The Kidde AC/DC direct plug-in carbon monoxide alarm with battery backup (model KN-COB-LCB-A) provides you and your family with a warning signal to protect against dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in your home. With an increasing number of state and local governments passing legislation requiring CO detectors in homes, it’s never been a better time to safeguard your family against carbon monoxide exposure.
It easily installs in any AC wall outlets, and it includes a battery backup (9-volt battery included) that provides protection even during power outages, when many CO incidences occur. The KN-COB-LCB-A uses advanced electrochemical sensing technology to monitor for carbon monoxide levels in your home. A tamper-resistant feature deters tampering or theft of the unit, alerting you if the unit has been unplugged or if it has come loose from the wall outlet.
Offering a clean, low-profile design, it features two color LEDs for at-a-glance status updates. The green LED shows that AC power is present and that the alarm is working properly. The red LED will illuminate when the alarm detects carbon monoxide and indicates that you and your family should move to fresh air. When the unit detects carbon monoxide, the alarm sounds four short beeps (rated at 85 decibels at 10 feet), followed by five seconds of silence, and then followed by another set of four short beeps. Additionally, when the battery runs low a chirp warning will sound for up to 12 hours to remind you to replace the battery. This carbon monoxide alarm is UL Listed and offers a five-year limited warranty.
