Home automation devices that are currently very popular with homeowners are smart lighting, smart thermostats, and smart appliances. However, the most important when it comes to safety and security is a smart smoke detector.
A smart smoke detector, just like a traditional smoke detector, warns you when it detects smoke or fire in your house. However, smart smoke detectors offer other useful features that can further improve safety. For example, the apps that are used to control them can send notifications and can thus alert you of fire in your home wherever you may be. They can also be synch with other smart devices in your home. You can make them work with your smart lighting, for example, so in case of fire, the light will automatically turn on and you and your family will easily find your way out.
One of the best smoke detectors in the market today is the Nest Protect. The £99 device does not compromise quality and comes with many useful features. It is equipped with multiple sensors that provide you accurate fire alerts. It also does not only detect fire and smoke but also provides other details, such as what part of the house the smoke is coming from.
