Thank you Onelink by First Alert for sponsoring this post. Add smart protection to your home with the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
I can’t be the only one that continuously panics about what’s happening at home while I’m away, or even a few floors away. I also can’t be the only one that rips out fire alarms when they won’t stop chirping… as bad as that is. I’ve never been so excited to get the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm and get it installed immediately!
Although we do have security cameras installed in our home to keep an eye on things, they don’t always catch a safety concern before it’s too late. That’s why the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm is the perfect tool to keep my fears at bay while I’m gone.
Alerts on Your Phone
If something is amiss in your home, you’ll get a notification on your phone. That means, if you’re at work and your alarm detects smoke, you’ll get an alert and the option to call 911 immediately. This is such a relief to have access to! Y’all know how much I love my dogs and the fear of something happening to them (and all my of prized possessions) while I’m gone is very real. I love this smart technology.
This alarm monitors both smoke and carbon monoxide levels in the house. That means I can throw away my battery-operated carbon monoxide detectors that I purchased out of panic one day when Chewy started acting strange and I thought he had carbon monoxide poisoning. (lol, I swear I’m not crazy, just cautious!)
When I tested the alarm to make sure it worked, it had two different alarm sounds for the different issues. It also has a voice alert to explain what is happening. In the middle of the night, you won’t be able to differentiate between alarm sounds when you wake up in a panic, so having a real voice alert you to what’s going on is much more helpful.
Because we got the hardwired version, the power is supplied through our home’s power supply. Just in case something happens with the overall power in the house, there is a battery backup to ensure the alarm still works no matter what.
We installed the alarm on our main floor in the living room. I was nervous it was going to be complicated to install, so I enlisted Andy to help out. As it turns out, the physical installation was incredibly easy. We went with the hardwired version, since we had a bunch of random cables sticking out after recently removing a dying smoke detector from our ceiling. I thought for sure that big mess would require some cable finagling, but really it took one cable connection and we were installed. The kit comes with an easy adapter plug for quick and easy installation so there is no need to rewire. To be honest, the iPhone app download and connection took much longer than the physical installation! (It’s best to walk through the entire installation process on the iPhone app to get it to connect best.)
If you’ve recently moved into a new house or you’ve lived somewhere for awhile and need to update your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, I highly suggest the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm for all of the smart technologies and ease of mind!
