Onelink by First Alert Brings New Products to CES 2019

Onelink by First Alert brings new connected home offerings that feature easy integration with each other and unparalleled functionality. The Onelink by First Alert portfolio of products is helping people connect to what matters at the most at CES 2019.

The Onelink Safe & Sound keeps getting better with expanded features like Alexa Calling and Messaging, and soon, Apple Airplay 2 capabilities. First Alert will be previewing a new model, which has exclusive Wi-Fi mesh technology built into the alarm, delivering expanded and stronger Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the home while eliminating the need for additional devices.

The Onelink Safe & Sound also has a superior home speaker and built-in virtual assistant. The device is specifically designed for ceiling installation for a great sound experience via the natural acoustic backdrop, filling the room with immersive sound. Users can simply ask the alarm’s virtual assistant to play music, hear the news, check the weather and control other smart home devices.

The Onelink Safe & Sound is available with either Amazon Alexa or Google assistant built in – and is compatible with Apple HomeKit.

The Onelink Surround Wi-Fi System delivers faster, stronger, more reliable Wi-Fi throughout the home. The system places a premium on security by creating a closed, private network to help detect and prevent cyber-threat and hacks. The technology scans every outbound connection from the network to analyze URLs and IP addresses to detect malicious traffic and infected machines.

The system also gives the user greater control over their Wi-Fi network usage. With one tap of the Onelink Home app, they can pause the internet, filter content or set rules such as time limits and bedtime. With an emergency override feature, it will also send emergency notices to screens connected to the home’s network.

The Onelink Surround Wi-Fi System includes two ceiling-mount Onelink Safe & Sound alarm units that are hardwired and one base node which should be connected to the home’s router. It is also offered as a stand-alone system, with multiple nodes and both tri- and dual-band options to suit the needs of any tech consumer.

The Onelink Bell doorbell system brings homeowners even more control over monitoring their house. With premium features like 1080 HD live video, motion detection alerts at home or away, two-way audio and more, this new smart doorbell solution offers an added level of security outside the home.

Onelink Bell wirelessly connects with other Onelink devices in the home. The Onelink Bell is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Onelink Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm is the ideal supplemental alarm for homes that already rely on the Alexa or Google Assistant-enabled Onelink Safe & Sound for both entertainment and safety. This intuitive, easy-to-install, two-in-one alarm protects against the threats of smoke and CO.

If smoke or CO is detected in the home, the alarm will notify users via exclusive voice and location technology. In the event of a smoke or CO emergency detected in the home, the alarm will also send an alert to the user’s smartphone.

Onelink Brings Connected Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors to HomeKit

Onelink smoke and CO alarmWhen Apple announced the launch of HomeKit, its platform for the connected home, hopes began running high that HomeKit would become the one platform to “rule them all” in the Internet of Things space. And while the rollout of HomeKit has progressed somewhat slowly, more companies have begun releasing products specifically made for HomeKit. One such company is First Alert, who recently announced the release of its Onelink line of products, kicking off with a connected smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detector.

The intuitive, easy to install two-in-one alarm protects against threats of smoke and CO by sending notifications to users on their iOS devices or Apple Watches. The alarm can also 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, ensuring that users’ privacy is protected at all times

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

The Onelink system 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, and can do so over a period of time. All Onelink alarms are designed to wirelessly interconnect through a Bluetooth mesh system with other Onelink alarms in the home when an emergency is detected.

The Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Smoke + CO Alarm is currently available at Lowe’s and Amazon. It will also be available at Apple Stores and the Apple website in time for the holidays..
