Halo & Halo+ are currently only approved to interconnect with other multiple-station Halo devices. Assure the Interconnect wire as shown in the figure below is correctly installed.
Halo Wired Interconnect means that when one Halo gives you a Smoke/CO alarm, the other Halo devices in your home will also go into alarm. For example, when the Halo in the master bedroom detects smoke and begins alarming "Danger, Smoke Detected in the Master Bedroom." All other Halos will say the same thing.
Does your AC hardwired product use wired or wireless interconnect, or both?
Halo & Halo+ models currently available are AC powered models. They will use wired interconnect to ensure all your smoke alarms respond to an alert.
My home does not have the third red wire, will my Halo still work?
Halo & Halo+ will still function as a regular Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detector without the extra wire. The devices will be unable to communicate with each other via wired interconnect. You will still receive notifications on your mobile app.
Can I interconnect my Halo with my existing third-party smoke detectors?
The NFPA prohibits the connection of alarms from different manufacturers without specialized testing. In our research, we have not found any company that sells a combination smoke and CO alarm that is meant to connect with a different company's smoke and CO alarm. Each company uses different proprietary methods, and there is no industry standard. Therefore, We cannot guarantee 100% the interconnect feature will function as designed by Halo Smart Labs with any third-party smoke detectors and thus do not suggest customers to mix-and-match.
Will I receive a mobile notification from all the Halos?
You will only receive a mobile notification for the Halo detecting the emergency. To silence the alert, go to the room where the alarm was triggered to ensure no false alarms. All of the Halos in the house are hushed through the alarming Halo. Press the center button on the Halo or use the Halo app to hush the alarm.
• A maximum of 16 Halo devices may be interconnected in a multiple station arrangement. The interconnect system should not exceed the NFPA interconnect limit of 12 smoke alarms and/on 18 alarms total.
