Netatmo has unveiled its smart smoke alarm, which boasts Apple HomeKit compatibility.

The Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm boasts an 85db siren and will send a notification to your smartphone if smoke is detected, which offers that extra peace of mind when you’re away from home.

Like the Nest Protect, which is the standout smart smoke alarm in the connect home space, you can also hush false alarms either from your smartphone or from the device itself. You can also install multiple smoke alarms and name them individually, so you’ll get an alert that says “smoke detected in the living room.”

While smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years, most will require their battery to be replaced in that time. Netatmo guarantees that its detector will last the full decade without swapping the battery. However, you can check in on the current battery level and do an alarm test by using HomeKit.

Interestingly, there doesn’t seem to be any Google Assistant compatibility yet – but we wouldn’t be surprised to see this added via an update.

The Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm is set to launch on 8 October for $99 – which is a fairly impressive price given the features on offer and the battery life. There's no word on US availability.
