Fancy alarm but with seriously smart features. Would be 5 stars if just a bit cheaper. . Well it’s a smoke / carbon monoxide detector, so it’s not the most exciting thing to review. It’s also a bit over priced, but it didn’t stop me getting it. I recently removed the old smoke detectors in a house we recently bought to find out they had expired more than 5 years ago, and were not up to code (they were wired and not interconnected as the code says they should be), so i went out and bought these as i wanted interconnected ones and i wanted carbon monoxide detectors as well. So these met both of my needs, being interconnected wirelessly and also doing carbon monoxide as well as being a smoke detector. The units do use wireless (as in wireless internet) for the app and for communicating back to nest, but they do not use wireless for interconnecting. So don’t worry if your wifi stops working, they will not stop working or stop their interconnect. They use a different wireless standard called 802. To be frank, i find the app totally pointless unless you can’t reach the alarm to turn it off when there’s a false alarm. I also think the alarm is a little bit too, er, polite. I’d rather when it speaks it would say something like smoke in kitchen. Instead it says things like, “warning, smoke detected in the kitchen, the alarm may sound, the alarm is loud”. Again “smoke in kitchen” seems a lot better to me, but i’m still happy to have an audible alert that tells me where the problem is rather than just a loud beep that tells you very little except something bad is happening somewhere.
Fantastic – and the night light is a really nice bonus. Very easy to install due to some wonderful screwless cable joiners. Would also note that the many screw holes in the mounting are comparable with a standard 1g dry lining socket box which is a very neat way to install this smoke alarm as it creates the necessary void for the plug in connector. Will be looking to replace other alarms with more of these.
Really excellent product, easy to set up and the app works really well, straight out of the box whole process takes 30 minutes, the quality really shows compared to other products and the features it offers are well thought out. The only issue of course is it’s expensive and a premium product, but thoroughly recommend.

“Fancy alarm but with seriously smart features. Would be 5 stars if just a bit cheaper., Looks the part, act the part., Really good product”
I took the plunge and purchased one of these smoke / carbon monoxide detectors a few weeks ago to replace my old smoke alarm and portable carbon monoxide detector. Yes you pay a small premium for this type of gadget but certainly don’t mind when it is this good a package and outweighed by the safety features. * i was very impressed with how easy it was to install. I expected it to take 15mins+ but was installed in less than 2 minutes and setup ready to use 2 minutes later. I do love my gadgets and happy to tinker with them to get them working but was wish every setup was this easy. Nest have led the way, it really was as easy as 1,2,3* once you register with nest, an app is used to monitor and setup the device. * the alerts include such gems as “warning, smoke detected in the kitchen” i like this feature as it alerts you to 1) the cause b) the location, rather than just beeping. * the alarm notices that the lights have gone out and illuminates green to show everything is okay for peace of mind. * and if it detects movement below it, the status light changes to white and provides enough white ‘glow’ to provide a night/escape light.
Installation was simple and well explained in the manual. In-app setup was pretty much self explanatory with on screen directions. The units feel weighty compared to my old alarms, i mean in a really good way. It did concern me a bit having the extra heft on the ceiling, but the provided screws get a grip really well and the backplate offers 16 possible screw points if you feel like adding a few extra. The alarm locks on to the backplate really neat and snug. I’ve only heard test alarms so far. It’s polite enough to tell you the alarm will be loud, which is nice. I do hope they never need to sound off, but if the situation occurs i really feel confident in these doing their job. Nest Protect 2nd Generation Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm (Battery) Einkaufsführer
