The smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms installed in the Genesis Home are the latest from BRK Electronics. The CO alarm is microprocessor-controlled and features Intelligent Sensing Technology™, which reduces the number of nonemergency or nuisance alarms. Both units come in ceiling white, allowing them to blend in nicely, and have an easy-to-change battery backup feature. Units don't have to be removed from the ceiling or wall to replace the battery.
The proliferation of smoke and CO alarms required by code prompted BRK to introduce a combination smoke and CO alarm. The combo unit can be interconnected with BRK smoke alarms with its smart interconnect system. No extra wires are required. The combo unit also saves time and money in installation as it eliminates the need for two electrical boxes.
