Notion is designed to work in tandem with your traditional smoke detector. In order to maximize the versatility of Notion Sensors, we designed them to listen for the beep from your existing smoke alarm. Sensors use a piezoelectric speaker that can feel vibrations to detect a specific frequency and volume close to your smoke alarm.
This means that Notion is not actually detecting smoke to trigger the smoke alarm task. It also means that the sensor cannot detect other gas leaks like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, natural gas or radon. There is some possibility that Notion may be able to detect an alarm from carbon monoxide detectors or other gas leak monitors, but currently the sensor is optimized for smoke detectors. Notion is not designed to replace your smoke or CO detector.
