    Zwave Plus Wireless Audio Detector for existing Smoke/CO sensors

    Greetings, has anyone tried this device and if so did it function as described? I am wanting to bring my existing first alert voice, smoke, carbon monoxide wireless interconnect system over to homeseer hs4. This seems like a good solution. Any thoughts or ideas to better receive alerts, text messages and notifications?

    I have one. Works fine. It is about 6 inches from my smoke detector near my Z-net.
    HS3 Pro Edition 3.0.0.435 (Windows Server 8.1 on ESXi box)

      What type of smoke detectors do you have? Are they zwave wired or wireless, and are any of them interconnected?

        Here's what I do...
        I have Zwave AND Alarm System alerts, in addition to the built-in wired smoke alarms (which I replaced with dual-mode sensing: Photo & Ion)

        -- One Zwave Smoke Detector per floor (or more): bedroom in-between bedrooms, locations where smoke can travel up to the next floor (stairways, open look-overs, etc), Kitchen, and Basement. Even if you have it as a 2nd unit in the same room(s) its FAR more reliable, and pretty much the same cost (even a few $ is better vs burning down your items or risking lives)

        -- Wired in a dry contact** using a Honeywell door/window wireless sensor (only some have dry contacts) into to my Honeywell/Ademco alarm system.
        **you can do this same thing using Zwave with a purchasable kit (https://www.support.getzooz.com/kb/a...oke-alarm-kit/) or make your own kit, super simple.

          Got it. Thanks a million, but what do you do for gas/propane that is if your house operates off this?
