Xiaomi Honeywell Zigbee smoke detector, almost 4 days left on promo price.
Less than 2 quid more than the last time it was posted :
hotukdeals.com/dea…695 but around £9 cheaper than GB's current price.

Edit: I see GB have this alarm for £24.02 from euro warehouse GW-12.

Been reading the Smartthings community pages, and it's working with ST.
I've been looking at prices for Nest etc, and this is still a competitive price.
Our neighbour's house burned down, no alarms. We have a simple smoke detector installed, but we wouldn't've known anything about the fire if we hadn't been at home- an incident that makes mobile alerts more important, not just indications that I've left the window open.

Will this work with a Hue bridge? or do you need a xiaomi Zigbee receiver?
These are very good, I have two of them installed in my Xiaomi setup.
Euro warehouse only ships to Spain and Portugal.
How are banggood with shipping for import tax?

Unless the fire started at the router I'd imagine it would sniff the smoke in time and alert you that you have no home to return to. :P

In our case, the neighbour's back wall cladding caught fire followed by the roof, the inside was the last to go. Seven minutes from me calling the fire brigade to roof collapse, but it would've been enough time to send out an alert. The smoke was noticeable at the back another 2 or 3 minutes before that, but from the street, you couldn't see that anything was happening.

My xiaomi hub gave up on me, and I've started transferring the sensors to a Smartthings. All sensors on batteries, router on UPS, and a spare mobile with free-data sim for backup net access, is as much as you can do.
I wonder if they do a carbon monoxide version

Makes me think...
Guess the best contingency plan is to have a watch out after your back neighbour (such as yourself) and bring them pressies when back from holiday.
One cant put electrics, broadband, router, sensors in fireproof safe

They do too


Oh great. Do you know what the model number or model name is by chance?
Just got one from Aliexpress for £18.84.

If you use these with smartthings can you trigger the alarm when say a door or window sensor detects opening so that you can use them as a standard alarm

Yes, this type of product will work quite well.

But Honeywell aren't immune to running with failed projects.. eg, they're pulling out of the consumer thermostat market because their development has over-ran on time and costs. Same as with Google and Intel and others, they've all cancelled long-running projects that failed even though their names are behind them.

Useful if you followed the Grand Designs team making their own natural gas storage unit from a composting toilet.
I take it this doesn't work with Hive?

Hive devices can connect to Smartthings, I assume it's also a Zigbee protocol, but is there the functionality of connecting other devices to Hive? I don't know.

Just had a look and I don't think it will. What else do I need get one of these set up? Seems the nest version doesn't need a hub but it's £100+

If you look at the Xiaomi sensor posts, you'll see that on promotion from Banggood/Gearbest the Xiaomi hub can be had around £20, but regardless, the Xiaomi sensors are a bargain when on promotion (door/windows, PIR, thermometer).
I had their hub, but it gave up working properly.
Now the next best things (or first best option really if you want a warranty), is the Smartthings hub.
It will work with most of the Xiaomi devies, including this smoke alarm, judging by what is going on in the ST community pages, ie people have added device drivers.
The promotion prices of £50 for the ST hub are over, but will appear again, or can be had for £50-ish on ebay.
It's NOT worth the money getting the starter kit, because the cheap-as-chips Xiomi sensors are better, and you can add better devices from Tp-link etc.
The Amazon Echo Plus promised Zigbee connectivity, but I think it's failed.

So, get a good-priced Smartthings, add your Hive devices to it, connect your Ikea/Philips lights, add your Xiaomi sensors and cheap Zwave sensors too.

I agree but things they ship are tested to heaven (I work for them)

Disagree. Had some Honeywell commercial fire systems installed in a redeveloped property at work. After several months Honeywell agreed their product was not working as designed, installation not at fault, and ended up paying us to replace it all with a competitor product as they couldn't warrent it was going to work with their products.
can someone post a link to a device handler they have used with this for smartthings please? Google brings up a few different ones and lots of chattery noise but I don't want to buy this without knowing one of my fellow HUKDers has this working with smartthings!

Thanks.
Its at £22.55 atm on BG. Is it still a good deal or is tgere a better model now?

There isn't a newer model, only a separate gas detector. I often see promo prices from BG and GB around £25, it has been lower as mentioned. Just timing, if you need one now or can wait.
