Does the notification differentiate between smoke and CO2?

I was hoping that this device worked for water detectors too. However, the Kidde answer to another question rules the water detectors out.

When a person receives an alert that an alarm is sounding, does the notification state which type (smoke or CO2) of alarm is going off?

I agree with other comments about a battery backup.

Hello Packer. In reference to your question, no. This will only detect the UL signal for smoke, which is 3 long beeps, a pause, 3 long beeps, a pause, over and over again, or the UL signal for carbon monoxide which is 4 quick beeps, a pause, 4 quick beeps, a pause, over and over again.

We have a hard wired Kidde smoke/co2 system in our home. I see you have a separate wifi monitor that runs separately. Do you have a device that connects to our wired system that monitors without adding a separate device or is incorporated into our existing system?

Hello Roger. No. This is the only device that we have that will give you remote monitoring but it just plugs into an outlet and listens for the sound of an alarm. You don't have to wire it in. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

I've had this device for a few months and now it is not giving me the option to get text message notifications - it is only sending emails and notifications through the app. It also will only allow me to email people now to join vs. sending a message to their phone number. Please help.

Answer: 
Hello LG. SMS is no longer supported natively in the RemoteLync app, but you can use an IF recipe to send SMS if Smoke or Co is detected at a location. Below is a link to an example Recipe: https://ifttt.com/recipes/337484-send-sms-if-remotelync-hears-a-smoke-alarm .

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great concept, but fails in execution After more than 3 hours of trying and using both an iOS and Android devices to try to configure. I have failed to get it to detect my smoke detector and water leak alarm recognized. It has the option to learn these alarms, but fails to detect them. I can only hope that some kind of firmware update can be pushed to them for them to function better. At this moment in its life, it is of no use. I have another IoT camera that also picks up sound alerts and it did alert me. So such technology is out there, its just this device needs a fair amount of fine tuning. This is a good concept but truly needs to updating/fixing to work (for me at least).. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Possibly a Lifesaver !!!! This is a very simple monitoring device that lets you know any time a smoke or CO alarm goes off in your home. You can receive emails and/or text notices immediately after the alarm has sounded. 1. Plug base unit into an outlet that will always remain on 2. download KIDDE app and set up an account on your android or Iphone 3. set up an account with KIDDE (no charge) 4. set up app and connect your phone home wifi and app together 5. Its easy, Just follow the directions on the quick setup card. 6 Feel safer knowing you'll get instant notification any time a smoke or co alarm goes off July 5, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nifty little device This is a small plug n go device that speaks to you. I was very impressed with the device but not the app that controls it. It comes with an instruction booklet as well as a quick guide card. The words aren't exactly as you will find them in the app but it is simple enough to figure out. I did it all on my samsung G4 phone. The app is free and pretty straight forward. It didn't say that you had to log in to your email for the confirmation address but once I figured that out I was able to log in to the app. Also if you are setting up the device for the first time choose the first option on the screen to sync it with your home's wireless router. Once you do this, make sure that you know your router's password (WPA key), you can then follow the talking device's instructions. I initially installed it in a very crowded storage room. The device is better in a room without stuff in the way. Additionally, I installed it on my first floor far away from the carbon dioxide detector in a storage room on the second floor of my house. The device heard the test alarm from the carbon detector and finish setting up well. The other plus to this device having an app is how easy it is to add a contact directly from your phone's address book. However, I am now away from home and I logged into the app on my phone and it says that the carbon device is monitoring but it also says that it is offline. I looked at the notification history and there weren't any notifications so I suspect that the problem may be that I have very low connection rate on my home wireless. However I then clicked on "monitor details" in the app and it says that the carbon device is online. So I am totally confused! August 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Please do not waste your time or money I saw the many reviews regarding the setup difficulty but I wanted to stay optimistic and try myself. This product is not ready for the market and to further complicate matters the unit is being used for a safety alert. Please do not waste your time or money on this product. I worked on setting this up for over 2 hours without success. I tried everything including calling a friend who is very technically advanced with system such as this monitor. Needless to say this is going back to the store tomorrow. February 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New technology, more convenience and mostly, peace of mind. Today I did the testing of the new Kidde RemoteLync Home Monitoring Device for Carbon Monoxide and smoke/ Fire alarm. It really works. This is a very small electronic device that plugs straight into the 120 VAC outlet. RemoteLync notifies homeowners of a home emergency when they're away, giving peace of mind at a great value. Ideal for a primary residence, vacation home or rental property, the device plugs into a 120VAC outlet, listens for a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm, and uses the home’s Wi-Fi to remotely alert the homeowner on iOS and Android compatible phones and tablets. The installation and set up was very easy; just under 15 minutes. I would strongly recommend this to all home owners who are health cautious and family oriented, so that they will always be in touch with their most valuable asset; their home and loved ones. This is new Era, New technology, more convenience and mostly, peace of mind: thanks Kidde. Please enjoy my short video of the setup and testing. May 6, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kidde RemoteLync Home Monitor Gave this product a shot but wasn’t happy with its results. So to start off, you HAVE TO download their app and create an account with Kidde in order to use this device (RemoteLync Home Monitor). After that, you have to authorize / confirm it through an email link you’ll receive. Then, you just follow the instructions that are provided in the app and documents. I did not have any problems with these steps nor connecting the device to my Wi-Fi. It took about 5-10 minutes to set up. When all is done, you can run a test procedure on the device / app which tests if the device detects (hears) your smoke and CO2 alarms. I was able to run that test successfully and the device notified me via its speaker, as well as email & text alerts that it detected both alarms. Why the low rating then? When I tried to test the device later by making my smoke and CO2 alarms sound off their alarms, this Kidde RemoteLync Home Monitor did nothing. I tried a few times and got no response from this monitor. I checked the troubleshooting and everything seemed to be fine and operational, yet still no detection. What good is it if it fails at its main purpose? Well, perhaps mine was defective, but why did it work then when I ran it in test mode? Anyways, there are a few other flaws or missing features that this device should have – especially considering its outrageously high price tag of 99 bucks. At this price, it should have smoke and CO2 sensors built in… Why depend on and listen to other alarms when it could have the life saving features built in? Also, it shouldn’t only run on the outlet power it’s plugged into. In case there’s an actual fire and the power goes out, would be nice if the device still functioned if it had a 9V backup battery built-in into it. Just my two cents. I would rate it higher if it worked when I tested it. But per my experience, this is not a product I would use in my home. Perhaps if they came out with a newer version considering my suggestions, maybe I would give it another shot. June 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of time and money I saw a lot of reviews that said this was a great product. But my experience was different.What a waste of time and money. I paid $99.00 for the monitor and $149.00 for detectors. I spent almost 2.5 hours of setting and resetting the monitor, until it was finally connected. I looked for a way of inputting my e-mail so I could be notified if it detects a fire. The only thing I could find is how to sign up for a subscription service. Everything goes back to Home Depot tomorrow. I will purchase a different manufacturer. In the past Kidde had great products, this is not one of them. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well I got it connected and working with my smoke detector pretty quickly, which is a good start. I also have the homeboy video. Also connected easily, and app is pretty intuitive. Kind of cool to have reasonably priced home monitoring December 23, 2015
