Improving Fire Alarms to get the Attention of Children

This video news report is an excellent example demonstrating why fire alarms belong in our broken technology series.  Fire alarm signals for homes have not changed much in 25 years.  The monitoring systems that go with them have improved, but if they do not get kids up during a fire monitoring the situation won't help families when they need it.

Fire alarms in general are less than commodities these days.  They go for just a few bucks at Wal-Mart or Lowes or Home Depot and typically not considered high tech.  But this is a good example of innovation coming back around to make an important improvement on a technology.  Definitely might make someone think twice going for the best buy based on price instead of function and purpose.
