As you are likely aware, Carbon Monoxide detection is crucial being this a toxic gas that you cannot see or smell.
According to the CDC - (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) CO is given off whenever fuel or other carbon-based materials are burned. CO usually comes from sources in or near your home that are not properly maintained or vented.
You may be exposed to unsafe levels of CO by:
Using poorly maintained or unvented heating equipment;
Improperly vented natural gas appliances like stoves or water heaters;
Running vehicles in garages or other enclosed spaces;
Using a gas stove, grill, or oven to heat the home;
house or building fires;
Clogged chimneys or blocked heating exhaust vents;
Running generators or gas-powered tools indoors or outside near windows, doors, or vents;
Cooking with a charcoal or gas grill inside the home or other enclosure;
Using a propane camp stove, heater, or light inside a tent; and
being near boat engine exhaust outlets.
With winter approaching and more furnaces running, I thought it necessary to share how easy it is to create a wireless sensor network to detect CO at home or in the workplace.
Sensorfi makes it easy to use many of these sensors without the use of wires, perfect for a commercial building, office space or home.
These sensors have a range of 0-1000 PPM and will notify you immediately on a mobile device or computer if CO is detected.
To view CO levels in real time, simply open the app or log into the online portal.
To create a wireless sensor network is as simple as placing the sensors in the areas needed. Connecting your gateway to the internet, and setting up the software. When purchasing these products there is a set up guide to assist, this process typically takes 5-10 minutes!
