Sleep peacefully while feeling confident that you will wake up when your T3 smoke detector is activated. The SafeAwake Fire Alarm provides essential protection for deaf and hard of hearing people, or those who might not wake up to the standard audible alert of an ordinary smoke detector. Once your T3 smoke detector is activated, the SafeAwake alerts you with bed shaker, a flashing white light and a high decibel, low frequency (500Hz) alarm. This 500Hz tone has been proven to be significantly more effective at waking those with mild to severe hearing loss when compared to the standard domestic and commercial smoke alarm audible signal which currently produces a 3000Hz signal. Two year warranty.
The SafeAwake responds to any US domesitc or commercial smoke detector manufactured after 1996 that requires the audible signal sound to emit an intermittent pattern in a standard temporal-3 (T3) audible format).
The device can be used in any domestic or commercial sleeping room equipped with standard smoke alarms within audible range with no need for any additional new fire detection equipment or hard-wiring. The product is a small 6" x 3" patented design device that is placed at a bedside nightstand or hung on a wall adjacent to the bed.
The user simply plugs into any 110-volt electrical bedside outlet and inserts the bed shaker under the mattress.
The device is equipped with a lithium-ion battery system that provides backup power in the event of an electrical power failure.
