Smoke alarms are the best way to protect your family from a fire. While traditional fire alarms work well if they are properly maintained, there are new fire prevention technologies that may be able to better protect your home. Consider these new fire technologies when installing new fire alarms in your home.
- Nest Protect – the home automation company has created a smoke alarm that is connected to the Internet and can be connected with your smartphone. If there is an emergency when you are not at home, the Nest Protect will send an alarm to your phone. It will also let you know when it is time to change the batteries.
- Birdi – a Birdi smoke alarm also connects to your smart phone, and is able to detect temperature, carbon monoxide levels, humidity, and particle density in your home. Birdi will also alert your cell phone when it runs out of batteries.
