Many people have a house full of smoke alarms, one on each floor, one near each bedroom, etc. These devices were likely installed by you or your home builder many years ago. Some companies would like you to replace all of them with expensive WiFi enabled detectors, but Kidde RemoteLync Monitor does the trick without needing to replace anything.
How Kidde RemoteLync Monitor Works
The RemoteLync Monitor is an ingenious product that can be placed centrally in your home to listen for alarms in any room and then relays the information to you and/or your emergency contacts via email and text message. This small cube plugs into a wall outlet somewhere in your house and connects to your WiFi network and listens for the industry-standard alarm tones for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
The RemoteLync Monitor product includes a mobile application (iOS & Android) that guides you through the setup and configuration process. During the setup, the device asks you to push the test button on your smoke alarm and then also on your carbon monoxide alarm. These tones are industry-standard, so the RemoteLync Monitor is built to work with all different brands of UL listed detectors.
Notifications from Kidde RemoteLync
If an alarm is triggered in your house, the RemoteLync Monitor hears the tone and then sends the notifications that you’ve configured via text message and/or email. Getting text messages when a smoke alarm is triggered in your house can be invaluable if you’re not at home. Getting a notification immediately allows you to dial 911 immediately to get first responders on the scene.
Whether you’re at the grocery store, at work, or gone on vacation, the system allows notifications to be sent to multiple people, allowing you to notify everyone in your family, extended family, a house sitter, or trusted neighbors to provide peace of mind.
Affordable Self Monitoring System Provides Peace of Mind
Because it’s “self monitored” by you and/or your friends there is no monthly fee, unlike expensive monthly service options from home alarm companies. The only advantage the home alarm companies have over this product is that they will call the fire department for you. With the RemoteLync Monitor, the responsibility to call 911 lands on the recipients of the text messages.
The RemoteLync Monitor product monitors all of your smoke alarms in the house, providing a very affordable and painless way to enable remote monitoring of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Installation is painless… no wiring, no ladder, no swapping out tons of smoke detectors. At $99, it’s pretty painless on your wallet too.
Kidde RemoteLync Monitor is available at Home Depot for $99.
