Nest Protect

By: Carl Laron on April 04, 2017

Bottom Line The 2nd generation Nest Protect effectively detects high levels of CO and smoky fires, and has additional features, such as the ability to silence those annoying nighttime low-battery chirps. The "killer" feature, however, is its ability to connect to the Internet to warn you of situations while you are away from home.
Pros
  • Remotely warns you of danger
  • Built in CO and photoelectric sensors
  • Night mode silences low battery warnings when you sleep
  • Interconnectable with other Nest alarms and devices
Cons
  • More effective against smoldering fires than blazing ones
  • Not as sensitive at sensing low levels of CO
