Easy to Install, looks great.

Replaced my old detectors which kept going off at three in the morning with these detectors in about 5 minutes each - maybe less. Easy to install and they look great. My wife wants me to replace the rest of the detectors in the house with these as they look so much better and LED light works great too - enjoy.
Best smoke-carbon monoxide detector on the market

I'm the kind of guy that researches just about any purchase to death before I buy. Hands down, this is the best smoke/CO detector out there. Most smoke detectors are equipped with either a ionization sensor or with a photoelectric sensor. The first type of sensor is very sensitive to smaller particles, so, they’re very good at detecting fast burning flames, but are also prone at giving false positives (for example, while cooking). The second type of sensors relies on detecting larger particles (specific to slow burning, smoldering fires – such as a cigarette left on the sofa) by using a light source inside a chamber which points away from the sensor, but will deviate its course towards it at the moment smoke enters this chamber. The Halo uses both of these types of sensors, so, it can detect slow, smoldering fires and fast burning fires at the same time.
Doesn't work with all Zigbee hubs

I bought the Halo from Lowes and installed it in one of the rooms in my house. It interconnected with my other hardwired wired Kiddie smoke+CO detectors in my house and triggered them during startup test.
Setting it up in Vera was an issue. I tried connecting it twice as a generic Zigbee device, but it showed up as a temperature sensor. Got on a call with Vera support and they were able to change the device from the back end to a smoke detector, but couldn't add the other sensors to show up (temperature, humidity, motion, etc) that Halo has.
I was told that Halo isn't on their compatibility list and those sensors will not show up.
For now, the Halo is going back to Lowes, as it is only supported with Smartthings, Iris and Echo.
