protect your home

But, sometimes, a flashy design is overkill and a simple, non intrusive case is the better choice some don’t like a multitude of LEDs to shine from their ceiling. As you may have guessed, the First Alert SCO501CN 3ST indeed features a relatively simple white round case, on the front with a large Test/Silence Weekly button, as well as two LED indicators CO and Smoke and several cut out areas in form of a leaf and underneath it, there’s the speaker. On the lateral side, you’ll be able to identify a small cover which, when removed, will reveal a dedicated space for inserting the two batteries. The device is available as a battery only model and, unlike the PRC710 which has a sealed battery, the First Alert SCO501CN 3ST allows you to change the batteries as soon as necessary it requires 2 AA batteries – the negative aspect is that unlike the sealed batteries which can go up to 10 years which is usually the life expectancy of the smoke alarm, the removable type of batteries will last a lot less. The case of the SCO501CN 3ST is a bit more slimmer than the usual bulky smoke detectors, while maintaining an average diameter it measures 5. 0 x 5. 0 inches but it’s fairly lightweight, weighing only 1. 0lb. This particular model does not come as a hard wired detector, the only way to power it remains through the use of batteries and the only smoke/CO detectors from First Alert that can be connected to the home’s power source are the 120V AC Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm and the already mentioned OneLink detector. In order to install the First Alert 2 in 1 Z Wave detector, you need to take the mounting bracket and fix it to either the ceiling or the wall using the provided screws don’t mount it in the corners of the room and keep a minimum of 5 feet from any cooking appliances, since the air currents carrying the cooking smoke could get to the smoke sensor, thus triggering unwanted alarms. Afterwards, attach the smoke and CO detector to the mounting bracket by twisting the device into place depending on the spot where you want to install it, you may need to take additional steps to prevent any unauthorized removable – you can lock the battery compartment and/or the detector using the locking pins.

6 x 1. 7 x 1 inches, and has rounded corners. On its face is a round doorbell button lit by a blue ring, with the camera above it. Image credit: NestIts small size leaves no room for onboard power, which means the Nest Hello requires a wired connection with 16 to 24 volts of power. That power requirement can be an issue for older houses — I previously had to get the transformer on my 1946 built bungalow upgraded to get a Ring Pro doorbell with the same power requirements to work. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the August Doorbell Cam Pro run on batteries, which makes them easier to install. In addition, Nest requires you to install a small module called the "chime connector" inside your doorbell's chime box, located inside the home. Installation isn't difficult, but it is another step. Nest includes everything you need to attach the doorbell to your house, even a huge drill bit in case you have to drill into stucco siding. If you don't want to attempt the installation yourself, the company can connect you with a Nest Pro. But if your existing doorbell's power supply is up to snuff, the process isn't terribly complicated.
