Kidde Fire Safety has debuted the RemoteLync Monitor, a WiFi-enabled device that the company said alerts consumers when they are away from home to a potential fire or carbon monoxide (CO) risk. The device, available exclusively at The Home Depot, alerts consumers via a free iOS- or Android-compatible app, text, or email.
Developed to support a connected home, said Kidde, the RemoteLync Monitor is designed to cover the average-sized U.S. home, approximately 2,000 square feet. It does not require additional products, hubs or monthly fees to function.
The device plugs into a single outlet, listens 24/7 for the unique beeping pattern of existing smoke or CO alarms, and uses a home’s existing wireless Internet connection to contact homeowners if an alarm sounds.
“We believe that ‘smart’ solutions must be simple and above all else, reliable. The RemoteLync Monitor enables consumers to remain in control,” said Chris Rovenstine, vp/sales and marketing, Kidde. “They decide who needs to be notified of the risk detected and can feel secure knowing they have a simpler way to stay connected when they are away.”
The RemoteLync Monitor has an SRP of $99 and is available on Home Depot’s website and its home centers nationwide.
