AURORA, Ill., Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to Onelink, smart protection has never been so simple. Bringing convenient connectivity and peace of mind to every household, the new Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm by First Alert, the most trusted brand in home safety*, offers innovative smart home capabilities with premium safety features and sensing technologies to enhance any home's level of smart protection. As homes become smarter and more connected, intelligent protection is a natural step.
This intuitive, easy-to-install, two-in-one alarm protects against the threats of smoke and carbon monoxide (CO). If smoke or CO is detected in the home, the alarm will notify users via exclusive voice and location technology. In the event of a smoke or CO emergency, the alarm will also send an alert to the user's smart phone. Additional smart features include wireless interconnection and compatibility with Apple HomeKit. The alarm is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The companion Onelink Home app can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store.
"The Onelink Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm brings safety and simplicity – with security – to the connected home space," said Tarsila Wey, director of marketing for First Alert. "As it is fully compatible with the Onelink Safe & Sound alarm, which includes a premium speaker and built-in virtual assistant, it allows consumers to outfit their entire homes with the appropriate level of smart protection and functionality desired for each space."
The Onelink Smoke & CO Alarm is offered in both hardwired and battery-powered options to accommodate different consumer needs and legislation requirements. The hardwired version, which takes advantage of a home's existing wiring, is also equipped with battery back-up for protection during power outages. All Onelink alarms are designed to wirelessly interconnect through a unique Bluetooth mesh system with other compatible Onelink alarms in the home, helping ensure that all residents throughout the home are alerted in the event of an emergency.
The hardwired model includes a customizable nightlight, allowing users to select the color and brightness to light the way at night for added safety and convenience. With the Onelink Home app, users can test and silence the alarm and customize the nightlight through their smart phone or tablet.
The Onelink Smoke & CO Alarm is currently available online and at retail stores nationwide. For more information, please visit https://onelink.firstalert.com/.
