Chick-a-Dee

We all know today marks April Fool’s Day, a day filled with laughs and silly jokes. But there is more to April 1st than being funny, the ‘Don’t be a Fool’ campaign from the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service urges Australian people to think about a much more serious issue: saving lives. Take just 2 minutes out of your busy day to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and you could possibly save your life and the life of your precious family.

There’s is no doubt that every house should be fitted with smoke alarms but most people agree that the standard white smoke alarms are not exactly an attractive sight. Luckily there is a stylish alternative available that will keep Australian homes safe without being a sore in the eye. The award-winning Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm was originally designed in The Netherlands (my home country) and it has quickly become a huge hit worldwide.

Thumb-Black-White-150x150Shaped like a little bird the Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm ($79.95) is a piece of art that suits most decors. It sits quietly attached to your ceiling (no wiring required) and will most certainly put a smile on the faces of those looking that way. Imagine how gorgeous it would like in a kids bedroom or nursery? You can sleep peacefully knowing that the Chick-a-Dee Smoke Detector will keep an eye out and raise alarm in the event of fire.

Thumb-lifestyle-1-150x150At the smallest threat this designer birdy will call chick-a-dee-dee, and in more serious circumstances the call becomes a loud dee-dee-dee sound. The Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm complies with the Australian Standard for smoke alarms (AS3786 – 1993) and is certified through Activfire. A control light flashes once a minute so you can rest assured the unit is in fine working order or you can press the test button for a quick check. If the battery is (nearly) empty you will be alerted so you can replace the battery.
