I don't know if I live in a community with higher standards or if it's just because these are new "luxury" apartments, but I've never lived anywhere with so many fire safety features. In my one-bedroom unit there are 4 of the typical round ceiling-mounted smoke detectors, sprinklers in every room including the garage, a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, and whatever that is in the picture on my bedroom wall. I never paid much attention until it lit up when I turned my heater on for the first time this season.
Oh, no. Please don't set off the sprinklers.
I sat waiting...dreading. Then the light turned off, apparently satisfied there was no real danger.
What is that thing? Another smoke detector? A heat sensor? Some sort of infrared? It almost seemed to be scanning the room with it's red light.
