Heat Sensor for Fire Alarms

​The system needs a heat sensor to place in the kitchen, where you can't use a smoke detector. My old system had one, and I miss having it.​

Hello jajones20,

Thank you for taking the time to post this suggestion.

If you are referring to the All New SimpliSafe Systems, it looks like the new Temperature Sensor may just be what you feel you are missing. According to the Device and Sensor Settings for the All New SimpliSafe knowledge article, it is set to trigger the alarm when temperatures fall below 41 degrees or go above 95 degrees Fahrenheit by default; but you can also set it to trigger both above or below any temperature between 0 & 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

It is listed under the sensors for the All New SimpliSafe

I hope this is helpful.

SS can you look into either a Heat Sensor for Kitchen.

Something that monitors constantly and when the heat gets to a set level set off all the alarms...

It is law in UK soon that inter linking smoke alarms link to heat sensor in Kitchen.

With many having smoke alarms already it would be an easy sell the heat sensor.

Equally without the heat sensor it will stop the sale of the smokes.

I did ask UK side over a year ago twice with no success...  even quoted the pages stating when would be law.

Just means I will need to buy a heat sensor and multiple smokes elsewhere which is VERY annoying when I have 5 SS smokes....
