I kept looking and there's a website,www.assistech.com,that has several dual purpose (smoke and monoxide) detectors. Brand name is OneLink,which I believe is a subsidiary of First Alert.
These detectors by Onelink can be set up not just to coordinate with the other detectors in one's residence/business but to give a verbal alert to what room the smoke or monoxide is being detected in.
On Assistech's website,I tested the alarms' sounds. They have different pitches, volume, and frequency than the average smoke or monoxide alarms. Much easier for me to hear.
Said alarms are probably more suited to the HOH or blind than to the deaf.
I might invest in something by Assistech if the reviews on Assistech,Amazon,and E-Bay are favorable. I believe I can hear these alarms without my hearing aids on.
I'll keep looking to see what might be available for the deaf.
There is disadvantage on First Alert product, these isn't friendly battery, it required direct from the outlet power. It would be bad news when there is outage power.
