Smoke alarms

Yea.. It really sucks.. I ordered it a few times from different places.. Keep getting the old non-plus

Oh, I didn't see that before I bought the Z-wave one (which is arriving Monday). I'd love to know if anyone is using the Zigbee version (for the same reason - almost all my devices and repeaters are Zigbee).

I do see that only the Z-wave model is in the List of Compatible Devices - Hubitat Documentation

I have the Z-wave one, problem is I have seen a few of these that look exactly the same, some branded as Heiman and some not. I have "one" that is not branded on the device but is labeled as Heiman on the box. What I am finding is that it shows the battery level, clear and that is that, when I press the test button nothing logs or changes in the HE. her is my data from the data section. If you have a look it says manufacturer:608 ?

Having just migrated all my zwave devices from my C-4 to my C-7, I just think of how much more work it would have been had I had zwave smoke detectors.... 13 (minimum) extra trips up/down the ladder to unpair/pair over again. No thanks!

...has been postponed until June 21st 2021. If we do come out with this technology, it will be highlighted on our website at that time

A potential product launch one year from now...hmmm...I'm not so sure I would want to put a lot of eggs in that basket. :wink:

So first all the concerts I wanted to go to this Summer get delayed til Summer 2021, and now we'll have to wait til then to maybe see a hard-wired Z-COMBO? Thanks a lot covid... :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:


I received in my Heiman Z-Wave smokie.

It detected fine as a Generic Z-Wave Smoke Detector with the new in-built driver. But not getting events when tested.

Here's my version of a driver - converted from SmartThings and modified a good bit. I cant get HE to automagically detect my driver - so to use mine you need to change driver from the Generic to this one. I deselected all security FYI.

Hi @simon

Thanks my Z-wave smoke detector is working now with the updates platform drivers. If a press the test button, I get "smoke detected" for about half a second then all clear message. I might give yours a try as well.

Thanks once again for the effort.

Maybe the link was bad so either Smoke detector Zigbee HEIMAN - Domótica Económica or Smoke detector Zigbee Xiaomi Honeywell - Domótica Económica Anyone got thoughts on which one is better?

As an update - this device really works well.

We're having work done in our house (our kitchen remodel) and yesterday the dust from the re-nailing of the subfloor after the old tile was removed set off the new smoke alarms, which was picked up by the FF-ZWAVE5 and in turn set off my rules on Hubitat. The alert on my phone came under a second after the smoke alarms starting blaring, and Alexa announced things also.

Although my wife was not pleased with Alexa saying "Fire! Fire! Run for the hills". I'll have to change that.


What do you mean she wasn't pleased?! I love that...they should bake that warning into the firmware. :wink:


A feature I also like about these smoke detectors.
Another advantage is the Dual Spectrum Optical sensors, these are the best option security wise. They use two lasers - one that can see large particles and the other to detect small particles. They are good at detecting fast burning fires as well as slow smouldering fire with thick smoke.

In my research I also stumbled upon the Fibaro Smoke alerts, they seem the cheapest smart Hubitat compatible solution I've found so far.

Hi all, somehow related question. I now have 4x Heiman HS1SA Zigbee smoke detectors using drivers by @simon (thanks for these!). Do you guys know if there is an app or a way to write a rule that would trigger all 4 alarms if any / only one of them detects smoke?


Not that I know of.
From a communications point of view these devices are fast asleep most of the time.

Never heard of a zigbee (or z-wave) smoke detector that has a wireless interconnect function, which is essentially what you're asking for. Have to go with something like Nest Protect, or detectors with proprietary wireless interconnects, AFAIK (but I'm unfamiliar with what's available in the UK).

Yeah, the more research on this I am doing the more I am arriving at a conclusion I should probably leave my main smoke detectors dumb and mains-powered.

Initially I was hoping to replace all of my four dumb mains-powered, interconnected smoke detectors by 4x Heiman ZIgbee ones. And while they are compliant with British regulations as far as smoke detectors go, doing what I planned on doing wouldn't be compliant with British building regulations (as far as I can tell...). Looks like I need my smoke detectors to be mains-powered and interconnected.

So it looks like I will need to stay with mains-powered dumb detectors and only enhance the overall protection with Heiman Zigbeen ones...


If your driver has a test command you could trigger it from RM. It may only sound the alarm for a short period but should be easily programmed to re-sound until turned off.

Other than never giving false alarms, it’s one of the reasons I like the Nest so much. They are interconnected by design using thread, whether mains powered or the battery versions.

There are FireAngel Zigbee and Z-Wave modules that work with their mains powered smoke detectors

Search for FireAngel Zigbee Module/FireAngel Z-Wave Module

But I am not sure if these can be interconnected other than via a mains loop

They also provide products with built in modules on their own wireless protocol that does support wireless interlinking and remote testing

Look up: FireAngel Pro Connected Smart Smoke Alarm, Mains Powered with Wireless Interlink and 10 Year Life Back-Up Battery, FP1640W2-R on Amazon
