Apple® HomeKit-enabled Onelink by First Alert®
Portfolio Ushers in New Era of Smart Products

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pairing First Alert’s legacy of safety and innovation with Apple’s revolutionary
HomeKit technology, the new Onelink by First Alert® portfolio
of products sets the stage for a new era of safe, secure and simple
connected homes. Delivering convenience, control and peace of mind, this
innovative collection of smart devices will be the focal point of the
Onelink by First Alert booth (Sands Expo #71831) at the 2016 Consumer
Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

CES attendees will experience first-hand the many features and benefits
of the new Onelink products via an experiential presentation, designed
to demonstrate how they work together to make it easy for consumers to
monitor and control their homes’ comfort and security from anywhere, at
any time.

“Onelink by First Alert brings safety and simplicity with security to
the connected home space,” said Tom Russo, president of First Alert. “By
demonstrating how these products work – and work together – we can give
visitors a real sense of the limitless possibilities that are available
to protect what matters most: our families and homes.”

Common Sense Products for Connected Homes

The Onelink by First Alert portfolio includes a range of home monitoring
devices designed to seamlessly integrate with a growing number of
HomeKit accessories to create a comprehensive smart home system that
conveniently connects users to their homes via the Onelink Home App on
their iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) or Apple Watch. Initial
product offerings include:

  • Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Smoke + Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm
    – This intuitive, easy-to-install, two-in-one alarm protects against
    the threats of smoke and carbon monoxide, and notifies users on their
    iOS devices in the event of an emergency. The alarm is offered in both
    hardwired (with 10-year sealed battery back-up) and 10-year sealed
    battery versions to accommodate different consumer needs and building
  • Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Environment Monitor – A
    first-of-its-kind innovation, this smart device features advanced
    sensing technologies to monitor for both high and low levels of carbon
    monoxide (CO), both of which can be harmful. Additionally, it monitors
    temperature and humidity and notifies users on their iOS devices of
    any changes. A multi-colored LED ring on the device informs users at a
    glance regarding the status of a room’s environment, and changes color
    to indicate shifts in temperature or other conditions.
  • Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Safe – Convenient connectivity is
    the hallmark of this sleek and smart safe. It connects remotely via
    Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE with iOS devices, and can be unlocked
    securely from the Onelink Home App. The battery-operated safe includes
    a built-in accelerometer that detects motion and alerts users via the
    app if anyone attempts to move or open it.
  • Onelink by First Alert Wi-Fi Thermostat – Ideal for homes and
    small business settings, this programmable regulator connects easily
    to Wi-Fi and enables users to control their heating and cooling
    directly from an iOS device via the Onelink Home App. Using the app or
    the thermostat’s full-color touchscreen interface, users can set the
    temperature, turn heating or air conditioning on or off, trigger
    pre-set home or away settings, and set a schedule by the day of the
    week and the time of day.

“Since inventing our first smoke alarm more than 50 years ago, First
Alert has been at the forefront of advancement in home safety
technology,” noted Russo. “This legacy, combined with the proven
performance of our products through the years, has earned First Alert a
reputation as the most trusted name in home safety*. The Onelink
portfolio brings our expertise to the growing connected home space, and
we look forward to continuing to win consumers’ trust in this dynamic
