FireAngel’s new connected homes project is tapping into an increasingly connected world to revolutionise fire safety.
The ‘connected home’ is expected to be the next technological revolution. There are already an estimated 10 billion devices globally, which are connected to the internet, and this figure is set to rise to 50 billion by 2020.
But what does the delivery of services over broadband mean for safety in the home? Europe’s leading home safety supplier FireAngel has teamed up with Humberside Fire and Rescue Service to trial connected home technology, installing a number of smoke, carbon monoxide (CO) and cold alarms which feature new and enhanced remote functionality in the homes of those who are most at risk.
