Consolidate Your Worries with the Vivint Carbon Monoxide Detector

You know having a carbon monoxide alarm is essential, but it’s easy to put off or forget. No need to worry. Vivint takes care of everything from installation to low-battery reminders.

What Makes the Vivint Carbon Monoxide Alarm Different?

The Vivint carbon monoxide monitor has an electrochemical detector that’s designed to identify elevated levels of carbon monoxide quicker than other detectors.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors Are Critical in Every Home

Carbon monoxide is invisible, odorless, and tasteless. Without a carbon monoxide sensor, it’s nearly impossible to detect this toxic gas.

Thankfully, carbon monoxide detectors are supported with every Vivint security system. Feel secure knowing a professional will properly install them for you.

Your CO Detector Is Part of Something Bigger, and Smarter

Vivint carbon monoxide detectors work with the rest of your smart home. If your CO alarm is triggered, your system will automatically work to get you to safety and clear fumes out.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do if your carbon monoxide detector goes off?

The most important thing to do is to get your family members (including the furry ones) out of the house if your carbon monoxide monitor triggers an alarm. Vivint will contact your local emergency services for you.

Why is my carbon monoxide detector beeping?

You’ll be notified via your control panel when it’s time to change the batteries in your Vivint carbon monoxide detector. That means you won’t get awakened in the middle of the night. The CO detector will only start beeping once the battery is nearly dead.

You will also hear beeping every 45 seconds when it’s time to get a carbon monoxide detector replacement.

Where should a carbon monoxide detector be placed?

You should place CO detectors on every level of your home. Be sure to install them close enough to sleeping areas that the alarm will be loud enough to wake you up. It’s a smart idea to place a carbon monoxide detector alarm 5-20 feet from potential sources of CO leaks such as water heaters or furnaces.

How do you know if you have a carbon monoxide leak?

It’s virtually impossible to know if you have a carbon monoxide leak without a CO detector. That’s because carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible gas.

Symptoms of CO exposure include headache, nausea, fatigue, and dizziness. These flu-like symptoms are easy to confuse with other causes, another reason to be sure you have carbon monoxide detectors.

What can cause a carbon monoxide leak in a house?

Engines, water heaters, furnaces, fires, stoves, space heaters, generators, and more can cause the presence of carbon monoxide. The risk of carbon monoxide leaks increases in the winter as people tend to use more fuel-burning devices.
