Prevent Carbon monoxide poisoning from generator fumes and
detect fire smoke quickly, protect your loved ones with the Kidde
KN-COSM-XTR-B Carbon Monoxide/ Smoke / Fire detector intelligent Alarm.
The Kidde KN-COSM-XTR-B Nighthawk™ Intelligent Alarm offers you and
your family protection from fire and carbon monoxide. The intelligent
combination alarm uses breakthrough technology to offer a fast response
to real fires, including smoldering and fast-flaming, as well as protect
you and your family from carbon monoxide. Voice warning alerts you to
the type of danger present. When either sensor notices a potential
hazard, it will communicate with the other. Depending on what is
detected, the alarm will adjust its smoke sensitivity in order to better
discriminate between a real hazard and a false one.
The Intelligent Alarm combines the detection capabilities of an
ionization smoke sensor with that of an electrochemical CO sensor. When
either sensor notices a potential hazard, it will communicate with the
other. Since carbon monoxide is present in all fires, having both
detection chambers work together increases the alarm’s ability to
discriminate between a true fire hazard and a nuisance alarm, such as
shower steam. This constant communication enhances the alarm’s overall
performance in all fires, and significantly reduces the potential for a
nuisance alarm. Surveys show that nuisance alarms remain the top reason
consumers disable their smoke alarms; 28% of consumers have had a
nuisance alarm due to cooking or shower steam in the last year.
