The battery not only powers your smoke alarm, but also turns it into a smart device. If you like the idea, let’s go on checking the following Roost smart battery.
The Roost is an innovative, easy-to-use WiFi-enabled smart battery that works with any existing smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector that uses a 9V battery. Unlike normal batteries, the smart battery features built-in micro controller and low power WiFi chip powered by lithium battery technology in order to join in your local network. When being installed in your smoke alarm, the Roost converts it into a smart smoke alarm. Its custom app can receive alerts when one of your smoke alarm activates, and it also allows you one-touch access to all important pre-programmed emergency numbers. Apart from that, the smart battery is un-rechargeable, but it lasts more than 5 years in a smoke alarm.
The team of Roost is raising fund via Kickstarter. Pledging $35 will let you own the smart battery. If you’re interested, jump to Kickstarter official site for more detailed description or check out the following demo video first.
