Innovative Home Systems is pleased to announce a new partnership with First Alert to offer ONELINK smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that can be integrated into INSTEON networks.
Integration is accomplished through the use of a single INSTEON Smoke Bridge module per installation. The INSTEON Smoke Bridge allows the First Alert ONELINK communication to be translated into INSTEON messages that can be used instantly to turn on path lighting or send email or text messages when paired with a compatible INSTEON automation controller.
Available INSTEON commands include Smoke Sensed, Carbon Monoxide Sensed, Low Battery, Sensor Malfunction, and All Clear.
Studies have concluded that the very presence of a functioning Smoke Alarm reduces the overall percentage of fatalities associated with fire by a staggering 50%. Although thousands of lives have already been saved by the smoke detectors currently in place, it is estimated that 12% of homes that fail to utilize alarms experience more than half of all documented fires. A more frightening statistic is that a third of all installed smoke alarms are not functioning. Many homes simply don’t have the required number of active smoke alarms needed to provide proper safety. Check out our selection of INSTEON compatible Combination Smoke and CO Alarms
Are your home’s smoke detectors over 10 years old?
Experts say smoke detectors should be replaced every 8-10 years, (carbon monoxide detectors every 5-7 years). Why not replace all your old smoke and carbon monoxide detectors with new, top quality First Alert devices and add INSTEON monitoring and control?
