The Z-Wave smoke detector detects resulting fire and smoke emission reliable. In case of emergency it alarms acoustically and sends alarm signal to Z-Wave network so that all other smoke detectors in range can be alarmed. That ensures that the alert also reaches people in all floors as well as in the night while they are sleeping. Thanks to Z-Wave wireless technology you can define further actions triggered by the smart home control center in case of an alarm. To enhance safety, escape routes can be highlighted with automated lighting and unlocking or locking of shutters and doors.
Thank to its integrated 10-year battery the smoke detector can be used for legally prescribed lifecycle without replacing the main battery. The Z-Wave module‘s battery can be replaced with just a few simple steps when the device informs the control center about low battery status. Low Z-Wave module battery has no influence to the smoke sensors functionality.
This device is the first smoke sensor with Z-Wave which has the Q-label (Vds 3131) for extended quality.
Beyond these functions the Z-Wave smoke detector can be used as an independent indoor siren which can be integrated into an existing security system. Within your Z-Wave smart home network the smoke detector can be connected to other sensors such as door and window contacts or motion sensors independently from a control center. In case of an alarm the acoustic signal will be different from the signal in case of fire.
