    I see this OneLink detector that is wired and Homekit ready... They say it interconnects with others, but it does not actually say if its connected via thread.
    Can you please elaborate on what you mean when you say "connected via thread"?

    Yes, Thread is really cool.

    "Thread is a new IP-based smart home connectivity standard, akin to Zigbee or Z-wave. Thread-enabled devices create a mesh network that interconnects all of the different devices together. With a mesh network, they can all connect and expand their reach far further than any single device could connect on its own.

    Thread could connect lights, thermostats, smoke detectors, contact sensors, and more, allowing them to communicate throughout your home and extending their range.

    Unlike Z-Wave and Zigbee (used by Philips Hue lights), Thread devices don't require their own hub to work. They can connect independently as well as too one another. It can also self-heal, so if one device goes out of commission, it will readjust to the next most substantial connection and keep stay up and running."

    Thanks for the explanation. I need to point out that when you quote text from other sources, you need to provide a source link. So please add one to your post.
