The First Alert SC07CN Combination Talking Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector helps protect you and your family from two deadly threats: fire and carbon monoxide. This battery-operated unit includes a voice alarm that tells you the location of dangerous smoke or carbon monoxide in your home.

WHERE TO PLACE SAFETY PRODUCTS:

Smoke Alarms: 1 in every bedroom and at least 1 on every level of the home.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms: 1 on every level of the home and 1 in each sleeping area.

2 systems work independently to detect both fire and carbon monoxide View larger.


Where does carbon monoxide come from?
Two-in-One Alarm System Protects Your Family
The SC07CN is unique because it features two alarm systems that work independently to detect both evidence of fire and carbon monoxide (CO). Easily programmable, this device features separate audible and visible signals that indicate dangerous levels of smoke or CO.

For example, if a high level of CO is detected in your kitchen, you'll hear a clear message saying, "Warning: evacuate. Carbon monoxide in kitchen. Evacuate." You'll also hear a loud, 85-decibel alarm and see a flashing red LED that clearly indicates the nature of the threat. Together, these audible and visible signals let you know precisely where the danger is, so you can plan the safest possible escape route. This extra level of protection is something a standard alarm simply can't provide.

Powered by two 'AA' batteries (included), this alarm uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor--the most accurate CO sensor available. It also uses photoelectric sensing technology, which provides optimal protection from smoldering fires and reduces false alarms like those caused by cooking smoke and shower steam. The SC07CN even stores CO readings and verbally communicates the highest level of CO detected, so you can easily discern patterns that indicate it's time to check your appliances or other combustible items for CO leaks.

For convenience, most household remote controls are compatible with this system, meaning you can quickly test or silence the alarm. Additionally, an alarm mute button silences unnecessary alarms and allows you to test alarm function. There's also a low-battery warning that indicates waning power--a low-battery mute quiets the low-battery signal for up to eight hours. Finally, an end-of-life alarm that tells you when it's time to replace the unit, and a side-access drawer makes for easy battery changes.This alarm comes with a five-year warranty.

Carbon Monoxide: The Leading Cause of Accidental Deaths in the U.S.
Carbon monoxide, an invisible, odorless gas, is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don't know they are suffering from CO poisoning until it's too late. Because you can't see, taste, or smell it, CO can kill you before you even know it's there. Likewise, exposure to low levels over time can make you ill.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that every home have at least one carbon monoxide alarm with an audible warning signal--like the SC07CN--installed near sleeping areas. An alarm like the SC07CN can detect the CO you can't see, smell, or taste before it causes any physical harm to you or your family.

Smoke Alarms Offer the Best Chance of Escaping Deadly Fires
Fire is a deadly threat to every household; it can strike anywhere, any time. The frightening truth is that in 2005, there were nearly 381,000 home fires in the U.S., resulting in over 16,000 casualties. Because of the very real threat of fire, it is vital that every household uses tools for fire protection. Smoke alarms like the SC07CN are the easiest, most cost-effective way to keep your family safe from fire. The more smoke alarms you have installed in your home, the more your safety increases.

From the Manufacturer

Carbon monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don't know they are suffering from CO poisoning until it's too late. Since symptoms of CO poisoning are like the flu, you might not even know you're in danger at first. That's why a carbon monoxide alarm is an excellent way to protect your family. It can detect the CO you can't see, smell or taste in the air. One convenient alarm helps protect against two deadly household threats. Includes a voice alarm with location, when programmed, voice tells you location of unit if smoke or carbon monoxide is detected.

WARNING: The detector is built with a "feature" that First Alert thought was a good idea... Allow the user to "test" the alarm with a Remote Control. Hold either the Channel or Volume key down for 3-5 seconds and the alarm will run through it's 20 second tone / voice alarm test.

We have normal size bedrooms in the house and the thing goes off constantly in a three bedrooms. It's funny when it happens to the kids, but in our room, at midnight, just pisses you off.

I called First Alert... Sorry sir, there is now way to disable the feature.

