Don’t Make Customers Choose Between Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detection…

Written by shift-admin

People want to feel safe in their own homes.  And when considering life safety, people seem to intuitively understand the value of smoke detection.  After all, it’s logical that in the event of a fire, you’d want to get out of your home as quickly as possible.

But the value of monitored carbon monoxide detection seems to be less obvious, possibly because this colorless, odorless threat is more difficult to understand.  All too often, you hear stories of carbon monoxide protection being left out of the life safety equation. Due to cost, some homeowners find themselves choosing monitored smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors, but not both.

Why would consumers choose to protect themselves from only one threat?  They shouldn’t have to when the lives of their loved ones are at stake.  And now with the Honeywell 5800COMBO, you can present a true life safety solution to your customers. The 5800COMBO is a professionally monitored, wireless, combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector designed to help protect people and property. Using four sensing elements, the 5800COMBO provides true multi-threat detection and reacts fast to real danger—while helping to reduce false alarms. A photo-electric chamber senses airborne smoke particulates while an electro-chemical sensor monitors the CO bi-product produced by slow smoldering fires.

Safety You Can See and Hear

The 5800COMBO provides audible, visible, and verbal (English or Spanish) alerts with clear directions and dual color LED lighting that tells consumers exactly what the condition is and what to do in case of an emergency. A smoke alarm condition illuminates red, a CO alarm condition illuminates blue, and a tri-color status LED intuitively indicates the operating mode. Low battery and end-of-life notifications help ensure detection is always in working order and a 10-year life on smoke and CO sensors provides lasting protection. The innovations in this life-saving device save time and money for you, but more importantly, keep your customers from having to compromise on only one type of life safety protection.

To help your customers understand the importance of a monitored Smoke and CO detector, share this end user material. When you lead with life safety, you’re providing your customers with the ultimate protection and peace of mind.
