We’re pleased to be carrying the brand new First Alert ONELINK wireless smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Traditionally, smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms will sound the alarm in case of danger, but only the detector that senses trouble would sound. The problem is that if the detector in the basement goes off, the resident may not hear it in the second floor bedroom.
The new ONELINK system allows all of the smoke detectors in the home to communicate with each other through a wireless link so that when one detector detects smoke or carbon monoxide, ALL of the ONELINK detectors in the home will go in to alarm so the alarm is heard everywhere. By installing at least one detector on every level and having them linked, the odds of early detection are greatly increased.
First alert has ONELINK photoelectric smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and combination smoke/CO detectors. The ONELINK line is the first line to include more than just a smoke detector, and there are models that are powered by battery only or 110/120v hardwired versions with battery backup.
