Yes, our Spec Connected Gateway has been designed for use alongside a network of FireAngel Specification range of Smoke, Heat and Carbon Monoxide Detectors and allows connection to the FireAngel App (iOS & Android compatible). You can add a Gateway at the same time as installing Fire and CO alarms. Alternatively, you can add a Gateway to an existing FireAngel Specification network at any time in the future.
