"How We TestedEase of UseOur testing team built a custom apparatus designed specifically to analyze each smoke alarm’s detection capabilities. It was placed in the center of a room measuring 25. 33 x 18. 83 feet. We mounted and hardwired each of the detectors to the apparatus and noted how long it took to install each one using the included manufacturer instructions. After connecting each alarm to a Wi Fi network, we installed its associated mobile app on a smartphone. We evaluated how easy each app is to use and tested how long it takes for notifications to arrive on your mobile device when there is an emergency. We also assessed how well each device connects to third party smart home automation systems. We contacted each company, when possible, to assess how helpful its representatives are when resolving potential technical problems. Detection EfficiencyOur detection efficiency testing is for comparison purposes only and was not designed to replace industry standard safety certifications carried by each unit we reviewed. Perhaps the most important thing we learned from our testing is that smoke detectors have a limited range, which is one of the reasons modern building codes require a unit in every bedroom as well as in areas adjacent to bedrooms.
