What should you pay attention to when you buy a carbon monoxide alarm?

Carbon monoxide is a gas which is undetectable to humans. Therefore, you will never be warned by a strange smell or a visible vapor. Only a carbon monoxide alarm can warn you when necessary. Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning or worse with a reliable carbon monoxide alarm.

A CO alarm should display the standard NEN-EN 50291 on its packaging. This code means the CO alarm meets all the technical requirements. Different CO alarms have different life spans. You would ideally have a CO alarm that lasts at least five years, so please check this to avoid any unwelcome surprises.

If you are planning to link different alarms, it is important to choose connectable alarms. Not all of them are. Alarms can be connected in two different ways, namely wireless and wired. At Alecto we have a selection of both. Are you interested in a CO alarm from Alecto? Then please click here!

    Goedendag,
    Welke CO-melder is draadloos koppelbaar met een rookmelder?
    Met vriendelijke groet.
