    Insteon Smoke Bridge 2982-222 on Amazon here.

    The marriage of a smoke alarm and an Insteon home automation system can allow you to get automatic alerts on your smarthphone. Wouldn't you like to know whenever a smoke, fire, or carbon monoxide alarm goes off at your home, even when you're far from home? With no monthly subscription?

    Get started by reading
    My home’s First Alert ONELINK system for smoke and carbon monoxide detection includes voiced warnings, with optional smartphone alerts

    then have a look at the family of products
    First Alert ONELINK Items

    then you'll understand that the
    Insteon Smoke Bridge 2982-222
    allows these 2 product families to communicate.

    Released in 2003, this small plug in module bridges (connects) the Insteon wireless network with the ONELINK wireless network communications. For me, this was a great find, since I had already bought into Insteon back in 2008, and ONELINK back in 2010. This product works, and works well, alerting your smartphone to any smoke or CO Detector alerts, even when you're not at home.

    This exciting new capability gives me faith more cool stuff is coming, and that I made the right choice when going with Insteon, back in 2008. This family of products are meeting my growing needs nicely.
