Two-ounce smoke alarm, high-tech digital barbecue fork, and a personal safety pod are some of the latest designer options for safety-conscious families who want to have a fun and safe summer. TV Consumer Reporter, Steve Filmer introduces brand new items for both inside and the home. Most items are under $100.
- Don’t leave home without the POD! The First Alert Personal Security Alarm a/k/a the Safety POD will scare away any would-be thief. The POD provides three ways of startling potential attackers: a 100-decibel alarm, vibration sensing, and, a bright LED light to help keep potential attackers, intruders or thieves at bay, giving you time to escape. Attach to any items that have a strap – camera, beach bag, luggage, purse, or hang on a doorknob for hotel room or at-home safety.
- Vision 2020 recently estimated that US homes are in need of more than 100 million smoke alarms! The NEW Atom Smoke Alarm from First Alert is smaller than a two-inch votive candle, weighs less than two ounces, has fewer nuisance alarms and is affordable innovation. It provides just as much protection as a traditional-looking alarm.
- In warm temps, everything smells, well,…worse! The new Fresh Wave Fresh Pod is designed for unobtrusive odor elimination in tight spaces. Will adhere to any clean, flat surface to provide continuous odor elimination 24/7. Perfect for camping, boating, RVs, trash cans, closets, diaper pails, and any small enclosure.
- Grilling goes high tech! The Mr. Bar-B-Q Digital BBQ Temperature Fork helps ensure that meat is cooked to the proper temperature. No more cutting into the meat to see if it’s done, this does it all for you. No more leaning down over the grill to see what color the meat it – just life out the fork and it’ll tell you.
- After dinner, save room for dessert with the Chef’n Sweet Spot Ice Cream Maker. This make-your-own ice cream disc hits stores this summer. You simply put the mix into the disc and scramble – kind of the same movement as making scrambled eggs. Highly visual!
- No one wants to spend summer indoors mopping floors from muddy footprints or pawprints! The new O-Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray Mop works great on any indoor floor surface. The microfiber pad uses millions of microscopic fibers to grab and hold dirt, dust, hair and moisture. And, the refillable bottle allows you to choose your own cleaning solution.
