CO sensors allow you to measure carbon monoxide, which can be a silent killer. Kimo’s CO 110 measures CO from 0 to 500 ppm.

Carbon monoxide detectors are one of the safest and fastest ways to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. These devices work just like smoke detectors. Whenever the smart carbon monoxide detectors detect CO gas, it triggers the alarm.

How Carbon Monoxide Detectors Work?

The smart CO Sensor starts an alarm when it census a certain level of carbon monoxide for a stipulated time. The carbon monoxide sensor sets off the alarm depending on the sensor used in the device. Here is a list of sensors that are used in carbon monoxide detectors.

  • Biometric sensor: This type of sensor comes with a gel that changes color when it comes in touch with the CO gas. This color change of the gel sets off the alarm.
  • Metal Oxide Semiconductor: In this type of sensor, the circuitry system of the silica chip detects the presence of carbon monoxide, reducing the electrical resistance. This change in the electrical resistance triggers the alarm.
  • Electrochemical sensor: Electrodes of the sensor can detect the changes in the electrical current when it comes in contact with carbon monoxide. This change sets off the alarm.

Put the carbon monoxide sensor in the CO-free zone to silence the blaring alarm.

Various Types of carbon monoxide detectors That You Can Buy

Overall, the smart CO detector alerts you as soon as they detect carbon monoxide in your environment. There are several types of CO sensors available on the website of Kimo Instruments. While some of these devices are simple plug-in types, others are battery-powered and act somewhat like smoke detectors. What’s more, there are certain devices that can be used both as the smoke detector and CO sensor. You can integrate the smart systems with your home security system or your mobile devices.

How to Maintain the CO Sensors?

Irrespective of the type of CO detector you own, it is always better to maintain the devices on a regular basis. Here are some tips that can help you with that.

  • Test the devices at least once a month.
  • If you have a battery-powered device, make sure to change the batteries regularly.
  • Read the manufacturing guidelines of the sensors and replace the devices accordingly.
