Smoke bridgeNever again leave home without knowing that your possessions and loved ones are safe. The INSTEON Smoke Bridge monitors First Alert® ONELINK® smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. This allows you to create email and text message alerts that can be sent to you no matter where you are.

Monitor the state of your home and be alerted to smoke, fire and carbon monoxide. When paired with an INSTEON Hub, the Smoke Bridge can send alerts to your smartphone via text or email informing you that something is wrong, giving you the knowledge to act to save your home and family from potential disaster.

 

How it Works

ONELink with voice


It all starts with a First Alert ONELINK Smoke Detector. If one of these detectors senses smoke, fire or carbon monoxide, they sound an audible alarm and send out an RF signal to other ONELINK Smoke Detectors.

The signal propagates throughout your home and activates every First Alert ONELINK Smoke Detector. Before long, every alarm is sounding. But what happens if you’re not at home?

The INSTEON Smoke Bridge detects the First Alert ONELINK RF signal and sets into action. Communicating with the INSTEON Hub or any other alert-ready INSTEON central controller, the alarm is sent out as an alert to your smartphone. Simultaneously, Smoke Bridge turns on any linked lights as an additional precaution, making escape at night even safer.
