The First Alert SCO5CN Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm features dual sensors to detect both smoke and carbon monoxide in a single device. A photoelectric sensor detects the smoke most often produced by smoldering fires, and minimizes false alarms from cooking smoke or shower steam. Additionally, the advanced electrochemical CO sensor detects carbon monoxide leaks from multiple sources, such as faulty fuel burning appliances, blocked chimneys, and generators running inside or too close to homes. A loud, 85 decibel siren alerts you to the threat; unique alarm sounds and indicator lights on its face distinguish a smoke warning from a carbon monoxide warning. This carbon monoxide and smoke detector is battery operated, so you don't need an electrician for installation. Requiring just two AA batteries and featuring an easy access battery compartment for quick changes, this smoke and carbon monoxide detector has a single button that allows you to silence a false alarm or test the unit.
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 its 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.
The First Alert SCO5CN carbon monoxide and smoke alarm uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor-the most accurate technology available. The alarm uses photoelectric smoke sensing technology which is environmentally friendlier and which reduces nuisance alarms, making it ideal for cooking areas. It is also great for sensing slow smoldering fires quickly. The permanent sensors last the lifetime of the alarm. The test/silence button both silences a non-threatening alarm or low battery warning and allows you to test the unit's functionality. A low battery signal alerts you to replace the battery and end-of-life alarm of three chirps alerts you to replace the unit. Two AA batteries are included. 5-year limited warranty. UL listed. Not available for sale in Massachusetts.--Bree Norlander

I've also had it alert to smoke from me accidentally letting a damper close while there was a full-on fire and smoke began to fill the room. Again...oops.
I am glad to know they work, and, while I've been aware of the sources of my troubles so far, I am confident these will alert me if there is some real trouble happening.
Do not rely on an “Ion” alarm to warn you of smoldering or smoke until it’s a breathing and moving fire. In other words , if you wait until it senses heat/fire, the smoke may have rendered you incapacitated, and it won’t help at that point. This detects “Smoke” and carbon monoxide, which is in my opinion the safer and gives you ample warning. check you tube or with the fire departments to make your own choice. Living in Florida we occasionally run a generator following Hurricanes and Tropical storms, so it’s a must to have the carbon monoxide feature.
I tested both alarms myself with a smoke bucket, I was never able to trigger the ION alarm with smoke only in my test. Watch a few YouTube videos on the difference in alarm sensors.
....1 year update,, no quality issues what so ever, and I own 4 of these. The only occasional announce is that if my bathroom door is open following a steamy shower, this detector is near within a few feet of the bathroom door, and will trigger a brief alarm. This only happens if we forget to run the exhaust fan in the bathroom. To be honest I’m okay with this occasional annoyance reminds me how well it works. Over cooking has only caused a false alarm when we burnt a bag of popcorn in the microwave so it’s a good balance of sensitivity.
I am in the middle of some big renovations to my 100 year old home. I already have a smoke detector in every bedroom and co detector near my furnace. Building inspector came in the other day and “suggested” some additional ones. So I am adding one in the new finished basement, one on each of the two upper floors and replacing the older unit by the furnace. But I’m $5k over budget now and hardwiring in a 100 year old house is obscene. So I went with these.
Please people, don’t mess around. These are pretty damn cheap insurance. Just do it. Now. You know you will be glad you did. I am. I’m actually grateful to the inspector, he got me off my butt.
These are inexpensive but very reliable and dependable units. Will take you about 5 minutes to install. What my local fire department recommended. I want to sleep soundly and most importantly, wake up with my whole family.
Thanks for reading
Just got off the phone with First Alert and they are sending me a replacement for free, and with free shipping. Great customer service.
The alarm arrived in clear clam-shell packaging (yuck). In the shell was the alarm, 2 AA alkaline batteries, mounting screws, and instructions. I am a guy so who needs instructions. I am very satisfied with the packaging.
Installation was a breeze. The two batteries were installed so I just had to push in the battery tray. The new alarm was replacing an old First Alert fire alarms that we have had for over 20 years. I now know you should replace alarms every 10 years. I removed the old alarm by loosening the mounting screws a couple turns, turning the old alarm to align the mounting holes and that was that. The new alarm has a base and alarm. The new base fit perfectly over the existing screws from the old alarm. Tighten the screws and the hard part is done. Then place the alarm over the mounting plate and give a 1/3 turn and you are done.
After it were mounted I pushed the test button and the unit gave two sets of 3 beeps. Happy alarm.
I have heard that the alkaline batteries provided last between one and two years. When they do wear out I will be trying Lithium batteries to see if they last longer. I tried Lithium 9V batteries in the old alarms and two out of four had corrosion on the positive terminal after one year. (P.S. the other three were new fire only alarms). The only time our fire alarms have ever gone off is when my bride has used them as a dinner bell. Alarm goes off = Dinner is done. PBJ for dinner tonight.
