First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm

What's to love: The alarm is designed to sit on a shelf or table and has a digital display which shows temperature and carbon monoxide (CO) concentration.

What does it do: Fire and CO alarms wear out and should be replaced when they expire. This alarm has a built-in 10-year battery which is the life of the alarm. CO is a gas that is odorless and colorless that can poison household residents. The alarm uses an electro-chemical CO sensor and a loud 85-decibel alarm is emitted when unsafe levels are detected. It sells for $49.95 and more information can be found at
