Smart Smoke Detector | Cove Security

Smart Smoke Detector

Cove Smoke Detectors are built to catch fires while they are in their infancy. We immediately notify you and the fire department when a fire breaks out to make sure you, your loved ones, and your memories are safe.

This sample floor plan has two fire alarms. One of them is in the hallway near the bedrooms while the other fire alarm is in the family room. Just like regular smoke alarms, the more sensors you have in the home the higher the level of safety. Try not to place fire alarms directly over stoves or cooking areas, which can cause the sensor to create false alarms thereby reducing the safety provided by the sensor.


Smoke Detector Features and Safety Benefits

  • Extremely simple to install
  • 5+ year battery life
  • Built-in safety features that are smart, such as self-testing every 60 minutes
  • Customizable options & alerts that fit your lifestyle
  • Compatible with any home

Each fire alarm is pre-programmed with your Cove Touch panel. You can customize each sensor name to match its location within your home. With a couple of touches of the screen, you can confirm that each fire sensor is setup and ready to start protecting the ones you love.

At Cove, we believe your safety and peace of mind are priceless, and traditional fire alarms of the past have sometimes only served as noisemakers. This means when you’re not home, the traditional fire alarm does nothing for the safety of your home or to protect your priceless keepsakes. With Cove, our fire alarms are monitored 24/7 to make sure you and your local authorities are notified of any potential fires, putting your home and family’s safety first. Like all of our life safety products, we hope you never need to utilize our fire alarm, but if you ever do we will be there for you.
