Wired smoke detector

Does Simplisafe have one or are they considering one? Most places (at least in IL) require if a remodel or new construction is being done that at least 1 detector is hardwired for electricity and that one must communicate with any wireless ones (or other wired ones). Seems like a good fit for a wired Simplisafe detector.

SS could easily solve this problem, assuming they will never make a wired alarm, by having a listener, not unlike the glass break detector, that would hear the wired alarm and report it to the system.

As a building inspector, I would love a hardwired smoke detector that communicated with other simply safe devices.  Possibly a good use for a wifi extender integrated into the device.

SimpliSafe has to start producing a wired smoke detector if they want to keep customers or attract new ones.  Not being able to meet minimum building code makes this sensor completely useless.  Your customers want action.

UK building regulations require wired smoke/heat detectors. To meet the regulation I’ve had to install dumb linked detectors in parallel to a few SimpliSafe devices. I’d much prefer to use SimpliSafe throughout to have everything monitored.

In reality I can’t see SimpliSafe developing mains powered linked heat and smoke detectors that would be required to satisfy Building regulations.  A listener would be a simple solution or somthing to monitor the “link” wire in the wired solution.

It would be nice if the Co/Smoke detectors were also able to use 115v power. I have existing smoke detectors that have 115v and battery back up, and linked to each other so if one goes off they all sound.

My local regulations also require any newer house built with wired alarms to only be replaced with wired option. I would replace all mine if there was a wired option available.
