I tried using "Nest Protect" which senses a fire and teaches fire origin and situations in cooperation with smartphones and tablets
If there are multiple fire alarms installed in the house, even if the alarm goes off, you may not know where the fire originates, but in addition to notifying the fire base with the alarm sounds, the alarm sounds "smoke "" The level of carbon monoxide is rising, "and smart fire alarms that sent notifications to smartphones and tablets to allow fire to be detected even from remote places were"Nest Protect"is. It looks pretty smart and does not spoil the appearance of the room, so I installed it in the room and tried what kind of feeling the alarm sounded.

If the sound only sounds, I can not check where smoke is getting up, but in the case of Nest Protect, it tells me that the lady's voice "smoke is rising in the living room", so it can be confirmed that the fire source is on is.
