The First Alert PC900V Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm provides maximum protection and has a new sleek, slimmer design, which adds an element of style to safety. The PC900V has a modern, thin square design that’s less than an inch thick (half the size of a standard alarm), while still providing all the protection you need to keep what matters most safe and secure. The PC900V is unique because it features (2) alarm systems that work independently to detect both evidence of fire and carbon monoxide (CO) through the electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor and patented smoke entry system that allows a direct smoke path to the photoelectric sensor to detect regular and slow, smoldering fires. The combination of the smoke and CO (carbon monoxide) sensor and First Alert’s Nuisance Free Technology will reduce false alarms that result from cooking and shower steam.This combination alarm includes power LED and alarm indicator, end of life signal and mute and single test/silence button so you can test your alarm regularly. Studies have shown that children respond quicker to a voice alerting them to danger rather than a beeping horn. The voice and location alert feature ensures residents are aware of the smoke or CO danger and provides the room location of where it was detected so you can plan your best escape route. Installation is simple with the versatile wall and ceiling mount and the easy slide in mounting bracket. This alarm has a white finish and is powered by (2) “AA” batteries (included). First Alert Maximum Protection Alarms are the newest tech creation to provide a modern safety solution in the fire safety industry. The First Alert PC900V Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm comes with a 10 year limited warranty that protects against defects in material and workmanship.
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 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.
