Listen for smoke alarm

Activates the Sound Recognizer feature new to iOS 14 that sends notifications to your device if hears smoke alarms going off.

Use this shortcut when you or a family member is cooking and you want alerts if anything goes wrong – might even be handy for something like a microwave oven that’s not as actively paid attention to while prepping food.

Do not rely solely on this for alerting you of potential fire alarms going off in your home – always maintain environmental awareness and do not use noise cancellation while cooking.
