Hey guys. I’m just getting my awesome Konnected system finalized and it alerted me (no pun intended) to a couple problematic items in my setup. Two of them are my 13 year-old smoke detectors that honestly look MUCH older and also, frankly, look like they really wouldn’t even work!
Anyway, I’d like to replace them with a unit that is, of course, compatible with Smartthings, is wired, has all the different types of smoke detection and carbon monoxide detection, etc. It should also have battery backup, I THINK. I say that as the previous owners of the house installed battery-driven FirstAlert units RIGHT NEXT to the wired units (these are the same people that put in the wired units). I assume there must have been some fire regulation saying detectors need to be battery driven and not wired? However, my Konnected system IS on a battery backup so I’m not even sure that’s needed, but seems it couldn’t hurt.
What products should I be looking at?
