Kidde 900-0235 Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide Alarm, Long Life AC Powered with Battery Backup
About Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer
The leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in North America, carbon monoxide (CO) is often referred to as the silent killer because it's odorless, tasteless, and invisible. Carbon monoxide poisoning can come about via a number of sources, including everyday items and appliances in your home or office. And because symptoms of CO poisoning mimic the flu or other common illnesses, CO poisoning can often go undiagnosed.
When placed on every level of your home, alarms like the Nighthawk 900-0234 can help protect everyone in the house from CO exposure by giving an unmistakable audible signal when CO levels have reached an unhealthy point.
Easy-to-Read Digital Display Shows CO Levels
Featuring a small, sleek, discreet design that's suitable for all living areas, the Nighthawk 900-0234 is preferred among CO alarms because of its digital display. This display clearly shows current levels of CO--from 30 to 999 ppm--and it updates every 15 seconds, giving you an indication of any abrupt changes or alarming trends. The display also shows the peak CO level recorded by the alarm since it was last reset or unplugged.
Loud Alerts Signal Elevated Levels and Low Battery Life
The Nighthawk 900-0234 immediately sounds a loud warning signal if CO has reached an elevated, unsafe level in your home, giving you plenty of time to leave the premises. You'll also hear a clearly audible alert when the product is nearing the end of its seven-year life, or the battery needs changing.
Battery Operated for Continuous Monitoring
For added convenience, the Nighthawk 900-0234 also has a battery backup, which means you won't have to worry about power outages. Unlike many A/C units, the Nighthawk will monitor continuously without interruptions. And because it has a seven-year product life, it's able to provide protection up to 40 percent longer than other units.
User-Friendly, Protective Features
For added peace of mind, the Nighthawk 900-0234 has a test/reset button that allows you to verify that the alarm is functioning properly, and a tamper-resistant feature that works by putting the unit into constant alarm mode if it has been unplugged or has come loose from the outlet.
Compliancy and Warranty Information
The Nighthawk 900-0234 is UL listed and is backed by a seven-year limited warranty.
