Thank you Leeo for sending me a device and sponsoring this post. All opinions are completely my own.
True story: One day I was dropping my daughter off at daycare. I saw thick, black smoke rising from where my home sits. As I traveled over the dirt road toward my house, I began to wonder: How would I ever know a house fire was happening while I was at work? My entire home could burn down and I’d not know it until it was too late.
Thankfully, as I drove closer to my house, I discovered it was just some neighbors burning trash in their field.
My worry wasn’t unfounded. According to the National Fire Protection Association, “U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,298,000 fires in 2014.” More than one million fires!
Knowing sooner can save time, and save devastation. Leeo tells you as soon as the alarm goes off!
LEEO Smart Alert – Saving Time, Saving Damage
Leeo Smart Alert is a fantastic device that actually sends a text message and a recording of the smoke or carbon monoxide alarm the instant it goes off. I can be sitting at my desk, hear the alarm, and call the emergency services all immediately. Just think of how much damage I can prevent this way!
Basically, you plug the Smart Alert into an outlet, in a central location. Setup is super simple. It takes minutes using your home’s Wi-Fi. It can also be used as a night-light, with 16 million colors to choose from that you can change instantly using the app!
The Leeo Smart Alert also monitors the temperature and humidity in your house. If they go above or below the levels you set, the app will send you a push notification. This is really helpful when you are traveling, so you know everything is as it should be back at home.
Honestly though, the alarm notification is exactly why everyone needs one.
How does it notify you?
The app alerts you on your phone and lets you listen to a recording of the alarm, to know which kind it is, and then you can act on that alarm.
How many do you need?
Just one Smart Alert will work with all the detectors in your house! According to the website, this is “based on the average U.S. home. Ginormous homes may need two.” So keep that in mind all you lucky mansion owners, you will need to get two!
Another great thing about the Smart Alert is that there are no monthly fees, so it is a reasonable option for those looking to try out a Smart Home device for added safety and peace of mind. It’s also great for renters because if you move, you can simply unplug the Smart Alert and set it up at your new house.
I love living in the technology age. I hope this device helps prevent awful fire damage and fire crews can reach homes faster.
