Consumers today are more connected than ever with 83% of Americans having at least one smart device in their home.1 According to a 2022 nationwide survey commissioned by Kidde and conducted online by The Harris Poll, three in five smart device owners (60%) rely on those devices to keep their families and them safe, and 69% have peace of mind knowing that those devices will alert them in real-time when an issue arises.2 Kidde HomeSafe enabled devices provide consumers with reassurance to stay on the #SmartSideofSafe with proprietary technology that merges the convenience of smartphones and connected devices with the reliability consumers have come to expect from Kidde alarms and detectors.
The new Kidde HomeSafe enabled devices offer technologies and features to help protect the people, places and things that matter:
- Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm - detects both smoke and carbon monoxide with just one device.
- Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Indoor Air Quality Monitor - offers triple detection of smoke, carbon monoxide and indoor air quality issues, including adverse temperature, humidity levels and total volatile organic compounds.
- Water Leak + Freeze Detector - helps prevent potentially costly repairs from water damage and frozen pipes by quickly alerting homeowners of water leaks or temperature drops.
