I thought you meant thermostats that could communicate with smoke alarms and send notifications to your phone.
These basic puppies, I'm more than aware of them.
My point was that having everything "connected" via the internet is far from 100% a plus and really isn't the "smartest" idea at all.
Sorta like using one giant touch-screen for most of the drivers controls in a fast moving vehicle.... it might look cool and high-tech but in reality it's just bad design.
The alarm-system that I had installed in 1996 was capable of detecting smoke, excessive heat/cold, leaks, motion and individual windows/doors opening then notify my wife and/or I directly by cell-phone. (on premises with battery-backup)
