Functionalities

The CO Sensor alarms about abnormal levels of carbon monoxide concentration with 4 red blinks and 4 loud beeps (every 5 seconds).
Alarm is also reported to your iOS device.
The CO Sensor measures carbon monoxide concentration and reports.
If measured value differs from previously reported by at least 5ppm, accessory reports it to your iOS device.
Last 2500 measurements are stored in non-volatile memory of the accessory and can be accessed via FIBARO for HomeKit app.
The CO Sensor measures ambient temperature every 30 seconds.
If the measured temperature differs from previously reported by at least 0.5°C (0.9°F), accessory reports it to your iOS device.
Last 2500 measurements are stored in non-volatile memory of the accessory and can be accessed via FIBARO for HomeKit app.
The CO Sensor detects tampering when accessory is removed from its base and reports it to your iOS device. Tampering is indicated withone white blink and beep.
The CO Sensor measures battery level every 6 hours and reports it to your iOS device. Additionally, if battery level is below 15%, the accessory will report low level battery status to your iOS device and indicate it with one yellow blink and beep.

FAQ

Accessory

FIBARO CO Sensor is an ultra-light, compact, battery-powered carbon monoxide detector, designed to be placed on a wall. Its high sensitivity allows to detect the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas at the early stage in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled. It is produced when liquid, solid, or gas fuel is burned.
The early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can be confused with flu-like symptoms: headache, dizziness and nausea.

Breathing carbon monoxide causes these symptoms even in healthy people. It can also cause sleepiness, vision problems (including blurred vision), ringing in the ears, aching arms and legs, irregular breathing, fatigue and confusion. At very high levels, it causes loss of consciousness and death.

Unfortunately not. The device can be only battery-powered.
There are few actions to be done:

a) Make sure your accessory is powered on.
b) Make sure your accessory is close to your mobile device.
c) Make sure you use a correct setup code.
d) If you own more than one identical accessory, use the ‘Identify’ function.
e) You may need to reset the accessory if it’s not connecting, or if it’s already connected to another home.

There are few actions to be done:
a) Make sure your accessory is powered on.
b) Make sure your accessory is close to your mobile device.
c) If you just connected your accessory, wait a moment, then try again.
d) You may need to reset the accessory if it’s not connecting, or if it’s already connected to another home.
The accessory needs to be removed manually using the application interface.
It is necessary to perform the reset procedure of the accessory according to its manual.
There are two possible causes of such situation:
a) The accessory is out of range. Come closer with your mobile device and try again.
b) The battery is empty and needs replacing.
Take off the cover, remove the empty battery, insert a new one (keeping right polarity), and close the cover.
FIBARO CO Sensor may operate both as a stand-alone carbon monoxide detector and in cooperation with HomeKit technology as a part of smart home system.
The accessory should be installed on the wall, below the ceiling level and at least 30 cm (1 ft) away from the corners. Remember that recommended height of installation is dependant on the purpose of the room and height at which head typically is.
The device designed for indoor use only.
Yes. Expiration date is located on sticker on the front of the device. Replace the device before given date or if sensor error is detected.
FIBARO CO Sensor is always armed and ready to detect carbon monoxide.
Long-term presence in the room with the lower concentration of CO can be as poisonous and harmful for your health as CO in high dosage. In the case of such situation, follow the messages displayed on your phone.