Don't waste your money. Buy something else. Ours are going into the trash.

UPDATE - UPDATE UPDATE - UPDATE

First Alert called me back... Turns out there is a way to disable the Infrared Sensor for the Remote Control, IF it was manufactured after November 2009:

1) Remove the batteries from the cradle.
2) Put the batteries back in the cradle.
3) Hold down the "Test" button and slide the cradle back into the alarm
4) Release the "Test" button AFTER the first chirp.

It worked!!! I think I'll leave the one's in the kids rooms alone :-}

Kudos to First Alert for calling me back wwith the information!

A smoke and carbon monoxide detector with voice alert and 2 easy accessible AA batteries for a good price... sounds good, right?

Well, not at all. This product fails on all levels. Not only every feature turns to be badly designed, I found my 3 units to be also quite defective. Bottom line: avoid this product. Not worth your money and time investment needed to return it later.

Now for the details:

- First the look. It's subjective but quite frankly it's bulky and doesn't look that good. The Kidde ones are more stylish.

- The "easy" tray with 2 AA batteries. Good on paper but fails on reality: it's really hard to open the tray to change batteries once the device hangs from the celling. I end up have to unmount it, so it's not really more beneficial than a back-loader battery compartment and it probably contributes in the bulky design.

- Voice alert. Also good on the paper. You pay extra for that voice, but in fact instead of a nice calming voice, you get a distorted scream that is incredibly painfully loud (86dB IIRC, kind of like a big jet at take-of) and yet manages to be hard to understand.

- Easy to trigger test mode with a flashlight. Also good on the paper. But there it goes from brilliant idea to a blatant marketing lie-by-omission: what the ads, the amazon text and the vendor's marketroid all fail to indicate is that ANY remote control or ANY neon light, including the now omnipresent compact fluorescent lights will actually trigger that alarm! You only learn that when reading the manual in the box. Want to change the radio volume? Boom, alert test mode goes on! Want to turn on the light at night? Boom, alert test mode goes on again with the atomic loud screaming voice!

The manufacturer commented on the review below
WARNING: The SC07NC CO/Smoke detector has a feature where you can test the alarm using your IR remote control. It runs it loud a test ANY TIME you use your remote. There is no way to turn this feature off. The package does not mention this fact, though on page 3 of their user's manual, they state that you cannot install it where you use a remote. Be warned: Do not buy this remote if you use or plan to use a remote control in the same room.

Beyond that, I like that it comes down easily with a twist of the product. Most products have this, too, such as the KIDDE Nighthawk.

The product runs on two AA batteries. It does not have the ability to wire to house power.

The manufacturer commented on this review(What's this?)
February 5, 2014
Due to the continuously evolving remote control technologies used within the home, we have removed the Remote Silence/Test feature from our model SCO7 alarm. This remote feature was removed in October of 2011 to improve the performance of this Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
I purchased this alarm for my condo about six months ago. The smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm are constantly going off for no apparent reason. The alarm has gone into test mode from my remote control. At 5 am this morning the fire alarm went off instructing me to evacuate my condo. There was no fire, causing me great early morning stress. Possibly I purchased a defective model, but needless to say I have removed the batteries and am looking for a replacement smoke alarm.

Seriously, this a terrible product. Sure, it may save your life on the ONE instance that it goes off when something is really wrong but you'll probably bash it to smitherines long before then after you hurt yourself trying to get out of a non burning, non gas filled home because the stupid thing is running one of its random "tests." You should buy this only if you hate your neighbors and/or love the adrenaline rush that comes with an alarm screaming at you.

I bought this stupid thing thinking the price and description indicated a good safe investment. I hung it on the wall near my computer. Occasionally it would wake me up in the middle of the night for no reason at all. I don't know if it was self-testing or just defective. I tried to get to it quick enough to figure out what the "voice" was saying, but I could never get to it in time. Today it went off and so did I. I smashed it to smitherines and threw it in the garbage. First Alert? Never again!
