Fire and Smoke Alarm systems

Smoke Detector from PlugNProtect, LLC is a first of its kind smoke detector that communicates over the cellular network in the event of a smoke or fire emergency at a home or business. It is poised to create a new option in the smoke detector industry.

The patent-pending Direct Connect 911 Smoke Detector is the only stand-alone, photo-electronic smoke detector on the market that will alert central station emergency operators to a fire or smoke condition.  Unlike expensive home/business monitoring systems, the Direct Connect 911 Smoke Detector system protects for 20% on homeowner insurance.


"Standard smoke detectors can only emit a siren, which may be useless for people who sleep through the noise, are not at home, or are trapped inside," says Plug N Protect, LLC President David Topper. "We wanted to harness emerging cellular technologies to provide an affordable and reliable safety device for millions of homeowners and businesses nationally."

The Direct Connect 911 Smoke Detector is not connected to the user's cell phone or cell phone plan. The unit simply attaches to a ceiling or wall like a typical smoke detector and is ideal for apartments, homes and even small businesses. When smoke is detected, the unit's alarm sounds and simultaneously alerts Central Station. Local fire/rescue teams are called and additional contacts are notified by phone or email. The Direct Connect 911 Smoke Detector allows people who are present at the time of the fire to focus on escaping the building and not having worry about calling 911. It is also ideal for helping to save pets that may be home alone at the time of a fire. The unit can even indicate the location of the fire within a home or building to emergency operators.
To eliminate unnecessary calls to the fire department, a manual shut off button is included, alerting the emergency operators of the false alarm. Additionally, the user is notified when the two year batteries run low or if the unit fails a weekly self check with central station. The Direct Connect 911 Smoke Detector does not require installation; works right out of the box and contains everything you need to be up and running in minutes. The units do not rely on the premise's electricity, internet, phone system or existing security network. The Direct Connect units are also portable and can be easily relocated at any time.



There were no working smoke detectors in a Chicago (IL) home where a man was killed in a basement fire yesterday.
The fire was reported at 3:47 a.m. in the Garfield Park neighborhood of the city, according to a Chicago Tribune report (http://trib.in/135YHRf). Firefighters arrived three minutes later and found flames in the basement and on the first floor.
Firefighters located the 57-year-old victim in the basement and removed him. He died from complications of smoke inhalation and was pronounced at an area hospital. Another 51-year-old man apparently escaped through the back of the home.

How to run Android on Windows Mobile Phone

Install Android on your HTC Windows Mobile phone – Guide

Welcome to the official XDANDROID AOSP thread which is dedicated to getting Android running on our beloved HTC devices.
Phhusson: has dedicated most of his time helping users and updating kernel to run Eclair and his work for other msm7k devices. However phhusson is not alone as there are also other members working on this. You can find some of them on http://www.htc-linux.org. I've listed some of the developers i know of that currently are working on and they deserve credits and thanks. We also have to note that before this work done there was quite a substantial number of people starting working on linux for our devices. Without them we may not be where we are today. So respect and credits to everyone involved in working on linux kernel for msm devices.
I am not responsible for any damages or problems your device encounters. The build is relatively safe and shouldn't cause any problems.

OS Setup (Windows): Installing using the MBR or GPT partition style

Applies To: Windows 8.1 When installing Windows on UEFI-based PCs using Windows Setup, your hard drive partition style must be set up to support either UEFI mode or legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. For example, if you receive the error message: “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is not of the GPT partition style”, it’s because your PC is booted in UEFI mode, but your hard drive is not configured for UEFI mode. You’ve got a few options: Reboot the PC in legacy BIOS-compatibility mode. This option lets you keep the existing partition style. For more info, see Boot to UEFI Mode or Legacy BIOS mode.
Reformat the drive for UEFI by using the GPT partition style. This option lets you use the PC’s UEFI firmware features.

You can do this yourself by reformatting the drive using the instructions below, or if you need to preserve the data, use a third-party utility to convert the drive to GPT format.
Why should I convert my drive? Many PCs now include the ability to use the…

How to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications

Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) notifications occur when your computer hasn't passed the validation test. The validation test can be failed due to being sold a pirated (non-genuine) copy of XP, or because you have changed your XP product key to a software-generated key, or sometimes it just happens for no reason at all. The failed validation installs three types of notifications on your computer: one on the log in screen, one log in timer, and one balloon. It also stops updates from Microsoft and disables your ability to install IE7 and Windows Media Player 11. This solution can get rid of all three notifications, even though you will still not be able to update through Windows Update. You will not be able to download things from Microsoft that requires a valid license either. EditSteps
Delete Method 1 If you have only just installed Windows Genuine Advantage notifications, simply using the system restore function will remove the program. Then refuse to accept the WGA update next tim…
