Another alternative is to get the nest protect and use their IFTTT channel/service to trigger smartthings events. This is simple and straightforward, but does require that the Wi-Fi be working and then maybe a small lag.
I bought one of these because it was cheap. (The Nest looks so much nicer, but I didn’t want to spend the money at the time.) Functionally it is fine. The battery is now at 93% after a little over 3 months.
When buying Z wave devices, always make sure that it operates on exactly the same frequency as your hub, or they will not be able to talk to each other. The frequency cannot be changed after the time of manufacture, so you have to make sure you’re getting the right one.
I have asked First alert Europe tech support. THis is what they said :
The First Alert SCO5 Combination alarm with WiFi connectivity is not officially available in the European Market. We hope to have this alarm and the Onelink products released sometime this year or early 2020.
To my knowledge, we have not tried compatibility of this product with different branded products. That being said, following a research online, I came across Samsung website that features First Alert SCO5 alarm unit. The following link might be of interest to you.
At the moment, I am unable to confirm the successful pairing of the same with Samsung products.
Can anyone confirm that AEotec and Fibaro smoke detectors work directly with the Smartthings hub, ie without the need to purchase any other pieces of equipement (suvh as a fibaro / aeotec base station or hub…)?
Fibaro smoke detectors works direclty with ST hub. So no need to buy Fibaro’s own gateway or anything else. Aeotec smoke sensors I do not have but sirens I have and they work as well directly with ST hub. I’m guessing it’s same thing with smoke detectors.
