Roost Uses OrCAD to Bring IoT to Your Existing Smoke Detectors

April 11, 2018 OrCAD PCB Solutions

Roost has developed the first Internet connected smart 9V battery, with its initial application targeting contractors, property management companies, and homeowners as a replacement battery for smoke alarms. But it’s not just an average 9V battery! The Roost smart 9V battery transforms a standard smoke detector into a smart home device. It sends emergency alerts to smartphones and lets people know weeks in advance of a pending low battery level condition. Because the low battery level notification is sent providing ample time for replacement, people will no longer get woken up in the middle of the night from the sound of a chirping smoke alarm with a low battery.
