Smoke Detector

Early warning is the key to escaping a house fire. Interconnected smoke detectors increase the likelihood that all occupants in a home will hear an alarm regardless of where the fire originates. Adding a wireless connection to smoke detectors enables additional features that increase safety and convenience. Examples include: automatic notification sent to fire department, easily retrofit existing installations, remote notifications of alarm event, and low battery notifications.

Microchip offers a family of low power smoke and CO detector devices.

Communications Configuration

Complaint with 802.15.4 Microchip’s robust Sub-GHz wireless technology is capable of traveling through walls in a home or office. This allows the gateway to be placed anywhere in the home or office and still have a reliable connection to Sub-GHz nodes placed throughout the home or office. Using Microchip's MiWi™ protocol stack you could create a mesh network of up to 8,000 nodes that allow up to 64 hops. This is ideal for low power, low data rate applications that are cost sensitive.
