FAQ

Why did the camera not detect the smoke alarm sound when I tested it for compatibility?
The camera is programmed to detect a series of alarm sounds in case of smoke or fire provided that the smoke alarm device has beeped or sounded for at least 5 seconds. When you enable the intelligent sound detection feature and test the smoke alarm device, please press-and-hold the Test button on your smoke alarm device for AT LEAST FIVE SECONDS.

How soon can I get the alert on my app once it’s detected as a smoke alarm at my home/office?
If the camera detected the smoke alarm sound, our camera will send the notification immediately to you or an approved person on your account. It normally takes up to 30 seconds for the email and push notifications to be sent, but delivery times are subject to the limitations of your network and Wi-Fi performance Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

How do I get the alert/notification of smoke alarm?
If you have the intelligent sound detection feature enabled, the camera will send the app notification as “Smoke alarm detected from CAM at your HOME/ OFFICE” and send a message to the registered email address once the alarm sound is detected by the camera.

What is the minimum distance required to detect the smoke alarm?
The camera is designed to detect anywhere within 49 feet or 15 meters distance from the sound source even with door open or closed at your home. Once you have placed the camera in the desired and permanent location, you should test the intelligent sound detection feature with your detector to ensure normal operation and that the alert is being sent to the app Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

What should the audio sensitivity be set at, especially for successful smoke alarm detection?
If your camera has been installed within a reasonable distance (approx. 32.8 feet or 10 meters) of the detector, you can keep it at normal sensitivity level. After you place the camera in the desired, permanent location, you should test the intelligent sound detection feature with your detector to ensure normal operation and that the alert is being sent to the app Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

How do I conduct a test trial of smoke alarm?
To use the intelligent sound detection feature, you must first test your camera with your detector. To test the smoke alarm detection functionality, place the camera in the location where you intend to keep it and then press Test button on your smoke/ CO detector and hold for at least 5 seconds or hold until 3 cycles of alarm sounds are heard. Otherwise, the C1 will not detect the alarm sound. It is especially important to do this to avoid any false alerts from other similar sounding devices in your house (like microwaves, etc. Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA)

Will this camera detect smoke alarm sounds from devices of all brands? What brands of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are recognized by the Intelligent Sound Detection feature on C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera?
Camera is compatible with detectors of these manufacturers: Honeywell, Kidde, Nest, First Alert. The camera is designed to detect all alarm sounds which generate alarm sounds for more than 5 seconds. If your detector brand is not that listed above, you can still test the camera for compatibility with your detector by following the instructions above.

Is there a chance to have a high detection rate if I install this camera facing the smoke alarm direction?
Our camera microphone is designed to detect the sound coming from all directions. So, you can place your camera wherever you want to focus, but follow the instructions above to ensure compatibility by testing it the first time you use it Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

I see that sometimes the camera sends a false alarm (prompted by sounds from my microwave) as “smoke detected”, what should I do?
To provide the best experience to the customer, the camera is programmed to detect any alarm-like sound. If the false alarm continues try changing the sensitivity level to “low” in sound configuration page. In all events, once you change the setting you will need to re test the camera with your detector to ensure that it detects the alarm sounds and delivers an alert to the app.

Will this camera detect the sound if the camera is installed on the second floor and the smoke alarm emanates from first floor?
The camera is designed to detect the smoke alarm sound as long as the distance of the camera from the source of the beeping smoke detector is within 49 feet or 15 meters, even if it is partitioned by glass/ door. You will need to test the camera with the detector to ensure that it is working and sending alerts to the app.

Will this camera always listen for smoke alarm sound AND any other sound detection as well?
We programmed the camera to detect any sound which meets certain criteria on the sensitivity level at which you configured the camera. The camera will send the smoke alert notification if the detected sound gets classified as a smoke alarm (based on internal libraries), otherwise the camera will send out the notification simply as “sound detected” Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

Can I program my camera to receive audio alerts from beeping smoke alarms only, and no other audio sounds?
Not right now. However, we continue to upgrade the App features and this customization could be part of future releases of the App.

My camera keeps sending me many sound detected alert notifications every day. What should I do? Is there a way to avoid this?
As our camera’s microphone sensitivity is very sharp, it will report whatever audio it hears and discerns in your premises. To avoid getting inundated with many notifications, you can adjust the audio sensitivity level and set it as “Low” on our sound configuration page on the app. Once you change the audio sensitivity level you should retest the detector and camera to ensure that the intelligent sound detection feature is working and that alerts are being sent to the app.

My camera is working fine, but I hear no audio in the stored video clip. Why?
Please check if the volume on your smart device is turned on. If the volume on your smart device is set correctly, and you still don’t hear audio in your video clip, try power cycling the camera (unplug the camera’s power outlet, wait for about 30 seconds and power the camera back on. Wait for the camera to reboot, and that should solve the problem) Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

What will the camera do next, once it detected beeping smoke alarm sound? Will it also send a message to a fire station?
As this is a Do-It-Yourself camera, it would not notify fire station. For further peace of mind, you can upgrade to professionally monitored security from Resideo. The camera will send you an in-app and email notification like any other audio or motion detected event. It could take up to 30 seconds or more, subject to your network and Wi-Fi performance, for the notifications to be sent across. The camera would also generate a 30 second video clip that can be accessed via the App.

Are these cameras recording everything and sending to any other private cloud service?
No. Unlike other products on the market, our cameras do not hog your bandwidth with continuous recording. We also take customer data privacy and security seriously and provide end to end encryption and security in our cameras and cloud implementation, which includes AES 256 encryption, hardware authentication crypto-encryption, secure session and streaming authentication, etc. The cameras are designed to detect any suspicious motion and/or any sound (including smoke alarm sound) at your home. The detection algorithm operates on the camera firmware and the notifications are relayed to you via the cloud Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

In the event of a motion or audio detected event, only detected sound will be recorded for 30 seconds and sent to the cloud for you to view the clips through your App or download the clip to your smart device memory as required.

How long will it take to create recorded video, once the camera detects smoke alarm or any other sound?

The process starts almost immediately, but it could take 30 seconds or longer depending on your network and Wi-Fi performance to view the new clips on your Honeywell Home App Honeywell Home C1 WIFI SECURITY CAMERA.

My smoke detector is 10/20 years old. Will this camera detect the sound?
It should, but you should test the compatibility of the detector and the camera before first use by following the testing procedure described in this FAQ.
