Smoke alarms cry wolf so often that they're not doing their jobs anymore. When it goes off, we're not scared, we're annoyed. And we take the batteries out.
With the Nest Protect Smoke & Carbon Monoxide alarm you don't have to wonder what the noise is all about. In addition to an alarm sound, Nest Protect lights up in different colours and speaks to you with a human voice. It tells you what the problem is and where it is.Buy Nest Protect
You can't see carbon monoxide. Or smell it. It's a silent killer that causes early symptoms that are easily mistaken for the flu. Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous at night, when you may not wake up to do something about it.
So Nest Protect constantly looks for dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and lets you know by glowing red and voicing the danger.
Get a message on your smartphone or tablet if the smoke or CO alarm goes off.
Prepare for an emergency with the 'What to do' feature - enter an emergency contact and when something goes wrong you've got a plan. Nest Protect will also notify you long before its batteries get that low so you can replace them.Buy Nest Protect
The stylish Nest Protect features 'Heads-Up' and 'Nest Wave' designed to solve common false alarms caused by burnt toast and more.
The Nest Protect lights up and announces in a human voice the detection of smoke and where its coming from which gives you time to identify the problem. If there's a nuisance alarm, just stand under Nest Protect and wave your hand to hush the alert.
You're supposed to test your smoke alarm every week, replace the batteries and clean it
every 6 months, and replace it altogether after 7 - 10 years. But most people don't know that.
Low-battery chirps ever rattle your dreams? Nest Protect has a better way: Nightly Promise. It's a quick green glow when the lights go out that means the batteries and sensors are working. You can also see the results on the Nest app at any time.
If there's an issue, like the batteries need replacing, the light ring will glow yellow. Just wave at Nest Protect and it will tell you what's wrong.
To figure out if you need the wired or battery version of Nest Protect, just check which kind of smoke alarm you have now, then switch it out for the same type.
If your old smoke alarm isn't attached to any wires in the ceiling or you want to install Nest Protect in a new place, then grab the box that says Nest Protect (Battery).
If the smoke or CO alarm you're replacing has a green LED light and connects to wires in your wall or ceiling, then you need Nest Protect (Wired 230V).
