It's a CO detector. The problem with CO detectors is most of them give you very little information but I guess that is by design so people don't put themselves in harms way. Word of warning here, CO levels at a certain point can instantly incapacitate you. Exposure to low levels over time are equally as dangerous. It bonds to the hemoglobin in your blood and it can't carry oxygen, this can build up over time and it's not something that can easily be fixed even with immediate medical attention. You could literally be sitting in an emergency room and if you were exposed to enough CO you're going to die becsue there isn't anything they can do for you.
It's important to understand how CO detectors operate. They will go off if you exceed Xppm for 1 week, XXppm for one day, XXXppm for 1 hour or the get the hell out the house XXXXppm. If for example you have a gas stove in your house you may exceed the 24 hour limit for a very short time and it won't go off. That level is not dangerous for short period of time but is for longer period of time.
Get a CO detector that has readout so you know what is going on and you can monitor when it is rising, it should be zero.
