Even today, there are many houses all over the world where its inhabitants aren't adequately protected against fire hazards. The majority of fire alarms are not connected to centralized systems and work only when they are heard. The technology that relies on having people close by who hear the alarm and ready to react certainly is not the safest.
Human safety and the efficiency of smoke alarms can be heightened by connecting them to a unified system or network, in which they have the ability to regularly pass on information about its status. Similar to an IoT sensor hub, this smart smoke alarm functions within the new NB-IoT and LTE-M networks, which offer new opportunities. They don't require an electricity connection, nor frequently changing batteries. They can also be set up in places that have weak network coverage, and don't even require wifi or a special hub.
By combining various sensors, this life saving smoke detector is a present-day solution for safety (smoke, CO, temperature) and wellbeing (CO2, temperature, humidity). It can determine type of fire and danger level, thus minimizing false alarms as well as automatically informing the local firefighter department. Additionally it will inform you about the air quality and humidity level, thus improving your life quality. You can check the device's status, control it, receive real time notifications remotely with a help of a dedicated app (iOS and Android).
We worked together with HansaMatrix, one of the leading electronic system development and manufacturing companies in Nordic and Baltic countries, to put together this smart smoke alarm. Let us know if you'd be interested in testing it.
