If it isn't monitored, there's no way you'll get alerted about a possible fire - unless you have some friendly neighbors looking after your home. For your safety and security, it's best if you can upgrade your smoke detector to something smarter. Most smart smoke detectors today are industrial grade and can last a long time. Some of them even come with dedicated apps to help make monitoring a lot easier. Apart from battery life, they can also tell you exactly which area of the house is showing increased temperature. They can even connect you to your local police and firemen for a quick resolution. These extra features can mean a higher price tag. However, considering that they can augment your home security and initiate a faster response, they can be considered as valuable investments. If you are on a tight budget and investing in new devices doesn't seem feasible at the moment, your next best option is to invest in a device that can turn ordinary devices into smart ones.
