MV #16012: CES Unveiled – The Roost Battery Makes Your Smoke Detector Smart

At  CES Unveiled  in Las Vegas, David Henry of Roost introduces us to their ”smart, 9V, Wi-Fi enabled, cloud-connected, lithium power-packed five-year-lasting battery” that turns your existing smoke detector into a smart device. With Roost, there’s no more chirping at 2 AM. You receive notifications via email or app when the battery needs to be replaced, and when there is a problem, and Roost even supports If This Then That.
