Electrical Safety First launches Alexa app

Consumer protection charity Electrical Safety First has launched a new Alexa app, to help reduce the number of electrical fires in UK homes.  

Once installed, consumers can use the voice-controlled app to discover if they have a recalled electrical item - simply by telling Alexa the item’s brand name.

Research by the charity indicates almost 270 million unregistered electrical products are still in UK homes. This means a significant proportion of the population may not know if one of their appliances is a fire risk.

“We hope that by launching the Alexa app, people will use it to make ad-hoc checks while doing chores around the house, without having to open a website,” explains Emma Drackford, Director of Communications for Electrical Safety First.  

“It’s all about removing barriers and giving our audience the tools they need to use their electrical products more safely.”
