Does it work for the deaf, blind or otherwise handicapped?

We're doing what we can to make sure that our system works for people with all kinds of disabilities, in ways that traditional smoke alarms never have. Curtis from Florida reached out to us early in our development and mentioned that he lives with two deaf people. He requested that we build Birdi with accessibility in mind and we responded. In addition to the visual alerts that people receive on their phones in case they can't hear the alarm, we also have a color-coded system (green for good, red for trouble), that flash from the device. Since nearly 10% of the country is color blind, we also make sure that it flashes in different patterns depending on the state of the emergency.
