Smart smoke alarm for a safe house

Case Study

An important theme of the Dutch national fire prevention weeks 2018 is the placement of audible and working smoke detectors. Research shows that only 45% of the installed smoke detectors work. Batteries getting empty without being noticed is one of the most important causes of failing smoke detectors.

To ensure an audible and working smoke alarm, 50five, CUBES by KPN, Energizer, Olisto and Tikkie by ABN AMRO have joined forces, resulting in the campaign: smart safety for your smoke detector.

From now on the Nest Protect smart smoke alarm will order new batteries when they are running low. Automatically you will receive a Tikkie payment request and after accepting it the batteries are being ordered and delivered at your home. The only thing left is to change them yourself.

No more empty batteries in your smoke alarm.

When smoke or carbon monoxide is detected, 5 family members / friends or neighbors are automatically notified via SMS and e-mail. This is useful and smart when the resident is no longer able to alert the emergency services.

A great example of how smart solutions can provide a (fire) safe home.

How does it work?

And you’re done! From now on, you don’t have to do anything anymore. Except for changing the batteries when they come in. ;)
