I’m contemplating replacing 3 hard wired 240v old style smoke detectors with more intelligent ones, ideally ones that will integrate with Smartthings as this is the platform I’m using for other devices.
I started looking at Nest Protect but they’re a bit prices and don’t seem to integrate with Smartthings.
Fibaro seem to offer a reasonably priced product. However, as with all new devices I have a few questions that hopefully owners on here might be able to answer.
First off, can this be wired into existing wiring setups? I’m sure the 3 I currently have are wired to the mains.
Does the Fibaro act as a z-wave relay at all? I read somewhere that nearly all plugged in/wired z-wave devices act as relays.
If I have more than one, can they communicate with each other I.e if the ground floor one detects smoke can it trigger the others throughout the house?
If the mains electricity goes out, will it continue to run on battery?
Is the latest variation supported by Smartthings and what can be configured?
It would be really cool if it had a motion sensor built in so lights could be controlled etc. It doesn’t offer this does it? I doubt so as Finaro offer a motion sensor of there own.
Think that’s all.
