Get reliable smoke alarms for every level of your home

You should place smoke alarms on every level of your home, including the basement, according to the National Fire Protection Association. It’s also wise to install them in every bedroom and in the hallways between bedrooms.The Kidde Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm, exclusive to The Home Depot, doubles down on monitoring for both smoke and carbon monoxide (CO). It’s compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and comes with a long-life lithium backup battery that is good for 10 years. To avoid false alarms, install it at least 10 feet from where you cook. But, if you do burn some toast, this one has a convenient Smart Hush™ feature to silence the alarm (if within pre-set hushable smoke limit). In a real emergency, all the alarms trigger at once in an interconnected circuit with voice alerts and send notifications to your phone.

Help prevent mold and poor indoor air quality

Indoor air quality has become a growing concern for long-term wellness. In fact, the EPA has found the air inside some homes and buildings can be worse than pollution outdoors. Fortunately, you can do something about it. The Kidde Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Indoor Air Quality Monitor, exclusive to The Home Depot, is an industry first for its 3-in-1 capabilities. It monitors for smoke and carbon monoxide, as well as harmful, airborne chemicals like total volatile organic compounds. To minimize mold risk, it monitors humidity and temperature levels and notifies you via the app when there are conditions conducive to mold growth.

Avoid costly water damage from leaks and frozen  pipes

Water damage can wreak serious havoc. Even a small leak can ruin floors, walls, and furniture and cause mold. The sooner you catch a trickling pipe, the better your chances for preventing bigger — and significantly more expensive — repairs down the line. The Kidde Smart Water Leak & Freeze Detector lets you stay on top of locations where issues can start unnoticed, such as sinks, toilets, and dishwashers, as well as frozen pipes that can burst from pressure. You simply place the small, Wi-Fi-enabled devices in the areas of concern, and if water or a temperature drop is detected, you’ll hear an alarm if you’re at home and get a mobile notification if you’re away, so you can act fast.
