Sealed-in 10-year lithium battery Automatically activates when attached to bracket Tests for proper operation resets CO alarm Green LED flashes every 30 seconds Red LED will pulse when CO detected alarm pattern will sound The Kidde C3010D is a 10-year, sealed battery, carbon monoxide alarm that uses electro-chemical sensing technology to protect you and family from the dangers of carbon monoxide. The C3010D alarm will automatically activate when attached to the mounting bracket. At the end of alarm life, the unit will chirp, indicating the alarm is in need of replacement. A screwdriver can be used to deactivate the unit, stopping the end-of-life chirp and making it safe for disposal. The inside cover of the mounting bracket features a quick reference guide for what to do in case of an alarm. The C3010D is easy to install and is suitable for all living areas. Ten-year life and limited warranty. Kidde infographic view larger Carbon monoxide alarm in the living room view larger Kidde Worry-Free Digital Carbon Monoxide Alarm Kidde Worry-Free carbon monoxide (CO) alarms offer 10 years of continuous detection from the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America – carbon monoxide. The UL-listed alarms are the first and only models to contain a 10-year sensor as well as a sealed-in lithium battery proven to power the alarm for a decade. These two state-of-the-art technologies combine to create a premier level of protection. Digital Display Screen clearly shows the level of CO in that room and updates the reading every 15 seconds. Homeowners have peace of mind knowing their CO alarm is always on, and they never have to be hassled by low-battery chirps or battery replacement. Until now, a CO sensor operated for five to seven years, based on the manufacturer. The Worry-Free alarms last nearly twice as long as the average model. Long-Life Sealed Lithium Battery: Why It’s Needed Each year, fire departments respond to an average of 72,000 CO poisoning incidents, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Known as the ‘silent killer,’ carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless and invisible. The only safe way to detect it is with a working CO alarm. Industry surveys find approximately half of U.S. homes have a carbon monoxide alarm installed, most of those are battery-operated. A recent survey conducted on behalf of Kidde found homeowners’ number one fire safety complaint is a low battery chirp. Worry Free Benefits The C3010D carbon monoxide detection unit provides one decade of protection; the sealed lithium batter provides 10 years of continuous power. It is also both maintenance-free and hassle-free; never replace a battery during the alarm’s operating life and no need to worry about the batteries being removed. Additionally, this Worry Free unit is the longest sensor life available and is proven effective for ten years with quick and easy installation by simply sliding the alarm onto the mounted bracket which activates it automatically. Money savings: no batteries to buy and replace every six months, save up to $40 over the life of the alarm. What's in the box One single Kidde Worry-Free Digital Carbon Monoxide Alarm.

After my family was diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning (long term at low rates over a period of a couple of years, resulting in several ER trips and doctor visits before diagnosis), I did a TON of research on carbon monoxide detectors. We had a generic detector previously that NEVER sounded! I found out that regulations are relatively loose on detectors...so I was picky about what I replaced it with. Once the problem with our furnace was identified and we ..
