Buying guide for Wi-Safe system

Updated on December 25, 2008

Smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning are both killers in the home but few actually appreciate the very real dangers they present. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas often called the silent killer. CO can prove fatal, additionally it is thought that many CO incidents remain undetected, as low level poisoning symptoms can be mistaken for flu, nausea or headaches. So it's very important to fit alarms and make sure the fitted alarms working. Young children, the elderly and people in poor health or disabled person may fail to hear the alarm and are therefore not alerted to the dangers in time. In this case, a Wi-safe alarm system maybe let you have a peace of mind.

What is Wi-safe? 'Wi' just mean wireless, the term comes from Wi-fi, while 'wi-fi' was invented by the marketing departments of wi-fi equipment manufacturers. It is, notionally, short for "wireless fidelity", on the analogy of hi-fi for "high fidelity" audio. From hi-fi to wi-fi then to wi-safe, and 'Wii', the home video game console released by Nintendo, which use its wireless controller, the Wii Remote, as a handheld pointing device and detect movement in three dimensions.

 The unique Wi-Safe system can alert you to danger in other rooms of your house.

For example, position the handset next to your bed and it will work wireless with your Wi-Safe alarms in other rooms.

When activated the handset will flash and sound an alarm, and when removed from its cradle it automatically converts into an escape torch.

Wi-Safe system may include the Warning Handset, Vibrating Pad, Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Alarms.

The Wi-Safe Warning Handset can be placed anywhere in the home, typically by a bed to ensure that the occupant wakes when potential fire, smoke, and carbon monoxide problems are detected elsewhere in the house. Alternatively you could place the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in the bedroom of a young child or elderly relative and keep the Warning Handset by your bed to provide you with an early warning to a problem.

The Wi-Safe Vibrating Pad can be placed anywhere in your home, typically under a pillow or cushion to ensure that the user wakes when potential fire, smoke and carbon monoxide problems are detected elsewhere in the house.
