Living in fear that your home will burn to a crisp is not a healthy worry.  However, if you can’t stop obsessing about the possibility of the dryer catching a flame and need to stay abreast of all things smoke alarm related, you’ll find some comfort with the Firetext Smoke Alarm.  Yes, genius pants, it will text you and up to 3 numbers when the 85db alarm sounds.  It’s battery operated so there is no hard wiring to worry about, though the batteries are only good for up to 3-6 months if tested weekly.

They’re each available for about $140.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
