Say Hello to the Roost Smart Smoke Alarms!

Blog Single

Last year, we launched the Roost 9v Smart Battery that provided homeowners with peace of mind through a simple and affordable retrofit solution. Emergency alerts on your smartphone. Low battery warnings. Friends and family notifications. Now we’re taking it a step further.

Today we’re officially revealing the next iteration of Roost connected home solutions: The Roost Smart Smoke Alarms! Available at for pre-order at $79.99 for the RSA-400 and $59.99 for the RSA-200.

The Roost Smart Smoke Alarms are Wi-Fi-connected smoke, fire, carbon monoxide and natural gas alarms that can now replace old alarms or for new construction projects. Our all-in-one packages include both a Roost Smoke Alarm and a Roost Smart Battery, outfitting your home with connected safety and convenience. Install a Roost Smart Smoke Alarm and you’ll get smartphone alerts if your alarm sounds, along with low-battery notifications before the dreaded 3AM chirp ever sounds. Outfitted with proprietary sensor technology, the RSA-400 and RSA-200 significantly reduce nuisance and false alarms from cooking or steam.

The Roost Smart Smoke Alarm features…

  • 4-in-1 or 2-in-1 detection. The Roost Smart Smoke alarms detect fast-flaming and slow-smoldering fires with Smart Alarm Sensor technologies that combine the benefits of both ionization and photoelectric sensor capabilities.
  • Fewer false alarms. Proprietary microprocessor technology significantly reduces those “nuisance” or false alarms.
  • Alarm notifications delivered to you, wherever you are. You’ll get alerts on your smartphone whenever your alarm sounds, even when you’re away.
  • Convenient and easy connected home. Install the alarm on your ceiling, download the Roost app, and connect to your home Wi-Fi network in minutes. Both alarms are designed for 120V hardwired with a battery backup solution.
  • End the 3AM chirp. The Roost app lets you know weeks before your alarm battery runs low.
  • The ability to alert your family and friends. Unique monitoring feature allows you to invite trusted friends to receive smartphone alerts if your alarm sounds.

The Roost Smart Smoke Alarm comes in two versions to suit the needs of your household. Both alarms include a Roost Smart Battery, as well as a compelling feature set that allow you to choose the safety you desire:

  • RSA-400 = Smoke + Fire + CO + Natural Gas Detection
  • RSA-200 = Smoke + Fire Detection

What’s in the box? Here’s the breakdown:

  • A Roost Smart Battery
  • A 4-in-1 smoke, fire, CO and natural gas alarm or the 2-in-1 universal sensing technology smoke + fire alarm
  • Installation wiring and easy custom connector
  • Quick start installation guide
  • Contact info for Roost customer support

To install a Roost Smart Smoke Alarm, you’ll need a smartphone with the Roost App for iOS 8 (or higher) or Android 4.2 (or higher), a home Wi-Fi network, and a 120V electrical connection.

Both versions of the Roost Smart Smoke Alarm are now available for pre-order today, and will ship in June! 

We’re excited to be shaping the future of simple, affordable connected smart home safety. Come join us on the journey.
