Can the smoke detectors from the classic system be added to a new base station?

I have classic system and a lot of smoke/co detectors. I noticed the detectors sold with the new system looks the same. I was wondering if my classic ones can be added to the new system. Thanks.

Hi @beeglowbot,

Captain11 is correct in that, while the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors do look the same, there is no cross-compatibility between devices for the Original SimpliSafe system and the All-New SimpliSafe system. The All-New SimpliSafe system uses a much different wireless signal that has roughly twice the range of the Original SimpliSafe system and is now encrypted for stronger security.
