Natural gas alarms warn of dangers your senses can’t detect
But you can’t see or hear a natural gas leak. With 4,200 fires caused every year due to residential gas leaks and a natural gas explosion occurring every two days, companies like New Cosmos USA Inc. and its DeNova Detect product lineup are critical for home safety—and DeNova Detect happens to be the only residential battery-powered wireless natural gas alarm in the U.S.
“When investing in smart home safety and clean air, a natural gas alarm should be top of mind to protect yourself and your family,” says Ron Lazarus, Chief Operating Officer at New Cosmos USA. “The aging U.S. infrastructure is particularly vulnerable to failure, as less than 1% of natural gas pipelines are replaced annually. We are using the same gas pipes as our great-grandparents. These outdated systems leave millions of people and properties at ris
What can you do to increase the IQ of your smart home?
Consumers should look at technologies that offer the most relevant and important information, especially regarding safety concerns. You should also be mindful of how this information is communicated to ensure it’s delivered to you in multiple channels for the most effective response. For example, DeNova Detect’s natural gas alarm can send alerts in a gas emergency to residents up to 11 minutes sooner than its competitors without the possibility of false alarms.
When connected to your mobile device, the alarm alerts you to a natural gas leak in a combination of six ways: voice alerts in multiple languages, app notification, the loud 85dB warning sound, a text, a phone call, and an email. These real-time alerts share the time of the gas leak, the level of gas concentration, and the exact room location, and they even offer instructions for handling the situation. As a result, New Cosmos has sold 70 million alarms worldwide due to its “superior patented sensor technology” and is considered the natural gas alarm market leader.
Consumers should also keep the design features of their smart home products in mind. Wireless capabilities can go a long way in increasing the IQ of one’s home. For starters, they eliminate the danger of cords being damaged or ripped out over time. There is no need for an outlet since today’s smart security tools offer minimal power consumption with years worth of battery life. This design allows them to be installed closer to ceilings, where natural gases accumulate first.
Your smart home IQ depends on you. If your current natural gas alarms don’t have the new technology, innovation, and communication features, you are relying on antiquated products to save your life. As the smart home market expands, smart home products like DeNova Detect emphasize the limitless benefits these technologies can offer to protect lives and property.
