Nest Protect: Smart Smoke Detector

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Tech

Out to prove they’re more than just a one trick pony, the folks behind the immensely popular Nest Thermostat are back with another intelligent home device in the Nest Protect, a mart smoke  and carbon monoxide detector.

Smoke alarms may not be the most sexy thing on Earth, but the Nest Protect is looking to change all that. This smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector was designed to keep your home safe without annoying you. Along with an illuminating ring of light, the Nest Protect will also talk to you, warning you of exactly where the smoke is coming from within the home. If it’s a false alarm (maybe you’re cooking up some burgers), simply wave your hand at the device, and it will shut right off. Protect can even communicate with the Nest Thermostat as well, signaling it to shut off the furnace if that happens to be causing the carbon monoxide leak. Of course you can also control the Protect from it’s mobile app as well. The best part of it all? You no longer have to be woken up in the middle night by incredibly loud beeping noises when those batteries are running low. The Nest Protect will retail for $129, and is currently available for pre-order. [Purchase]
