According to the National Safe Kids Campaign, over 40% of residential fire-related injuries among children result from panic and irrational behavior, such as hiding under the bed or in a closet. Many adults are also confused by the sudden loud noise of an alarm. Rather than a shrill alarm, the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector lets you record a message providing instructions in case of a fire emergency.
Research has shown that children react more effectively in an emergency with a 'familiar voice' from a parent or other loved one. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector provides the means of alerting your children (whether awake or in a sound sleep) and instructing them to get to safety.
Easy to install and program, the KidSmart Photoelectric Vocal Smoke Detector comes complete with mounting hardware and AA batteries. Simply install and then program the smoke detector with a message that your child will understand (i.e. "Sarah! Wake Up! Meet me outside just like we practiced!")
The loud 85 dB personalized escape instructions help to awaken your child and calmly exit your home to get to safety in case you can not get to them. The fire drill feature on the Vocal Smoke Detector allows you to practice the steps the children should take in case they hear your message.
The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector is a must-have for households with young children or adults that may be easily confused or startled.
