the other one in the next room is on the wall, in a for foot off the floor
plug in.  one plug in, one battery.

Proper placement of a carbon monoxide (CO) detector is important. If 
you are installing only one carbon monoxide detector, the Consumer 
Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends it be located near the 
sleeping area, where it can wake you if you are asleep. Additional 
detectors on every level and in every bedroom of a home provides 
extra protection against carbon monoxide poisoning.

Homeowners should remember not to install carbon monoxide detectors 
directly above or beside fuel-burning appliances, as appliances may 
emit a small amount of carbon monoxide upon start-up. A detector 
should not be placed within fifteen feet of heating or cooking 
appliances or in or near very humid areas such as bathrooms.

When considering where to place a carbon monoxide detector, keep in 
mind that although carbon monoxide is roughly the same weight as air 
(carbon monoxide's specific gravity is 0.9657, as stated by the EPA; 
the National Resource Council lists the specific gravity of air as 
one), it may be contained in warm air coming from combustion 
appliances such as home heating equipment. If this is the case, 
carbon monoxide will rise with the warmer air.

Installation locations vary by manufacturer. Manufacturers' 
recommendations differ to a certain degree based on research 
conducted with each one's specific detector. Therefore, make sure to 
read the provided installation manual for each detector before installing.
