The First Alert CO605 Plug-In Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup and Digital Display helps protect you and your family from the deadly threat of carbon monoxide. This carbon monoxide alarm with battery backup and backlit digital display easily plugs into any standard outlet with no additional mounting necessary. Battery backup ensures alarm works even during power outages. Easy view backlit digital display ensures viewing of danger, current or peak CO levels. The device illuminates hazard level when in alarm mode or when any button is pressed. It also features a single button to test and mute unnecessary or non-emergency alarms. Remote mute silences nuisance alarms by pressing any button on a standard household remote control (remote not included). The device also features low battery signal indicator and a CO level indicator which automatically resets to zero every 24 hours. Also the end of life timer chirps when it is time to replace the device. It includes 2 AA batteries and meets UL 2034 standards.

However, the major concerns seen in this device is its flimsy battery door made of cheap plastic. Sometimes the battery door does not close properly. The device is 2 inches thick and does not give it a compact look.

Overall, the First Alert Plug-In Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup and Digital Display is an easy to install, UL listed alarm that combines advanced technology with user-friendly design and reasonable pricing. This Carbon monoxide detector utilizes electro-chemical sensor for increased accuracy and comes with 7-year limited warranty.
