Fire Alarm That Shakes You Awake Travis Stork: Each year, over 4,000 Americans die, over 25,000 are injured in fires. Having a working smoke alarm reportedly cuts the chances of dying in a fire by half. Now, this last shaky product, it gives a real life wake up call could help cut those statistics down even more. So Jim, won't you lay down on the bed? Jim Sears: Okay. Travis Stork: I'm going to give everyone a demonstration of how this shake literally could save your life. There’s a fire in the house. The alarm goes off. This senses it. Jim Sears: I can feel the bed shaking. Now, there’s a vibration in there. That would probably wake me up. Travis Stork: Is there any chance that you would sleep to that? Jim Sears: No, because it was right under my shoulders. It was giving a jittery, a shake and plus, that thing is pretty loud. Travis Stork: So, this is loud but what’s great about this is if the fire alarm happens to be in a different room, this would wake you up regardless because it senses the fire alarm, shakes your bed, has an addition alarm. Andrew Ordon: Or if you're a deep sleeper or if you're hard of hearing. Travis Stork: So, you know what? This can truly save a life, shaking in a different way. Now, Lifetone is what this is called and like I said, it pumps out noise. It pumps at, I guess at 90 decibels as well as shakes. So, this is like starting an alarm right next to your bed. It actually has a back LED display and it flashes with the word ‘fire’ and that shakiness is what gets you up, rouses you, get the family up and out of the house.
