Undetected fires can rip through a modern home in only a few minutes. Vivint Smart Home systems include Smoke Detectors equipped with photoelectric sensors to sound the alarm when increased heat or smoke get detected, so you’ll know about fire danger even before you smell the smoke.
Fire danger increases when power outages lead to burning candles and kerosene heaters and cooking on outdoor stoves inside. When you combine wireless Smoke Detectors with the backup battery of Vivint Smart Hub, your fire alarms keep working no matter what the weather does.
If a fire breaks out while you're at work, you'll still be the first to know. Connecting your Smoke Detector to a complete smart home system provides not only an audible fire alarm but also notifications sent to Vivint Smart Hub and the Vivint Smart Home app on your phone.
When there's nothing else to do but evacuate the family, having a connected smart home helps. Smoke alarms trigger your smart thermostat to cut off air flow to slow the spread of fire. And smart door locks will open automatically to clear your path to safety.
Turn the hard-wired smoke detectors your home came with into another layer of monitored, smart home fire protection. FireFighter hears the smoke alarms from your interconnected smoke detectors and sends notifications to your Vivint Smart Hub, your Vivint Smart Home app, and the Smart Home Monitoring SpecialistsTM who monitor your system.
Shave valuable time off emergency responses with professional security monitoring available 24/7/365. The emergency callout feature on Vivint Smart Hub opens an instant two-way-talk communication channel with Smart Home Monitoring SpecialistsTM who will assess your situation and dispatch firefighters while you evacuate your family.
Smart Home Pros will install smoke detectors and the rest of your smart home products, then link them to a central control hub, Vivint Smart Hub, to create a seamless smart home experience.
How many smoke alarms should you have in your house?
According to the National Fire Protection Association, homeowners should install multiple smoke detectors on every level of the home. They recommend placing detectors in the following areas:
- Inside every bedroom
- Outside every sleeping area
- Living rooms or family rooms
- Near stairways
- Long hallways
You can, of course, install more than the minimum for added security and peace of mind. If you’re installing smoke detectors as a part of a Vivint home security system, our professionals can help you determine the right number of smoke detectors and proper placement for your home.
What is a smart smoke detector? And how does it work?
A typical smoke detector works by detecting smoke in the air—because where there's smoke, there's fire. The smoke detector then sounds a loud alarm to alert people in the home or building.
A smart smoke detector, like those Vivint offers, expands fire protection by alerting you and first responders even before you smell the smoke, whether you’re home or away. Take a look at what sets smart Vivint smoke detectors apart from traditional fire alarms:
Photoelectric sensors for faster detection
There are two types of technology used for detecting smoke—ionization and photoelectric. Basic smoke alarms use ionization technology, which takes longer to identify smoldering fires. Alarms equipped with photoelectric sensors can sense fires faster, which gives you more time to get to safety.
Vivint smoke detectors, of course, are equipped with photoelectric sensors. When increased heat or smoke are detected, the alarm will sound, so you’ll know about fire danger before physical, visual evidence of smoke or fire.
Wireless for continued use during power outage
Wired smoke detectors are susceptible to power outages, which can render them useless if a fire starts during an outage and backup batteries are not in place. Vivint Smoke Detectors are wireless and battery operated, so they continue working even if the power in your home is down.
With Vivint smoke detectors integrated into a smart home system, you'll receive notifications on your smartphone if your smoke detector goes off—no matter where you are. The smoke detectors will also send an alert to your Vivint Smart Hub and Vivint's central monitoring center.
Smart home integration
When Vivint smoke detectors are part of a complete smart home, your smart home devices work together to help get your family out of the house as quickly as possible.
The smoke alarm triggers your smart thermostat, which will cut off air flow to slow the spread of fire. From there, your smart locks will unlock, providing an easy out so you can focus on the most important thing—getting your family to safety.
Are smart smoke detectors worth it?
Absolutely. A complete security system goes beyond just break-ins and includes a network of smoke detectors to alert you in the event of a fire, so you can get to safety as quickly as possible.
And smart home technology has improved immensely over the last decade. Today smart smoke alarms alert you of sudden rises in temperature before smoke or fire are detected. They can also send an immediate notification to your smartphone if the batteries are low.
Most important, a smart home system protects your home, even when you're not there to smell smoke or hear an alarm. Whether you're on vacation or running errands, your smart smoke detectors send notifications regarding heat, smoke and fire to your smartphone and alert first responders.
