    This unit is small, inexpensive, and easy to install. Our gas company tested it and it works very well. The alarm could be a little louder but other than that I have to say it does the job of units costing three times as much and there is no wiring or difficult installation requirements. Just plug it in and it is working. Doesn’t get much easier than that.

    Not compliant with any current UL safety standard, March 2, 2010

    This review is from: Safety Siren Combination Gas Detector Model HS80504 (Electronics)

    I was disappointed to find that this U.S. manufacturer is actually
    selling gas alarms that don’t address current safety standards.
    Specifically, I found that the product manual does not say it is
    UL-listed for any relevant Underwriters Laboratories standards, and
    when I checked the UL product database I could not find listings for
    this product for either explosive gas (UL 1484) or carbon monoxide (UL
    2034).

    In the case of explosive gas (UL 1484), this product is not UL-listed
    though it appears to be compliant in the loose sense that it alarms at
    the standard set point of 25% LEL. While other products in this
    product line are UL-listed, this one is not, suggesting that the
    manufacturer simply doesn’t care enough to pay for the appropriate
    testing/listing for all of their products.

    In the case of carbon monoxide (UL 2034), this product is not
    UL-listed and indeed has definitely NOT been compliant with UL
    standards for over a decade. The original standard (UL 2034-1992)
    specified CO alarm set points at 100ppm(90min), 200ppm(35min), and
    400ppm(15min) and these are indeed the alarm points listed in the
    product manual (which is dated 1996). In 1998, UL updated the CO
    alarm set points to 70ppm(240min), 150ppm(50min), and 400ppm(15min).
    But the manual says quite clearly: “This detector has not been
    investigated for carbon monoxide detection below 100ppm.”

    Given the note about calibration that is also contained in the product
    manual (“CO sensor calibrated at 200ppm CO specific to avoid false
    alarms”) one gets the sense that this is a product for people who care
    about buying products that won’t wake them up with false alarms as
    opposed to people who care about safety standards of the current
    century. The similar Kidde and First Alert products are UL-listed and
    people complain about more false alarms. You pays your money and you
    takes your choice.

    After my wife bumped a burner knob on our gas range and fell asleep while the house filled with gas, I ordered this alarm overnight. I have it plugged in near the stove. It alarms in seconds if a burner is on but not lit and has never given a false alarm.
