What is Carbon monoxide?

It is an odorless, colorless, tasteless and highly toxic gas that is made when fuels such as wood, gasoline, charcoal and oil are burned with inadequate air. The majority of fatalities occur with heating systems, engine powered tools and charcoal grills. Carbon monoxide is harmful when inhaled because it displaces oxygen in the blood and deprives the heart, brain and other vital organs of oxygen. Large amounts of CO can overcome a person in minutes without warning—causing them to lose consciousness and suffocate.

How can you Stay Protected?

Some precautions you can take to say protected from carbon monoxide poising are as followed.

– Don’t use a charcoal grills, camp stoves, generators, gasoline or charcoal burning devices inside your basement, home, or near a window.

– Make sure to turn your car off upon entering a garage attached to your home and don’t run the vehicle in the garage even with the door open as gases can leak inside the home still.

– Avoid attempting to heat your house with an gas oven.

– Avoid burning anything in a fireplace or stove that does not have proper ventilation.

– Make sure to install a battery operated CO detector in your home. You can find certain alarm systems that will allow you to use wireless backup battery operated CO detectors that can even have a central alarm monitoring company dispatch the fire department if carbon monoxide is detected. Try to change the battery two times per year along with weekly testing of your CO detector.

– Make sure items such as heating system, water heater, gas, oil, or coal burning appliances are inspected annually.

 Honeywell 5834-EN: How to Replace the Battery?

Today we are going to teach you how to replace the battery in your Honeywell 5834-4EN wireless four button key transmitter.  Before we begin the 5834-4EN uses a CR2032 – Coin Cell 3V Lithium Alarm Battery . First turn the key fob on its back using a small fillips head. This should allow the case to snap right open. Inside you will find the battery with a sticker on it. The sticker  states it wants you to remove the battery near the gold tab. Once you locate that pop the battery out with a small flat head screw driver. Once the battery is released remove the sticker off of the old battery and place it on the new battery on the positive side. With the sticker facing up replace the new battery into the key fob housing. Now that the battery is in place it is time to replace the cover of the key fob. Starting from the front of the key transmitter there will be a hook which will grab the back end of the key fob gently lay the rest of the case back to its resting point. You will know it is place because everything will line up tightly. With the case lined up go ahead and screw the key fob back together. Now that this has been done test the buttons to see if the light on the front of the key fob transmits a light. If so, that means you have successfully replaced the battery in your Honeywell 5834-4EN wireless 4 button key transmitter.
