Style Your Safety with First Alert {Atom Smoke & Fire Alarm Giveaway}

First Alert logo
Considering the amount of time and care that homeowners everywhere put into the decor of their houses, it doesn't surprise me that those style-conscious feelings extend to home safety products as well.

After all, when you select a baby gate to put at the bottom of the stairs, you put it there to keep your little one safe... but you also want it to match with your home furnishings as much as possible, right?

As part of a survey for a consumer education program tied to national Fire Prevention Week, First Alert (a leader in residential fire and carbon monoxide detection devices) has found that more than half of Americans would be more likely to buy new smoke alarms that offer the latest in technology in a smaller, more attractive design.

Add to that the nearly 40% that would like to have a choice of buying alarms that better blend with their home decor, and it only makes sense that First Alert recently introduced two new series of alarms that offer both visual appeal and the latest in technology: the new Atom and Maximum Protection Alarms.

Vast departures from their bulkier counterparts, First Alert's new smaller alarms are a fraction of the size of traditional alarms and feature breakthrough technology to help reduce the occurrence of nuisance alarms. Gone are the days of choosing between the bland, boring, clunky, dull, plain and unattractive fire alarms when these miniature version are able to easily blend high tech and high design! 

Deborah Hanson, director of external affairs for First Alert, said, "Today’s consumers are increasingly seeking more sophisticated, streamlined designs that complement and enhance the look and feel of their home."

Despite the desire for style, however, First Alert's survey found that safety continues to be the #1 factor when choosing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, which is why their new, modern alarms are just the right mix. Just look at the awesomeness of the new First Alert Atom alarm!

First Alert Atom Alarm

Weighing less than two ounces, the Atom alarm is available in a wood grain, stainless steel, bronze or white decorative finish. But as well as looking great, this sleek, small photoelectric smoke alarm features revolutionary micro technology with an advanced smoke entry system for fewer false alarms, and a loud, penetrating siren to reach the whole home.

The most important thing is to ensure your home is best prepared against the potential dangers of fire and carbon monoxide, whether you install a traditional alarm or a new, high-design unit... but if you have the choice, why not go for the more attractive of the two?

First Alert fire alarms

To ensure the highest level of protection from smoke and CO, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends installing smoke alarms at the top of each staircase and one in every bedroom or sleeping area.

For CO alarms, homes should have at least one CO alarm on each level, including the basement, and one in or near every bedroom or sleeping area. To put this into perspective, the average-sized U.S. home – a two-story, three bedroom house – would need a minimum of four smoke alarms and five CO alarms to comply with NFPA guidelines.

As well as offering a wide range of smoke and CO alarms, First Alert is also making it even easier to keep your home safe right now with their Style Your Safety Sweepstakes.
