First Alert used CES 2018 to launch their latest product a 3-in-1 Smoke Alarm, Microphone and Speaker that can be connected to your choice of Google Home, Amazon Alexa or Apples Homekit.
It's quite a clever idea seeing as most people will want smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms in most of their rooms anyway, why not build a smart speaker and microphone into them.
Onelink Safe & Sound – Meet your family’s new best friend. This 3-in-1 device delivers added convenience and enjoyment to every household. The Onelink Safe & Sound is the first announced smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm with a superior home speaker and ability to process voice commands. The device features exclusive voice and location technology to alert users to the type of danger and its location. The wireless interconnection feature automatically activates other Onelink alarms in the home when an emergency is detected. In addition, the Onelink Safe & Sound has a host of features that put it in a category of its own:
Onelink Safe & Sound with Amazon Alexa – Need Something? Just ask Alexa – built directly into the new Onelink Safe & Sound. Users can simply ask Alexa to play music, hear the news, check the weather and control other smart home devices with the Onelink Safe & Sound.
Onelink Safe & Sound with the Google Assistant – Simply say “Hey Google,” to trigger the Google Assistant that’s built directly into the new Onelink Safe & Sound. Users can have their own personal Google right on their ceiling and ask it questions or tell it to do something. From controlling devices in the home to providing information about your day, the Google Assistant simplifies life and can help accomplish tasks, play music and more – all via the Onelink Safe & Sound smoke and CO alarm.
Onelink Safe & Sound with Apple HomeKit – Using the Apple Home app or Siri, simply and securely control Onelink Safe & Sound as well as other HomeKit accessories right from an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. Set up scenes, access the Onelink Safe & Sound remotely, or have things happen automatically. The Onelink Safe & Sound will also support Apple AirPlay 2 upon availability. AirPlay 2 enables multi-room audio and Siri control for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch users, all through the Apple Home app.
Onelink Connect – In keeping with its reputation for safety and reliability, First Alert enters a new category with its Wi-Fi mesh tri-band solution, which delivers faster, stronger, more reliable internet throughout the home. The Onelink Connect system includes three nodes which can be placed throughout the home. The nodes are in constant communication with one another via a dedicated backhaul, preventing congestion and directing maximum internet speeds to the locations where it’s needed most. The resulting network blankets the home with consistent Wi-Fi coverage, enabling users and devices to get online – and stay online – faster and easier.
Onelink Smoke & Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm – Experience the convenience and peace of mind of smart alerts on your phone, wireless interconnection with other compatible Onelink alarms and a customizable nightlight, all with the Onelink Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm. The sleekly designed alarm works with Apple HomeKit and works with Alexa and the Google Assistant actions, so users can choose their preferred platform to integrate the alarm in their connected home. Both hard-wired with battery back-up and battery-operated versions will be available, with easy adapter plugs to make installation a breeze.
