LAST UPDATED October 9, 2019
SPARROW is designed to give you information about Carbon Monoxide (“CO”) levels in your environment. SPARROW is NOT a substitute for installation of fixed CO alarms in your home or business, as those alarms are necessary for your safety and may be required by law. SPARROW alone is not adequate protection from all potential CO risks. You rely on the information provided by SPARROW at your own risk. Do not IGNORE any other alarms, alerts or other information from other sources regarding CO or any other environmental conditions.
SPARROW’s audible alarm is not designed to UL2034 requirements – MAKE SURE TO TEST THE ALARM TO UNDERSTAND ITS VOLUME (LED and Buzzer Check link on My SPARROW page).
SPARROW is NOT GUARANTEED to notify you of dangerous conditions. It is a portable device with limited battery power, limited alarm volume, and it requires connectivity to your phone for some features. Additionally, SPARROW may not provide accurate readings in the presence of other gases and substances or in environments more extreme than the recommended operating environment (such as very high or very low temperatures or humidity levels). DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON SPARROW FOR ANY DECISION ABOUT YOUR SAFETY. Any concentration of CO may be hazardous depending on your circumstances – do not assume a reading below a certain concentration is safe.
For SPARROW to work properly, it MUST:
- Be continuously charged
- Be exposed to the environment
- Be within audible distance and unobstructed
- Be kept within operating temperatures below 40ºC and above -20ºC (-4ºF to 104ºF).
SPARROW will continue to monitor CO when disconnected from your phone; however, features such as TWA and Emergency Texting require the device to be connected to your phones SPARROW app.
SPARROW has been designed to fit with the Otterbox uniVERSE Case System.

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Alameda County, California. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
In either arbitration or any court proceeding, the prevailing party is entitled to recover reasonable attorneys fees and costs from the other party.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
