It's not everyday that a person experiences an emergency that requires the use or understanding of the safety measures in one's home such as the traditional smoke detector; but if and when that emergency comes, a person would much rather have something like the Birdi Smart Air Monitor on hand. Easier to control and read than common devices, it not only detects smoke, it also reads carbon dioxide levels, connects to the internet and makes calls.
Designed by New York-based Mark Belinsky and Justin Alvey, the Birdi Smart Air Monitor is conveniently controlled by smartphones. Belinsky points out, "Indoor pollution is two to eight times more dangerous than outside pollution." By installing the Birdi Smart Air Monitor, the danger is significantly decreased.
