"The Silent Killer".  The nickname given to Carbon Monoxide due to its ordorless and invisible characteristics, or lack there of.

Think about it.  You invest money into a quality security system installed by your security company.  You're covered if your doors or windows are compromised, if smoke starts to accumulate, if there is motion in a certain area and much more.  You can even keep an eye on your home while you're away with remote video monitoring.

GE Security's Carbon Monoxide Detector


This could all be for not if you don't install Carbon Monoxide Detectors.  This is a real issue.  It's not something that you want to neglect.

Carbon Monoxide is created by many common appliances and equipment in your home.  Those that use oil, wood, natural gas, propane, coal and more are potential sources.

In an article in Security Products, and courtesy of the Home Safety Council, the following facts were discussed:

  • According to the CDC, 450 people die and there are nearly 21,000 exposures each year.
  • Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning are similar to that of the flu--headache, dizziness, nausea and shortness of breath.
  • If your Carbon Monoxide alarm sounds, open any doors and windows that you can, and call 911 immediately.
  • And please don't rely on your smoke detector for Carbon Monoxide detection or vice versa.

So please contact your security company to have a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed today.  If you'd like One Source Security & Automation to visit for a Free Security Assessment, please click here.
