Kidde has launched new smart devices and detection products in Canada as part of its Healthy Homes program. Connected to the Kidde app by Kidde HomeSafe™ technology, the smart detection product suite can provide instant notification of home safety threats such as smoke, carbon monoxide (CO), water leaks, frozen pipes and indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. These smart devices can also transform existing hardwired interconnected Kidde alarms into smart ones with an easy and fully integrated solution that offers whole-home detection.** Kidde is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
“According to a Maru/Blue survey commissioned by Kidde, more than one third (36%) of Canadians own a smart home device, and 64% of those owners rely on these devices to keep their family safe. We want to help Canadians invest in the right technology to ensure their home is safe and smart,” said Isis Wu, Vice President & General Manager, Residential Fire and Healthy Homes, Carrier Fire & Security. “With the launch of our HomeSafe enabled devices in Canada, we’re providing greater control, confidence and extra peace of mind when monitoring the safety inside homes.”
In addition to seamless connection with the Kidde app, the company’s smart detection product suite provides technologies and features like compatibility with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so Canadians can use voice commands to check their alarm status and connection*** to help protect the people, places and things that matter most.
The product suite includes:
- Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Indoor Air Quality Monitor – the first all-in-one smart home safety device to integrate smoke and CO detection with IAQ monitoring†, including adverse temperature, humidity levels and total volatile organic compounds.
- Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm with smart features – detects both smoke and CO with just one device.
- 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.
Kidde HomeSafe enabled devices are available at major retailers nationwide including The Home Depot, Home Hardware and Canadian Tire. For more product information, visit www.kidde.com/fire-safety/en/ca/products/homesafe-collection/.
