10 Gadgets and Apps to Keep Your Kids Safe
KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector ($39.95)
It's 3 a.m. and the kids are asleep downstairs while you snooze in the master bedroom with your spouse. Suddenly, you hear the smoke alarm and smell smoke, but the kids are separated from you and they may not know what to do. If only you could teleport downstairs, wake them up and tell them how to escape. Actually, you can do all of that except for the teleporting.
The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector allows you to record your voice telling the kids to wake up and giving them emergency instructions. When the device detects fire, it blasts your pre-recorded "wake up" message at an ear-popping 85 dB and then plays your escape instructions to help your children move to safety.
