This is our second combustible gas detector. We added this one when we installed a second gas-log fireplace in the new room. These units work well, especially for propane which can collect along the floors and low places in the home. Most outlets are placed perfectly for detecting it. No wiring, no installation. Just plug it in and it starts working.

The instructions are very good and easy to read and follow.

I tested the unit by using an extension cord and placing it in the firebox while I pushed in on the pilot light valve. The unit triggered right away so it takes very little gas to set it off. The unit also has a test button so you don't have to do this. (I just wanted to see if propane would really set it off. Not that I don't trust test buttons, but real gas is better than a test button in my mind.) Most LP vendors will test your detectors for free with a spray can of propane. (This is the way we had the first detector tested.)

The alarm on this unit is a little louder than on our older one but still not as loud as I would like. We can hear it from anywhere in the house so it will work. In any case, I believe it is loud enough to wake me up if I was sleeping. Still, I wouldn't mind a louder alarm.

There is a blinking indicator light so you can tell the unit is working.

Neither unit has triggered falsely. And we have had no leaks but I feel safer with the detectors.

For the price I don't think you can find a better unit, and certainly not find one easier to install.

I bought the Safety Siren several years ago after a gaz valve on the fireplace was not fully closed after use. Did some research and the Safery Siren came out very high.

The detector goes off one Saturday morning. Because the fireplace is in the den, that's where the Safety Siren is located. With some troubleshooting, it turns out one of the valves on the range is leaking gas. A call was made to the gas company and they advise to turn off the gas to the house and wait for a service technician to arrive.

A technican shows up in 10 to 15 minutes, not bad. He takes his detector to the range area and no alarm. He then goes to other areas of the house where gas lines are present. No alarms. Then the technician says that I probably got the Safety Siern off the internet and wasn't as accurate as the one he had since his was a professional model and is calibrated every three months and is used by most gas companies in the US, blah blah blah, and the Safety Siren most likely had a false reading.

Ok, that did it. I got an extnesion cord and plugged the Safety Siren in and moved it around the cook top. Sure enough it picked up a leak at one of the valves/knobs. The technician stuck his sensor near the knob and it detected gas. Hummm, I bought the S/S several years ago, it's never been calibrated since it left the factory.

Kudos to the gas company who handled the situation very well from start to resolution. Consider using S/S though.

Our chimney was struck by lightning over the summer and because the gas line was not properly bonded by the builder, the lightning found its way through the cheap gas line and exited near duct work. This resulted in 2 gas leaks and the line was replaced by the builder. Since then, my wife and I still smell gas in the basement when lighting a fire in the family room. So...we decided to buy this natural gas detector.

It's been in the basement for a month but hasn't detected any gas, even though we can smell it. Today, I had the builder come in again and they found yet another small leak. Repairs complete, I decided to test this detector out with direct exposure to the natural gas feed in the fireplace. I placed it in the fireplace and closed the doors to the fireplace after turning on the gas (without lighting it). As is expected, the nauseating natural gas smell was strong but the detector never made a single sound - except for when I pushed the test/reset button.

Perhaps I got a dud but I'd encourage any buyer to verify that it works before depending on it for your safety!!!

I read many reviews here of buyers trying to test the device with gas grills and stoves, then writing a poor review because it did not immediately work. Reviewers should read the instructions before posting. Per the manufactures recommendation ( In Big Bold Letter) the detector requires a 24 hour warm up period before it will work (after being stored).

I was eager to test out unit after reading several poor reviews. I tested it with gas from an unlit blowtorch. The alarm sounded immediately. I tested it from several feet away also, and it worked every time.

I read & followed instructions - plugged in for 24+ hours to warm up.

The indicator lights led me to believe unit was functioning properly however it most certainly was not.

Here's my method of testing to determine the unit I received was a useless and expensive piece of clutter...

1) Used extension cord to hold unit directly over gas stove burners.
2) Turned gas on high for nearly 30 seconds until gas smell was very strong.
3) No alarm of any type, audible or visual.

Clearly Defective.
