Home / Home Automation / How Smart Smoke Detectors Work for You

 

When you think of a “smart” home, you may picture walking into your home, merely uttering a directive, like “Turn on the kitchen light”, and voila! It happens. While this kind of advanced technology is a reality in today’s world, there are also other ways that your home can operate on a smart level by allowing devices to connect with each other and create a network of connected components that improve home safety and monitoring more than each device acting on its own.

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have come a long way in the last decade. It used to be that you had to depend on every single alarm to detect any smoke or fire in the house, and if you were not in a room close to a smoke alarm, it could take too long for the problem to trigger units in other areas. Now, through advanced technology, not only do smoke and CO detectors communicate with each other, they can communicate with your smartphone and other electronics to alert you to a problem even if you are not at home.

Equipment Options

With ServiceLive Direct, you can purchase your devices through a wide selection of retailers, or from our Sears Connected Solutions Store and then have your smoke detector installation performed by a professional.

The First Alert DC10-500 One Link Wi-Fi Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector gives you maximum protection via advanced photoelectric and CO detecting technology. It features an array of functions that enhance your family’s safety and security, such as:

  • Wireless interconnection with the other wireless alarms in your home – setting off all of the alarms when just one detects an event
  • Testing of the system and silencing of false alarms via the mobile app
  • 10-year battery, eliminating annoying chirps from dying batteries
  • Voice technology that notifies you of the type of problem and where it’s occurring

ServiceLive Direct also offers Nest Protect installation. This is one of the most popular and highly rated products in the smart home safety market, and is packed with features that improve safety and function:

Gone are the days of climbing on a stool to press the silence button when dinner goes awry. Smart fire alarms and smoke and CO detectors utilize the latest technologies to give you comprehensive home protection and total control over your system.
