Lento will not only enhance the safety of your home, but you will also add a touch of originality.

Forget the boring and unattractive smoke alarms on the market — with Lento an essential everyday object such as a smoke alarm will become an original piece of design for decorating your home and keeping it safe.

Installing Lento will take only a few seconds thanks to its 3M tape and there will be no need for screws or a power drill.

The whole surface of the smoke alarm acts as a test button, so there are no tiny push buttons, but the whole external casing acts as a press switch for silencing false alarms and testing the performance.

Lento has been developed and manufactured according to the requirements and standards for smoke alarms.

Lento is lightweight and has a 5-year battery life time.

Available in a number of colors, Lento was awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2011.

7.4"W x 7.2"L x 2"H (18.8cm x 18.4cm x 5cm).

Weight: 7 oz. (200 grams).

I'm not sure what's worse, the bug or the hippo. Maybe they have a different aesthetic in Finland.
