We contacted each company, when possible, to assess how helpful its representatives are when resolving potential technical problems. Detection EfficiencyOur detection efficiency testing is for comparison purposes only and was not designed to replace industry standard safety certifications carried by each unit we reviewed. Perhaps the most important thing we learned from our testing is that smoke detectors have a limited range, which is one of the reasons modern building codes require a unit in every bedroom as well as in areas adjacent to bedrooms. To test effectiveness, we sprayed test smoke from an aerosol can directly at each device and timed how long it took the alarm to sound. We sprayed the test smoke from 5, 10 and 15 feet away. Every detector sounded within 30 seconds at the 5 foot mark. Three smart smoke alarms –Nest Protect, Halo+ and First Alert Onelink – went off at the 10 foot mark. All but one of the smoke detectors, the Nest Protect, failed to detect dangerous levels of smoke at the 15 foot mark. How Much do Smart Smoke Detectors Cost?Always weigh the costs against the benefits you might get from a smart smoke alarm. On average, you can expect most smart smoke detectors to cost around $100, though some units cost as much as $250, which can be up to 10 times more expensive than normal units. This can make replacing all of the existing smoke detectors in your home very expensive.

What to Expect from the 8 Kinds of Home Security CamerasPeople who ask, “What’s the best security camera system for home?” may not realize that the answer depends on their preferences. Knowing the different kinds of security cameras must be your first priority before purchasing one of them. Vandal proof Security CameraThe vandal proof security camera is the best security camera system for home. It cannot be tampered because it does not have exposed wires. The wires are tucked inside the camera’s covering. Its lens is covered with a thick layer of protective polycarbonate plastic or glass. The protective plastic or glass encloses the camera to prevent people from breaking it. The camera may be weatherproof so that it can be used for outdoors. Pinhole Security CameraThe pinhole security camera has a very small lens. It may be powered by batteries or a DC power supply.
