Dupont’s Self-Charging Smoke Alarm

September 1, 2015

Today, most homes are pre-wired for hard-wired smoke alarms usually with a battery backup.  There are countless dwelling units however with battery-only devices that go unchecked.

In many homes the battery operated smoke alarms can also be poorly positioned when installed. Dupont’s Self-Charging Smoke Alarm addresses these problems by integrating a smoke alarm with rechargeable battery in a pass-through light bulb socket. ┬áThe self-charging smoke alarm can be installed in every room if you so choose.

The Dupont Self-Charging Smoke Alarm can also be tested by flipping the light switch twice or three times to silence the alarm and reset the device.
