Smoke detectors have gotten an upgrade since the days of your typical device. Now, you can use one smart device to monitor your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide levels, temperature, humidity, and more. Smoke detectors like the Owl Wired Smart Smoke Detector can give great peace of mind to homeowners, and, for what they can do, are well worth the price.
Owl Wired Smart Smoke Detector
The Owl Wired is more than just a smoke detector⎯full, all-in-one home safety system. When you replace your old smoke detectors with the Owl Wired, you gain the ability to not only monitor smoke, but carbon monoxide levels, temperature, humidity, sound, and motion. Using Wi-Fi, the Owl Wired app connects to the device for accurate and reliable monitoring that you can check on any time.
The Owl Wired works with both Apple Home and Google Home, and has iFTTT support. With HomeKit, you can control the device with Siri voice commands in addition to the iOS app, and Google Assistant, along with the Android app.
iFTTT is an industry standard software program that allows you to connect services, devices, and apps from varying manufacturers, giving more freedom to the types of products you can have in your home (just like what Matter seeks to do). It comes in both white and black, so you can choose which works for your home’s aesthetic.

A Comprehensive Home Monitoring System in One Small Package
The $169 Owl Wired Smoke Detector works with iOS and Android, and the HomeKit and Google Home ecosystems.

With a device like the Owl Wired, you can monitor all the major things you’d want from a smoke/carbon monoxide detector, and more. If you’re looking to replace your old, “dumb” smoke detector, consider the Owl Wired.
