This is one of the few smart detectors that are wired and also can communicate with many other wired brands. They sell for roughly $130 each at other sites including Amazon.com

Stack with a $10 or $20 off Lowes coupon which are readily available here on the forums to make it even slicker.

If I install 7 of these and test them all at once, will it kill any mutant fungus spores in my house... Whistling

That's really a dumb question, you should realize it takes at least 9 of them to kill the spores.


And OP, while this is a decent deal and I took advantage of it last week and now have 6 of these around the house, a couple things:

- They aren't $130 normal price, yes Amazon has them at an inflated number, but Lowes sells the Halo for $99 normally.

- The Halo+ (adds weather radio alerts) is also on sale for $114.75 (normally $135)

I combined the Halo+ and Halo and used a $40 off $200 coupon. In another I bought two Halos and added ~$30 fillers to use another $40 off $200 coupon, and finally, the last two I used a $20 off $100 on each with $15 fillers for both.

I saw that lowes says they normally sell them for $100. Forgot to add the info on the plus model. Not sure why people are down voting this. AFAIK It's one of only two hardwired smart smoke/C02 detectors.

FYI, I think the retail on the plus model is $149, per Home Depot.

It was a week long sale, and their sales seem to begin / end on Fridays. They had the same deal about a month ago, so anyone on the market, keep watching.

But originally 7 worked, and I don't have 9 rooms. I guess I could split the large rooms up and have double coverage in certain quadrants, but that might leave some spores in hidden spots after the big test. Maybe my network is too spartan and I need the elite setup... hug

Got 3 of them with $40 off coupon. Could have split into 3 separate orders and save another $5 but felt too lazy.
Quick question for folks with more experience in home automation: these are zigbee units, how do I make them work with smartthings? I am just starting, have ST hub and Wink2 hub laying around, about time to get them going.

It's coming up as $135 for me still. Unfortunate, because it's the Halo+ that I want and I want like 5 of them.

SmartThings will pair with Zigbee and Zwave. So you should just have to add a thing like normal. Will do some research to see if I can additional info like custom device handler....

Am I kissing something? Why would you need more than one? If one "dumb" smoke alarm went off it would notify the one "smart/halo" alarm and then you can trigger all your events as you wish? This saves you the most money right.

Other than them talking to you I don't see why you need more than one?
