We covered the iPhone Carbon Monoxide Detector case here just yesterday. That is not the only gas detector iPhone accessory though. The SensePlus is a smart dock with built in smoke and gas detection sensors. These sensors can detect dangerous smoke traditional smoke alarms have difficulty sensing. When smoke is detected, the Sense+ app will start up on the iPhone to alarm you. If there is no response, your phone will call people who may be able to help you out (your home call group).
The Sense+ docking station uses ‘Photo-Electric’ smoke sensors to save your life. It can draw power from the grid or your smartphone. It has a built-in battery as well. The dock is designed for the iPhone 5 but can work for other devices. Android and Windows phones are expected to be supported in the future. This is an amazing idea that could potentially save your life. The project is currently being funded on Indiegogo.
AliveCor Heart Monitor is another awesome iPhone gadget that can save your life. As the name suggests, this product is designed to rwcord, display, and store your heart rate information. The device snaps onto your iPhone like a case and communicates with it through its app. You won’t need to pair your phone and this heart monitor. The companion app senses skin contact on the sensors and initiates the ECG recording when an acceptable connection is made. All your ECGs are accessible on AliveCor.com. AliveCor is designed for medical professionals and prescribed patients.
