I am moving from another system to Ring. I have previously used hardwired (Ademco) systems with ADT, Smartthings, and Xfinity alarm systems. In my current house, I have a hallway in the basement with the furnace and water heater in a closet with a louvered door. The hall is the best place for a smoke detector since the laundry is also nearby. The smoke detector was in that spot when I bought the house and the previous alarm installers also told me that was the correct place for it to be.
I bought the Z-COMBO detectors for the rest of the house, but shouldn’t have a CO detector that close to the furnace/water heater. I need smoke detection only for that spot.
1.) I have read that the First Alert Z-SMOKE won’t send an alarm signal to Ring. If I purchase a Z-SMOKE unit, will it show in my dashboard? I know I would also need to purchase an alarm listener.
2.) I could purchase a regular smoke detector and alarm listener.
3.) Purchase the Z-COMBO and somehow disable the CO detection (is this even possible?)
