Is there any Smoke alarm z-wave ? Or other solution as gc100 ?
« on: January 09, 2009, 03:33:43 pm »
Hi,

I am building a LinuxMCE system in my new house and at the moment I am looking into the things I need.
I live in Denmark (Europe) and plan on using Z-wave for doorcontacts and maybe also movement sensors.

I would like to have some smoke alams, but are there any good solutions ?
Is there any Smoke alarm that works with z-wave ?
I did not find anyone selling the GC100 in Denmark/Germany yet. And was also thinking if there is a cheaper solution ? The GC100 does also not have that many inputs.

I don't mind the smoke alarm to have cabeling as I can drill through the ceiling from the roof.

Thanks in advance :)
Viking

still no news on the z-wave product but I'm working on a ethernet detector..  The z-wave folks all want to implement the latest shiny zensor stuff, so i'd assume it will take some time until we see units on the market.

The pricing of the GC100 is so high that one could buy this z-wave detector and only use one of the imputs :
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Merten_506004_Connect_Radio_Transmitter_FM_4gang

And then attach for example a smoke alarm to it. They cost around 50€ a piece last time i looked.

Hi,

Assume Hari refers to the Everspring SF-812.

It is out with all approvals etc.
I have bought 8 pcs, but can not get them to work with LMCE
Assume only some template tuning might be the needed fix.

If anyone would like to help, then please contact me.

Spec Sheet for the SF-812 can be found as a PDF on this page:

Nice, I would be very interested in the Z-wave detectors although the price :x I would need to start saving. How well does the Z-wave frequency work through concrete walls?

Hey,
Price is not that bad. USD 100,- each for a smoke detector, wireless with battery and tamper alarm.. (Tamper alarm might be nice if you are renting out parts of your house)

I have included them in the Aeon Z-stick, but is too stupid to make a template and make it work.

Assume it would not be too much of a problem with concrete walls if you have several devices not too far away from each other... looks like good signal as I have installed a smoke detector in a small "building" next to my house as I have electricity and other stuff in there...

This needs a few lines of new code in the zwave device. Unfortunately I don't have a smoke detector..

Once I saw an elegant solution based on EnOcean. The €12 module with binary input was connected to the ordinary smoke detector using dry contact. As result the author got cheap smoke detector compatible with EnOcean. Not sure that the same can be done with Z-Wave. But still.
