Available now: The world's first Z-Wave smoke detector with certification to EN14604 by VdS

02.07.2015

In the framework of current product launches from the company POPP & Co. Z-Wave Europe is proud to announce as the main distributor that as of now the new smoke detector is available for ordering. This device announced in March for the first time combines two separate devices (smoke detector, indoor siren) and is the world’s first Z-Wave smoke detector certification to EN14604 by VdS.

In contrast to previously available smoke detectors, the new device by the manufacturer POPP can easily be integrated into the Z-Wave network. The smoke detector also allows for custom alerts and functions other than the standard acoustic signal. Through its innovative design, residents are not only warned by an acoustic signal but also by text message to a smart phone even if they are not at home at the time of the event. To enhance safety, escape routes can be highlighted with automated lighting and unlocking or locking of shutters and doors. The new smoke detector is able to control the individual components independently through Z-Wave technology and can be used in a home network without a central control gateway.

All POPP smoke detectors detect all other smoke sensors within a Z-Wave network and will relay all alarms to them to create a house-wide alarm. This connection of the smoke sensors is fully automatic and needs no further configuration.

If the device is logged into a smart home office as smoke detector, it may be there also used as an independent indoor siren and can be integrated into an existing alarm system. Thus, a loud beep is activated when windows or doors are opened or motion sensor detects movements inside a house or an apartment when the homeowners are away.

Further information on this unique Z-Wave smoke detector can be found at POPP website.
