The demand for smart smoke detectors has risen owing to concerns regarding fire safety and increased adoption of smart devices. A smart smoke detector system consists of four components namely sensors, processing unit, communication system, and alarm system. The sensors monitor the air in environment and detect for smoke particles which are prone to cause hazardous situation. The information obtained by these sensors is then analyzed and checked for any mishap that might take place in a period of time. This information is sent to user’s device such as smartphone or tablet through wireless connections using communication platform such as Wi Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and Z Wave, among others. In case of fire or smoke, the alarm in the detector triggers and notifications are sent to all the connected devices.

We evaluated how easy each app is to use and tested how long it takes for notifications to arrive on your mobile device when there is an emergency. We also assessed how well each device connects to third party smart home automation systems. We contacted each company, when possible, to assess how helpful its representatives are when resolving potential technical problems. Detection EfficiencyOur detection efficiency testing is for comparison purposes only and was not designed to replace industry standard safety certifications carried by each unit we reviewed. Perhaps the most important thing we learned from our testing is that smoke detectors have a limited range, which is one of the reasons modern building codes require a unit in every bedroom as well as in areas adjacent to bedrooms. To test effectiveness, we sprayed test smoke from an aerosol can directly at each device and timed how long it took the alarm to sound. We sprayed the test smoke from 5, 10 and 15 feet away. Every detector sounded within 30 seconds at the 5 foot mark. Three smart smoke alarms –Nest Protect, Halo+ and First Alert Onelink – went off at the 10 foot mark. All but one of the smoke detectors, the Nest Protect, failed to detect dangerous levels of smoke at the 15 foot mark. How Much do Smart Smoke Detectors Cost?Always weigh the costs against the benefits you might get from a smart smoke alarm.
