EXTRA! COSTAR® and Quantum Guardian® brand carbon monoxide alarms and detectors contain biotechnology based sensors made in America!

Quantum manufactures all its biotechnology based carbon monoxide sensors in California (Made in the USA).  Quantum buys many of its components such as microprocessors from US companies.

Quantum CO sensor technology was tested most reliable and false alarm free by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).  These studies showed Quantum’s technology was the most reliable. This technology is in  Quantum Guardian® and COSTAR® brand alarms and detectors  as well as in the Universal Security Inc.’s Model CD9000.

Most importantly the COSTAR® protects you and your loved ones from the odorless, tasteless and invisible gas known as the “silent killer: carbon monoxide (CO).  According to articles in the New England Journal of Medicine and the journal of the American Medical Association, carbon monoxide is the leading cause of poisoning death in North America.   As reported in the New York Times a New York city doctor experienced false alarms with his plug-in CO alarm.  When the next alarm occurred the doctor assumed he had a false alarm.  Therefore the doctor unplugged the CO detector before going out to dinner with his wife.  Then when he came back he was heartbroken to find the dead bodies of their babysitter and 4 children.  The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the Gas Research Institute (GRI) studied false alarm behavior for many years.  In another study GRI found that 60 to 70 percent of those who had one false alarm will ignore the next alarm.  Do not be a statistic: buy the only false alarm free technology.

The Quantum Guardian® Model QG 100 and COSTAR® Models 9RV and 12RV-DB  protect all  areas of your home including the unconditioned space such as attics, garages, and basements.  When your power is out most all homes are not conditioned. The typical alarm you buy at a retail stores are not approved  unconditioned space, which means if your power is out your alarm is out of specification unless you have the Quantum Guardian® Model QG 100 or the COSTAR® 9RV or 12RV-DB because they are rated for conditioned and unconditioned spaces.  You should protect your home with the best available alarm technology.
