True story: In our last home, every single time I cooked, the fire alarm would go off. No, I wasn't burning our meals. I'm actually a fairly competent chef. I don't know if our smoke detector was just too sensitive or if it was downright defective, but I do know that it was incredibly annoying. I hate to say it, but my husband ended up removing that one completely because it was such a nuisance.
For me, the two most important things are home security systems and smoke alarms. Now that we're settling into our new home in Ohio, I decided that I would hunt down a more sensible, reliable solution that would keep my family safe from fire without being faulty. That's when I discovered the absolutely ingenious new smoke and fire alarm from the folks at Universal Security Instruments. The IoPhic is a smart system that actually tells the difference between true fire emergencies and false alarms.
Don't think false alarms are a real problem? Check out this informative infographic that shows just how common false alarms are:
Pretty intriguing, isn't it? Who'd have thought that false alarms were so prevalent? I sure didn't! If you're anything like me, you'd rather be alerted to a true emergency than waste your time and that of the fire department on a false alarm.
Here's some more info about the IoPhic:
According to the NFPA, smoke alarms should be installed in every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Most people don’t realize there are different types of smoke alarms. IoPhic is the ideal smoke and fire alarm for every room in the home.
I recently received an IoPhic smoke and fire alarm for my review. We placed it in our family room, which is the highest traffic area in our home. It's also located right near our kitchen. It was super easy to install, and my husband had it in place and working within minutes.
I am happy to say, we haven't heard a peep out of it. Even while I'm cooking bacon or other foods that tend to smoke if overheated, our alarm has not gone off. In our old house, it would have definitely come in handy! Overall, I am very happy with this product and I can sleep soundly knowing that it will help alert my family to any fire related emergency that may arise...Hopefully this won't ever happen, though!
