First Alert - Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detector

Overview

First Alert reached out to Optimal Design to develop their next generation connected Smoke & Carbon Monoxide detector for their OneLink suite of connected home security products. This OneLink offering is the world’s first Smoke & Carbon Monoxide detector to feature Amazon Alexa voice command capabilities and Apple HomeKit integration. Optimal Design developed the hardware and firmware that powers the OneLink Ecosystem and engineered a connectivity strategy to ensure all First Alert products work seamlessly together in a safe manner. Optimal Design’s approach to the Internet of Things puts security at the forefront, providing robust connected product solutions that users can trust.

Challenge

Connecting multiple products that all “talk” to each other is no simple task, especially when considering the safety of families and their homes. With no margin for error, connected devices must work 100% of the time, with no bugs and no failures. OneLink necessitated this level of expertise and advanced engineering to become one of the first connected suites of home security products.

Innovation

OneLink is a connected suite of home security products including a Wi-Fi Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm, Wi-Fi Environmental Monitor, and Wi-Fi Connected Safe. First Alert engaged Optimal Design to develop the hardware and firmware that powers the OneLink Ecosystem, integrate Apple HomeKit, and create and implement a connectivity strategy to ensure all First Alert products work seamlessly together.
