- Onelink Safe & Sound - Meet a builder's and your customer's new best friend. This smart home device delivers added convenience and enjoyment to every household. The Onelink Safe & Sound is the first announced smoke and CO alarm with a superior home speaker and ability to process voice commands. The device features exclusive voice and location technology to alert users to the type of danger and its location. The interconnection feature automatically activates other existing hardwired alarms in the home when an emergency is detected. In addition, the Onelink Safe & Sound has a host of features that put it in a category of its own:
- Onelink Safe & Sound with Amazon Alexa - Need Something? Just ask Alexa - built directly into the new Onelink Safe & Sound. Users can simply ask Alexa to play music, hear the news, check the weather and control other smart home devices with the Onelink Safe & Sound.
- Onelink Safe & Sound with the Google Assistant - Simply say "Hey Google," to trigger the Google Assistant that's built directly into the new Onelink Safe & Sound. Users can have their own personal Google right on their ceiling and ask it questions or tell it to do something. From controlling devices in the home to providing information about your day, the Google Assistant simplifies life and can help accomplish tasks, play music and more - all via the Onelink Safe & Sound smoke and CO alarm.
- Onelink Connect - This Wi-Fi mesh tri-band solution delivers faster, stronger, more reliable internet throughout the home. The Onelink Connect system includes three nodes which can be placed throughout the home. The nodes are in constant communication with one another via a dedicated backhaul, preventing congestion and directing maximum internet speeds to the locations where it's needed most. The resulting network blankets the home with consistent Wi-Fi coverage, enabling users and devices to get online - and stay online - faster and easier.
The BRK 10-Year hardwired smoke and CO alarms further raise the bar by incorporating 10-year battery backup technology, not only for smoke detection but also for carbon monoxide, providing builders in any of the 45 states (and counting) that require CO detectors to be installed in new residences with a significant advantage. It uses an electrochemical CO sensor - the most accurate technology available, allowing homeowners to capture and retrieve the highest CO levels recorded in their home through the peak function."BRK and First Alert are the most trusted brands in home safety*, and with these latest innovations, we're taking our rich legacy of home protection to the highest levels yet," Devine said. "Building a home with our Onelink and 10-year alarm products is the ultimate way for builders and contractors to deliver what their clients want - safety, control and peace of mind."
