How can we help?


Can neighbors or friends monitor my smoke alarms?

Yes. We recommend you add trusted friends and neighbors as Monitors to check on your house for you if you are away. You can add Monitors in the Roost app on your smartphone.

If you have multiple batteries, perhaps some in a relative's home and some in your own home, you can add monitors by battery. For example, you may want your neighbor to monitor your home, but maybe another person to monitor your elderly mother's home if you have installed a battery in her home tied to your Roost Account. Or perhaps you have a vacation home and have installed Roost Smart Batteries in both your regular and vacation home. You can set up different monitors for the batteries at each of these locations, since you set up monitors by battery, not by account.

At Roost we care about your peace of mind. If there's an emergency while you're away, your friends and neighbors will be notified if one of your smoke or CO alarms sounds.
