A gas monitor is synonymous with a gas detector or gas detection system. Gas monitors are used to keep track of specific toxic or hazardous gas levels in an area. Gas monitors thus monitor the gas levels. The two broad categories of gas monitors include simple gas detectors for home use, and full gas detection systems used in industrial factories and manufacturing plants. Unless otherwise stated this definition discusses the industrial application of gas monitors.
