Do you ever think about how much our world has changed in the last 100 years? Imagine that everything that we today take for granted back then was a fantasy. Or a mad dream. Because the more sides to things we discover the more responsible we are for how we treat them. And that is where we usually go wrong. For example, many people believe that they cannot live without gas. At the same time, they treat it with much less respect than they should have as it can bring a lot of trouble. Luckily, there are a plenty gadgets that can keep an eye on things to feel safer when we are at home or away.
MiJia, one of Xiaomi’s ecological chain partners, that has always surprised us with useful smart electronic bits and bobs, has come up with a gas leak detector and a smoke detector. Both devices are made with an assistance of Honeywell who is leading the way with fire and gas safety products. MiJia detectors also have CCCF certification, which all of the devices of this kind undertake before they reach your home.
MiJia Honeywell Gas Leak Detector
One of the silliest reasons why gas leak happens is that we simply forget to watch over our cooking pans. We become captivated by a TV-show or a book and do not notice that the boiling water is running out of the pan onto the cooking plate, eventually putting the fire out. But the gas continues to fill up your kitchen with that rotten egg odor. And if we strike a match or turn on the light at the time when gas accumulation is high chances are there will be an explosion. MiJia gas leak detector will do its best to turn that into a highly unlikely scenario.
What is does is monitors the kitchen for dangerous gasses and if it detects a potentially explosive amount of CO it will sound the alarm and immediately send a notification to your smartphone to tell you to open the window and turn the stove off. You can scan the kitchen for combustible gasses any time you want using the app or a button on the device. It is battery operated and does not need any wires.
MiJia Honeywell Smoke Detector
It is as essential as the previous one if you have a tendency to burn things in the kitchen. In the unfortunate even of smoke development, it will go off with a loud siren. The detector is also controllable from your Xiaomi device through an app so you can get push messages on your smartphone. Mount it on the ceiling of your kitchen and let it do its job. This fire alarm comes with a battery and its life expectancy is 5 years.
Both detectors are the home’s nose. They are very convenient because they do not require you to have special skills to install them and they can be relocated as easily. They also work well with a timer on your Xiaomi smartphone that you can use for cooking.
