Dangers of Carbon Monoxide and Natural Gas – The Silent Killers
Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide poisoning can be confused with flu symptoms, food poisoning and other illnesses. Carbon monoxide is undetected by humans or animals and can be fatal, causing death within minutes. Every year, thousands more people across the United States require emergency medical care for non-fatal carbon monoxide poisoning that can be debilitating (CDC). Medical experts believe that pregnant women, children and senior citizens are at even greater risk for CO poisoning.
Many homes with carbon monoxide alarms do not have alarms on every level. The CPSC recommends that one CO alarm be installed in the hallway outside the bedrooms in each separate sleeping area of the home. CO alarms may be installed into a plug-in receptacle or high on the wall. CO alarms should have battery backup. Avoid installation in locations near heating vents or one that can be covered by furniture or draperies.
Eliminate Nuisance Alarms with Microprocessor Software
Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Universal Security Instruments created microprocessor software to virtually eliminate nuisance alarms caused by non-hazardous sources such as cooking smoke and steamy showers. The only way to safely prevent nuisance alarms is to choose a smoke alarm with a microprocessor that will help distinguish a false alarm from a real fire. This alarm is the only product to offer smart microprocessor technology that is tested to provide the most reliable detection results and keep families safe.

Additionally, there needs to be a guide put on the unit and the frame to align the installation which would make the installation easier. I am going to throw all of these out and but another manufacturer.
Do not buy these and if you do be prepared that if you sauté mushrooms it will go off and when you try to install it you will have to hold you arms over you head for eternity and it still will not go on because the tabs do not automatically align.
Again, both new units beep that battery is low. When I contacted seller, their reply was that 'both units cannot be defective'. I guess I am lying. They said I should to pay to ship both units from NJ to them in CA for them to check. Wrong! A reputable company that stands by their product would send me a return shipping label at their cost not mine. I was stupid to buy USI products twice. But I have learned my lesson about ELECTIC VOLTAGE and USI and will not throw away more money to return a product that was defective out of the box. Do not buy this.
Please be warned and save yourself time, money, and a lot of aggravation ... DO NOT BUY USI products.
