Would you like to have the newest, most convenient, and most reliable carbon monoxide and smoke detector on the market? Then the ONELink Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detector with Voice from First Alert, is the perfect product for you. The unit comes equipped with an actual voice that speaks the type and location of danger in your home. This will help you make the best decision possible in an emergency situation.
The ONELink feature enables you to install up to 16 carbon monoxide and/or smoke detectors inside your home. Once installed, ONELink enabled alarms will immediately begin communicating with each other. If one alarm is triggered, they will all sound the alarm. The unit is powered by two (2) AA batteries which are included with your purchase.
When testing this product I found it to be very simple to program. You literally insert the two included AA batteries and the unit will walk and talk you through the set-up process. When linking multiple ONELink enabled alarms I had to press and hold the test button while pushing the the battery drawer in. It's that easy!
Voice Alarm with Location
This is an incredible feature! With the 85 decibel alarm and voice function, it is very easy to hear from a considerable distance. The unit comes equipped with twelve (12) available programming locations; Basement, Child's Bedroom, Dining Room, Family Room, Guest Bedroom, Hallway, Kitchen, Living Room, Master Bedroom, Office, Utility Room, and No Location. The voice will provide you with danger and location information within three seconds of alarm activation. It will say, "Smoke in Kitchen," or, "Carbon Monoxide in basement." Etc...
With this feature you no longer have to worry about the difficulties of getting to your alarm to test it, you can now use your every day remote control. Yes, your TV remote will test and/or program your alarm without the problematic remote control programming process. The volume and channel buttons are the only buttons you need to use on your remote control. This works with virtually all IR remotes.
Pull-out Battery Drawer
This feature will eliminate the need of removing the alarm from the wall or ceiling. The drawer is located on the side of the unit enabling easy access when replacing low or dead batteries.
Photoelectric technology smoke alarms use a T-shaped chamber fitted with a light-emitting diode (LED) and a photocell. The LED sends a beam of light across the horizontal bar of the chamber. The photocell sits at the bottom of the vertical portion of the chamber. The photo cell will generate a current, when exposed to light. This new technology helps prevent false alarms.
This ONELink enabled alarm allows communication between all other ONELink products that can be expanded up to 16 stations. This means that once one product senses either smoke or carbon monoxide, all the units you have around your home will sound an alarm. For example; if a fire starts in your basement, normally the smoke would need to rise to your other floors in order for your alarm(s) to go off, or for you to be notified. With the ONELink enabled alarms, you are notified by all other alarms once the intial unit detects the smoke. If the basement catches fire and you're on the second floor, you'll be notified by the other alarms with a voice, "smoke in basement; evacuate."
