- Does not work- August 7, 2020
I was able to install the Listener but when testing it it never worked. I read the manual and Ring pathetically tried to say that the smoke detector may be too old. I just moved I to a newly built house with new alarm systems. When trying to connect with Ring for technical support there is none for new installs and device troubleshooting. Save your money and don’t buy Ring Smoke/CO2 listener. Their other products seem to work but keep in mind there currently no tech support for installs because of COVID19 so you may want to seek another alarm system if you don’t already have Ring alreadyNo, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Effective, but missing one feature- June 1, 2020
These are effective, small, and easy(ish) to install. I learned that installing anything on the ceiling isn't all that easy due to the angle/height. However, these are small, and since all my smoke detectors are wired together, I only need on unit to listen to the whole house. The one downside that I have found is that they don't have a way to turn it off or bypass it for 5 mins to change your smoke alarm backup battery. You have to take the battery out. Also, I suggest you call Ring and tell them you are re-setting or testing your smoke alarm, or else you may end up with a visit from your local fire station, which is what happened to me. Since they listen for CO and smoke, once a CO alarm is sent, there is no way to recall/stop it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent way to add fire dept. response to Ring!- October 28, 2020
I first attempted to get a First Alert 'works with ring' smoke/CO alarm to connect and stay connected to my Ring home alarm without success. So I returned that and bought this instead. Since I already had smoke alarms and CO alarms, it made more sense anyway rather than replacing one of my existing alarms. So far so good! It connected easily and tested out fine. Fortunately I haven't needed to rely on it yet, but knowing that my home can send a fire alarm signal to the fire department when I'm not at home puts me at ease.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
