June is Home Safety Month (Leviton)

A Well Lit Home is a Safe Home
Home is the place we feel most secure, long for after a busy work day, and want to share with family and friends. What many fail to realize, however, is their home can also be a hazardous place if the proper steps are not taken to help prevent household accidents such as slips and falls. Without proper illumination throughout the home, the chance for accidents increases, especially near staircases, and in basements, attics and garages.

Light the Way to Safety
According to The State of Home Safety in America™ (2004)conducted by the Home Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of unintentional home injuries and deaths, accounting for an average of 5.1 million injuries and nearly 6,000 deaths each year. Many of these incidents can be prevented with simple changes to help make the home brighter.
Jay Sherman, Director of Marketing, Residential at Leviton Manufacturing, believes that choosing the proper lighting solutions is a key element for keeping a home safe: “It’s not only important to light areas with a high potential for accidents – like staircases and attics – but it is just as essential to install the proper equipment for each area of the home, most notably motion sensors outside and in places where you’ll be carrying things.”

Illumination Tips to Remember to Help Keep Your Home Safe
Homeowners should understand that poor lighting can create a potentially hazardous living space, and consider the following tips:
  • Choose illuminated switches, since the face glows it is easier to locate the light switch in a dark room or hallway
  • Install wall switches with occupancy sensors and guide lights, which provide added safety with the lights automatically turning on when motion is detected
  • Use programmable timers as a convenient and cost-effective way to control both indoor and outdoor lighting activity
Replace standard bulbs and switches in low traffic areas – especially storage areas where items are being carried and moved – with compact fluorescent lamp holders with occupancy sensors

Ushio's Ultraline Titan MR-16 lamp

Ushio's new Ultraline Titan MR-16 lamp has been accepted to the 2007 IESNA Progress Report. In receiving this prestigious honor the IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) recognized the Ultraline™ Titan lamp as a unique and significant advancement to the art and science of lighting. 

The Ultraline™Titan lamp takes MR-16 technology one step further by introducing the longest life MR-16 on the market with life of up to 18,000 hours. Available in wattages ranging from 20 to 50 watts, the lamp employs an axial filament that is computer-aligned to attain precise 12, 24, 36 and 60 degree beam angles. Rated at more than four times the life of standard MR-16 lamps on the market, these lamps are an astute choice for those applications where frequency of lamp changes and cost of ownership are significant factors.

Smoke/CO Combination Alarms Overview

Fire and Carbon Monoxide (CO) represent two of the major threats to the health and lives of homeowners and their families. Fire and smoke are often visible, providing occupants with a warning of their presence. CO on the other hand, issues no warning signs. It is colorless, odorless and can build up very slowly over time. Often, families become sick without even knowing the cause.
FireX Advantage
FireX® smoke/CO alarms monitor both smoke and CO emissions. Homeowners can satisfy state requirments, and professional contractors can easily satisfy most building requirements for fire and CO protection with a single unit, reducing installation costs and saving time. Smart Interconnect Wiring allows the FireX 12000 to be connected to additional smoke alarms and CO alarms on a single interconnect wire, eliminating the need for additional wiring and providing whole-house protection.

Toxic CO levels can occur suddenly, or accumulate slowly over time. That's why FireX alarms utilize technology that is equally effective under both conditions. Because even a very small, slow buildup of CO can cause health problems and eventual death, FireX alarms monitor CO levels continuously, and are designed to sound an alarm whenever potentially dangerous CO conditions occur.

FireX combination smoke/CO alarms utilize our exclusive Monox® Sensor with True-Test™ Sensor Diagnostics, a next-generation electrochemical technology with advanced design and functionality. Monox Sensors with True-Test™ Sensor Diagnostics perform an automatic gas test to ensure proper operation. Other CO alarms do an electronic test, checking only the electronics - not the sensor. Other sensors can fail – leaving the homeowner unprotected.
FireX smoke/CO alarms include:
  • Improved filtering to reduce the effects of household chemicals and construction material to prolong sensor life.
  • Three-lead sensor to improve stability and reject false readings
  • Five Year limited warranty.
