Advancements in fire detection technology are necessary for protecting your home and those who live there. We know it is of utmost importance to feel that your family is in good hands, especially when it comes to fire and carbon monoxide monitoring.
Whether you are just thinking of getting new technology or if you are ready to make a purchase – make sure to check that your current system is still fully functioning. Here is the scoop on three technologies that you might want to consider.
- Smoke Detector & Alerting Device for Those with Hearing Loss
- Smart Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors?
- Promoting Safe Evacuations in Large Buildings
If you live with someone with hearing loss, you want to have a device that will alert them in the case of a fire. If the person is sleeping or doesn’t have their hearing aids in, it will probably be next to impossible for them to hear a smoke alarm going off.
A company in the Ottawa area (Davidson Hearing Aid Centres) has a life-changing technology that has the ability to transmit its signal to several types of receivers: visual flash or vibrating. These can be placed in different parts of the home and will use the lighting (bright LED) or vibration (bedshaker) to alert the person in the case of an emergency.
You might think this is too much, but it’s worth it. If you want something a little different from the norm, this might be your best option. The high-pitched beeping sound is nearly impossible to avoid, giving you and your family ample time to find the source and/or evacuate the area. Recently these smart detectors even have the ability to vocally provide you with detailed and accurate information on the problem that it has detected, so you can easily tell the difference between a dying battery and a possible fire. If you are away, you can even have remote access to your smart smoke/carbon monoxide detector, giving you constant peace of mind so you can enjoy your vacation!
If you are in building/property management, you might want to consider voice commands when opting for an alarm system; people often respond better to voice evacuation capabilities. You can have a variety of customized messages that best suit the needs of the people in the building and the building itself, like, “Please urgently and safely exit the building at any exit point,” or, “Please exit the building using only the front doors.” That way if the hazard is in one particular area, your residents or staff can avoid it altogether. You may want to have new speakers installed so the audio is clearn.
