Nest Protect review (2015): Improved safety makes it easier to recommend

 

A pricey, but solid addition to your home. The Nest Protect takes something as boring as detecting smoke and makes it slightly exciting. Updated sensors reduce false alarms and are quicker to determine when there's a problem. The companion app, path...

Fewer false alarms ; Works with Nest's other products to tell you when something is amiss ; Multiple Protects can communicate with each other even when yourWiFi goes down ; Alerts you to problems when you're away from home ; Path light feature keeps...

Pricey compared to regular smoke detectors

Compared to the average smoke detector, the Nest Protect seems like an extravagance. It's more than double the price of a garden-variety device and although it's pretty, it's also something you'll rarely look at. But, when you're thinking about safety,...

Nest Protect (second generation) review: Round two for Nest Protect rings true

 

Nest Labs leans into its strengths with this follow-up to its famously recalled connected smoke and CO detector.

The new Nest Protect has a more refined design than the original model, as well a handy in-app alarm silence feature to go along with its already useful connected features and integration with other Nest products and IFTTT.

The history section in the app is empty and it doesn't have enough new features to justify an upgrade from the original.

No other smoke and carbon monoxide detectors available today can match the second-gen Nest Protect in terms of looks and options, making it a great buy for anyone who appreciates design and connected features.

Nest Protect ( Second Generation, Battery, White)

 

And yet, Nest's original Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detector had a big problem. Its 'Wave' feature that literally let you turn off alarms with a gesture was deemed dangerously unreliable after it hit retail, leading to a recall .

Nest Protect review (2nd gen)

 

A review of the 2nd generation Nest Protect, a smart smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector.

If you live in a small enough home where just one smoke alarm will suffice, the Nest Protect is a great choice. It gets very expensive if you need multiple alarms (typically one per floor), but they do work well together and have some useful features,...

Nest Protect (second generation) review

 

Nest Labs apparently loves a good challenge. Its ability to transform boring, utilitarian household products into smart devices beautiful enough to make a design giant like Yves Behar weep (I imagine) is an incredible feat.

A second connected smoke and carbon monoxide detector arrives from Nest, but is this literal lifesaver worth £89?

Nest Protect

 

I was invited to a world-wide launch of several products from Nest early last summer. I asked to review this item and was told two weeks despite numerous reminders nothing happened until I assume a new employee arrived now this is protecting me.

The Nest Protect is available from the link below for £89 with free delivery.

Nest Protect 2nd Gen Review

 

The Nest Protect 2nd Gen wireless smoke detector is heavy on features and boasts a unique aesthetic that serves to separate it from traditional smoke alarms. It is one of only two battery operated smoke alarms in our top 10 list that is capable of...

It has numerous features including smartphone connectivity and safety lights that can guide your way to safety in a dark or smoky environment.

The manufacturer warranty is only for two years.

The Nest Protect 2nd Gen wireless smoke detector boasts a number of impressive features, but its brief warranty period of two years means it may need early replacement.
