I am hearing impaired and sometimes cannot hear the smoke detector when I'm sleeping. There is no one at home to wake me up, so I'm always looking for ways to be alerted in case of fire. Because the Mindr alarm pitch is a different frequency than my smoke alarm and it's inside my bedroom, I can hear it without my hearing aids. And I like that it closes the door to keep me and my kitty safe from the spreading fire God forbid we have one. I sleep better because of it.
Makes Me Feel Better Living Alone
When I was 13 years old we had a home fire. My mom discovered the fire by opening a door and the flames jumped out at her as fire fed off the oxygen. In that type of emergency situation, I don't think someone remembers to go around their home and close all their doors. I am not even sure that is common knowledge that closing doors can help drastically slow the spread of a fire. I think my mom panicked and did what was necessary to get me out of the house. Thankfully my dad and brother were not home at the time. All I know is at 13 years old, we lost our home and this type of product would have been really helpful in saving our home, belonging and maybe in another situation, it would save a human life.
This product is genius!
A friend of mine bought a Mindr and told me I should try it. This was just a few days ago and I already have the Mindr in my hand. The Mindr is strong enough and big enough to close a door, for sure! My son helped me install it on my bedroom door. We tested it that night when the smoke alarm went off while I was cooking dinner! Worked like a charm! I am comforted to know the Mindr would buy me time in an emergency. I'll be telling my friends about Mindr, too!
A great tip from a friend
I bought Mindr as a Christmas gift for my mom for her bedroom. Installation took no longer than 5 minutes, and worked perfectly when we tested it! An inexpensive, easy solution that could be the difference in a bad scenario!
