CO35 / Detecting carbon monoxide


Hot water heaters are often installed in bathrooms, raising the risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, a lethal risk. This CO concentration detecting device combined with a light and sound alarm is mounted on the shower head. When it detects a CO concentration exceeding 35 ppm, the shower head will automatically activate the alarm, which will reduce accidental death from CO poisoning.
