Smoke could be a sign of a horrendous tragedy about to take place in a home. And yet, other times, smoke can simply mean someone is burning dinner. Alder smart smoke detectors can make the distinction. But whichever type of smoke signal is picked up by the detector; you will receive an alert on your phone, allowing you to investigate. And while fires happen more often, carbon monoxide is just as deadly if left unchecked.
The Alder alarm can also detect levels of carbon monoxide, which can quickly spread through a home. Carbon monoxide, also known as CO, has no color, odor, or taste; our senses cannot detect it. CO poisoning is dangerous and can be fatal. Common carbon monoxide causes are dryers, water heaters, furnaces, fireplaces - gas and wood burning, gas stoves and ovens, and cars in attached garages.
A leak can snowball into a full-blown flood causing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damages. A sensor can prevent damage by detecting water. The sensor includes a probe, and if the probe becomes covered in water, you will receive an alert, allowing you to curtail any water damage. The sensors should be placed around dishwashers, pipes, sinks, water heaters, and other water outlets.
Frozen pipes can lead to broken pipes, which can lead to flooding. Especially during winter, cold water can cause pipes to contract and cause weaker sections of pipes to burst. The burst happens because the pipe cannot withhold the water pressure. The Alder alarm will notify you if there is a water leak.

Some common locations for installing your flood sensor would be behind a toilet, under a sink, under a refrigerator, near a washing machine, and by your water heater.
As an early warning device, the sensor detects water as it touches the sensor's copper contacts. For freezing, it detects temperatures below 41 degrees in order to avoid frozen and bursting pipes.
Common locations for installing your detector would be hallways, basements, utility closets, near gas appliances, and rooms with a fireplace. But you'll want to place the detector near bedrooms to hear the alarm.
