The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm is the only smoke detector that allows parents to record a personalized message in their own voice, instructing children to wake up and escape safely during an emergency. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm was developed by SignalONE Safety in response to documented research showing a familiar voice consistently awakens children from deep sleep, a circumstance in which traditional smoke alarms have proven shockingly unreliable. In addition to being the only Vocal Smoke Alarm currently available to consumers, the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm provides additional features for enhancing the safety of families prior and during a fire emergency. These unique features include: Real Life Instruction, Fire Drill Feature, Directional Alarm Speaker, Loud 85dBs Output.
A house fire is a terrifying prospect, even more so if you have children. To help set your mind at ease, KidSmart has developed a better smoke alarm that is built with children in mind. Specifically designed for the sleeping rooms of adolescents, the KidSmart 10012VSA Vocal Smoke Alarm is the only smoke detector that allows parents to record a personalized message in their own voice, instructing children to wake up and escape safely during an emergency. For example, you could record a message that announces, "Johnny wake up! This is Mom. There's a fire. Stay low and meet us by the mailbox. Johnny wake up!"

Across all age ranges, science shows that humans respond and react more rapidly to a voice that is familiar to them. The amplified, familiar voice message that you record is replayed when the device detects smoke, and your message alternates with a loud, 85-decibel temporal tone siren. Studies have shown that two out of three children sleep through traditional smoke alarms, but children wake to the sound of their parent's voice more than 96 percent of the time -- even from a deep sleep. From these numbers, it can be concluded that the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm is nearly three times as effective when compared to a traditional smoke alarm. In fact, even if children awake to the sound of traditional alarm, they are typically disoriented or frightened. This can delay a child's ability to respond and escape from the fire. And with an average of 40,000 American children killed or injured in house fires each year, every parent should use the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Alarm because a recorded, personalized message alarm can make a critical difference when a fire strikes.
You can record customizable instructions for every bedroom, so each child can receive a personalized set of escape instructions. KidSmart knows that practice is the best way to be prepared when a fire strikes. This alarm has a built-in "Fire Drill" feature that facilitates practice and tests the effectiveness of the alarm and your instructions. Other features include a high-quality, directional alarm speaker that allows you to aim your voice at your child's pillow to help ensure the wake up command and instructions are heard during an emergency.
This smoke alarm is easy to install and powered by four AAA batteries (included). As with all smoke alarms, the battery strength should be tested regularly for safety.
