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

Top Customer Reviews
**(12/20/08)**I would like to amend my review. A week after installing, the alarm started "chirping" 3 times at irregular intervals (once at 4:00am Sunday, then Tuesday at 1:30pm). I changed the batteries after a third incident (again in the early morning) and it was fine for another four days. The next time I took it down and noticed the back indicates the 3 "chirps" is to replace the alarm. I have had the thing less than a month and have to replace it already?!?!? What a CROCK!
**(12/22/08)**I called and spoke to a rep from First Alert on the phone who explained to me the unit runs a self-test every 90 seconds and if it fails, the alarm 'chirps'. He asked me a few questions and promised me a new unit in a week to ten days.
**(1/14/09)** I received a new unit in the mail today, hard to install with my fingers crossed.
**(3/3/09)**Another malfunctioning alarm, at five o'clock in the morning. I am through with this junk!! Buy only if you want to replace every 4-6 weeks.
Each time, I tested the batteries. Each time, they were fine. I ever replaced the batteries a couple of times, just to be sure.
Don't buy these. They'll drive you to drink.
Within 3 months of installation, the alarm began intermittently emitting the "3 rapid chirps" alarm, which means that the entire unit is bad and must be replaced. Extremely unreliable!
Another thing is that I did not notice this but there is a 5 year life on these detectors and then they will chirp without any choice but to replace them. So even if yours works at first, you only will get 5 years out of it. I bought a total of 7 of these that cost me a few hundred and now I need to look for replacements. I wish I left all the old smoke detectors in.

Mounted in location of previous (old) detector just fine. One hopes we'll never hear anything from the First Alert but we feel more comfortable knowing its there for our safety.Published 9 days ago by Scott Brown
seems to use batteries faster than just the smoke detector. but it is worth it to have two in one devicePublished 16 days ago by patriot
Works Good. My last First Alert lasted about 40 years, hopefully this is as good.Published 1 month ago by Gary Smith
Like the other reviews, ours was going off at random and wouldn't stop. We purchased two of these - one for each of our children's bedrooms. Read morePublished 1 month ago by lunacoyo
