First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound Smoke Alarm Gets AirPlay 2 Support
First Alert’s Onelink Safe & Sound 3-in-1 smoke and carbon monoxide detector with premium home speaker has just received support for Apple’s AirPlay 2. Thanks to an over-the-air update, users can now play music using AirPlay 2 from their Onelink Safe & Sound using any iOS device.
For those who aren’t aware, AirPlay 2 enables a wireless multi-room audio system by allowing users to select where the music is playing in Control Center on an iOS device or by simply asking Siri to play music in a specific room or the whole home.
Apple customers can add Onelink Safe & Sound to the Apple Home app to receive smoke and CO notifications in addition to music control via Siri on iPhone, iPad, HomePod, or Apple Watch.
“While adding to the entertainment features of the Onelink Safe & Sound, we are still providing convenience and peace of mind,” said Tom Russo, vice president of marketing and new product development at First Alert, the most trusted brand in home safety*. “The Onelink Safe & Sound also continues to protect what matters most, a legacy First Alert has fostered for more than 60 years, with premium smoke, fire and CO functionality.”
The Onelink Safe & Sound also has Amazon Alexa built-in, meaning users can simply ask Alexa to play music, hear the news, check the weather and more.
