Sleep peacefully while feeling confident that you will wake up when your T3 smoke detector is activated. The SafeAwake Fire Alarm Aid works with existing smoke detectors to provide essential protection for deaf and hard of hearing people or those who might not wake up to the standard audible alert of an ordinary smoke detector. SafeAwake is not a smoke detector. This product is only designed to work with smoke alarms that emit a T3 alarm pattern (three beeps followed by a pause). It will not work with alarms that emit a continuous tone pattern with no pauses. If you are uncertain as to which pattern your smoke alarm uses please contact us for assistance.
Once your T3 smoke detector is activated the SafeAwake alerts you with bed shaker a flashing white light and a high decibel low frequency (520Hz) alarm. This 520Hz tone has been proven to be significantly more effective at waking those with mild to severe hearing loss when compared to the standard domestic and commercial smoke alarm audible signal which currently produces a 3000Hz signal.
