1. Specifically, in an example, each of the power supply line and the ground line includes a respective fork terminal coupled to a corresponding wire terminal 720, and fixed thereto by tightening a screw fastener. Under some circumstances, the doorbell camera 106 is mounted on a wall or doorframe surface in place of a conventional doorbell, and the plurality of wire terminals 722 are coupled to receive the power supply line and the ground line that were applied to drive the conventional doorbell. Alternatively, in some implementations, the electrical connector 722 is coupled to one or more electrical wires for receiving a power supply or exchanging data with another electronic device. In an example, both the plurality of wire terminals 720 and the electrical connector 722 are available on the rear exterior surface of the device housing 702. The electrical connector 722 is only connected in a factory for testing, calibrating and/or setting up the doorbell camera 106, while the plurality of wire terminals 720 are applied to provide the power supply in the factory and/or after the doorbell camera 106 is shipped to a customer. In some implementations, the rear exterior surface of the device housing 702 includes a plurality of recesses 724. For example, the plurality of wire terminals 720 is disposed within a first recess 724A, and separated by a separation 730 that protects the lines connected to the first and second terminals of the plurality of wire terminals 720 from being shorted to each other. A height of the separation 730 may be smaller than a depth of the first recess, and the depth of the first recess 724A is configured to be greater than a height of a connection formed between the plurality of wire terminals 720 and the power supply or ground line. Specifically, in the above example, when the screw fastener is used to fix the fork terminal of the power supply or ground line onto one of the plurality of wire terminals 720, the depth of the first recess 724A is configured to be greater than a total height summing a thickness of the fork terminal and a height of a screw head of the screw fastener. As such, when the power supply and ground lines are connected i.

Smoke Detector Now, let’s get to the smart part of this smoke/CO detector. There isn’t really a dedicated app for the First Alert Z Wave, but it can be integrated into a smart home environment by using the Samsung SmartThings hub. The whole process is incredibly simple and it requires using the SmartThings app on either your mobile phone or on a tablet and having the First Alert device ready: start the app and afterwards, in My Home, tap Add a Thing and Connect Now; the app will now look for ‘Things’ and as it does so, slide the batteries into the device while holding the Test button wait for the detector to beep and release the button. After it is powered on, the SmartThings app will detect the device it will be called Z Wave Smoke Alarm and you can tap to configure it give the detector a name and select the room where it will be mounted. Note: The First Alert 2 in 1 works with most other smart home hubs from the market, but it is not compatible with WINK. After finishing the process, you can access the device from the app where you can see the percent of battery left, silence the alarm or checking the notifications and you can pair the First Alert 2 in 1 with other smart devices from your network for example, when the alarm gets triggered, you can configure the lights to turn on or activate any available fans. Note: Inside the package, there is the First Alert 2 in one Z Wave smoke and CO detector, two AA batteries, two screws, two nuts and some documents, including a User Guide the device gets a 7 year limited warranty. The advent of the IoT Internet of Things has shown that there’s great potential for connecting all your home devices and creating a single large network to maintain and configure everything using a single hub which is the heart of every smart home. But, while there are some futuristic advantages your whole house can be controlled by a single phone app from anywhere in the world, there are also some disadvantages: while easier to configure, the smart devices tend to rely on more complex functions to properly operate, so they’re more prone to bugs and failures and, because of that, the warranty usually comes with fewer years than on the devices which lack any smart capabilities these devices are also in continuous draft state since the technology still evolves at an unprecedented pace. Even though this isn’t a smart IoT smoke detector, you still can inter connect up to 16 First Alert alarms wirelessly and, since the SCO501CN 3ST also comes with a programmable talking alarm, it deserves a place in this article. Some may argue that smoke detectors shouldn’t necessarily have an elegant exterior and that functionality is more important than the design.

Nest Cam's audio records well enough for most people, but it wasn't as clear as the Foscam C2 and the Flir FX.
