    Default What is this? Fire? CO? ???

    I found this in a 1970's house, but it looks more like it came out of the 1930s, 40s, or 50s.

    It is not connected to anything.

    I suspect that the cylinder contains compressed air or chemicals which mix to create the same affect, and that activates through the horn ... but what is it for and why?

    Barry,

    That sure is like their logo - so I will guess that narrows what it is for down to "fire" (which was my first thought ... CO was a distant second as it is not far from an oil burner furnace, which was replaced sometime after 1996 as it is listed to a 1996 standard).

    I will email them the photos and see what they say it is.

    Thank you.

    (I sent them an email asking about it, I will post what they say it is.)

    Their reply was, basically, a 'non-reply' as it was less than helpful:

    Jerry,
    we sell kestrel Meters... this is not a kestrel meter.

    I refrained from replying with:
    - Duh! I know that was not a "meter".

    sounds like you had a conversation similar to mine

    me: you ordered 3 commercial structure inspections & furnished 3 addresses
    client: and?
    me: the owners number you provided for entry access says there are 4 structures that require inspection to seal this deal, we need to recalculate the fees
    client: you're right there are 4, i'd like you do all 4 for the fee quoted for 3
    i too refrained

    let the search continue...
