LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The introduction of smart smoke detectors as a result of technological advances and the expanding internet of things is driving the smoke detector market globally, and especially in countries within North America. According to Infiniti Research, the global residential smoke detector market is expected to grow at a rate of more than 8% until 2020.
According to the American National Fire Protection Association, three out of every five home fire deaths in the US result from fires in houses that are not equipped with smoke detectors. Smoke detectors provide an early warning that is critical for giving individuals time to get to safety and alert the fire department, and should be installed in every room and on all levels of residential buildings.

Smart smoke detectors are taking fire safety to the next level, using Wi-Fi to send notifications about emergency situations. Unlike conventional smoke detectors, smart smoke detectors can alert you to a fire in your home—even if you are not on the premises—via your smart phone. Smart smoke detectors are also becoming the more preferred choice over conventional smoke detectors because of their ability to detect more than just smoke and carbon monoxide—many of them, including the Birdi Smart Air Monitor, also monitor dust, pollen, temperature, soot, and pollution, allowing homeowners to gain a better overall picture of their home’s air quality and its impact on their health. Most smart smoke detectors, such as the Nest Protect, keep an easily accessible log of what they have detected over a specified period of time, allowing homeowners and authorities to identify patterns and become more aware of potential dangers and fire hazards within the home.
As the technology used in smoke detectors is evolving rapidly and becoming more advanced, and because of the potential security and safety threats associated with the internet of things and connected devices, vendors should rely on market intelligence to keep up to date with product and technology developments, security threats and associated solutions, and changing laws and regulations regarding smart smoke detectors and potential household hazards.
