Carbon Dioxide? Do you mean carbon monoxide? If not what are you doing with that much co2 that you feel it is a danger?

There are a blue million of them (carbon monoxide). You can find one a Walmart, Lowes, etc. or order one.

If you mean a CO2 meter they are more expensive and must be calibrated periodically.

CO2 must get to pretty high levels and exposure must be for pretty long for the CO2 to be a health hazzard.

If you are doing a Car running experiment in your garage for CO2 you will handheld meters are cheaper but still expensive. $200 to 300 dollars.

Detectors made to detect trace amounts in a home are going to alarm all the time in the Garage. Wouldn’t it make more sense to put the detector in the house?

Probably since they exist , it might be wise to have sensors of all types wired in such a way that there are alerts that warn across both areas ,including motion sensors on cameras inside and out . there are apps that you can know them on your phone.

Do you want the CO detector to have WiFi so it can communicate to you remotely?
There are inexpensive circuit boards that have WiFi, to which you can hook up many different types of inexpensive sensors.
Like CO, motion, infrared, light, vibration sensors.
They are called “Arduino boards”, and only cost a few bucks.

The only problem is the programming, and that can be complicated.

I have the Nest which sends alerts to my Phone. Works really well.

About a month ago I had to use a torch to solder a copper pipe. I somehow left the gas flowing without it lit. In the Garage downstairs off the side. The nest alerted me that I had an issue. Found the can was leaking gas. Now the Nest that detected the Gas was not in the general area. I have them in other areas. The nest identified which one was the Main detection though all of them alerted me.
It kept telling me the parts per until it Thought it was safe. I had opened all the windows and put fans throughout.
I was able to figure out what caused the alarm by which One started the alert.
The one in the downstairs Hallway wasn't the first to alert it was the one in the upstairs hallway. SO the Cannister was on a shelf high in the Garage the gas just seeped upstairs.
Not enough Gas to really cause a Health Issue. Very happy with the Nest and the app.

One of my neighbors installed a carbon monoxide detector in his garage. He then started his car an left the house. The alarm went off and someone called the fire department. They broke his front door in order to get inside to check for a fire.

It's probably not a good idea to put one in the garage.

We have two at our house due to having a fireplace insert and a Generac whole-house generator. They never go off because we have done our due diligence in placing and managing those devices.

I would suggest going wit one that displays the number rather than just an alarm. We had a cracked heat exchanger and new it would be a week before fixing it so we bought 3 cheap ones. One for each bedroom and one for the livingroom. One ended up going off so we shut off the furnace and aired out the house. I would have liked to know ho high the co level was rather than just an alarm.

Don't forget to store a couple of battery operated fire/CO detectors in a Faraday box as part of your preps. In a SHTF event you'll probably be using a lot more fire for heat & cooking. These are a good deal and work with AA batteries:

Carbon dioxide censor? Is that some sort of global warming thing to get rid of CO2.
