1. A carbon monoxide detection assembly being configured to shut off gas appliances and open a garage door when said assembly detects carbon monoxide, said assembly comprising:
a detection unit being configured to be positioned in an enclosed area, said detection unit including a carbon monoxide sensor wherein said carbon monoxide sensor is configured to detect carbon monoxide in the enclosed area, said detection being configured to be in communication with an extrinsic electronic device, said detection unit including a housing, said housing having a vent extending therethrough wherein said vent is configured to pass air into an interior of said housing;
a processor being positioned within said housing, said processor generating an alarm sequence when said carbon monoxide sensor detects carbon monoxide, said processor being configured to be electrically coupled to a power source;
a remote unit being configured to be in electrical communication with a garage door opener, said remote unit being in communication with said detection unit, said remote unit turning the garage door opener on when said carbon monoxide sensor detects carbon monoxide;
a valve being configured to be fluidly coupled to a fuel source for a gas appliance thereby facilitating said valve to selectively restrict and allow fuel to flow to the gas appliance, said valve being in communication with said detection unit, said valve being configured to restrict the fuel from flowing to the gas appliance when said detection unit detects carbon monoxide, said valve being configured to be electrically coupled to the gas appliance;
a communication unit being configured to be in electrical communication with an emergency responder, said communication unit being in electrical communication with said detection unit wherein said communication unit is configured to alert the emergency responder that carbon monoxide has been detected in the enclosed area;
a first light emitter being coupled to said housing wherein said first light emitter is configured to emit light outwardly from said housing, said first light emitter being electrically coupled to said processor, said processor turning said first light emitter on when said processor does not generate said alarm sequence; and
a second light emitter being coupled to said housing wherein said second light emitter is configured to emit light outwardly from said housing, said second light emitter being electrically coupled to said processor, said processor turning said second light emitter on when said processor generates said alarm sequence.
