Short info

Protect your family with the Kidde Wireless Smoke Alarm.

Detailed information

When one smoke alarm is set off, it sends a wireless signal using radio frequency to other units in the house and the alarm will sound in all parts of the house.  An interconnected wireless smoke sounder is also available which will announce a voice message such as "Danger", "Fire", "Wake Up".
The 3 AA batteries used will power a unit for up to a year, although AC-connected units are also available.

Arm Alarm

A listener drew Dick's attention to a couple of Arm Alarm Sportswatches (Episode 35) on eBay.  Dick got the cheaper of the two for $1.50.

Leo has to wait ...

... until Episode 512 before Dick will let him forget that he messed up the March '06 What The Heck Is It contest (Episode 31).
