I’ve been slowly getting my SmartThings setup going at home [up to around 50 connected devices now] and there are two gaps left that I would like to fill:
I have 3 existing smoke alarms, I’d like to get alerts when they go off. I found this thread [SmartThings in Canada -- integration with hardwired smoke alarm/sensor] discussing adding a relay, but I’m wondering if there are any standard Smart Smoke + CO Alarms I can add to the mix that are also hardwired. I know that if one of my non-smart alarms goes off, they all go off, so I’m assuming if I just add one smart smoke + co alarm, that i’ll also get a trigger no matter where it started [can anyone confirm this?].
For those of us with Sump Pumps, how do you monitor them? I have a water sensor sitting on top of it so if it fails for a really long time I’ll find out, but ideally I’d like to find out even sooner. I was thinking of attaching one to the interior of the sump pump but it gets pretty wet in there [humid] and I suspect the leak sensor would trigger false alarms fairly often. I’m going to experiment, but I suspect this is a solved problem?
