Nest Protect 2nd Generation Smoke, A smoke alarm that you want in your home

Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
1

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.

Looks the part, act the part. . Yes it’s expensive for a firealarm, but lets be honest you can’t put a price of your safety right . Easy to install if you have a current wired fire alarm. The system itself comes in a box with all required bits and bobs for install. It’s easy to install yourself, just make sure you switch off the current firealarms from the mains. Install should take around 15 mins per alarm. Once installed it’s a brilliant bit of kit. Warnings are clear, giving you plenty of time to act on them (my wife love cooking pancakes and is regulary smoking the kitchen out, newt gives us a warning there’s smoke and that we need to act on it or she’s going to set an alarm off, the beauty is also that it warns you on other nests as well. So if she is smoking the downstairs out i hear an alarm on the upstairs one letting me)cannot recommend this enough.

Really good high quality multi option smoke / carbon monoxide alarm. So this is a superb bit of kit, looks the part and has really nice interface when using the app. I installed this in stool on the opposite side of my house to our bedroom so gives me the confidence that if there was a fire (or carbon monoxide leak) then the nest would alert me via the app and also alarm via its siren. It also self checks itself which you can again access via the app to make sure all is well.

Possibly the best little smoke and co2 detectors out there. It has two features that make this 5 out of 5 one is the night light that comes on when you walk past them and the second is ability to remotely silence the alarm. The instruction are very easy to follow and linking to the app and wifi was also easy.

We have found the nest protect to be a great piece of kit and get peace of mind knowing it is always working in the background and will inform you of any problems wherever you are. You get monthly reports and even a motion light comes on after dark when it detects movement.

These are fantastic and so easy to install. Peace of mind once they are and they even light up at night, very cool.

Fantastic product, presents well, feels immediately good quality. Easy to set up, no problem encountered. Quite sensitive, small amount of smoke from overzealous cooking triggers the preliminary alarm, but silence itself if smoke starts clearing up. I have 2 protects at the moment and they communicate nicely and it is great that the voice indicates where the problem might be. I have them integrated with philips hue and it is great that you get an additional light alarm and light colour change to get you through the smoke easier. Great integration with smartphone app, so you can be alerted should a fire start in the house while you are away, no really point having smoke detectors that nobody can hear if you are out. No native integration with samsung smartthings, although community made code can make integration possible if you are so inclined.

I have four of these around the house three of which are placed upstairs. Although these are in my opinion way over priced they have been amazing so far and the cost is outweighed by the safety features. Once you create an account with nest the set up is easy as 1,2,3 simply follow the instruction and they add to your account. All the alarms link together so when the bacon gets a little burnt while you have to answer the door and the house starts to billow smoke, you get a notification on every alarm that tells you there is smoke in x room, if the smoke continues to rise the alarm sounds. I have found it is fairly sensitive but not overly. Add in the carbon monoxide sensor and the overall cost doesn’t seem that much. At night the alarm notices that the lights have gone out and illuminates green to show everything is okay, and white if you get up in the night to provide a night/ escape light. It even alerts to low batteries, and not the annoying constant cherp you get with lesser alarms. I also have them linked to my ifttt account, which is linked to my heating (eco home).

Installed in australia and connected as 240 volt ac. If it sounds will tell me the location of the alarm and not have me running around the house looking for the alarm location.

So far really pleased with nest smoke and co alarm. Sleek design, speaking voice clear, both alarms loud, path night light sensors good idea. The app is clear and easy to follow.

Smart smoke signal security. Firstly, the un-boxing was a treat since the packaging and presentation are glorious. Installation was a breeze for anyone who can screw a screw and operate a smart phone. The only issue i have with this product is whether i can rely on my home and mobile data connection to tell me that there has been smoke detected. A little bonus i noticed the night after installation was that it detects motion at night and puts on a courtesy led. For my money this product is worth the premium over a regular smoke alarm though i do still run the old alarms as back-up.

Awesome after a tricky installation. No more waving a tea towel at the smoke alarm when cooking and no more testing with the end of a broomstick. The unit was however far trickier to install than i anticipated. Other alarms i’ve used have always had a space in the back to house the wiring. This unit doesn’t, so the wiring has to be hidden away somewhere else. This required me to chisel away a significant amount of plaster work on my ceiling and made it very difficult to make everything fit.

Works brilliantly and looks good. The voice alarm is very clear and having two in my small house networked together means i’m even less likely to ever sleep through an alarm.
