Description

A safety device with a quiesce component

Conventional smoke detectors are helpful in alerting people to fire danger and thus saving lives and property. One function of conventional smoke detectors is detecting a weak battery source, or other weak power source. Commonly, smoke detectors emit an intermittent high-pitched beep to alert people to the unreliability of the smoke detector and the need to replace the batteries. Alerting people to the low battery may provide only the most primitive of status reporting and indication. Most unfortunately, the beeping can be performed only while sufficient power remains in the battery. At some point in time, as the battery power continues to weaken, without refreshed batteries, or connection to an A/C power source, the smoke detector will not receive sufficient power from the batteries.
