Roost Smart Alarms Detect Smoke, Fire, CO and Natural Gas via Internet of Things

Smart smoke alarms from Roost were recently introduced at the National Hardware Show this past May in Las Vegas. The RSA-400 is a combination smoke, fire, CO and natural gas detector, while the RSA-200 is a combination smoke and fire detector.

These days we have smart phones, smart TVs, smart lighting, and even robotic vacuum cleaners, so it only makes sense that homeowners should have smart alarms. Fulfilling the residential market's hunger for smart devices, the San Francisco-based company Roost has just introduced two new smart alarm products: RSA-400 and RSA-200

The announcement of these products follows the company's first product the Roost Smart Battery, which is designed for smoke alarms. The company states that with the RSA-400, which is a combination smoke, fire, CO and natural gas detector, and the RSA-200, which is a combination smoke and fire detector, homeowners can protect themselves and properties using the latest technologies. 

“The introduction of the Roost Smart Battery was a game changer for IoT technology that enabled consmers to enter the smart home without spending a fortune on new devices,” says Roel Peters, CEO and co-founder of Roost. “We are building on that success by expanding our product offerings to include a full featured family of Roost smart alarms. The RSA-400 and RSA-200 will offer enhanced sensor technology, while providing affordable smart home safety solutions for new and replacement installations.”

The Roost products are able to monitor a home 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The two alarms help homeowners follow the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) recommendation to replace smoke alarms every 10 years. And you can finally say goodbye to those annoying 3 a.m. low battery alarms sounding off when batteries need replacement. Roost's alarms notify users weeks in advance to avoid this problem.

Both products also employ Universal Security Instruments' (USI) Universal Sensing Technology that reduces nuisance alarms to effectively detect slow, smoldering and fast flaming fires.
