The Kidde Worry-Free Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Combination Alarm has a voice command warning that lets you know whether the danger is from fire or carbon monoxide.

It also comes with a sealed lithium-ion battery that is good for the 10-year life of the alarm.

The Kidde Worry-Free Alarm is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: All right, tell me if you can relate to this. You’re lying in your bed in the middle of the night, you wake up because you hear this chirping sound. And you know exactly what it is, it’s the low battery indicator on either your smoke or your CO detector.

Well, you know, when polled, homeowners say that is the most annoying sound. And because of it, six out of ten homeowners will not replace the old battery with a new one, thus rendering their alarm detector, their smoke detector useless.

But, Shea, you have got a solution to this problem, don’t you?

Shea Pettaway: Yes, Kidde has a Worry-Free combination smoke, carbon monoxide alarm. It has a sealed lithium battery in it, so you don’t have to replace or worry about it within 10 years.

Jodi Marks: Wow, that is astounding. So not only are you going to be safe, but you’re not going to encounter that annoying chirp at all, too. What else is there about it?

Shea Pettaway: It has a voice alarm on it and it warns you “Danger.”

Jodi Marks: Oh, so it will actually speak to you.

Shea Pettaway: It will.

Jodi Marks: “Danger! Danger! Get out of the house.” That’s awesome. And you know, you’re supposed to replace these detectors every 10 years anyway. So when it’s done, basically the whole system is done, so you just go out and get another one.

Shea Pettaway: Worry-free.

Jodi Marks: That’s awesome. Thank you so much.

Shea Pettaway: Thank you.
