Z-Wave Smoke Detector Overview
Smoke detectors are typically overlooked in the design and planning of a smart home, mainly because smoke detectors are so infrequently used – and so often misused. Many homeowners neglect to test their smoke alarms as frequently as they should – every six months is recommended – and, as a result, forget that smoke detectors require regular maintenance, just like any device.
Enter the Z-Wave smoke detector. With a “smart” smoke detector, one that connects wirelessly to an existing Z-Wave network, you’ll climb perilous ladders to test your smoke alarm no more, because most Z-Wave smoke detectors can be programmed to self-test automatically. Plus, if one Z-Wave smoke detector’s battery is running low, you’ll receive an alert explaining which battery is compromised, and where. You’ll be able to silence the Z-Wave smoke detector’s alarm from your smart phone or tablet, eliminating the need to climb a ladder to inspect any problems.
Z-Wave smoke detectors also work hard while you’re away from home – on vacation or at work, for example. In the event that smoke enters your home, you’ll know in seconds – even if you’re miles away – because your Z-Wave smoke detector will send an alert to your preferred smart device. The benefits of remote detection are endless: children, pets, and the elderly are protected, even if you aren’t there to watch over them. Z-Wave smoke detectors can be programmed to automatically call the fire department in the event of smoke or carbon monoxide detection – an essential timesaving step when every moment matters.
Small but powerful, Z-Wave smoke detectors keep your home and family safe and secure. Available at a range of price points and from a variety of manufacturers, Z-Wave smoke detectors ensure that your home remains smoke and carbon monoxide free – and if, heaven forbid, anything should happen, you’ll be alerted right away.
