Mobile Ring compatible smoke alarm? Anybody have one?

We have ring cameras and alarm and Iím sure I saw that there was a compatible smoke alarm but canít seem to find it for sale in the uk.

I think a z wave device would be compatible but Iím struggling to find out if the ones Iíve looked at will work with Ring.

Iíve gone into panic mode a bit as I came in from walking the dog earlier and could smell burning. Think Iíve tracked it down to the fridge which Iíve unplugged and trying to see if that was the issue. Got me thinking though that it would be a good idea to have a new smoke alarm that would alert our phones if weíre out.

Also just ordered a fire extinguisher, embarrassed to say we didnít have one.

Any advice on wifi smoke alarms would be great, I hate the thought that the dog could be home alone and something happen.

Iíve got a Nest. Very nice piece of kit to be honest, when Mrs YTs cooking set it off the other day it didnít just go off, it announces it will be starting soon and gives you the opportunity to cancel it. It also sends messages to your phone and will say things such as Ďsmoke decreasingí. It offers a night light when you walk near it. As I have a Nest Thermostat, if it detects CO2 it will also shut the boiler down.

Weíve got Hive, Iíll have a look and see if they do one.

Thanks

I have a nest one too, sounds like the same as YTís. I also have a hardwired monitored one but wanted something that would alert me too if I wasnít home

Looks like there isnít a hive alternative.

Iíve found a z wave one that has an app on Amazon so will give that a go and see if I can get it to work with Ring. If not Iíll just use the standalone app.

On a side note, hats off to Samsung who are sending an engineer for a free assessment of my fridge even though itís 15 years old. Theyíll advice if itís repairable or not.
