Kidde RemoteLync Monitor

With summer in full swing there are children around the country that are at home while they’re parents are away at work. I remember when I was growing up, I stayed home with my younger brother during the summer while my parents worked. It wasn’t a big deal to me, but I’m sure for my parents, it was a constant worry that my brother and I were home alone.

Thankfully, since I work at home, I’m almost always with my children. I’ve started allowing my oldest to stay at home for very short periods of time while we’re out and I like the luxury of being connected to my home with the Kidde RemoteLync Monitor even when I’m away.

Simply plug in the Kidde RemoteLync Monitor into a single unit in your home and it will listen for any UL listed smoke or CO alarm and immediately alert you that there is a problem.

The Kidde RemoteLync Monitor is a small unit that is plugged into an outlet in your home. I placed ours in an inconspicuous area behind a chair in our family room. Unless you’re looking for it, you can’t see it. It’s purpose is to listen for any UL listed smoke or CO alarm that is installed in your home and notify you if it hears an alarm.

The Kidde RemoteLync Monitor was an absolute breeze to setup and I was able to do it by myself in under five minutes. After downloading the free RemoteLync App (available for iOS and Android), I created an account with an email I could check on my iPhone since that was the device I was using to set it up. Just keep that in mind when you’re setting up your device.

Just a note: I was unable to receive the confirmation email through my Hotmail account. However, it worked just fine with my Gmail account. After confirming my email address, I returned to the app to login to my account.

The next step required that I plugged the monitor into a non-switch outlet in my home. In the app on my device, I selected the Add/Connect feature to begin pairing the two devices. In the Wi-Fi settings on my phone, I connected to the monitor to my wireless router.

After plugging in the unit, I pressed the setup button on top of the unit and then followed the instructions given by the app. To test the unit, I had to make the furthest alarm from the unit sound. I didn’t realize all the alarms in my home were connected so we had a house full of loud beeping for a few seconds. Talk about sore ear drums.

After confirming that the unit was working, I was able to add people from my list of contacts to help monitor the home while we’re away. Each time the Kidde RemoteLync Monitor hears an alarm sound, the list of contacts specified within the app will receive a message.

Once the unit is up and running, you will be able to change monitor name, test monitor, view notification history and more.

The Kidde RemoteLync Monitor uses a patented technology to listen to the smoke and CO alarms already installed in your home, notifying you via the free app, text or email if the alarms sound. And there are no monthly fees for this service. After the initial purchase of the unit, there are no extra or added fees. Just a one-time fee and your home is constantly connected and ready to alert you in case of a problem. It’s user-friendly and is an inexpensive way to create a “smart home.”

While I definitely don’t ever want to get a notification from the Kidde RemoteLync Monitor, I like knowing that if I’m away and tragedy strikes, I’ll be notified so that the proper emergency respondents can be notified as soon as possible.

You can purchase the Kidde RemoteLync Monitor at Home Depot for the suggested retail price of $99!

    That is a really cool gadget. We live in a rural area so we are extremely leery of leaving kiddo along, even for a quick run up the street to the gas station. Something like this would really be helpful to squash a few of our fears.

    The Kidde RemoteLync Monitor sounds like a perfect idea for my home. We are in the boondocks and I’m not sure someone would notice a problem until the house burned and the fire had spread far enough to threaten other areas. Knowing other people will be notified as well is a great benefit.
