Halo Smart Smoke Alarm
Did you know most smoke alarms can only detect either a fast moving fire or a slow moving fire? Do you know which type of fire the smoke alarms in your home can detect?

Introducing the Halo Smart Smoke Alarm. Halo positions itself as “the smoke alarm that other alarms want to be when they grow up.” Thanks to a dual-sensor, this smoke alarm can detect fast-burning and slow-burning fires, as well as carbon monoxide. In short, the Halo Smart Smoke Alarm can better identify a real threat in your home versus a false alarm.

The new home-alert system connects the device to the Internet, as well as home-automation systems. In addition, users can receive alerts and adjust settings with an iOS and Android app. It will also send alerts to mobile devices so users are aware of danger even if they are hundreds of miles away.

Halo won the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Innovation Award for their category in 2016. In addition, the product won the coveted “Parent-tested, Parent-approved” award, one of the most exclusive awards at CES.

Halo Smart Smoke Detector

Fortunately, the good news doesn’t stop there. Halo is also the first device of its kind that can also warn you of impending natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados, and wild fires. Once your location and preferences are set, should a threat become apparent, Halo broadcasts an audio message with a color coded light to differentiate the message. This is also great for homeowners who might not be able to hear the smoke alarm.

Unlike traditional smoke alarms that only emit a single tone regardless of whether there’s an actual fire or simply a dying battery, Halo is able to deliver far more information than ever before. The device that is detecting smoke will blink red and white fastest so you can quickly see where the threat is actually coming from.

The device is hardwired with battery backup with a 10 year lifespan, so the midnight low battery chirp is a thing of the past. With 7 days of battery backup, you’re protected even if the power goes out.

The Halo Smart Smoke Alarm costs $99 and the Halo Plus with weather alerts is $129. To learn more about the Halo Smart Smoke Alarm, visit the Halo Smart Labs website. You can purchase Halos at many big box retailers.
