The German government are considering plans to turn every household smoke alarm into a national disaster siren that would warn of calamities such as a nuclear attack


Do they know something we don't?

Very odd

Not sure if they do or not, but what a great idea since all homes are required to have them. Much more convenient than TV warnings, but it would bring up the question as to how they are going to signal these detectors in a persons house....will the radio be one way or two and can they monitor since there is a speaker built in?

what the...

even if there was an alarm what good is that going to do unless they start installing 10x10 bunkers under the staircase too...

and who is potentially doing the nuking to warrant one of these in every german home?

i wasn't aware we were in that state of affairs to need nuclear defense systems in homes, in germany of all places.

I assume they'd have to replace all the existing ones with a model that can receive a signal.

Maybe one of their MP's owns a smoke alarm manufacturing company.

Who and when? Surely they must have assessed the threat to be very real.

If this does go through in Germany....I think that (perhaps) it won't be too long before the USA implements this.

Yes...I am wondering too... what do TPTB already know?

One thing is for sure, it would require a CONNECTION direct into your home.

As an early warning system? what a joke, where are you going to hide? all it would achieve would be mass panicking and chaos.

This is without doubt the start of IN YOUR HOME spying.

1984.

There are several flaws. The major one is that in the case of a nuclear detonation the EMP shock wave would kill everything with a transistor junction. Smoke alarms would die. All conventional communication systems would be inoperable including both broadcast transmitters and receivers, mobile phone networks and pagers. TV. Internet. All gone. The only communications equipment that would survive is old valved ham kit.

I think the talking smoke alarms probably a good idea for a civil emergency below that of a nuclear attack. Or much cheaper ensure all householders listen to Long Wave broadcast stations as their signals travel vast distances with just a single transmitter.

A speaker can also be a microhone and vice versa......

the start? what are we communicating on right now?? or what about that black box with a screen in everyones home that talks for hours on end, or that device that allows us to call or be called.

I agree with what you mean though, 1984-ish but don't let this hype in the moment degrade your thinking capabilities, no where near the start, simply just building on it..

Havent had a tv for about 15 years


Your absolutely right but what I really meant was the start of having to answer to the speaker/camera on the wall in our homes. How long will it be before we're all woken in the mornings by a speaker on the wall shouting

"Get up, It's time to go to work"

"Have you had your fluoride today"

etc etc
