Home automation delegates the more mundane and inconvenient tasks involved in your managing your home to a computer that can learn your habits and your schedule, letting you relax and let the system do its work. It may seem high-tech (and it is), but it’s an increasingly viable option for the average homeowner.
When it comes to home automation, smoke and carbon detectors are arguably the most important smart devices on the market. The right smoke and carbon detector can save lives, and keep your family safe.
A smart home is a safe home. Whether you’re across the street or miles away, a smart smoke and carbon alarm sends a notification to your smartphone when it detects carbon or smoke in your home, so you can call the fire department before the issue worsens. Some smoke detector services can automatically reach an emergency contact person if you don’t respond. And if you do happen to be in your home when the alarm detects smoke or carbon, you’ll hear it loud and clear.
One of the biggest problems of regular smoke and carbon detectors is that it’s difficult to tell when they stop working. This is extremely dangerous—sixty percent of home fire deaths were caused by nonfunctioning smoke alarms. Smart alarms such as the Nest Protect periodically test themselves and send out low-battery alerts—or you can easily test the functionality yourself through a companion app.
