I purposely skipped the first generation of OneLink because it was a mess software wise the app was unstable and the device would constantly trigger false alarms, so the company has worked hard to fix these issues and hoped that this new device would receive more positive feedback from the audience. To further set it apart from its predecessor and its competitors – which are not that many, the First Alert Onelink Safe and Sound has included a built in speaker and has embedded Alexa Voice Services, while also keeping the compatibility with Apple’s HomeKit of course, this has driven the price up significantly. Since the Halo Smoke Alarm got discontinued and the Cloud based support got closed as well, I can understand why people may be reluctant with giving start ups a chance and instead may prefer to go with a more mature company that’s been in the business for longer and that’s where the likes of Nest and OneLink Safe and Sound come into play and remain overall favourites in spite of the usually higher price tags. The First Alert Onelink Safe and Sound detector features a fairly large oval case made of plastic, with the front side divided into multiple inner sections by narrow plastic bands, the device mostly being covered by lots of puncture holes the middle section is slightly elevated. Surrounding the top area there’s a metallic ring while towards the bottom, the case gets significantly slimmer and it features narrow holes all around to allow the smoke to enter the inner chamber. It’s hard not to see the striking similarities with the Nest Protect, which is also covered by lots of small holes on the front side, as well as the overall shape of the smoke detector and the LED light which shines from the circular middle section on both smoke detectors it’s clear that all smart smoke and CO detectors follow the same design pattern, so it’s not surprise that both the First Alert Onelink and Nest Protect look so similar: it seems that developers either think that this is the most ergonomic design or are simply afraid to try something new.

Yellow means there's a malfunction or a low battery, while red means there's a fire or smoke condition. Onelink's alarm uses photoelectric technology, which is generally better at detecting smoldering fires than are alarms that use ionization technology. However, the latter are better at detecting fast burning fires. The Onelink can be connected to HomeKit and Alexa but not Google Assistant, so you can ask both Siri and Amazon's voice assistant for the status of the smoke detector, but not much else. By contrast, if the Nest Protect detects fire or carbon monoxide, you can have it automatically turn on a security camera, open Lutron blinds, turn on Philips Hue lights, turn off your heat and more. Setup should theoretically be easy—just scan a HomeKit code in the Onelink app—but it took a few tries to get it to work.

When the camera senses movement around the doorbell or the actual ringing of the doorbell, it sends a live video feed to your smart phone. You can see this feed and determine whether or not you want to open the door. In many instances, you will be able to talk to the person at your front door via your phone through your doorbell camera.
