As technologies improve, the popularity of having a smart home has been widely increasing. They allow you to keep an eye on the safety and security of your home, wherever you are. You can do it on your sofa when you’re too comfy to get up or from the other side of the world.
Currently, the Cavius range of smart home devices includes smoke and heat alarms, along with flood alarms too. However, Cavius are constantly expanding their range, with new devices and features coming soon.
Wirelessly-Linked Smoke Alarms
Having inter-connected smoke alarms means the whole house will receive a warning when a fire is detected, rather than just sounding the smoke alarm in that one room. This ensures that everyone has plenty of time to react, either getting themselves to safety in plenty of time or putting out the fire in its early stages.
The Cavius range is battery powered and wirelessly linked, meaning there is no wiring required in installation, saving on electrician costs, so they can just be screwed to the ceiling. With smoke and heat alarms in the range, you can also have a flood alarm installed behind the washing machine or in a basement so a leak or flood doesn’t go unnoticed.
There is also no obligation to connect these to the internet; they’ll work as usual, minus the ability to control them from your phone or tablet.
Connecting To The Internet
It’s easy to connect your wireless Cavius alarms to the Internet. When you purchase the alarm hub, this simply plugs into the back of your router and connects wirelessly to the compatible alarms in your home. It’s a one-off cost, and there are no service charges to worry about.
Once you download the free app, available on Apple and Android devices, it is then easy to check the condition of your alarms, to test them weekly, and to see which device activated the alarm. You can even name each alarm, so you know which one is the smoke alarm on the stairs.
Allowing you to manage the smoke alarms wherever you are, they’re compatible with the Google Assistant too. You can even add temporary users which allows you to have a trusted friend who would receive an alert to an alarm in your home, which is ideal for while you’re on holiday.
