Analysis:

The Roost Smart Battery for Smoke Alarms 2nd Gen is widely considered to be a great Smart Smoke Alarm at its $220 budget. The Kidde RemoteLync Monitor (2015), however, while also a good product at this price point, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well.

It did great in its "The Best Smart Home Devices to Help Seniors Age in Place" roundup where it was named its "Runner Up", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.
