Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 - Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms may be an essential home safety device but they are certainly not known for their visual design.  Here at last is a smoke alarm that breaks with convention.  Now available in Australia for the first time, the Chick-a-Dee smoke alarm is an innovative, bird-shaped smoke detector that combines form and function in a truly unique device. 

The Australian Standards certified Chick-a-Dee smoke alarm is a great way to protect your family while also creating a unique talking point in your home.  This Dutch designed product is imported and distributed by Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarms and available for sale online for $79.95 at chick-a-dee.com.au  The Chick-a-Dee is a photoelectric smoke alarm and is currently available in white with a black and white version coming soon.

Winter a high-risk time for domestic fires

With winter coming up, the use of heaters, fires places and candles, greatly increases the risk of domestic fires.  Now more than ever, householders need to check they have sufficient working smoke alarms.  Australians now have a unique choice for protecting their family’s safety.  

Award winning design

In 2006 multi-talented Dutch designer Louise Van der Veld and the Chick-a-Dee took out the Mooi uit de brand design competition.  For the designer, a bird-shaped smoke detector was a natural choice.  Birds have always been known for their warning calls and the legendary 'canary in a coal mine' is a well-known example of birds detecting danger that might be imperceptible to humans.  Just as it did in years gone by the form of a bird once again brings real peace of mind.

Following a process of product refinement and standards certification, it went on sale in Europe in 2010.  The Chick-a-Dee won the Bloggers Choice award at the New York International Gift Fair in February 2012 and has appeared in popular print media overseas.
