As the population continues to rise -- along with pollution -- products such as Birdi, a connected smoke detector, become an important necessity. Birdi does more than detect smoke and carbon monoxide, it also measures air quality to ensure what people are breathing is not harmful in any way. The connected smoke detector might seem slightly familiar, but it offers a few key differences from its competitors.

The connected smoke detector works over wifi while also linking to home phones. This means that it can make an emergency call on its own. Its shining feature, however, is its ability to detect indoor air pollution, humidity and dust while recommending solutions based on what it reads throughout the day.
