First Alert releases first HomeKit-enabled smoke detector

First Alert’s Onelink alarm, released this week, is the first HomeKit-enabled smoke and carbon monoxide detector. Owners can use their iOS device to receive alerts in the event of an emergency, remotely silence false alarms or test the detector. Multiple alarms can also be synced up to sound alerts as one, and programmed to communicate what the specific danger is and where it’s located within the house. The Onelink alarm is available in a battery-only version ($110) that features a non-removable battery pack estimated to last the entire 10-year life of the alarm, or a hardwired version ($120) that adds a nightlight feature not available in the battery-only version. Both are currently available online through Lowe’s and are coming soon to Apple Stores, Amazon and other retailers. [via The Verge]
