Users can finally find a good use for their old phones or tablets that have been collecting dust in a desk drawer.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2016
CleverLoop (https://www.cleverloop.com), an innovative smart home security company, has released a free app that turns your old or unused phone or tablet into a smart home smoke alarm. The Smokey app (http://bit.ly/2biFo24), which is available on iOS (http://apple.co/2biGJFW) and Android (http://bit.ly/2aOcqrt), makes it simple and affordable for consumers to monitor their home for smoke, in real-time when on-the-go.
Smart smoke detectors are making homes safer by giving consumers alerts when there is smoke or a fire no matter where they are. Unfortunately, smart smoke alarm systems require multiple devices or batteries to get smart capabilities, costing hundreds of dollars. Smokey by CleverLoop has created a novel, free solution that uses the built-in microphone on a used smartphone or tablet that sends an alert via SMS when an existing home smoke alarm is triggered.
“Being in the smart home security business, we are always thinking about ways to make our customers more secure and to give them peace of mind,” said CleverLoop CMO Richard Smith. “We found the most efficient and cost effective solution for smart smoke detection was to enable users to reuse their old devices with an easy to use app.”
Setting up the app is quick and easy. Users download the app on Google Play the iTunes App Store onto an old or unused device. They follow a simple tutorial, advising them to place the used device in a central location of the house where it can hear smoke alarms. Then, they simply plug in the device and connect it to wi-fi. After entering their phone number or email for notifications, they press arm and the smart detection is all set to go.
“We are very excited to be able to provide our customers and the public a better way to keep their homes and family safe,” added Smith. “As an additional bonus, users can finally find a good use for their old phones or tablets that have been collecting dust in a desk drawer.”
