Default co2 detector?

as the title suggests, I've seen carbon monoxide plug ins, any carbon DIOXIDE detectors? maybe it's just me being paranoid, but I'm scared my co2 system will fail one night while I'm sleeping. any suggestions?

They exist. Not too expensive either. I was toying with the idea of using one for a CO2 detector for my tank but they are only accurate to 5% so they wouldn't be very good detectors... But as a safety feature they would work.

Your CO2 system isn't going to kill you.

when you say that, are you saying it because there isn't enough co2 to actually kill someone, or the fail rate is slim to none?

It would have to be a huge leak in a small area to be lethal to you. People exhaling emits more CO2 then a slow leak would from you co2 system.

Id think as longs as your not sleeping in your tank stand with a large leak you will be ok.
