In Britain this is happening and across Europe they are following suit. In North America this trend seems to be a bit more sluggish but many are saying that it will only be a matter of time before it starts to take off. This trend has been given a quick start by the present economic crisis and families are doing this in order to cope. What we will probably see is a change in what we call the family. Whereas before now society used to consider a family as consisting of primarily parents and children, now we are going to see an extension to this family of an inclusion of grandparents. The Eastern countries have been doing this for years now and now it is the turn of the Western countries.

As convenient as it sounds, smoke and carbon dioxide detectors do not last forever. It is best to replace smoke detectors every 10 years. Like most devices, the store or company should allow a return policy and issue warranty when buying smoke detectors. Limited warranties range from 2 10 years and return policies are permissible up to 90 days. Smoke detectors must indicate that it has met Underwriters Laboratories UL Standard 217 and carbon dioxide detectors must meet UL Standard 2034. UL conducts certification training on every electrical appliance. Smoke detectors can only alert you if there’s fire. The rest depends on the homeowner’s preparation and other fire prevention safety measures. Equip yourself with fire extinguishers and sprinklers, too, if necessary. Photo Electric or Optical Sensors They are triggered by smoke disturbing an existing beam of light inside the detector. When smoke is not present, the beam from a light source inside the device travels in a straight line to a detector, but when smoke particles enter, some of the light is scattered and triggers the electrical circuit that sounds the alarm.

It’s not a perfect solution, but at just $35, it’s much more affordable than a standalone smart smoke detector. If your budget is limited, it’s definitely worth a look. A similar idea comes in the form of the smart listener. Again, the idea here is that you don’t rip out your existing smoke detectors, you just install an extra piece of hardware that can listen for an alarm going off and alert your phone if it hears one, turning a traditional alarm system into a smart one. This is different from the Roost battery because the alerter simply plugs into a power outlet there’s no battery backup, however, so if the power goes out, the device won’t be able to hear the siren. The Leeo Smart Alert Nightlight, at $50, is currently the best option on the market.
