House Fires Spread 600% Faster Than 40 Years Ago. This Gadget Might be the Key to Stopping Yours From Going up in Flames.

We love the newest gadgets that pop up but this one in particular could just save your life. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, house fires actually spread 600% faster today than they did 40 years prior. Can you believe that? It's true. Due to the materials we make the homes out of and our furniture, homes are at a higher risk than ever before of going up in flames. 

Introducing, Life Door. Life Door is a gadget that you attach to the hinge of your door. When the sound of a fire alarm goes off it actually triggers the gadget and it will automatically shut your door. You might think this sounds crazy. Why would shutting your door help stop a fire? There's truth behind this method. By closing a door you can do a number of things, one of them being blocking off oxygen flow to the fire and allowing you to breathe easier while you make your escape. However, for those of you who's worst nightmare is being locked in a burning room, this gadget still allows you to open the door. There is no locking involved. (Sigh of relief)  In addition to shutting doors, Life Door illuminates the room, and also sounds off a secondary alarm for the really heavy sleepers. 

For those smart-home lovers, this could be the perfect addition! When buying a home, it is important to think about the amount of safety it has. Check for working smoke alarms, exits, and even the materials it's made from. With something like Life Door, you can have a little extra peace of mind.
