Ascent Capital Group Inc. reported that the company is confident, based on the support agreement reached with its largest creditors, that it will be able to meet its financial commitments and otherwise continue to operate its business as usual throughout the restructuring period, including paying its employees, dealers and suppliers in the normal course of business and providing home security to all of its customers. As part of the anticipated chapter 11 process, the company has secured a commitment for $245 million in debtor in possession DIP financing that will be replaced by $295 million in exit financing at the completion of the reorganization. The support agreement contemplates that all trade claims whether arising prior to or after the commencement of the voluntary chapter 11 cases will be paid in full in the ordinary course of business, and that the company will continue operating its business without disruption to its customers, vendors, partners or employees. Ascent will, subject to, among other things, the receipt of the requisite approval of Ascent’s stockholders, merge into Monitronics. As a result of the merger, all assets of Ascent, including an anticipated approximately $23 million in cash, will become assets of Monitronics.

Many smart smoke detectors hook into additional smart home gear and IFTTT, so you can get even more clever by having the lights start flashing if smoke has been detected, for example. Perhaps the biggest benefit of a smart smoke detector: No more hunting down midnight chirps, since you’ll also get phone based notifications about dying batteries. The Nest Protect is one of the most mature smart smoke alarms on the market, and it’s a no brainer of a choice if you want one of the most sophisticated and reliable smart smoke detectors out there. Alarms are varied, integrated lighting is color coded based on the type of threat, and the product includes helpful voice alerts when activated. In testing, our phone was alerted almost immediately, and the app couldn’t be simpler to master. If you have additional Nest gear at home such as a Nest thermostat things get even savvier, as you can configure the Protect to shut off your ventilation system if it detects smoke, a potential life saver. First is the concept of the smart battery: Rather than replace the entire alarm, a smart battery simply replaces the 9 volt cell inside your smoke detector. The battery contains a Wi Fi radio that can communicate with your home network and a companion smartphone app. The battery also includes a microphone that listens for the smoke alarm into which it has been installed. When the alarm goes off, the battery leaps into action and handles the “smart” side of things, working much like a standalone detector. At present, there is only one smart battery on the market: the Roost Smart Battery.
