Is there a wired version of smoke alarm audio detectors, such as this GE Interlogix Firefighter smoke alarm detector?  I assume something like this exists for wired systems.

 

 

The reason I gave up trying to hardwire smoke detectors into the elk and instead bought 8 nest protects for my house (a 1920's 8000 sq ft estate/money pit).  There were only two hardwired smoke detectors in this giant four storey house, and retrofitting wiring was proving to be too difficult.    The nests are nice, but I would like for my Elk M1 panel to alert monitoring station and open the driveway gates if the smoke alarms do go off.  These wireless smoke detector audio systems seem like the best way to get the modern features of today's smart smoke alarms, and still have integration with the Elk.

There is but I don't think the Elk would support it as it's a 2Gig sensor https://www.2gig.com...tector-sensor/.  

 

Also, as you no longer have interconnected smokes, it wouldn't work for the wireless Nest smokes even if you had a 2Gig compatible system.  

 

I'm not an Elk expert so I don't know what wireless sensors would be supported but the wireless Firefighter unit does come in a few "flavors". http://encorecontrols.com/products.php There's a version for 2Gig/Honeywell, DSC and GE so if any of those sensors are compatible with Elk, you'd just need to get that version and program it to your system.

Thanks.  I saw these as well, but I was looking for something I can hardwire into my Elk.   I went ahead and purchased the Firefighter model above that works with honeywell wireless receivers as I have one for my Elk.  I will let you guys know if it will monitor the Nests and alert the alarm company.
