Smart meets simple in the latest innovation from Onelink by First Alert: the Wi-Fi Smoke + CO Alarm!

Aurora, Ill., November 24, 2015 - Smart meets simple in the latest innovation from Onelink by First Alert. Pairing First Alert's legacy of safety and innovation with Apple's revolutionary HomeKit technology, the new HomeKit-enabled Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm - debuting this month - sets the stage for a new era of safe, secure, easy-to-use and simple connected homes. The product is offered in both hardwire (with 10-year sealed battery back-up) and 10-year sealed battery versions to accommodate different consumer needs and building requirements.


Smart meets simple in the latest innovation from Onelink by First Alert: the Wi-Fi Smoke + CO Alarm!

The intuitive, easy to install two-in-one alarm protects against threats of smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) and conveniently notifies users on their iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) or Apple Watch. The alarm also can be easily tested or silenced using the Onelink Home app. Siri voice commands allow users to check the status of their detector and ask if an alarm was triggered. Since the Onelink Alarm is HomeKit-enabled, privacy is built in and data is always encrypted, allowing users to feel secure while benefiting from the convenience and safety of a connected home.

The revolutionary Onelink Wi-Fi Smoke + CO Alarm is the first on the market to feature a 10-year sealed lithium battery that lasts the life of the alarm. By utilizing photoelectric broad-based technology in conjunction with our patented smoke entry system, it is efficient at detecting both smoldering and fast-flaming fires, while being less prone to nuisance alarms.

Unlike other smoke and CO alarms in the connected home space, the Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Smoke + CO (hardwire) Alarm is designed to work with most existing interconnected hardwired alarms in the home, so users do not have to replace all existing functioning alarms at once. All Onelink alarms are designed to wirelessly interconnect through unique Bluetooth mesh system with other Onelink alarms in the home when an emergency is detected.

Available at Lowe's and Amazon.com, the alarm will be available on Apple.com in time for the holidays - with availability at Apple stores nationwide soon thereafter. Future Onelink products will include a Wi-Fi Environment Monitor, Safe and Thermostat - all designed to work collaboratively with the Onelink Home app.
