Fireangel smoke detector or other AC connected alternatives

Hi

anyone tested generic inclusion of Fireangle smoke detectors? (i know there is a community app request for it, but i don’t think there is any progress there)

or other AC connected alternatives?

I want this one so badly I almost want to buy Futurehome just for this purpose, since there is no available app for Homey.

I dont understand why no one is talking about this one, or why there is no other good alternatives on the market (since Google nest protect shut down their API).

The only decent alternative I have found is POPP.

Hi

I have used FH for 2 years, but the development of new functionality have taken longer than they first expected and at times the stability has been an issue.

But now it looks like they will be able to deliver a new native app for Android and ios Q1 2020 with more automation features. They have also been working on anew backend + exposing the API of the z-wave GW.

This is a good point, I have not found any Z Wave, mains powered smoke detectors for UK Market. Fireangel should also fit existing ceiling mount. Would of course look forwards to an app

I have the SDCO, and I’m missing support in Homey as well. I don’t have any knowledge regarding making apps in Homey, but it would be nice if anyone who do, concider making one for this.
I have both the AC, and the one with just battery, for testing.
I’m considering buying a Futurehome HUB, and connect it through IFTTT. This will not be an ideal solution, but now I don’t have much choice.

I have bought 4 and also would realy like an app. I’m willing to donate or lent one out.
