The SDCO is a Z-Wave device created to detect fire and carbon monoxide in households. It is equipped with sensors that can detect temperature, humidity, heat, and carbon monoxide levels. In case of danger, it will turn on a siren warning the residents. It is designed to be mounted on a ceiling and is both auto-calibrating and self-diagnosing for ease of use.
