Ring Smoke/CO Listener
SKU Code
Ring Smoke/CO Listener is a smart sound sensor for Ring Alarm. This sensor listens for the alarm sound of a smoke and/or CO detector. It does not sense smoke or CO directly. Instead, it adds smart functionality to your existing smoke or CO alarm (or smoke/CO combo).
When your smoke or CO alarm begins to sound, the Smoke/CO Listener activates and Ring Alarm notifies you of the issue, wherever you are. If your system is professionally monitored, our monitoring center is also notified.
