MAX One makes sure you hear smoke and carbon monoxide warning alarms


Do you have multiple smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home? If not, stop reading this and go buy some. Then come back and finish reading this article. If you’ve installed several throughout your home, then good job. Your family is now protected. Or are they? Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can mean the difference between life and death, so they are obviously very important for your personal and home safety.

The MAX One is also equipped with a motion sensor and a light that flashes when its alarm has triggered and it turns into an emergency flashlight when it’s unplugged from a wall outlet. Great for your home and college dorms, the MAX One retails for $39.95 and can be found at Home Depot stores and online at
