First Alert Onelink Smart Smoke Detector Competitor

Safe Distancing

First Alert Onelink

First Alert Onelink sends alarm notification to smartphone whenever smoke or CO is detected. The 1st generation model with sealed battery comes with 10-year warranty. While the 2nd generation model with replaceable battery comes with 5-year warranty. It’s programmable to announce the alarm location. However, this smart smoke detector is more suitable for detecting slow smoldering fires since the sensor type is photoelectric.

Onelink Safe & Sound is a new 3-in-1 model with built-in Alexa voice services (smoke detection, home speaker, Alexa service). Now, you can play music or talk to this smart device just like Amazon Echo. Note that not all Alexa services are available in this model.

Where to Go From Here

Due to the international shipping costs and custom duties, it’s worth buying locally even when the price is slightly higher than overseas prices. The only 2 reasons why you should buy the recommended items here are: 1) the items are not available locally, 2) the local prices are significantly higher.
