Thank you Onelink by First Alert for sponsoring this post. A smart home should start with smart protection and Onelink by First Alert welcomes you to a smarter, safer home

Like most of the country recently, we’ve been having our fair share of storms here in Texas. The torrential rain and strong winds are one thing, but we’ve had an influx of fires nearby due to lightning strikes. In fact, the last storm hit a tree 50 yards from our house!

As you can imagine, with all of our kids sleeping upstairs, I want to make sure they are always safe. And, once we obtain our foster parent license, we’ll have even more precious children to protect inside our home.

Therefore, Onelink by First Alert alarms have been a great peace of mind for me through these latest rounds of thunderstorms. We easily hardwired the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm upstairs where the girls sleep and it offers our family protection against both smoke and carbon monoxide.

Of course, the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm is offered in both hardwired and battery-powered options to fit your house needs.

In addition to monitoring your home for smoke and carbon monoxide, the Onelink Safe & Sound Alarm and Speaker also gives you the ability to talk to Alexa.

This means you can play music, movies or audio books through the built-in premium home speaker; as well as utilize hands-free voice commands to control smart home devices, thermostats, locks, and more.

We installed the alarm in our master bedroom and are able to not only control our other smart home devices, but have an ambient customizable nightlight shining down as well.

Plus, you can receive notifications on your phone through the Onelink Home app, if either a smoke or carbon monoxide emergency is present. This means I don’t have to worry about not hearing it while downstairs or away from the house as long as I have my phone nearby.

If you’re in the house, voice alerts through each of the Onelink by First Alert devices installed will tell you the type of danger present and where it is located in your home. No guessing where it’s coming from and where to direct your family to safety!

Taking the guesswork out of the situation with Onelink by First Alert can help keep everyone a bit calmer and remove some of the chaos the emergency can cause.

In order to ensure your alarm stays in top working order, use these safety tips:

  • Install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every level and in every bedroom of your home
  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms regularly. With Onelink alarms, you can easily test your alarm from your phone via the Onelink Home app
  • Remember to replace your alarms at least every ten years as they are not made to last forever
  • Plan and PRACTICE an escape route with all members of your family

When there’s an emergency, it’s best to be over prepared than not prepared at all; especially with children in the house. Having fire drills helps them to be better prepared for how to handle a real emergency.
