The evolution of fire detection and safety technology is not just a luxury but a necessity. With modern homes built with materials that can burn faster than those of the past, the stakes are higher than ever. Research shows that 60% of home fires are due to human error, and 40% of people believe they are more likely to win the lottery than experience a home fire, despite fires being the most common disaster in U.S. homes.

How is fire detection technology adapting to provide better safety and peace of mind in residential settings?
