Quality Construction

We care deeply about the quality of our products.
Our team of engineers and experts are
striving for exceptional performance and quality.
Our products are proudly built from the finest materials
and components with highest quality standards.
The solid safety is a combination of fine design
and latest technology.

Our Founders

All started by looking up to the ceiling and we
saw a common household product that everyone
has forgotten. A smoke alarm. Product that hasn't
changed at all throughout the history of smoke
alarms. We immediately loved the idea of getting
people to love their smoke alarms again. For that
mission we need to re-think the concept of the
smoke alarm. That's what we did, we revolutionised
the smoke alarm.

- Olli Nuutila & Mikko Järvenpää
