Contrary to popular belief, kids do listen. In fact, studies show that a sleeping child will respond more quickly to their parents voice than to the buzzes and beeps typically found in smoke detectors. KidSmart applies that personal approach to their Vocal Smoke Alarm — allowing you to record a short message, specific to your family. The detector plays the message in case of fire, as well as a traditional alarm for good measure. A built in light also activates to show safe passage.
Obviously, anything that can add even a few seconds of reaction time in case of fire is a great idea, and no home should be without this critical piece of electronic insurance. Available now for $79.00, requires batteries.
