What is a Smart Home?

A smart home is one that is equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices (like Halo) that can be controlled remotely from your phone, your computer, or a smart home hub. A smart home is the new Internet of Things.

A smart home takes advantage of advancements in technology to make your home a safer place and offers solutions to everyday challenges around your home. Connected home products include smart smoke alarms, smart thermostats, smart door locks and security systems, and other home appliances and consumer electronics that you can control with the touch of a button or with the sound of your voice.

At Halo Smart Labs, we use smart home technology in multiple ways. Our Halo and Halo+ Smart Smoke and CO Alarms both use our innovative Smartlogic™ technology that combines multiple sensors to detect fires faster. We also use a platform that works with the connected devices you’re already using in your home. Whether you chose Samsung SmartThings, Iris by Lowe’s, or Amazon Echo, our smart smoke detectors will work with your system and communicate with your other devices and smoke alarms. We continue to add new ‘Works With’ partners all the time and we’ll be updating this list in the coming months as we roll out new compatibility for the fall.

We work hard to provide life-saving connected products that will work in the smart home environment that you’ve created.
