Smart Home Devices Keep Your Property Safe

Fire Restoration

Relied on the most stringent safety measures around your home and still suffered from fire or flood damage recently? You’re not alone! Despite taking all the necessary precautions, unexpected damage can occur. However, smart home devices are available to reduce the risk of such incidents. 

These technological marvels are designed to detect potential dangers in your home and send alerts to your smartphone via your Wi-Fi network. In this blog, we’ll feature some of the most notable smart home devices you might consider to safeguard your home and loved ones.

Smart Home Water Leak Detectors

  • These compact battery-operated devices are placed near plumbing fixtures and appliances, such as sinks, toilets, bathtubs, and water heaters.
  • You can set them up to immediately sound an alarm or alert your smartphone (or both) if a leak occurs. This allows you to act fast, whether you’re at home or away.
  • Some smart leak detectors have automatic shut-off valves that you can control remotely.
  • Install a complete flood monitoring system to connect to your smart home security system for more protection and control.

Smart Home Smoke and CO Alarms

  • These devices send an alert to your smartphone if they detect smoke or carbon monoxide (CO) or if the device has a low battery.
  • If you connect them to your smart home security system, it can send alerts to your smartphone and the fire department in an emergency.
  • Some smart smoke detectors can shut down your HVAC system if it detects smoke. This prevents smoke from spreading to other areas of the home.
  • Use them along with fire/heat detectors for the best protection against fire.

Smart Home Fire Detectors

  • Smart fire detectors send an alert to your smartphone when there’s a rapid temperature rise or the temperature reaches a fixed point.
  • You can opt for combination heat detectors that provide fixed and rate-of-rise detection.
  • They can also be connected to your central security system for better control and protection.

Smart Home Batteries

  • If you don’t want to replace regular smoke alarms with smart ones, equip them with smart batteries.
  • Smart batteries send instant smartphone updates if one of the smoke detectors goes off or when the battery is low.
  • These batteries are compatible with smoke and CO detectors, as well as fire detectors.

For optimal security, use smart batteries (L) in your smart home fire and smoke detectors (R).

Smart Home Oven Shut-Off Devices

  • Unattended cooking is the leading cause of house fires, so an automatic oven shut-off device can help prevent kitchen fires.
  • They come as oven knobs or as devices installed in a kitchen cabinet.
  • A smart oven shut-off device automatically turns off the stovetop or oven when cooking is left unattended. It uses a motion sensor that detects if you are in the kitchen. When you leave the kitchen, the device starts a timer; if you’re not back by the end of the countdown, it will shut off the oven.

Smart Home Outlets

  • These are electrical outlets that you can turn off remotely via an app on your smartphone. That helps if you’ve left home and are worried you forgot to shut off an appliance or even your lights.
  • Smart outlets can be voice-controlled if you connect them to smart devices like Google Home and Amazon Echo.
