Still, it integrates tightly with August's excellent Smart Locks, which itself is compatible with Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant, among other smart home systems — the most of any of the doorbells we tested. 99View at Best Buy$249View at Amazon?It also has crisp, 1080p resolution and a wide, 160 degree field of view — tops among the cameras we tested — and the most competitive storage costs. Ring's app also lets you share videos with neighbors, so you can keep everyone informed if there's someone trying to break into multiple houses or steal packages. Installation is a little tricky, however; we had to install not just the doorbell, but also a separate device inside our existing doorbell's chime box.

The enclosure holds the 4 AA batteries that power the device, while the tiny ringer is no bigger than most USB power adapters and plugs straight into any wall socket. It doesn’t require any wire connection between the two, so it is more landlord friendly than wired models. A microSD card slot lets you store video recordings. Forget about motion detection triggering the doorbell cam unless you add a Spotcam Camera to your setup. A SpotCam app available for iOS and Android connects to the bell and ringer over the SpotCam cloud service, with only a short delay between someone pushing the bell and you being able to view the live image on your phone. It was about 5 seconds in our testing.

The Onelink can be connected to HomeKit and Alexa but not Google Assistant, so you can ask both Siri and Amazon's voice assistant for the status of the smoke detector, but not much else. By contrast, if the Nest Protect detects fire or carbon monoxide, you can have it automatically turn on a security camera, open Lutron blinds, turn on Philips Hue lights, turn off your heat and more. Setup should theoretically be easy—just scan a HomeKit code in the Onelink app—but it took a few tries to get it to work. The Onelink smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is good on its own, but the Nest Protect does more for the same price. What to look for in a smart smoke detectorFire and smoke detection sensors. All smoke detectors use one of two types of sensors to detect fires. Ionization type sensors are best at detecting fast burning fires, while photoelectric sensors are generally better at alerting you about smouldering, or slow burning fires. You should have both types of alarms in your house. Smoke alarms such as the Nest Protect are designed to pick up both types of fires. Carbon monoxide and other gas detection. Even if you don't have a fire in your home, you can be suffocated by carbon monoxide.
