudder and AZT Zaviour) They failed between 6 and 15 of the 24 tests Which put them through.
new? seller? 2nd gen?
I've managed to pick one up for £51.00 on ebay, booooom!
Clever device - vastly overpriced. The Nest business model. Once all the early adopters have one the price will plumet.
These also act as a motion detector for the nest thermostat to tell it you are in the property if you are on another floor or in a room where you don't pass by the thermostat to tell it your home. Your phone can also do this via geo-fencing but it's a nice extra to have - as well as the carbon monoxide detection along with the smoke detection and it also "self tests" itself every month and sends an alert to your phone to tell you that all is good. Also if it senses smoke you receive a message to your phone - and also another when (if) it clears ;-) Dave
I can't answer this directly but when I was calculating the cost for wireless connected alarms (due to the boiler being in the garage and a lack of a wired interconnect) the cost difference between Nest and a comparable system was negligible (4 alarms). The trouble is now if I want more, the ₤100 each is a little hard to swallow and you can't even properly test them without burning your house down! However I spend more on other rubbish so why not on my safety?
Just rolled into work and they are here already :o Nice one cpc
In that case I have some wonderful alarms you can buy. Only 20 grand each thanks. Everything has a price. Including safety.
Rubbish. Sorry for being blunt, but I've had a number of CO alarms and they've never gone off, but if they had I would have spent some real time looking for the cause. No where near enough people have CO alarms, and its the invisible killer. Heat for OP. I have a £20 CO alarm, but would buy this pack if I didn't. VERY good to double check you've got enough alarms going into the Xmas period when people will likely have loads of candles and fairy lights increasing risks...... get them checked folks. ;)
The thing with the CO alarm is with a smoke alarm you can see what is causing it (toast) and go deal with the problem. If the CO alarm goes off what are you going to do, go stand outside and call a gas engineer out? No, you are going to debate for five minutes and then silence it and hope the whole thing blows over. So they are effectively a waste of time unless they warn you of imminent, severe CO problems instead of just using a hob or woodburner.
Nice one ,been thinking of ordering new smoke alarms as ours have been up years Especially with Xmas and all the lights up Or in reality ..... if the missus burns the turkey whilst im drunk on the sofa (highfive)
Expired this due to concern that it may be fake product. Apologies to those who went ahead and purchased. Sam
Yep. Confirmed. Fake looking CE mark on the packaging & no hint of compliance with EN50291. Sending back with a recommendation they stop selling them.
Lots of similar looking ones were pulled by eBay some time ago after a tv program tested them and found they either didn't ever go off or the detection was so poor you would likely be dead by the time they triggered. Would avoid these if you value your life and that of your family.
The only way you can test properly is to have some carbon monoxide to hand, if it goes off then great but if it doesn’t then surely amazon should be held responsible for allowing these for sale.
Or Liverpool or Man U and so on.

Price is nothing special, it's average according to camelcamelcamel:
Good deal if with prime! I just picked up a fire angel off ebay @ £15
great price! thanks
We have some of this model in our house. The best thing about it, in my opinion, is that it will show you the peak-reading. So you'll know if there's been a recent high concentration of CO even though it wasn't enough to actually trigger the alarm
Just fitted a log burner and had to fit one of these to meet building regs, paid about£35 so this is a decent price!
great deal, i have one in every room where gas is burned and an additional one in the landing too.
I bought one of these after reading that reddit thread of the guy who was writing himself messages and didn't realise due to carbon monoxide poisoning https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/34l7vo/ma_postit_notes_left_in_apartment/
Ditto that and invest in two if there is another fuel-burning appliance (especially if it is solid fuel) in a different room.
I used my special device thingy to google it (y)
Yes, lol http://bfy.tw/DEMG
Also in Colchester store, several there a few days ago.
I can't see the brand kiddie on the box :/ am I being stupid?
Quite literally a lifesaver. If you don't have at least one of these in your home, what are you doing?
Stick them in with any gas
About to move into my first house, which rooms would you recommend installing them?
A good buy, everyone should have one. I always take one on holiday and always sent my children with one for sleep overs etc, you'd be surprised how many people don't have them. 8)
Spotted few on the shelf of Tesco metro on the Parade in Leamington Spa.
Bought one the other day at £7.50 when it was reduced to clear - today it's on the shelf with a normal white label at £6.25. There's a couple left on the shelf at Roborough, Plymouth aisle 6.
Maybe 5 or 6 available in Crieff Road, Perth store; I spotted them this evening, but didn't buy as renewed mine earlier in the year.
I expect, like me, you looked in Tesco Direct. Where it's not. Look in Tesco Groceries, where it can be found. I searched for "First Alert" However, I bought one on my way home from the pub. Was afraid online would go oos.
Can't seem to find it online.
U got a link?
looks like Amazon have price matched it if you a a prime member already. Saves having to leave the house to get one.Your text here
I don't think you can put a real price on these type of alarms.No matter what the cost,if it works then buy it. Everyone should have one.I personally have two just in case one goes faulty.Not of the type listed but a different model. But they there too do a job and thankfully apart from my usual battery test,i have never had too see it in action.
They also don't work when things go bad. And also work when there is nothing wrong!! I would avoid
Correct, they only work when things go bad.
