Before I comment on the detector, I wanted to say that I have never reviewed anything on Slickdeals before however I think people should know some things before they consider purchasing the zwave detector.

I had purchased 6 of these units almost 2 years ago. They take 2 AA batteries, and are easy to setup and mount. I was up and riunning with all 6 in just under an hour with mounting.

With all that being said, you have to watch where you place these. Do NOT place them anywhere near a bathroom or where any steam can get remotely close. They WILL malfunction and beep constantly. Although the company did replace the unit right away, they are extremely sensitive.

Also - make sure you test WEEKLY like they say in the instructions. otherwise the battery will drain and will false alarm, even though Smart things shows it as 60% full. Once you test, it seems like it sends the battery reading to the Hub.

The units are loud, and work like they are supposed to, but there is more maintenance than I had originally thought. I am currently selling the house, and will look for something different for my new home. Hope this helps someone out.

In SmartThings, I have it automatically turn on the inside lights, unlock all exterior doors that I have z-wave locks on, and turn on extra z-wave sirens that I use as a burglar alarm just in case. I would receive notification on my phone, and it also sends a text to my neighbor just in case I am not home and they are. Hoping to make it easy for the pets to be saved if at all possible by anyone. It would be nice if the carbon monoxide alarm could be treated differently, but I guess I would want the pets to be saved in either case anyway, right? So it doesn't matter too much to me.

Carbon monoxide is lighter than air so it will rise to the ceiling. Though it doesn't really matter with a blower fan and natural convection.

Here's a direct link [amazon.com] to Amazon as the seller. (If you add the item to your cart from a specific seller, and then click on the link to the item from your cart, it'll take you to the page from that seller specifically with their "smid" on the URL for direct linking.)

Curious as to people's opinions on this. Trying to get my parents to move over from an old Staples hub to a SmartThings hub seeing as Staples no longer supports their hub at all... It doesn't say specifically it works with ST, but I see people talking about how it only reports both carbon monoxide and smoke detection as a single alarm, so it does at least work. Custom handlers could probably be written to do the rest.

It does work perfectly with ST. I have both. Although yes, it is a single alarm. But there may be custom handlers like you said.

Yea this is the one that is listed on the smartthings website. I just added this to my amazon wish list...debating between nest ones and these. Huge price difference.

As someone using it, whats your opinion? Do you have it set up with any other devices performing IFTTT functions? Anything else you've noticed it doesn't do that you want it to do?

This works great with Vera and is easy to pair. I have mine setup to turn on an alarm in my bedroom and send me text message when either alarm goes off. When you're sleeping with a fan and doors closed, it's very possible that you won't hear an alarm go off downstairs. It's great to have the extra security.

I'm picking up one more for the garage!

That's actually where I am putting the one I just picked up, too. Already have a few in the house.

I've been contemplating adding CO to my existing hard wire system and then getting the relays and a dry contact, but I might just throw a couple of these up. Like several others, my main concern is my pets when I'm not home, but secondly we don't currently have a CO detector, though our house is brand new so I'm not super worried about it. Since it's on back order I'm going to order now and think later.

A 2 in 1 smoke /carbon monoxide detector doesn't really make sense, because ideally you want a smoke detector high (smoke rises) and a carbon monoxide detector low

EDIT: This is all wrong. I was misinformed my bad.

Unfortunately Wink is a dying service, and has been for quite awhile. I'd make a jump to SmartThings before you wrap any more money into a dying service...

Lame. Mine is also programmed to fill the entire house with z-wave fire suppression foam!
