Most of the time, your Smart Battery will be silently and reliably working to monitor your home's smoke alarm. In the case of alert, you'll receive a notification on your smartphone. You will also be able to open the app to silence your alarm, see which of your invited Monitors are near the alarm, or call emergency contacts.
When your Smart Battery detects an alert from your smoke alarm, you will receive a notification on your smartphone.
If you tap on this notification, it'll open up the Roost app and reveal several options:
- Call Emergency Contact
- View Monitors
- Snooze Alarm
When you Snooze Alarm, this will silence your smoke alarm for approximately three (3) minutes. This is especially handy when you have a false alarm (say, burn the toast). Please note that this feature only works with alarms that are only powered by 9V batteries and are not hard-wired to A/C power.
If you are not near your home when you receive an alert, you may select "View Monitors" to see if one of your Monitors is nearby your home. The Roost app uses location services to determine if a Monitor is in close proximity to the home where the alarm is sounding. This helps you quickly identify someone near your home who can verify if an alert is a real emergency or just a false alarm.
Call Emergency Contact
You may elect to call your pre-programmed emergency contact if none of your Monitors are near your home.
