Smoke alarms are basically designed to alert and to wake up all the people in a building that a fire has broken out in. They may also be helpful in alerting people when their much loved and yummy chocolate chip cookies are burning. Either way they are designed to warn people of the danger i.e a fire and allow them, to escape hopefully without anyone losing their lives.
But this Firetext Smoke Alarm goes one step further. It features a slot for SIM card and when it observes smoke in its range it will send an SMS message for up to 4 different numbers. I assume that it’s meant as a useful way to alert the people in an emergency situation when they are away from the building where the Firetext Smoke Alarm detector is present. As opposed to rendering a more efficient way to alert our generation of a fire, who looks to have produced a knee-jerk ‘gotta check it right away!’ response to their mobiles ‘new text message’ alert.
Firetext Smoke Alarm is still powered by a standard 9V battery, which is pretty good for about 36 activations. But in the event that it will never goes off, on a single battery it should stay active for about 5 years. The Firetext Smoke Alarm is available now for about $144 i.e £89.99 plus the cost of your SIM card and your local carrier’s SMS service I presume.
When there is a fire a and a child is in a deep sleep then existing smoke detectors may not be enough to wake them.
