Roost is launching its Roost Smart Battery at CES 2016, designed to transforms existing smoke and CO alarms into smart alarms.
Via its familiar 9V form factor, free mobile app and advanced Wi-Fi technology, the Roost Smart Battery leverages existing smoke alarms through a simple retrofit. Easy to install in less than five minutes, the battery sends notifications to a smartphone whenever the smoke alarm sounds, even while the user is are away. With five years of battery life, and advance warning, it also eliminates those annoying three a.m. low battery chirps, noted the company.
In addition to its core functionality, the Roost Smart Battery also features Home Circle Monitoring, enabling trusted friends and family to receive notifications by inviting them to download the Roost app.
The Roost Smart Battery has been selected as a “CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree” in the Smart Home product category.
Now available, the Roost Smart battery is priced at $34.99 for a one-pack and $64.99 for a two-pack.
