Dolph Pick: Honeywell Home Smoke/CO Detector

Sensing technologies have now been combined to provide us with a very innovative fire safety device. The SIXCOMBO from Honeywell is the industry’s first two-way, professionally monitored, wireless, combination smoke/heat and carbon monoxide (CO) detector. The unit uses four sensing elements to help react fast to real danger — while helping to reduce false alarms. A photoelectric chamber senses airborne smoke particles while an electrochemical sensor monitors CO levels. The device also features infrared (IR) flame sensing that measures ambient light levels and flame signature, while thermal detection monitors temperature.
