We put ours on the wall nearest the bed, that being where we're most at risk, asleep. If you're awake, you'd be aware of feeling drowsy in a suspicious not-expected way.

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

For something as important as this should you not be referring to the manufacturer's instructions or contacting them direct ?

It is recommended, if you are buying a single Carbon Monoxide detector, this detector should be placed next to sleeping areas, where the alarm will be loud enough to wake up every person sleeping in the premises, as you are most vulnerable when sleeping.
If you are buying more than one Carbon Monoxide Detector, you should place one next to the sleeping areas, and the others next to potential sources within the premises.
A carbon monoxide detector should be at a horizontal distance of between 1m and 3m from the potential source.
A carbon monoxide Detector should be at least 150mm from the ceiling if fitted on a wall. Apparatus located in sleeping rooms or located in rooms remote from the fuel-burning appliance should be located relatively close to the breathing zone of the occupants.
A carbon monoxide detector should also be placed close to sleeping areas particully if the risk is confined to that room, where the audible alarm is loud enough to wake up every person sleeping within the risk area.
If the carbon monoxide detector is fitted on a ceiling, it should be at least 300mm from any wall and any ceiling obstruction e.g. light fittings.

We are forever thankful we had one in the van 2 years ago when there was a problem with the fridge. The noise of it not only woke us up but also the rest of the site.
Good thing about it was it made people on the site go and buy one the next day. We also have one in the house that was fitted by British Gas, to me they are as important as a fire alarm.

You can get free standing co detectors like this one. This type should be ideal for a tent & also for use if you are staying in rented accommodation somewhere particularly abroad in countries where there is little enforcement of safety regulations.
