This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Hydrogen sulfide is a dangerous gas that is poisonous, corrosive and extremely flammable. While it carries the distinctive foul odor of rotten eggs, a high-level of exposure can result in immediate harm or even death, so early detection at the lowest levels is essential. Our selection of monitors can offer the protection you need at home or on the job. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 11, 2018:

Because not everyone needs a dedicated hydrogen sulfide detector, we chose to include a few devices that detect all combustible gases. Clip-on models were emphasized for those who need continuous monitoring.
