Smoke detectors have been around for a long time. More recently, a push has been made to get carbon monoxide detectors installed in homes as well. It is essential to have both in your home, but making room for two detectors can be annoying. The Nest Protect now senses both smoke and carbon monoxide in one device to keep your home safe. Its smart integration with your smartphone allows you to know that your house is safe with a glance.
Carbon monoxide is a dangerous chemical that is fatal if exposure happens. It is odorless, colorless, and impossible to identify until it’s too late. The Nest Protect sees that carbon monoxide and alerts you if it is in your home.
If the Nest Protect detects smoke or carbon monoxide in your home, it will first give a warning and the ring of light around the center will flash red. A really cool feature of this device is its wave feature. If you know that the alarm is a false one (say you burn toast in the kitchen) you can simply wave your hand in front of the detector to turn it off. If the Nest doesn’t detect your cancellation, it will set the alarm off. There are two different alarm sounds, one for smoke and one for carbon monoxide.
The Nest Protect not only alerts you that it is has detected something dangerous, it also tells you where it is. Sync the detector up with your phone for even more control and a visual display of what has been detected. When it comes to keeping your home and family safe from smoke and carbon dioxide (while also avoiding pesky false alarms from the kitchen) the Nest Protect is the obvious, unrivaled choice.
