Because so much emphasis is put on the life-saving functions of home smoke detectors, they rarely have attractive designs. However, the attention to design is what makes the Berri Chick-a-Dee Smoke Detector so refreshing as a fixture in the home.

From a first look, most people probably would not be able to guess that this bird-shaped piece of decor doubles as a smoke alarm for the home.

The Berri Chick-a-Dee Smoke Detector was designed by Louise Va Der Veld and quickly sold out across Europe. The popularity of the home smoke detector has been so widespread, it's now met all the Canadian safety standards so that the design can be sold through retailers like the Advice From a Caterpillar shop in Toronto.
