Heiman smoke detector



Hello guys,

I’ve also (blind) bought some of these via ALI.
They can be added as a general z-wave device and are inactive when viewing in the homey app.
I presume they become active when smoke is detected (has anyone tried this?). In that way hypothetically you can write a flow to make them work.




I havent tried it. I added them as general zigbee (i have the zigbee version, heiman sells both versions) and pressed the test button and it didnt swich on in the flow.
Also i tried to make a flow where if one of the smokedetectors would be active, it would also push the others in active (i have three) but it didn’t work if i ran the test flow option.
With this i wanted to make a flow that would active all the three smoke detectors if one gets active.


I see an app is there for the smoke detector. And it works fine, hope the temp sensor and door contact also being supported soon.


i found the app for zwave. still have to wait for the zigbee option.
hope this is still work in process


I’m curious about progress too. I now have two of the zigbee version (2 more on the way) and was hoping to include them in my home security system. I’m unsure about the on/off state in case of fire, but sadly it isn’t linked to the siren.


Thanks for creating the Zwave version!!


As an update, I tested the on/off state with smoke, but it does not do anything. Until the inclusion of the zigbee sensors in the app, these are just dumb smoke sensors.


Which is logical, because the sensor is sleeping (and not listening continuously) to preserve the battery.


Thanks for the great app!

I finally can include my smoke sensors.

However I can’t join the smoke sensors together so when the one upstairs detects smoke, the ones downstairs wil start the alarm too.

Is this even possible with this type of smoke sensor?

I now have a workaround with a flow for each smoke sensor assiociated with the general alarms…

But a happy homey user over here!


@TedTolboom is there any timeframe for.the zigbee inclusion into the app?
