Great little sensor!
Awesome little sensor. I bought two, and aside from a minor connection issue with one (which resolved itself once I restarted it) they have been working beautifully. They aren’t going to change your life, but its good to know (especially the CO2 monitoring). I placed one in the kitchen, and one down the hall near my kid’s bedroom. The LED light ring it nice as well for a quick check, and it works well with HomeKit.10/04/2022Verified Purchase
Doesn't work with Android. Alexa not great either. DON'T BUY FOR ALEXA!!
I bought it though I knew that I had to use a work-around for Alexa but for full features you should have phone app. Only for IOS so my Android (Google) phone can’t keep track when away from home. It is designed for Apple IOS and Apple Home. if you have these – go for it.09/20/2022Verified Purchase
My main carbon detector is in my master bedroom and it is tied into my ADT alarm system. So, I use this carbon detector in my kitchen which is located between my family room and bonus room. Setup was quick and easy, the alarm is loud enough to hear over noises, and the unit has a small, unobtrusive footprint. The accuracy of the humidity and temperature reading are, however, somewhat questionable. These readings are one to three percentage points/degrees off when compared to those provided by my Nest thermometer.07/21/2022Verified Purchase
Really wanted to like - total fail. #UPDATE# finally got it working.
The product was a disaster from start to finish. Really wanted to like and use this but it’s a total failure. Wouldn’t connect to HomeKit at first. Once I finally got it to connect, it said the battery was low and the device was not receiving power, so first of all I replaced that battery. Still reporting the same two issues. Removed the battery, and plugged it back in, and it was still saying low battery when there was no battery and saying it was getting no charge/power even though it had to be for it to report this false info! Due to the low battery issue, it would do a very loud warning click every minute, which rendered it totally unsuitable for anywhere, let alone a bedroom. Even sent the manufacturer an email, but no reply. Sending it back. Don’t waste your money folks. #UPDATE# finally got it working even though the method I tried wasn’t mentioned in either the manual or from the customer service reps. All working now, although I’m still in two minds about recommending it, due to the confusing and inaccurate instructions and the lack of trained support. As with other reports, it does seem to lose connection to ypur network. Whether that’s due to the network itself or the fault of the device, I’m not sure, but most of my other devices don’t act this way, so I’m inclined to think it’s the device that’s at fault here.06/06/2022Verified Purchase
Save your Money
Worked ok for the first 1.5 years connected to an Apple Home Pod. Stopped working and indicated needed to be replaced. Contacted First Alert, and they no longer are making this…so what is the point of a 10 year warranty. Replaced with a non ‘home kit’ model. Horrible warranty support.05/28/2022Verified Purchase

This device is quite expensive for what it does. Basically it gives you a read on temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide however it only works if you are connected to the same network as the device. Also, the app is poorly designed it took forever to connect the device with the app and after a couple days it disconnected again so I ended up using my home app on iPhone to get the readings. Something that you can plug for carbon dioxide and a room thermometer could work as well as this expensive device. I was hoping I can get notifications of the room conditions while I am outside my house but it does not work.05/18/2022Verified Purchase
