Black and red

How's that for a more modern smoke detector? You can get this black and bold finish with a brightly colored accent in the middle. If red's not your thing, you've got plenty of other options -- blue, yellow, green, you name it.

Good as gold

Of course, no line of blinged out smoke detectors would be complete without a model in gold.

A bit more modest

There's also a gold model that comes without the crystals. You know. In case you're feeling humble.
